The Chesapeake Light Craft Camper-Trailer Kit ($1995) is a perfect example of tiny living with style. Its computer-cut, marine plywood parts can easily to be assembled, even by first-timers and anyone who’s built a stitch-and-glue kayak or small boat.

The kit arrives with everything you need to build the basic camper, except the trailer, but that shouldn’t be a problem as “the architecture lends itself to fitting on just about anything with wheels. Boat trailers, flatbeds, whatever. Just bolt it down and go.”

The polished wooden camper comes with a roof rack for kayaks, canoes, or bicycles, while the living/sleeping area can accommodate a couple up to 6′ 8″ tall to sit up or lay down comfortably and snuggly within. Around the back is a work/storage kitchen cupboard and counter. Large doors on both sides and a 15″ square hatch on the roof provide easy access & generous ventilation. There’s room for a 12-volt electrical system to run lights, fans, a stereo, and charging plugs.

Light enough to be pulled by almost any vehicle, this elegantly-shaped teardrop-style camper is sheathed in a rugged coating of fiberglass cloth and epoxy. Even better, all surfaces inside & out are sealed with epoxy, so you can rest assured this beautiful mobile shelter will last a lifetime.
