Check this out; a real bike trailer house! It’s not built to be a four-season house but it looks fairly complete and lightweight. It weights only 100 pounds dry. It was built by a guy named Paul who likes to build a cool transportation toys like 3-wheeler bikes.
This camper served as his nomadic home for a week at Burningman. It wasn’t made to work for long road trips but it does sound like a successful proof of concept. Every time I stumble across one of these tiny bike houses it makes me think that a bike pulled tiny house is a perfectly logical low-cost solution for some people.

Ok, that is mega cool. To use white corigated plastic for the siding is a very interesting idea.
I still perfer the idea of a colapable trailer, but this could be quite a bit more sturdy that fabrics. I’ll have to think about the best way to do the joints and hinges to prevent water leakage.
I really like this design, other than the fact that you can’t lie down for sleeping. It seems like a pull out shelf like he has in the drawing on his site would work to give you that extra room. I just did another post on a bike motorhome that you really can sleep in. Check it out here: http://tinyhouseblog.com/tiny-house/brians-bike-motorhome/
