I fell instantly in love when I saw the pics of Barry Howard's Micro Gypsy Wagon on Alex Pino's TinyHouseTalk. I don't bike much, but I instantly wanted to take a meandering, scenic week-long bike tour just to have (and show off!) a beautiful little Gypsy wagon like his.

I wonder if a tandem two person wagon would work ? Seems cool . Here in France there are lots of long distance cycle paths with camping at frequent intervals.

Sorry, But this picture looks staged. How would it attach to a bike. It is obviously heavier than a bike, Or a bike and rider. Would it tip you over? Could you pull it more than a hundred feet? It looks cool. If it were lite enough it would be great.
How............ Hmmmm.
Does anyone have any other pictures?

It's not staged J,...I built it and lived, travelled and worked out of it for a year. It worked very well. For stories about my life in the caravan look in the archives of my blog: The aimlessly wandering artist, also more pics on my Facebook Barry Allen Howard

Here's a live link to Barry's blog http://theaimlesslywanderingartist.blogspot.com/

Welcome to permie's Barry....your caravan is wonderful and so are your paintings that I peeked at on your blog. I spent a while camping in Big Sur in the early seventies and always intended to go back for a longer period of time...beautiful

I love that he uses political signs.

I wouldn't like to take it up much of a hill! I will show my teenager when he wakes up, he was talking about something like this (only for a motorbike) just the other day.
