    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...

    Perhaps he was thinking that he could tow her somewhere in the wilderness while she sleeps and leave her there :-)

    This is awesome man. I hope to make something like this in a few years. How much did the whole project cost?

    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.
