    $20,000 for a 16×8 box you have to finish and furnish your self is considered affordable? I put a 60 foot used mobile home on my property with all the appliances for $6000, I have since put a 10×20 metal building fully insulated with appliances for about $3600

      Like you said, “used”, what you got isn’t new and thus you paid a greatly depreciated price and aren’t counting the additional cost of repairs, maintenance, that it won’t have any manufacturer warranty, etc.

      So you’re not making an equivalent comparison, as this is affordable for something actually built new, still has warranty, etc. You’re going to pay a lot more for a new Mobile Home, for an actual equivalent comparison…

      It’s not that costly considering today’s material, labor prices and the trailer it is put on costs money too. Lots has changed the last 3 yrs.
      But isn’t it time to stop using stick built and to start using far lighter materials, better design that are strong enough to be the trailer, just attach the axle and tongue it ? This should be made in under 2500lbs and only need 1 axle.
      And if going to move a lot, be low and somewhat aero?
      I do like this one isn’t tall, has just 1 roof angle and open plan with kitchen, bath at 1 end. So for many newbies, it is worth the $.
      I’ll be building a light aero solar one that floats/boat too this fall that size designed to be pulled by EVs with built in furniture as part of the structure/frame probably for $30k. The supply chain is so bad I’ve had to redesign it 3x so give small producers some slack.

        The Incred-I-Box is constructed with ESP (Engineered Structural Panels), basically steel version of SIPs.

        They’re getting the home tested in a lab for official numbers but so far they’ve had several people standing around the middle of the roof, set up a demo with just the roof structure set up like a ramp that they then set up a series of test from weights to a smart car and finally a 1 ton truck parked on it, which finally damaged it but it was still supported.

        Production is also geared towards minimizing waste, with nearly all material being used for something. Like off-cuts from exterior structure is used for interior walls and storage loft, any left over insulation is ground up and used like baton insulation or fill for spray foaming the trailer, metal scraps are used for trim, etc.

          Cored structural panels of many types are very strong and cover longer distance between supports.
          That they are very light cuts both building and running impact.
          I’ve thought about doing metal side SIPs though likely just buy them in the form of commercial freezer wall, roof material. Using double sided tape designed for it you can glue sheets together to make inside, outside walls, put in a form and fill with foam carefully. You then have a house wall, roof, floor.

      What year was that? My dad did something similar about 10 years ago, but I’ve been searching high and low for a used mobile home for $10K, even $20-25K and…nada. And if I do see one, it’s overpriced for the shape it’s in. I even considered buying new and those prices are ridiculous compared to 2-3 years ago. At least with this, after a bit of DIY, you could be mortgage-free until you can afford to upgrade to something else.

    We took one for a test drive yesterday, as we have a V6 Silverado with a 7,000lb. tow capacity and were concerned. We loaded our Truck with everything we would put inside the Incred-I-Box, and the Unit towed very well.
    The roof line slopes from the tongue end to the rear (8 foot up to 9 foot), and that really helps with how it hauls.
    So fun to decorate how we like! No cookie cutter looks like an RV. Plus we can DIY as we have the money. We love the minimal maintenance aspect and low weight, that’s what drew us to the Incred-I-Box. More durable and better insulated than an RV.

      I watched a video about a woman who bought a USED ‘teardrop’ travel trailer for camping, paying $20K. After its first use, she hated it because it was cramped and she kept bumping into the built-in cabinets (even though she is a small person). She wouldn’t have had those problems, had she paid the same price for a NEW Incred-I-box. Granted, she would need a more powerful towing vehicle, as her 4-cylinder car was challenged to pull the 1500 pound ‘teardrop’ trailer.

    There is a company that has been building outdoor sheds from the same type of panels for decades. The sheds have proven to be virtually indestructible, and they don’t leak.

    I would make some changes. I would put the hot water heater under the sink. I would put in a different sink faucet, the one they have do not last long I know this because I had one. I would put in an under cabinet frig where the closet is and a free standing apartment size stove where that empty space is on the sink wall side in kitchen. Just my thoughts.

      Well, that water heater is too big to fit under the sink but there are smaller ones you could get…

      While, it’s intended to be owner DIY’ed for finishing details, etc. So, as long as you can make those changes, that’s basically what they want their customers to do with this model.

      They’ve moved away from custom because it cost too much for them to still offer options at this price range and takes too long. So limiting it to just a few custom units a year and rest is model homes.

      The Incred-I-Box, is a series model built on an assembly line and that’s how they can get the price this low, along with careful selection of materials, etc. So, aside from tweaks they may do to improve the general design, it’s the same for every build. Though, it’s fine if you want something removed or not installed, like the sink. They’ll just skip that and deduct it’s cost from the build. So you can install the one you want when you receive the home.

      Though, one recent change is that over hang for the countertop is not a folding table. So you can have more flexibility on how to use that space, like remove the table and put a stove there… Maybe keep the table and use it as a block you can put on stove when not using it…
