foamie hybrid RV tiny home

I really want to thank this group for giving the information over three years ago to start building with foam. I was a member then but never posted anything on the build except maybe a couple comments. I started with a teardrop type that could also be loaded on the truck as a camper. I used it both ways to travel thousands of miles. The following year I built a 7x11x7 tiny house trailer with EXP panels with FRP glued to the inside and thin wood glued to the outside and exterior cedar trim for structure; with french doors on the back and a folding deck and roof. Last year I found a 1976 Dodge RV and was able to mount the trailer on that platform and construct a front section to tie them together. I will try to insert pictures and construction details if anyone is interested but for now pictures are on my facebook page "Kenny Foust" and a guy made a live video at an event in January where I did describe briefly the general construction at:

Excuse the rough video and I am waiting for an edited one that was made. The facebook page has a the updates since then with 600 watts of solar.

It occurs to me that this does not fit as a teardrop or tiny trailer. But I started by building one and learning to work with foam and had to try something bigger.

I think it’s awesome where you took the hybrid technology! I will have my friend look into this as he is building his tiny house. I look forward to watching your videos and such. Well done.

Thanks, I was pleased with the outcome and learned a lot. I do think the panel construction can work for small structures like this. Not up to building codes but on a trailer frame it works. There is a wood frame around the door and a frame on the front part. The attached picture is the initial framing of the front with the red first foamie camper behind it and the original trailer behind.
