Man lives in tiny bicycle trailer – what’s inside will shock you

From the outside this tiny mobile home looks like it could barely function as a dog house, but inside designer Paul Elkins has created a fully-functional home.Built entirely from scrap materials, the micro-shelter includes a bed, clothes storage and a kitchen with spice rack, butane stove, counter, three storage bins and a sink.

The single bed can be customised into a lounge chair by lifting the left floor hatch down and the right one up.

And a neatly-tucked-away cool box can be used as a fridge, while storage drawers house other food products.There is even an acrylic bubble window so guests can enjoy a view of the stars while being completely protected from the elements.

However, if the thought of being closed in makes you feel a little uncomfortable, the dome wall can be opened up for ventilation.The nifty camper even has a toilet and solar-powered water system – meaning hot showers are possible.

And if you’re green fingered you’ll be pleased to note there is a window box, which can be planted up with herbs or flowers.

Paul’s 7st creation is so light it can be pulled along by bike, which suits the travel buff who is always on the move.”The idea is that with a little bit of money you can put something together and travel around the country,” said the American inventor.
