This Man Turns Cargo Trailer into DIY Stealth Tiny Home story is a guest post by James L. Parmenter
My Tiny House adventure began in January of 2012 here in New Mexico. Back in 2007-2008, I purchased a repossessed 2 bedroom 14′ x 52′ mobile home from a local park, after renting it for 3 years. The Park went bankrupt so the Bank then took over the property, the Park was sold in 2010-2012, and renovations began.

I put my mobile home up for sale on a bunch of free Real Estate sites, I sold it 2 days before I got evicted from the Park, the new owners needed the space. I had two weeks to vacate the Park. My mobile home sold for $6,000.00 I was asking for $7,200.00. The first week I spent looking at used RV’s, ha… what a joke that was..! I wouldn’t let my Dog live in half of them, let alone me. The other half of used RV’s I looked at for sale, many set in the owner’s back yard for the last 10 years unused. The tires were dry rotted, the appliances had ceased to function and the roofs leaked. The owners claimed everything worked but could not demonstrate their functions or even fire up the Propane devices because they were out of Gas. I walked away every time without even a hint of guilt..!
