The Terrapin Trailer

Peter Pavlowich’s Casual Turtle Campers were featured in Tiny Homes on the Move (pp. 26–27).

Shelter guys,

Hey I thought I’d pass along a few shots of the another recent build. This one was for a gentleman here in Colorado — the model I call the Terrapin. We went with a pretty full interior arrangement on this one. He opted for no painted surfaces (which I usually do), so we incorporated several different species on the cabin’s interior — oak, birch, cedar, and beetle-killed ponderosa pine — so it wasn’t a one-tone wood overload. It weighed in at 1,300 lbs, max headroom around 5′9″, and it goes down the highway just great.

Anyway, feel free to share with your readers if you’d like. And there are more photos up on the site: And as always, folks are welcome to email me and thoughts/ideas/questions directly at Thanks guys — hope things are good in Bolinas. And I wanted to pass along a link to a little video spot a gentleman here in Fort Collins just put together while I was finishing up that build. Perhaps you’d like to include it on the blog. Here’s the link.
