Tiny motorhomes are awesome because they do great on gas, are inexpensive to buy, and can fit just about anywhere (parking space wise).

But we don’t have any THIS SMALL being made in the United States… But *soon* I think we will.

Check these out, they are perfect for simple traveling (not really much room) but enough to get you from place to place efficiently while giving you place to sleep.

More than one person in here? I’m not sure??The Toyota one definitely looks big enough for two but not sure about the other… particularly that little gray one… it’s TINY.

Other downfall is that these engines may not be able to handle going up hill too well but I could be wrong on some models. Anyways this will make up for it in fuel costs.

Would you consider an RV this small??

    I would love something that small. My sister has a family of 7 living in a 3 bedroom house with one bathroom in nowhere TX. I plan on visiting in a few months and I’m seriously thinking of purchasing a couple decade old small RV to hook up at her place so I can have a decent place to sleep and shower. That way,no air matress or competing for bathroom time. This here would be perfect, as I just basicly need a bed and bathroom on wheels. Same for camping. I’d spend most time enjoying nature, but would have my own facility when needed.

      Hey Teresa yeah 7 people can keep one bathroom pretty busy.. I like your idea for your own place. Glad you liked the ones here. I am sure you will find something that works out great. Keep us updated and best of luck! Alex

    As far as “tiny” motorhomes? Well, I’ve owned several, a couple being “new” and one a bit used. There was a 1992 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck-based “Itasca Micro Spirit” (also sold as the “Winnebago Micro Warrior”…) that had an overhead bunk for 2, a fold-down sofa for 2 and a dinette that converted for 2. Plus once I slept across both front seats to squeeze another person in. OUCH! There was a 1986 Renault CitiVan (sp?)-based “Winnebago LeSharo” (also sold as the ”
    Itasca Phazer” & later called the “Winnebago Rialta” when they used the VW Eurovan chassis…). Had 4 “captains chairs” up front, 2 of which folded down into a double bed, and a dinette in the rear which did the same. Surprisingly, I had little trouble getting parts for it, even though the van itself was never sold in the U.S. Lastly, was the 2006 “Airstream Parkway” (upscale model was called the “Interstate”…) built on the Mercedes/Dodge/Freightliner “Sprinter” van. Its double folding sofas converted into a king-sized bed! And the turbo diesel engine achieved between 18 & 25mpg! Their prices? Well, the “Micro Spirit”, new, was listed at $32,000, but I got it for $25,000 “year end”. The “LeSharo” was $3,600 used (i.e. I bought it in 1999…), and needed a power steering unit installed at several hundred dollars. The “Parkway”? WOW! Almost $90,000!!! Each was good in its own way, although the “Airstream” was pretty much out of my league, price wise. YIKES!!! :-O I DO like the thought of using the new Ford “Transit Connect” van or the Nissan “NV200″ to convert to a “stealth camper”. This way, nobody knows it when you drive on a non-RV parkway (wink-WINK!), or gets nosey if you pull off to sleep somewhere for a bit. Thanks for the GREAT postings!

    I actually saw a tiny RV like these, quite a number of years ago, in someone’s yard in Ohio. I was always surprised that I had never seen more of them as the years went by. They had given me a tour of it, and I thought it was quite impressive,

    Myself, I’m quite interested in the Tiny House movement, not because I particularly want a Tiny House- at least, not without a large barn/workshop/storage area (I need room for my tools and books)- but because I want one to take to my Medieval camping events, and regular campers just look too modern. That being the case, I’m working on a design similar to the one by the travelling carpenter, so I don’t need to set up a bunch of outside stuff for an overnight or a weekend, but can expand as needed for week long or longer events, and still look reasonably non-modern.
