A 1926 Home Built Camper Truck

An early tiny house on wheels… and a family selfie. The Library of Congress has some pretty amazing stuff.  I rarely find what I came for but I always find something pretty spectacular.  This house (click to enlarge) is quite a piece of woodworking.  Shingle siding all glass door, sturdy balcony, beautiful windows, under storage, […]

A Steampunk Teardrop Camper

Some of you Teardrop aficionados out there have undoubtedly seen photos of Dave Moult’s spectacular build.  The best write-up I’ve come across is from the Living in a Shoebox blog.  This is not Mr. Moult’s first build and it clearly shows.  This one has a retro-futuristic Steampunk theme and uses a lot of copper and […]

Peugot

As found on Tumblr, seemingly the ultimate source for all images these days.  This vehicle is probably not practical as either boat or car but would sure be a lot of fun to have.  I can imagine this pulling an amphibious caravan; the ultimate traveler.  How do we get some crowd-funding for this insanity?

Prius House

What an odd combination.  I like it indeed.  The short article is HERE. “It provided a stylish place to sleep at the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria earlier this month while his fellow campers were forced to rough it in tents. “It’s quite well insulated in there. It’s […]

Camper Bicycle

I would love a human-powered world with creatures like this filling our highways, quietly and without belching exhaust into the air.  Maybe we wouldn’t need to expend all our resources and youth expanding the empire to secure our ever-growing need for oil overseas. As things stand today, there are few roads you could safely travel […]

The Tiniest Motor Vardo?

A true micro vardo created by Iosu Vakerizzo, a visual artist, musician, film maker and more.  The video below is a stop-action of him setting up and taking down his moped powered one man caravan.  A very clever contraption I would love to see on the road. Interesting, if nothing else.

Awesome House-Car of the 1920s

Found on the Vintage Everyday blog.  It is thought to be from circa 1926 and is a real beauty.  It has some nice details as well.  The sign on the roof, lightning rods, and even a little chimney.  A great solution of one facing homelessness but still had the car.  Possibly a nightmare to drive?
