This concept has been floating around for a long time and to be honest, like most concepts, I thought I’d never see it actually made. But I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this video of the Sydney Opera Trailer.
Check out this video of a guy who lives in an airstream. He has some interesting things about building and living in tiny spaces.
Here is a pretty interesting travel trailer, while it is pretty expensive (originally posted on the blog “Born Rich”), but the design concepts are neat and could be re-created. One feature I really like is the bathroom. The shower stall folds out around the person. The floor has a drain and when not in use, the stall folds flat against the wall, clearing up the bathroom area to create a open feel.
I was sent this link about Paul who lived in a Tiny Trailer that was towed by his bike. The Trailer was where Paul lived for Burning Man.

Why tow around a bus-sized motorhome when you can create a 100-pound trailer that has nearly everything you need? Meet a guy named Paul, creator of this bicycle-towed camper with a wind turbine on top, a place he called home at the Burning Man project for a week.
He cooks his meals in a solar oven, and heats up water for showers and kitchen use with a solar water heating system. There’s a urinal funnel on the outside, but unfortunately there’s no facilities for taking care of number two. Guess he just had to squat for that. Overall, this is as off-the-grid as you can get.
Paul built this micro house as a design study, wondering what would happen if Swine Flu resulted in an apocalypse that required him to be entirely self-sufficient.
Check out the gallery below to peruse his Spartan accommodations, and don’t miss our favorite feature, the bubble on the end where he lays his head at night, giving him a clear view of the stars.
