Mobile Camper Bicycle Trailer for the Homeless

This project is still in it's early planning stages.  I got the idea from a video I watched about a DIY mobile camper bicycle trailer for the Homeless. Living here in Phoenix AZ there is always someone advertising free scrap. Some materials will require a monetary investment but most I can acquire by watching craigslist free listings.

DIY micro mobile home

Micro Gypsy Wagon

Barry Howard built this really cool micro camper. It pops up from a bike trailer base into an amazing little traditional style Romani gypsy wagon. Measuring about 12 square feet, it's just large enough to hold a one-person bed, a few supplies and some clothing. It has storage built under the sleeping pad that converts into a sitting space with a small table.
