Unlike other parts of the world, rarely would a Nigerian money bag be silent with his wealth. Flaunting it and letting the world know they are bucked up is the way Nigerians roll.

This is not the case of this CEO who is worth $820 million but lives in a trailer.

He opted for the simple life by living in a trailer park instead of a mansion.

Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, can afford to buy any type of home that he likes yet he opted to live a simple lifestyle.

Hsieh, who is known as one of the most frugal millionaires in the business community, chooses to live in a Las Vegas trailer park.

However, the RV lot that the business executive calls home may differ from the the negative stereotypes associated with other trailer parks.

The 'trailers' are gorgeous silver Airstream caravans, which retail for $48,000 for a 2013 model.

Thirty homes are lined up in a neat row, each with about 200 square feet of space.

Units have two TVs, Bluetooth stereo systems and wood paneling, though the size of the showers reportedly makes it difficult for large adults to bathe.

Hsieh has nicknamed his caravan 'Llamapolis' and he shares his trailer with his pet alpaca named Marley.

The Airstream Village also includes Tumbleweed Tiny Houses, wooden RVs that have about 130 square feet and do not have couches or kitchen tables.

 It was a vacant lot before he snapped it up and it's virtually unrecognizable since its makeover.
