Instead of Buying a Cheaply Built RV/Camper, We Built an Awesome Tiny House in a Cargo Trailer

Check out my tiny house, or camper conversion, whichever you want to call it. I designed it, and then built it inside of a 7×16 cargo trailer. It has everything we need to live comfortably while on our adventures, including a super comfortable queen size mattress. After-all, a good night’s sleep is one of the most important things while on an adventure! Otherwise you are sore, tired and cranky! Correct?

    Great job! I am currently building a 6 x 12 V nose. Does the Inverter you used also Conver 120v to 12v and charge batteries? Or are you running a separate converter? I’m trying to figure out my electrics now. Thank you!

      The inverter is an inverter charger. It doesn’t covert 120 to 12. The battery powers everything that is 12 and the inverter charger keeps it charged. In other words when I’m plugged in to shore power the inverter is sending a 12-14 volt charge to the battery while all of the 120 volt outlets are run through the breaker box. When I’m not connected to shore power, the inverter converts the 12 volt from the battery to 120 volt. It has an automatic transfer switch built into it.

    I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile and your videos have answered a ton of questions. Also, your videos helped get the “okay” from the wife to proceed. I will be starting my build soon. Hopefully. I may have some questions for you and I’m looking forward to more posts.

      No, but I can tell you that I have used a 20lb tank that only supplies gas to the on-demand water heater. I currently stay in my camper about 4-5 months out of the year as my normal job requires me to be in it while out of town. It is usually just me, but sometimes my wife will be with me. With that much usage, the 20lb cylinder lasted me 14 months before I had to refill it. So it will go for a while.
