"Tiny Homes on the Move follows in the footsteps of Lloyd Kahn's previous Book, Tiny Homes. This book, however, focuses on dwellings which are both small and mobile, either via wheels or water. The structure of the book is divided into subcategories of Vans, Pickup Trucks with Camper Shells, House Trucks, House Buses, Trailers, Cycles, Sailboats, and Houseboats. The content is built of short, 2-to-8-page, heavily photo-illustrated articles on various vehicle-dwellings and their creators and/or owners. The chosen subjects illustrate lifestyle choices focused on being nomadic/traveling, living inexpensively, and/or recreational use"--

Tiny Homes on the Move chronicles 21st-century nomads — people who inhabit homes that are compact and mobile, either on wheels or in the water. In photos and stories, this fascinating book explores modern travelers who live in vans, pickup trucks, buses, trailers, sailboats, and houseboats that combine the comforts of home with the convenience of being able to pick up and go at any time. With over 1,000 color photos accompanying the stories and descriptions of these moveable sanctuaries, this is a valuable and inspirational book for anyone thinking outside the box about shelter.
