In addition to having a small footprint, though it’s difficult to see, the home’s seemingly flat roof actually has a slope that allows rainwater to be collected into a back tank [2]. The Popomo sits atop a flatbed trailer that it is easily towed, but don’t let the “rough look” fool you: this is a solid home with all of the amenities the modern nomad [3] needs sans the massive mortgage. For roughly $20,000 in materials you can have your very own rolling home and gather no moss as you go!
