Matt sent me an email recently suggesting a solution for temporary housing while constructing your tiny house.
Matt said he had his land but needed a place to stay while constructing his tiny house and these truck tent campers are very low priced. For between $200 to $300 you can have a place off the ground and dry plus have a place to call home for a short time. It does of course require you to own a pickup truck.
The tent in the picture above is he Adventure I Truck Tent which allows truck owners to set-up camp on any ground surface, sleep comfortably and adapt their truck box into an enjoyable camping experience, and because of their unique design no floor is needed. No floor means, easy to clean and maximum use of your truck bed.
The Adventure I Truck Tent is designed to encompass the tailgate and due to its patented conestoga tent style design, the tent is extremely spacious with 145 – 195 cubic feet of tent and truck box space. You can walk in and out of the tent, no crawling in to stand up. That means that there is 5ft 6 inches throughout the tent, not just in the middle. The truck tent is lightweight, weighing only 11 lbs, and is stored in a small stuff bag, measuring 22″ x 11″.
Of course the other alternative is a standard tent and these can be picked up for even less money at Walmart or elsewhere but you will be on the ground and in the elements that go along with that.
Here are a couple of links to the temporary home alternatives featured in this post:
