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 perfect rolling home. And a place for everything! The details here are remarkable including the decorative framing around the windows and planter boxes … with plants!  I believe this sits on solid rubber teeth-rattling tires.  You can probably tell from the caption but this is apparently from Germany in 1922.  I wish I knew […]

Prius House

Experimental house on a Prius from Australia. 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 […]

An Engineering Marvel; Tiny House Truck

That transforms into a modernist castle. As usual, Lloyd Kahn always finds the good stuff to post when it comes to unique Shelter.  The Tiny House Truck is built on an old flatbed and is a true marvel of engineering as it “pops” out into a faux castle.  An appropriate home I suppose for these […]

Early Motor Caravans

We live in an age of motor vehicles.  Few of us could consider, for safety if nothing else, taking to the roads in a horse drawn vehicle.  When the automobile seemed here to stay, caravanners in Europe adapted to the new technology. The earliest models look essentially like their horse-drawn cousins, just stuck onto a […]

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?

Liquid Fuel Stoves and the Caravan Camper

A look at the origins and evolution of our favorite stove… This post was going to be a few words about the Primus stoves we all love and some images I’ve collected from around the web.  As usual, I found myself rambling all over the topic without a clear direction.    Outdoor cooking has become […]

Further Evolution of the Little Vardo

We just put another couple thousand miles on the Little Green Vardo.  It’s always an adventure when you are pulling something like this around the country and it makes for some interesting conversations. Most of the people we meet are great but the comments are sometimes a little difficult.  Of course, the number one question […]
