This is the story of one couple’s beautiful, cozy, and stealthy cargo trailer tiny house conversion named Minnie. It’s a 112-sq.-ft. trailer turned into a very nice camper!
Why is it so exciting? Well, when you see it you’ll understand. But it features a king bed, full bath with toilet and shower, and a flip-up table. It’s really cool what you can do with one of these trailers, don’t you think? With this one, they used the area over the trailer hitch to create a spacious shower.
This is the story of how one man designed and built a stealth tiny house on a trailer for only $4,000. He started with a 6×10 cargo utility trailer which he outfitted to function as a micro home/camper that you can tow with almost any vehicle.
And yes… He did it all for less than $4,000 USD including the price of the trailer. From the outside, you would think it’s just some sort of work trailer, right? But when you step inside, you’ll find a living area, kitchenette, bed, and more. Would you ever consider building your own micro camper like this? What would you do it with it? Where would you go? What would you go see?
Guest Post 2013 6 x 12 Cargo Trailer Camper/bug out/suite build – By B. Winger
At first, we wanted a vintage canned ham trailer, but most needed too much rebuilding, then we thought about building a teardrop, but after seeing cargo trailer conversions we were sold!
We started out with a 6X 12’ cargo trailer that we bought for $1200, brought it home took out the thin plywood it had on the interior, and started from there.
Our budget was $2000, and since $1200 was used for the purchase of the cargo trailer we had $800 leftover for the actual camper build and thought we wouldn’t be able to get much accomplished, but to our surprise, we were able to do it all, as we wanted… By the way, the tags are permanent and registration title and tags were only $15…
