Paul Elkins fell for micro-camping in 2002 when he toured the country in his cabover “stealth camper”. Paul was sure that he could build something better, more lightweight and for less money. So, Paul started building a nomadic micro-shelter based on the Airstream design. The newly designed camper is so lightweight, it can be towed behind a bicycle.
Using 4 recycled fluted-plastic campaign signs from a recent election, a $20 secondhand bike, 6 pine boards ($1 at Home Depot), screws, Duct tape and zip ties, he built his latest micro mobile shelter for only $150.
Calling it a “micro Airstream bike camper”, it’s a 60-pound “home away from home”, complete with butane stove, bread-pan sink, counter, food storage shelving, clothes-storage bins, LED lighting, bed, windows, pee jug, bubble insulation, stereo with MP3 player, and a skylight made out of a 1 gallon plastic tub.
The inside walls are equipped with bubble insulation which assures that the occupant will be nice and warm no matter what the weather conditions!
