The Memorial Day weekend is usually the green light to the start of camping season. If you are a tiny or small camping trailer fan, a visit to the Small Trailer Enthusiast will give you plenty of minuscule mobile homes to drool over.
The site covers trailers that are under 20 feet long and the owner, Pat, is a 2010 Serro Scotty HiLander owner and fan of other small trailers. He covers everything from RV industry news, information on new trailer models, campground and gear reviews, gatherings and he has links to several dozen small trailer manufacturers. Some trailers covered are other retro-style campers, the T@B, teardrops, fiberglass trailers and pop-ups.
I featured Jason’s first Molecule tiny house a while back and Jason has been very busy designing and building more tiny homes. I thought you might enjoy an update.
Built this year, all new construction. This tiny house is 8 ft. 6 in. wide by 20 ft. long by 13 ft. 5 in. high. Including the porch and lofts it is approximately 260 square feet. It has has two sleeping lofts, one 8 ft. by 6 ft., and one 8 ft. by 3ft. The house is built on a new 12,000 lbs rated trailer, and can be towed anywhere.
The home features a full kitchen, including three burner range and oven, and a full bathroom with shower and tub. A fold down 4 ft. by 8 ft. deck, on demand water heater, double paned windows, and full insulation round out the house. Vaulted knotty pine ceilings with ceiling fan and overhead light brightens the whole house. Tough Pergo floors complement the living space. The house has all the necessary conveniences of a much larger home, despite its small size.

If a Moroccan tent and a trailer had a baby, and that baby went to charm school, it might look just like the Opera. The Opera is manufactured by the Netherlands-based Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) and was designed after the Sydney Opera House. The trailer travels around as a nondescript pop-up, but then transforms like a swan into an elegant and luxurious camping space.
The Opera has been designed for people who don’t want to tow around larger, heavier campers or fifth wheels, but still want comfortable amenities while still enjoying the outdoors. The Opera offers what most camping tents don’t: two electrically adjustable beds that can be transformed into one, a private ceramic toilet and two sinks, a 36 liter (9.5 gallon) top-loading refrigerator, a 30 liter (about 8 gallon) water tank and water pump, LED lighting and even a teak veranda. The Opera also has a boiler that supplies warm water to the outdoor kitchen and the exterior shower, hot air heating, two cupboards, and a wine storage cabinet as well as baggage and clothing storage.

Kevin Coy recently sent me a video on how to save thousands on your micro house project. In the video Kevin explains that buy buying a used RV, for a small sum, and then removing the important internals such as: heating, air conditioning, kitchen appliances, propane bottles, shower, toilet, and hot water heater can save you a ton of money. Keep in mind, it is important that you are careful when removing these items, but think of how much you can save by repurposing instead of buying new!
Thanks Kevin for sharing your knowledge on the renewable way of buildin g a tiny house.
