Robert was living in Oregon, hunting, fishing, hiking, and chasing his dreams of working at a local restaurant he admired. He had finally made it — he got the job! — when a drunk driver pinned Robert between the vehicle and a tree and Robert lost his leg. For a long time, Robert felt aimless, until he found himself throwing a bed in the back of his utility trailer and spending a few weeks camping.

That was the beginning of Robert’s journey to his nomadic lifestyle. He eventually got a second, larger cargo trailer and made it into his home sweet home. He loves the desert in particular and has made his cargo trailer house meet his needs.

This couple began their relationship simply — they hiked the Appilachian Trail and enjoyed nature. Then they hopped on the normal ride and were getting further into standard American life when Jordan asked Meghan if she’d like to live in a van.

To his surprise, she said yes! They ended up settling on this awesome toy hauler and altogether spent $30K on their dream home. Here’s to them!

Cargo trailers make a great blank canvas for tiny home conversions. Unlike vans, they feature straight sides which are usually easier to insulate/frame. This couple did an awesome job making their trailer a true home, including a bathroom.

They hang out on a futon from Amazon that turns into a comfortable Queen-sized bed. When it’s all folded up, they have desk space and a living room. The wife paints, and her art is the stunning focal point of the trailer.

Gary Goldberg is sharing his 8×12 tiny house design floor plan as part of our 2015 8×12 tiny house design contest. His is designed as a cargo trailer tiny house. I’ll let him explain it and show you below. 🙂

“Hello. My pencil drawing for submission to the book contest. 8’x12” says to me — cargo trailer. So I laid it out appropriately. The fantastic fan in the roof is for ventilation. In hindsight I might swap the locations of the Dickinson propane furnace and the A/C mini-split interior component, although I like the idea of being able to see it burning from the bed and table. Assumed wet-wall between kitchen counter and shower. Could move potable water tank to front wall. Bunk beds are 32” wide; kitchen counter is 30” deep. Hard wall in front of composting toilet and door could be replaced with something flexible. like curtain. Hope you like it.”

When Bill Southworth of Hybrid Propulsion began traveling with his Rottweiler he was unhappy with where he had to end up staying. That’s why he ended up creating the 80 sq. ft. transforming cargo trailer stealth tiny house I’m showing you right now.

His options before designing and building this unique little cabin on wheels was to stay at motels that were rather unpleasant or high end dog-friendly hotels that were way too expensive. After looking at most of the travel trailer options out there, he was also unhappy with how large, ugly, inefficient, and awfully constructed they were.

Inspired by Graham Hill’s transforming apartment in NYC, he set his mind on creating a way to build his own hotel on wheels. And that’s how this beautiful 16′ Haulmark cargo trailer turned modern micro cabin on wheels was born.
