Architecture with the Cargo Trailer made into a Tiny Home

Cargo Trailer that has many features carried over from boats.
Graham Hill (Elecyr Corporation) has to travel frequently for work and takes his rottweiler with him.  Taking a dog on the road, means that the limited accommodation, is restricted to either very good, or very bad places and that is why Hill decided to build his own home from home.  His first project was a horse trailer that was destroyed by Hurricane Irene.  The second one, the one featured here today, was a conversion of a 16' cargo hauler from Haulmark.

Everything is designed to either assume a double use, or to take up as less space as possible, without impacting comfort.  No windows on the side walls means that more of the space can be utilised in a more efficient way and the portholes on the ceiling, maintain privacy and air circulation.  His work involves producing a hybrid propulsion system for boats, he used some of the technology and design features on his trailer (see the toilet).  This is a quote from him "I wanted it to use the battery and power management technology that we're developing at my company, Hybrid Propulsion; I wanted more water storage so we could travel for a couple weeks without having to find a water source."
