Why You Need a Mini-Trailer in Your Backyard
And when you're over that, you can pack it up and drive off on vacation
There's a new housing trend we're loving--the mini-trailer. Often less than 50 square feet of floor space, these little guys pack a lot of design into a small footprint.
Check out the two models we love--one best suited for your back yard office, the other perfect for towing along on a beach or mountain getaway. Added bonus: They're not large enough for more than two people--so you're getting privacy or romance with the deal.
Your Backyard Happy Place
The HC1 trailer designed by L.A.-based Happier Camper has panoramic windows and a huge rear hatch, so it feels much roomier than it is. It's great as an office: The interior is designed as a set of cubes you can rearrange to make as much storage, counter and seating area as needed. Curious? Rent a model from the L.A.-based company for as little as $250 for two nights.
Your Vacation Getaway
Design snobs, you have found your mobile home. Crafted in Carpinteria of marine plywood outside and Baltic birch inside, Hütte Hut has a waterproof cotton-canvas canopy that opens tall so you can move around comfortably. Although you’ll always want to be sitting away from it to admire its elegant and pricey ($63,900) Eames-inspired lines.
