Home extension on wheels – Our little project.

on

We have embarked on a journey. A journey towards a better camping life. Hopefully. Might of course also be, that we are turning into Dutch people, or German tourists. I hope not, but you never know.

This all started when we spotted one very cute teardrop caravan speeding on a French highway. My eyes met Waffle’s, and there was a moment of common understanding. We were moved by the gracefulness of that little house on wheels. It did not take long for us to start planning on getting one of our own.

After a thorough search online and a visit on a fair we came to conclusion; building our own was the best option to get something that would really meet all our needs, and be somewhat affordable.

I have received quite some wishes from people to write a report on this project, so I will. There will follow a series of posts on this project as it moves along. I hope to write a useful guide for other people who might consider building a small caravan themselves.

The rest of you, who think we are a little crazy, let alone stupid, welcome to follow our project too, maybe you get to laugh at the end, or on the way.

  1. Brilliant idea! Super interesting to follow your project. One day I want one too, a van or caravan. Have to start working and saving for it first though, or perhaps start with getting even a car haha 🙂 What are you expecting to be the approximate budget?

      Glad to hear that 🙂 I hope I’ll be able to get something sensible out of it on paper 😉 Our budget is around 3000 – 3500€. Hopefully we’ll stick to that with all the bits and bobs. A closer report on where all the money goes follows later 🙂
