Man Designs, Builds and Produces Off Grid Micro Cabin Trailer

Here is an unusual off grid micro cabin trailer that’s off road ready and can even function as a luxury (and mobile) micro cabin.

It’s built by a company in St. Augustine Florida and is named the ADAK Adventure Trailer.

I’ll show you the entire travel trailer that’s ready for just about any adventure.

Plus there are two videos you’ll be able to check out on it too (one with the designer/builder too).

Surprisingly enough there is a bathroom with shower inside (you’ll get to see it in one of the videos at the bottom of this post). But truthfully the camper is a bit bigger than it looks. Inside there’s about 116 sq. ft. of space.

It’s hard to tell in the photo below but there’s actually a good sized shower and toilet inside (near the kitchenette area). You’ll be able to see it better in one of the video tours at the bottom of this post.

    Nice design but pricey and no solar panels included.

    I only see 2 inch walls so I have a hard time believing it is all season.

    UGH! Definitely not cozy or friendly. Looks like a man-toy for a wannabee soldier who never saw combat. PLEASE consider a different exterior before you have PTSD sufferers scattering when this Militia Mobile down the street. I’ve lived in Florida my entire life, and this does not remotely represent the good things about traveling in the state.

    Alex, I think you missed the boat on this one, honey. 🙂 In a nutshell, this product represents what Tiny House people are trying to get away from. This is a very expensive man-toy for “sportsmen,” as per the interview with the manufacturer, designed for people in designer camo with power boats, 4-wheelers and all the other crap that tears up what’s left of Mother Nature. Not exactly in the typical tiny house price range, either.

    If this thing pulled up beside me in a campground, I would leave before the inhabitants swaggered from their equally macho and expensive truck.
    I’m with Sally on the fake military look. What are they trying to prove?

      Ha, Miss Doris, we both said Toy when we saw it. Now I know what it reminds me of, the old Tonka trucks my brother had.

    I agree with Sally and Doris.

    Well designed and built but the exterior looks like an army tank. Not in the tiny house category. It belongs
    in a marsh surrounded by guys who look like they just stepped out of an L.L.Bean catalogue.

    The Australians made these type of trailers for a long time. It has been due that the United States come up with such a product, too. And its great that they have a boat building background because the quality of the RV stuff isn’t sufficient to last when you go off road.

    These are not for the guys going to camp grounds to hook up water and power its for off the grid.
    It seems to me well thought because there is less working surface for branches, a great slope angle even at the sides and a lot of edge protection.
    I love it!

    I love it! The tough looks make me think it would be good for a woman on her own – who’s gonna think it’s a girl? LOL

    I have just seen your video and the Trailer – Love it —– Thinking seriously about it —– could it be exported to New Zealand!???
    Please send me full specifications and prices for any variants of this vehicle as quickly as possible. I believe that this would be very well received in this country amongst the sports fraternity.
    Yours sincerely

    I can see why some don’t like it, but my reaction was . . oh yeah!

    I would repaint it [i personally love Olive Drab, but it could just as easily be a nice bright colour], i’d also take the logo off – it does look like a target . . . . . but I do like the overall design and , and i really like the interior layout, innovative use of space, funky fixtures and the overall design.
    Also, the galley kitchen at the back is clever.

    The whole thing gave me some inspiring thoughts . . . like . . this year i have to learn welding.

    This is definitely Aussie inspired. Ruggedly built for the off road off-gridder. Not a tiny house but for the hunter or a peppers ultimate buggout bag.

    I really like it – perfect for off road camping. If one can afford one of these, I don’t imagine it would be all that expensive to have it wired for solar panels.

    Growing up, my family used to go camping in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California, and in the deserts of the Southwest. There are many great places where a trailer like this would be able to go that a regular RV or trailer wouldn’t. When we went to these places, it was always tent camping. I don’t think there were trailers like this back then. (I’m talking 50 – 60 years ago.)

    No, definitely not in the tiny house range but still cheaper than what I would’ve guessed for something like this. Remember, you’re paying for someone else’s labor, new materials, etc. And definitely, “wow!”. Talk about luxury camping! This would be excellent for someone who enjoys a full time, on-the-road lifestyle. I like the idea of the independent suspension and the ability to take it safely into very remote and rugged terrain, all while being completely self-contained and insanely comfortable. I agree that adding solar panels would be a cost effective upgrade. You could then use propane to supplement your energy needs, as a backup energy source and to extend your stay off the grid.
    I think the interior is deceptively understated to allow for decorating (or not) to your own personal style -girlie and/or manly. 😀
    This camper combines the very best of RV and boat design concepts in building every component to be multifunctional, utilizing every nook and cranny to it’s fullest capacity and ensuring that everything is “battened down” and/or on gimbals to keep anything from moving while in transit. I’ve lived in some small places before, to include a 27′ Fairliner (power boat) which was extremely comfortable so I know without a doubt how comfortable this camper would be and could easily see myself living in something like this full time.
    While this is way more than most of us want to spend on a tiny home, I do like that this was included for our viewing pleasure because all of these types of designs and features just give us more food for thought and so many great options to incorporate into our own tiny house plans.

      I like it but its heavy. At almost 5 thousand pounds, its not going to be all that easy to tow offroad if the terrain gets aggressive. The weight is the real turn off for me. People complaining / ridiculing the look shouldn’t be so negative. I’m by no means a ‘wanna be’ militant, and yet, design wise, [as an industrial designer], I appreciate the way this thing is designed, and it’ll certainly be easy to maintain heat or cool air inside due to the composite 1 1/2 in honeycomb walls. Due to the weight I’m forced to look elsewhere. I’m in the market for something, but I have a Toyota FJ and at 4,800 pounds it’s too heavy for me to get enthused about. Looks well made but a tad bit over priced for the base model. At $50,000. for the base model is far too high. If 50 grand included the ‘options’ which really should be standard for 50 grand, It’d be a lot more interesting. I’ve considered ‘tiny houses’, but they’d fall apart on me because I tend to like to relocate often enough to eventually end up destroying the integrity of a houses construction. Though I DO in fact like the tiny house idea.

    Hi Everyone!
    Having been in the military…it looks very military! Don’t get me wrong…it is cool.
    But a little spendy…..
    I currently have a 1971 Daimler Benz Unimog 404 4×4 Inline 6 cyl motor Gasoline from the German Army Radio Room (no radio components). It was remanufacture in 1976 and mothballed by the German Army inside a warehouse. First owner purchased it in late 80s -then stored it in a barn. 7,100 km= 4400 miles ORIGINAL.
    I was considering turning into a Mobile Hunting Camper. IT is currently in the Netherlands. Just received the shipping quote today to Florida to send home where I will either convert it or sell it.
