Have you ever considered turning your car or compact station wagon into a micro cabin? Then consider how this man made his Skoda Octavia vehicle into a micro-camper!
He started out by simply folding down the backseats to create room for the custom camping equipment that he built for the car. It consists of a sink, storage, and a sleeping platform. See how it all works below!
Just when I think I’ve seen the tiniest living quarters, someone like Jimmy comes along and completely astonishes me! You might think someone living out of their car must have a messy, packed-full vehicle, but not Jimmy. Everything inside his Tesla has a home and is perfectly organized to maximize space and efficiency.
He even built in a cool storage system in the back which allows him to pull out his kitchen set up (that includes a sink, grill and even “running” water). Somehow he carefully included everything he needed and absolutely nothing more or less into his design. Check it out!
This 112 Sq. Ft. Yellow Box Truck Tiny House and Office is a guest post by Sandy Caswell – share yours too!
This big yellow truck was born a 1998 E350 Ryder Moving Van with a Triton V8 under the hood and a 16-foot box. My husband, sons and I converted it to my mobile home/office.
We added a 30-inch patio with fold down steps onto the back. After we insulated and paneled it, the interior dimensions are 7.5 x 15 feet = 112.5 sq. ft.
It is wired for electric but there is no running water. I discovered that by cutting my hair short, I can wash it and my entire body in 1 gallon of water warmed in the microwave oven. To go to the bathroom, I use a 6-gallon pail, lined with a heavy black plastic bag into which I scoop cedar shavings.
I live in it about 6 months out of the year, traveling from festivals to glamping rallies and visiting friends and family. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!
Art Cormier lives in a tiny house on wheels. But when he travels, he doesn’t take it with him. It’s too heavy. So in this video, he’s going to show you how he turns his VW station wagon into a tiny RV. And you can use his ideas to turn your car, station wagon, or minivan into a tiny motorhome too!
By the way, Art also teaches other people how to design and build tiny houses on wheels at Tumbleweed’s tiny house workshops throughout the country in case you’re interested.
If you want to learn how Art uses his VW station wagon as a micro motorhome when he goes on trips or travels on the road then enjoy the video below. And would you consider turning your current car into a micro RV? Let us know in the comments. Thank you!
Right now I’m sharing how this woman turned her Honda Element vehicle into a Micro RV so she can go on a two month cross country trip throughout the United States and Canada.
Her name is Michelle Sevigny and she even found her dog, Lucy, in Nova Scotia while on the trip. In the video below you’ll get to see exactly how she set up her Honda Element and her little secrets learned and shared while camping and traveling with it.
Before she embarked on this adventure she considered an RV, VW Westfalia, and a travel trailer. But RVs were so expensive, the Westfalia’s were also expensive to maintain/repair, and hauling a travel trailer was just kind of out of the question. Plus, the cost of gas.
So her solution was to create a Tiny RV out of a 2005 Honda Element instead. And she did just that. It’s great on gas, easy to drive around in, and only a few minor modifications were required to make it all work.
She even works out of the van on her location independent business, Dogsafe Canine First Aid (www.dogsafe.ca). And she plans on continuing to save money to build her own tiny house on the west coast of Canada (British Columbia) soon.
Back in September of 2010 I featured something called a Swiss Room Box which turns your current car or van into a camper instantly.
So it’s basically a kit that turns your current vehicle into a micro motorhome with features similar to that of teardrop campers I’ve shown you.
If you were to order it you’d be able to install it in your car within 10 minutes. Once it’s installed it takes about 3-5 minutes to set up and start using on a campsite or wherever you might be. It’s a lot faster than tent camping and so much more affordable than motorhomes or travel trailers. And the Swiss Room Box gives you space for cooking, eating, sleeping, and even showering.

This is the story of an anonymous reader who turned his Toyota Echo car into a stealthy micro camper. I suppose you could even call it a tiny motor camper. Have you ever thought of converting your car into a stealthy car camper so you can easily sleep in it while traveling without being noticed?🤔
So you could get to places and travel farther without having to pay for hotels and such every night. Or maybe even camping out of State Parks, campgrounds, and such. ⛺️ So I wanted to show you this.🚙
