    Well over $200 sq/ft?

    I googled RVs, found a random site in Dallas, and found a brand new 35 foot fifth wheel (2017 Keystone Sprinter 357FWLFT) for $42,997. Sleeps 8, has a full kitchen and bath, 4 bumpouts, etc.

    Don’t get me wrong–this is a very nice-looking trailer, and it is probably more luxurious than said RV, but the pricing is insane. The difference is most of what the pickup you’d need to tow it would cost!

      RickC that is likely the cheapest 5th wheel in that size you could possibly find! There many that cost over 75 to 1ooK so this price is not extreme at all. Build it yourself and you could save some serious money though!!!!

      Rick C, the difference is a lot more than just how it looks…

      RV’s are built to very basic standards because the priority is for them to be as light as possible for easiest towing and they are not intended for full time living and thus actual comfort in all 4 seasons is a secondary concern.

      This invariably means the standards of construction for RV’s are usually barely adequate beyond what concerns road safety and account for the large number of repairs and maintenance costs involved with owning one, to such a degree that unless you know how to fix it yourself you can be on a waiting list over six months long and have it being repaired more than you get to use it…

      Versus this THOW, which is steel framed, which means it’s frankly over built to such an extreme you can probably park you car on the roof of it.

      Needless to say it will likely last a lot longer and you’d end up paying a lot less in maintenance and repairs, which can add up to a lot over time.

      It’s also something that was custom made for the owner, something you’d normally have to spend hundreds of thousands and even into the millions to get with a RV because they’re mass produced products made on an assembly line at a factory and to take time away from that assembly line to make just one custom unit means you need to pay them a premium for their time and effort that they could otherwise be cranking out multiple units…

      Otherwise, you’re stuck with whatever the default models offers with maybe some minor optional changes but nothing truly custom.

      If this owner had wanted, they could have had beds for as many people as they wanted but that was simply not what they wanted and so it wasn’t designed that way but it could have if that was what the owner wanted… This is the nature of having something custom built for you…

      While something made to be lived in means it not only will last longer but it will be a more efficient structure that will require less energy to keep cool or warm and thus lower your energy costs over time as well… along with simply making it easier to live in full time and having it cater to the owners specific needs/wants…

      A well built tiny house can be made to handle just about every temperature and weather extreme there is, within reason…

      Many builders will also let you choose what materials are used, so if you’re concerned about things like off-gassing, using ethically sourced materials, etc. then a Tiny House means you can have the control to choose what materials are used…

      Versus a RV, which is whatever is most economical for the manufacturer and thus usually pretty heavy in VOCs, etc.

      Prices, however can vary significantly in a custom build product… It’s a bit like getting say a Ford F-150… Basic model, but price can still range from over $30,000’s to just over $92,000 depending on what features and options you choose to include, which pretty much all determine the level of functionality of the final product…

      Similarly, the price of this THOW is from what the owner chose to have included in the build… It’s only priced this high because of how the owner wanted it configured…

      So there can be a significant difference for what you actually get for the money…

      But it also depends what you want out of it… If you only need something temporary and don’t need something custom made for you then a RV may be the better choice but there are reasons why some people would choose to pay more for things they may value that a RV doesn’t provide but something like this THOW would…

    Mike,
    What is the name of the company that makes your trailer?
    I love this THOW! If I ever have that kind of money, you have become my number one builder. There are 2 others, that I love, but they do not come near to your craftsmanship! I would make it off grid….water catchment and solar. I am sure that will put it over $100,000. It is a dream right now…but, still, I can dream!

    I would want stacking washer/dryer in the bathroom, and put an armoire, elsewhere. And a small drawer dishwasher!! Do you have part of the split A/C outside, in it’s own little shed? The water heater?

    Oh, how I wish I had come to that festival in NC! I am disabled, and there was no way to keep me out of the sun, or not have to stand for so long.

    • James D. September 4, 2017, 4:42 am

      keepyourpower, if you put in a stacked washer/dryer then that cuts into the loft space… Right now it’s a hanging rod space, along with the opposite side, so it serves as the closet space… So that would be the trade off as you’d lose one side of that hanging rod space…

      Though, if you eliminate the left side rear door then the stacked washer and dryer could be placed there instead or sacrifice a bit of the living room space… But those are just the options if you stick to this floor plan…

      The exterior mini-split is left exposed and is mounted up front, near the left leveling jack just under the loft area…

      The utilities are accessible from that red exterior door, with the utility hookups on the white panel next to it… The electrical panel is accessible from the interior behind a hidden panel by the loft stairs and the space is directly opposite the washer/dryer combo… So they basically integrated the shed into the house…

      If that space wasn’t being used for the utility/mechanical room then the second washer/dryer unit could have been placed their instead and you’d just have to add a shed on th

      -the rear side…

    Love the layout on this one & amazing that it’s towable. The closet space is the bedroom is awesome. Great job. 🙂
