As our Full-Time home since April of 2020, Elmer Gene has taken us on too many adventures to count. I'll do my best to give you all the details:

We bought Elmer Gene in October of 2019 and spent almost 6 months converting him into our tiny home on wheels. We wanted to keep a simple, uncomplicated build and prioritize light in the interior and floor space for our then 3 year-old son (now 5) to play freely. We chose to use electricity as our primary utility, and wanted to avoid propane. We also went with a composting toilet in order to avoid black water tanks, opting for grey water only from the sink and shower. We could typically dry camp comfortably for 5 days with the 3 of us, but your milage will vary! 

Currently in Indiana, but would consider deliver/meeting elsewhere. 

Feel free to check out our IG for more pictures @adventuresofelmergene.

if you have read this far, you will likely ask "why we are selling it". We have felt the call to explore serving as foster parents in the future, and it turns out that you can't do that if your home has wheels... Who knew? Elmer Gene has taken us to some of the most amazing places we have ever seen, allowed us to forge new relationships with some of the most incredible people we've ever met, grown closer to one another as a family and couple, and helped us strip away layers of ourselves that we have been carrying around for too long, discovering who we like to be the most. It's with a lot of mixed feelings that we are choosing to move forward, but that is where we are being called. Excited to meet whoever is going to continue this adventure!
