I like it. It would be perfect for when my mother-inlaw-comes to visit.
I dunno; it's pretty well equipped: might make your mother-in-law want to hang around longer...

This is awesome man. I hope to make something like this in a few years. How much did the whole project cost?
perryk99 (author)  freeza361 year ago
about $1500. in materials, I already had the trailer and the $1500 doesn't count a Honda 2000 clean wave current generator.

Outstanding! I love micro architecture & RV projects.
And very well equipped - are those bars on the window, to prevent someone from breaking in, and theft?
Was that a boat trailer to start with?

I was looking for something more sturdy and using carraige bolts on the outside. I had part of an old dog kennel that I cut down to size to fit the window.. Most items were made from scratch except the vinyl window it came from Home Depot for apx $30. and was very easy to install and it looks nice and works well. It was a boat trailer that I already had so it helped to keep the cost down. Plus it already was licensed. Thanks for asking.

First post. Found this site while searching for a way to use a 30 inch metal brake from Harbor Freight
