Tiny Pod Caravan Project


Pod 1 1.  I bought this cute little fella off ebay.

pod 3    2. Bit of a tight squeeze but he just fits into my garage.


pod 2 3.  I've decided to reduce the weight by changing the suspension unit and tow hitch. The original chassis is from an old caravan and is very heavy to move around by hand. The suspension unit has now been removed and is ready for a lighter version.

pod 5 4. Looking inside to the front. The walls and celling have already been covered by the previous owner, and some storage space has been constructed. The covering is going to be removed and replaced with new, and a change around of the cupboard space layout.

 pod 6 5. Inside looking to the back. There are 2 small port hole windows, that I will be replacing with bigger windows to let more light in and there is also a space in the roof for a small skylight. The floor in real wood covering, again this will be replaced to reduce weight.

pod 7 6. Removed old heavy hitch ready for it's new lighter hitch.

pod 8 7. New lighter hitch which is perfect for the nose weight.

pod 9 8. Lighter Axle in place ready for welding.

Window  9. At last we can see the light. The original port hole window has been filled in and the new windows on both side have been cut and fitted ready for the rubber window seal.

ply lining  10. Rest of the Ply lining has been glued and screwed in place.

ply ling completed  11. Ply lining is now completed, and filler has been used to cover the holes and uneven areas ready for the Aluminium sheeting.

first aluminim skirt  12. First piece of Aluminium is the angled skirt.

side view of ply  13. Door side is nearly complete the door has been cut out.

back view of ply  14. Back view, each sheet over laps by a good 12" on top of the next for a good seal.

front 15. The front is complete with the wiring ready in place for the lighting. (you can just see the skylight)

door and window 16. The Door and window are now been fitted.

roof light 17. Our guilty pleasure is a posh skylight.  It came from a Motorhome and has a wood surround with spot lights set into it.

carpet lining 2 19. Skylight, this has to be the best bit we can now watch the stars at night.

carpet lining 3      20. A view looking in through the door at the new cupboard space at the front.

carpet lining4 21. T.V space in the middle, the 2 cupboards on the right of the T.V will have doors the one on the left is left open and the long area above the T.V is also left open.

bottle and frdige box 22. Front box is where the Gas and Cool box will be stored for transit.


 lights 23.  Back view of lights, awning rail on the left side along the roof and also the metal trim covering the joins on the metal panels.

floor carpet and start of bed 24. Floor carpet has been laid and the start of the seating/bed has been built.

hitched up for a run round the block 25. Hitched up for a quick run around the block to see how it handles, and it handles like dream.


 POD 25 26. Looking through to the back seating and bed which pulls out.



 POD 27 27. Looking to the front right, small drop down cupboard and below cupboard for clothes, we travel light :)

POD 29 28. Looking to the front left, space for our pooch to sleep and above to the left small open cupboard and of course not fogetting the T.V

POD 30  29. Last of all my guilty pleasure, my rooflight with spot lights.




At last enjoying the goodlife, first big adventure for our little Pod Island hopping on the Outer Hebrides (looking out to sea from the Isle of Barra)  We have a full awning to go on the Pod but we pitched for one night and put our porch on.  Lovely Jubbly!!!!!!
