Micro Camper Travel Trailer

The couch pulls out to a queen size futon bed. Wired with 110v. Equipped with a small refrigerator, cabinet with drawer, small pantry, lighting fixtures, and outlets. There is a private area with a port-a-potty and sink vanity storage. Plus a sink that can be hard plumbed if parked in a permanent space.

Optionally you can add a roof mounted AC since the wiring is all ready for it. There is a nice size back door with a screen so you can let the breeze flow in without the bugs. From the outside you have four nice windows making the interior bright during the day. Great ventilation as well with all these windows.

Micro Camper Travel Trailer

Designed to be pulled on getaways or to set up as a permanent tiny living or workspace.

Was for sale on Craigslist (http://santafe.craigslist.org/rvs/3059500621.html). The listed price was $5495.

Would you have considered it for $5495? Or would you rather build one yourself?

    For such a small space it is well put together. I could see it as a camper, but not full time. Very nice, should sell quickly!

    $5495 is way too much for that, my son and I built ours with a small shower , a camper style fold out and it was 8 feet wide, 12 feet long for around $3k with trailer included in the price
