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!
Tiny motorhomes are appealing because you get better gas mileage and they’re easier to drive around in, park, and clean, right? Especially when comparing to larger motorhomes and travel trailers.
Almost everyone that I talk to that likes the idea of tiny houses loves the idea of really small campers. Unfortunately, most of these are not available in the United States. On the bright side, I think it’s very feasible to convert a minivan into something like this with a little creativity and the right tools. The pop-up feature might be the most expensive part of the project, what do you think?
This one is a Piaggio commercial vehicle converted by JC Leisure. It has a pop-up roof, pull-out bed, and a kitchen unit. There’s even a hidden port-a-potty along with some storage for your traveling needs. The great thing about a vehicle like this is that it can easily be used as a daily driver as well as an adventure traveling machine!
