Im currenlty building a house on a tractor trailor, its 7.5 meters long a abit under 3 meters wide. Im using angle iron for the frame and very thin planks of timber for the walls with felt and 1 inch insulation, ist only going to have 1 bedroom but am hoping to get a sofa bed for the downstairs compartment. If anyone every undertakes a project like this one let me no if you need tips/advice ect

RE: House on wheels!!
if your intending to use it all year round is one inch insulation going to be enough?


sound's like an interesting project and would be good if you could get photos up

Im working on getting pics up. Im hoping to have 2 log burners in it so hopefully that will keep it at a good temperature even in the harsest of winters

RE: House on wheels!!
I bought a used caravan off Craigslist for $1500US a couple of years back when our economy hit the skids. Folks were selling off good stuff at despiration prices. Everything works, bathroom, kitchen, furnace and water heater, and I have enjoyed it. I even lived in it short term while I was remodeling my hovel.

It is about the same size mentioned at 33' hitch to bumper and 8' wide.

It is a bit of a load to tow and spends much of its life parked in the lot and being used as a guest house.
