Gypsy Coach

Bill Young of Lafayette, Colorado not to far from Boulder has a company he calls Gypsy Coach. He contacted me recently and wanted me to share his work with you. This is another great option for a mobile tiny house. Bill’s gypsy wagon, like the sheepherder wagons of the American west, has been crafted to take you back in time and give you the experience of a bygone era. The wagon can be used as a portable guest house, a special work space or a romantic retreat.

Gypsy Coach

The gypsy wagon has been built on a new trailer chassis that has dual axles with electric brakes and is licensed for the road. The outside dimensions are: 16 feet long (plus a two foot overhang above the door) by 8 feet wide and it has a clearance of 13 feet. The empty weight is 5900 lbs.

Victorian details are the hallmark of the interior. Wainscoting wraps around the lower level and is capped by chair rail molding The walls are covered in period correct floral wallpaper and the curved ceilings have also been covered with a deeply embossed wallpaper imported from England. The living room is flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows to provide great views and genuine hardwood covers the floor throughout. The sleeping loft also has a curved ceiling and enough room for a king size mattress. Two windows in the loft provide cross ventilation.

There is a kitchen area with a base cabinet and countertop and an antique style water crock provides the water. One thing that sets this gypsy wagon apart from all others is a bathroom: complete with a chemical toilet and a floor drain that makes it shower capable. The interior has been wired for 110 volt service and has five outlets. Other types of plumbing systems can be added like a composting toilet, water tanks, water heater, RV style toilet and holding tank.

To find out more contact Bill Young, at 303-661-0331 or by55555@hotmail.com to arrange a showing. The price for this wagon is $23,600. Or contact Bill to arrange construction of your own custom piece. Visit the Gypsy Coach website.
