Mike Krabal and Building a Simple Camper

Mike Krabal is a do-it-yourself builder of tiny campers made from wood.

These are lightweight livable campers or even a tiny home.

His most recent build is a 6 x 10 foot little wooden camper that will sleep up to four people.

It has a tiny bathroom and even a shower.

He is experimenting with a new power source using Ryobi 40-volt batteries (as well as shore power).

Mike experimented with a few building techniques and didn’t hold anything back.

Using a Harbor Freight 1720-pound trailer the camper can be easily unmounted and remounted as needed.

This is also Mike’s first trailer that you can stand up inside with a standing height of 6 feet.

Condensing a six-month build into a one-hour video was a challenge but Mike includes all the necessary details to show you how he designed and built this little gem.

Would you consider living full-time in a little camper like this?
