    The 5th wheel Ting House is so unique and beautiful. I have a 5th wheel trail that could be used for a foundation. It’s got an 8′ ceiling, used to transport camels. I can send pictures. Contact me via email. Thanks, Bev

    A good example for a compact 5th wheeler which can be shorten by a fold up porch at stern. A little bit to rustic for my taste but a good size for travel with ease.

    I really like the bedroom, very well done. Over all I like the tiny home. Just one thing I didn’t like, and that is the burners so close to the sink. I like the cabinets and that it has overhead ones especially. Nicely done, I just wouldn’t want that burner next to the sink, for me that would not work!

      Something to consider, for sure!

    • Bigfoot April 27, 2017, 5:38 pm

      Yes a very nice unit. I also didn’t like the stove where it’s at & no real backsplash other than wood? This would have been a good area to do a tile backsplash.

    How tall can you be, to stand in the bedroom, without hitting your head, on the ceiling?

    I am with you Dian,a about the burners. But, at least they are not electric!
    If it has an electric starter…that might be a burden.

    Otherwise…I love this one..Don’t care for all the wood..but could whitewash it.

      It’s 12.5′ high… Knowing the wheels take up the first 2 feet or so… figuring about 5 feet total up to the bottom of the Gooseneck and subtract floor and ceiling thickness… Should give around 6.5′ foot… maybe more, as a guest estimate… Maybe 7′ at the highest point if the bed wasn’t there… Plus or minus a few inches…

      If they had gone to the maximum of 13.5′ then it would have been close to 8′ and maybe enough room for a low profile ceiling fan…

      I owned a 5th wheel and my 6’2 hubby never had to bend in the bedroom and never hit his head.

  • keepyourpower April 24, 2017, 10:36 pm

    Sorry about the way I typed your name Diana. Also…a sofa in the kitchen…nah…not me.

  • keepyourpower April 24, 2017, 10:37 pm

    What kind of toilet does it have?

    • James D. April 25, 2017, 12:34 am

      Dometic china bowel toilet…. Black Water tank means it’s a regular water flush toilet that’ll need occasional dumping of the tank, just like a RV, and or hookup to a septic system if parked with utilities access.

    Can you send me a copy of your plans, please.

  • Gabriella April 25, 2017, 10:03 am

    Outside looks rustic, but inside is spacious cozy. I like the kitchenette and the ground floor sleeping area . Iwould just change the beanch and sofa upholstery Iwould see turquoise or fuxia color. The sleeping area is inviting, because the people search joy and confort. Let me dedicate this old country song: “Mississippi” of the brave Pussycat.

    Hi Natalie and Alex: question? anyone hear from Cahow lately?
    I miss her comments so much.

  • Larry Burns April 25, 2017, 9:31 pm

    I see tiny home’s on slab mount, I see tiny home’s on trailers, also on fifth wheel and I see tiny home’s build in buses but I never seen a tiny house built on a truck, that is what I’m going to do. It be like an RV only better.

    • James D. April 26, 2017, 4:25 am

      Truck conversions have been done before… There’s even a small number of people who did the conversions all the way back to 70’s/80’s… and are still living in them today in their golden years…

      A more recent example is a couple in Australia that converted a truck and since they’re basically artists/performers, it also transforms into basically a multi-level castle when they set up camp and unfurl everything…

      There’s also people who have made Tiny House boats…

      Back to Trucks… You can look up Expedition 4×4 conversions for examples of modern conversions that are like supped up RV’s/Tiny Homes… Some buy the trucks from government auctions of surplus military vehicles, etc. as they can be gotten for cheap… But these are usually old vehicles and the mileage may suck…

      On the other hand they’re usually all terrain and can tow just about anything you want to mount behind it…

    • Dex April 26, 2017, 5:49 am

      Trucks are already big, empty boxes – ready for utilities, insulation, & finishing. If windows & doors are camouflaged & light-tight, they’re also much easier to park overnight in almost any parking area – unless very large.

      • Dex April 26, 2017, 6:24 am

        If truck is tall enough, beds can stay against ceiling when not in use, then lower by pulleys (set up to multiply user’s power, for safety) or can swing down front latched position (“legs” hinge to walls & sides or ends of bed support, so that bed touches ceiling when up & swings down to allow about 3.5’+ of room to sit up & scoot around; leg length = 1/2 of needed headroom + 1/2 bedding thickness above hinge, use same distance from ceiling to hinge point on wall; hinge can be 1/2″ steel bolt + bushing; be sure to use washers to spread load if wood is <1" thick, and use glue & tightly fitting hole, either way)

      We also have a whole section dedicated to housetrucks 🙂 http://tinyhousetalk.com/category/housetrucks/

    the open trusswork in the main area is really beautiful…and not often seen in THOWs, as the structure doesn’t really need it in most conditions.

  • GreenAcresWV April 26, 2017, 10:52 am

    I love the construction quality of this THOW… beautiful craftsmanship. You get a lot for your money at this starting price. The recycled bead-board throughout lends continuity to the color scheme, even if the furnishings don’t. And the bedroom….spectacular ceiling!

    My preference would be to lose the back porch and door, move the kitchen to that end, and have a larger indoor living area. I agree that the sink and stove area is a little too cramped…but really like the cutting board cover. And I MUST have counter space for my 4-cup coffee maker!

    I also prefer not to have built-in seats, benches or tables. After seeing Michelle’s Pawsitively Tiny last year, I’m all about making the place an extension of my personality!

    I am also fascinated by the idea of a drop-down bamboo (or other light-weight material) porch off the side of my THOW and using sun sails as porch roof and the old-up eve extensions to keep rain from running down the sides.

    Two last comments – I’d like to see information on the insulation qualities of the tiny homes in every post, and the dimensions. Make it three…what’s the weight?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 26, 2017, 3:44 pm

      Whenever we are given those details from the builders or can find them online, we make sure to add them to the post 🙂 If it’s not available in our post, though, I always try to include links to sellers/builder who you can ask 🙂

    • GreenAcresWV April 27, 2017, 9:10 am

      make that “fold-up eave”

  • Betty July 25, 2017, 7:42 pm

    This is nice, but don’t like the layout of it.😞
