There’s a smart new design for mobile homes by Mehdi Hidari Badie. I’ve seen it featured on Dornob.com and TreeHugger.com so far. This flat-pack house on wheels is very a futuristic design that utilizes space efficiently. What everyone seems to fail to see is that this is very much a throwback to the original flat pack homes from the 1950s. Everything old becomes new again!
The Future of Mobile Homes?
Of course, there were no solar panels in the 1950’s and the newer technology is obvious but the design implication is very much there. The use of steel, plastics, aluminum, and thermoplastic insulation is engineers dream come true. This could very well be what travel trailers and mobile homes become in the future.
What’s your take on this mobile home design?
As always thanks for reading Mobile Home Living!

Has anyone heard of Magnolia mobile homes? Mid 1970s I had a 60 foot Tri fold home. Check it out , traveled folded to 10 foot wide opened to 27 foot wide. Great home.
Would really like to see something like this come into life. I’d love to have one.
Any recent news on this concept? It is absolutely great, I would love to keep up to date if it ever become available.
It looks to be a concept design that was entered into a contest. No builders have attempted them, yet.
Any chance you could advise a contact for the makers , love the concept and would like to talk to them ,we are from down under (Australia) and are about to start a tiny house building community
I’m sorry Brian, I believe this was just a concept home. No builder has produced it yet (but fingers crossed!)
Too bad they had no interior shots. Very interesting and I love the solar part. These young designers are really stretching the envelope in a “good”way.
Where can I get one and how much do they cost?
Hi Michele! I found this awesome home on another site and I think it was just a concept home from a student and they haven’t been manufactured yet. I’d say in a few more years though we’ll be able to get something very similar. Ikea has a mobile home concept that’s a bit similar to this, too. I think they were just starting to produce them but haven’t seen anything about them in a few months.
Sorry I couldn’t be more help!
it a lovely potable thing it will make thing easy for traveling loving people. thumbs up for it and the main thing i realy like is the use of solar energy it perfect.
