Be prepared to fall in love with this tiny cabin on wheels. This is just one of the mobile tiny houses that you can find inspiration in and gives you an idea of the infinite number of tiny house design possibilities you can do. Whether it be small homes, tiny cabin on wheels, campers, tiny apartments or this short bus retro. This bus conversion so amazing, and goes to show what a little body work and paint can do. This particular tiny house design renovation was dreamed up by Winkleman Architecture. The design team took a 1959 Chevy short bus and turned into a beautiful vacation home on wheels. The finished tiny house design is nothing short of awe-inspiring. You could load up a couple of kayaks or canoes, to add to your fun. If refinishing an old bus or camper is something you might be considering there are plenty of inspiring designs you can draw ideas from. You will most likely have to redo the plumbing, the beds, seats, power, and interior floors and walls but that is just part of the fun. Of course, not everyone feels creative enough to take on projects like this, and that is where sometimes a little help from a design team or some friends is needed. But with that said there are plenty of people that can help you achieve your dream.

Over the years Off Grid Quest has showcased many adventure vehicles, but nothing as special as this old-school bus converted into a camper. The mobile tiny house was restored to perfection by Winkleman Architecture for a client. This 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus can safely carry 12 passengers, and converts to guest quarters for two people with two single beds, or joined in the center as a queen bed. The tiny house design aesthetic was inspired by the mid-century and has a charming 60′s, hippy-chic, bohemian feel, executed with an arts and crafts design approach. The sixties vibe is complete with power, plumbing, and a funky interior including a beautiful pine floor, tassel lamps, multi-colored beads, and Moroccan-style prints. The result is a cozy cottage design on wheels for unique family adventures into the wilderness. This tiny house design on wheels is complete with plumbing, a toilet and sink and power 120v and 12V. Perfect for all your off-grid needs.
