Question: Should I be considering RVIA certified tiny houses?
Answer: Although you can always build a tiny house on wheels without an RVIA certification right now I’m showing you why you should seriously consider saying ‘yes’ to RVIA certified tiny houses.
If you ever want to be able to park and live in your tiny home in an RV park in the future you’ll want to have this certification to make sure you have as many options as possible when it comes to living in your tiny home. Some RV parks and campgrounds will NOT allow your tiny house on wheels on their property if it is not RVIA certified while others will.
Tiny House Q&A: RVIA Certified Tiny Houses
Right now and in the past, tiny homes are being built without RVIA certifications because it costs more money to do so. And if you want, you can go that route. But increasingly more builders are offering RVIA certifications.
I personally highly recommend the certification and hiring a builder that can provide it so that your tiny house is allowed in more places in the future.
And in case you ever want to sell it, this certification might make it easier to sell and more valuable.
