Video: For some, camping's all about the sleeping in the great outdoors. For others, it's about creating ridiculous structures to sleep inside. If you're a fan of the latter, DIYer Paul Elkins built a tiny camper that you can pull with a bicycle. The design here uses a bunch of old political campaign signs, some pine boards, a set of wheels and a variety of other random parts. Packed inside all that is a foam pad for sleeping and a bunch of shelves. There's no doubt that this entire project veers toward the ridiculous, but if you're interested in alternatives to traditional camping gear, it's worth taking a look at how Elkins made this.
