"Camper" Tiny House

The Camper Tiny House is a truly tiny home with the trailer being just 5m long. You'll need the mindset of a minimalist to live in this home full-time, or treat it like a caravan and use it as your holiday home on wheels - taking it to a new destination every summer. Designed to be small, lightweight and easy to tow, it's our most affordable tiny home yet. It comes with a full bathroom inc shower, vanity, and a composting toilet. The clever design features a counterweighted queen bed that retracts into the ceiling when not in use. The bed comes down over a built-in couch that pulls out into a bed to sleep another 2 people. The kitchen is small yet packed with everything you need, including a 2 burner gas cooker with concealed vented range-hood, a microwave, a bar fridge, and even a wine rack!

Sleeping Spaces

With both the pull-out couch and the dropdown bed, this house can sleep up to 4 at a pinch, but we'd say max 2 on a regular basis.
