Marsha is a long-time Tiny House Talk reader as well as a tiny-home-dweller. She just sold her amazing THOW in Arizona because she’s moving back home to North Carolina to be closer to family. While she’s planning on building a new tiny house in NC, she needed something to live in during her road trip/move.
So what did she do? Built a tiny house in her truck bed! Here’s what she told us:
Because of a gasket leak that was fixed with a liquid sealer, I had to keep this camper very light to try to make it home to NC from AZ, so 4 simple arches, 1/2″ plywood, white heavy duty tarp, and cardboard boxes for storage. Left over memory foam became a “rug” down the center to save my knees. It has an electrical port and 2 screened windows and redwood floor. Living out of it for 2 weeks now at my friend’s house, just two more weeks to go until school is out, and I can head home to my son’s farm where I can build another tiny home. Enjoy!
She even decorated the exterior, which I just love!

This gives a whole new meanings to “tiny living,” and she keeps it so cozy!
Here’s the plywood shell she created.
Interior of the shell (notice the electrical port).
White paint makes it look more finished!
Love the little roof overhang on the back here.
It’s all in the details.
Another close up of her counter top space.
Twinkle lights brighten up the space at night!
And here it is again all decorated! So quaint.
