The Next Big Thing: Micro Cabin RVs

If you have been following the tiny house movement, you may be familiar with the concept of building a small home on a trailer.

This story is a bit of a twist on a similar idea. It’s called the micro cabin, and the concept is simple — build a small cabin on wheels and create your own tiny RV.

If this idea sounds interesting check out a few examples. The first is just under 1,500 pounds and is built on a 6 x 10′ base. The owner created this micro cabin using a pop up tent trailer as the base. He built around the tent to create his own house-style RV. You can see more photos of this unique micro cabin RV on Tiny House Talk.

Another example of a micro cabin is called a Terrapin Turtle. It’s named for the sleek design and oh so cute interior. This cabin is under 1,400 pounds and is built on a 5 x 8′ custom box trailer. These units are for sale at Casual Turtle Campers.com
