Woman’s SUV And Micro Camper Tiny Home Tour


Join Julianna Rose for an exclusive tour of her unique overlanding lifestyle, traveling and living in her custom-modified 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser and a robust military generator trailer. This is a journey of self-discovery, resilience, and the joy of embracing the unknown. Julianna introduces her faithful companions: Taffy, her 9-year-old Shih Tzu, and Tuba, a reservation rescue dog. Alongside them is Wreck, the FJ Cruiser, that has transformed from being her home to now towing her new dwelling.

Purchased eight years ago for approximately $32,000, the FJ Cruiser underwent extensive modifications costing between $15,000 and $20,000. The investment reflects Julianna’s commitment to a mobile lifestyle, blending practicality with her passion for overlanding.

Discover Julianna’s efficient kitchen area in the FJ Cruiser, featuring a dual-zone 80qt fridge, a propane stove, and a handy induction burner. Her focus on maximizing space is evident in her clever storage solutions, including the transformation of the FJ Cruiser’s rear into additional pantry space.


Julianna takes pride in her DIY approach to the Cruiser’s electrical setup. The system includes a 300 amp hour Enduro power lithium battery, a solar mppt controller, a 1,000W inverter, and solar panels mounted on the roof and hood. This self-sufficient system powers her mobile home and all its appliances. In the camper, Julianna utilizes an induction cooktop, an air fryer, and an electric kettle. Her creative use of space includes a modified kitchen pot holder for secure storage while on the move. Though she hasn’t yet decided whether to move the fridge from the FJ Cruiser into the camper, her current setup works well for her nomadic life.
