Paul Elkins is a cross country cycler who rides across the United States.


When it’s time to rest up, he tows his “stealth camper” behind him. It’s “micro-mobile home” that he built for only $150. Using recycled fluted-plastic political campaign signs, pine boards, duct tape, screws, bubble wrap, and zip ties, he’s managed to squeeze a ton of useful items into the tiny space.


He’s got a camp stove, a sink, storage space for food and clothing, lighting and even a skylight!



“It does show the possibilities of a new way to get around and travel or to live. You don’t have car insurance, you don’t have home insurance payments. What do you [get]? Food.” Paul says. “For people who can’t afford a pickup truck and to build a little home on a trailer, maybe they could just do this and tour around. For people who are adventurers and don’t mind pulling a little weight and taking their time traveling, this I think would be a fun way to go.”
