    Although gigantic aside a 5th wheel travel trailer it comes without sleeping loft and its shorter in length than most THOW gooseneck.
    I like the white and uncluttered style inside.
    The roof wouldn’t be my choice and the dark color either.
    Price seems to be fair.

      Actually, the bedroom is the loft… 5th wheel/gooseneck just means it doesn’t have to share space with anything below it but that also means you can’t have anything below it and thus it’s a trade off as you’re actually getting less total space for the given length of the structure but you can dedicate the remaining space into a bedroom and of course it’s better for towing…

      If you didn’t need to tow it a lot, though, you could opt instead for either a dedicated bedroom or share the loft space with something that doesn’t require standing height and thus you can give more height to the loft, as you’re really only dividing the total vertical headroom, which is usually up to around 11 feet for a 13’6″ tall THOW…

      For example, if you created a storage space below the loft then it would be just like you see the 5th wheel/gooseneck but with storage below it instead of just the hitch.

      Alternatively, you can reverse it and put the loft below and something else above it or have something like an elevator bed to make it truly flexible.

      All that said, 5th wheel/goosenecks tend to cost more because the cantilevered structure requires additional re-enforcement and thus additional work/costs… While commercial RV’s tend to use the better towing characteristics to allow for bigger total sizes, which allows for toy haulers and/or lengths up to over 40 feet and possibly over 20,000 lbs to even over 26,000 lbs but you’d need a special license in some states if it goes that high in weight…

    James, thanks for your comment and explanations.
    My biggest concern about towing a THOW is the overall height and lack of a streamlined front. Beside that lofts aren’t for older guys and the FL heat.
    I don’t understand why the majority of TH builders don’t use a roof shape which is low at the front and increasing towards stern probably pitch or double pitch style with ridge across driving direction or two single pitch ones with the second sloping to stern. Is it cost only?
    Beside that proportions width/height ratio and air drag coefficient are awful, common dormers make it worse. Most of them are looking like shrink houses
    and the one here isn’t an exception.
    I am wondering why nowbody is coming up with something in between of an RV and THOW because there are SIP without heavy wood covering available which allows a strong but light structure without siding in and out.

      Hey Michael, yes, it’s basically cost but also those who DIY tend to keep the construction more simple and things like complex roof shapes can be difficult for a non-professional builder to handle.

      Some also work from pre-made shells which aren’t optimized for a specific floor plan.

      But there are builders who make hybrid RV/Tiny Houses… Tiny Idahomes, for example, has a number of builds that combines features of both and even made a custom toy hauler tiny house for a wheelchair bound customer a few months ago.

      While there’s a few custom RV builders out there who border the line between RV and Tiny House construction as well but they’re meant more for recreational only use.

      There’s just a large number of people who aren’t getting Tiny Houses to travel in and may even opt for Tiny Houses on foundations. So aren’t as concerned about towing characteristics, but there’s builders catering to the whole range out there and many will create whatever the customer wants, which is the benefit of a market that’s primary all custom builds.

    No Compromise here At All…… ! Since the space you can build on the gooseneck Can be standing height !!!
    We are just starting our build on a 40’+9′ Gooseneck trailer that we will extend to 40’+ 10′ and it will be 7′ standing room on the gooseneck and up to 10′ in the rest of the trailer, with a 13’x 4′ slide out in the living room the kitchen up in the rear and the Bathroom in the middle with a big walk-in /storage closet between the bathroom and the bedroom. There will be some more storage on top of the bathroom. the whole thing will be 10′ wide inside as well! 😉 a little more at the roof 😲 Yup…..

    Ours is obviously not for regular towing trips it may be moved 2 or 3 times that’s it and it will be done with a big full size rig !!!!

    Why build a gooseneck tiny house
    when you can buy a 5 slide used rv 5th wheel that expands with a flick of the switch doubling the space. All the figured out everything g in place from years of upgrade designs from the rv designers.
    I bought a 2012 Alpine with 6 self leveling jacks with all the bells an whistles at as is rv in Spokane Wa. for $36,000.

    The lightest easiest to haul RV I have ever owned.

    My company California Round House builds a urban wild fire interface California Code approved mini home under 300 Sq.Ft.
    We sell the 30 parts floor walls and roof components for $30,000
    you install and finish interior as you like.

    cheers, david

      David Raitt, if it was only a matter of cost and size then sure but RV’s aren’t built for full time living… People can use them that way but they’re designed and built only for recreational usage, which is why they’re called RV’s!

      Here’s some differences…

      1) Tiny Houses bring in custom built at virtually any price range versus a couple hundred thousand up into the millions for a custom built RV…

      2) Tiny Houses are generally constructed like a house, so construction is more robust and long lasting with some designed to last over 60 years before you need to worry about any serious repairs or renovations vs RV’s which are built minimalistically and may need repairs almost right after purchase, especially the more cheaply made models with rubber roofs and other materials that are simply not designed to last long.

      Mind, the RV industry as a whole has issues with building quality consistency and the reason most depreciate rapidly is because most break down rapidly.

      Those few RV’s that don’t depreciate rapidly are the ones that are usually better built and make use of materials like full body fiberglass or metal framed construction like Airstreams, but the majority of the market is full of the rapidly depreciating models.

      Versus Tiny Houses that are built to last… They still depreciate, unless built on a foundation, but much more slowly, add general lower long term costs because less repairs, less maintenance, more energy efficiency, etc.

      3) Custom built homes allows people to choose what materials are used in the construction to help ensure a healthy home, vs most RV construction with chemically treated materials that off-gas.

      4) Tiny house construction allows them to be extremely energy efficient to the point they compare to passive or even net zero houses, versus the usually energy guzzling RV’s.

      Mind, one of the reasons people get Tiny Houses is because they want something that’s more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

      5) Legally, nationally, RV’s are not seen as legal residence that people can live full time. While Tiny Houses have more in common with Manufactured Houses.

      The reasons why say a Park Model RV only goes up to 400 Sq Ft is because by law they have to switch from the RV building code to the HUD building code if they go above 400 Sq Ft, meaning they have to be constructed like Manufactured Houses if they go bigger.

      While Tiny Houses may be built any way, most are building them to meet or exceed most building codes and the legalization efforts for Tiny Houses have already added Tiny Houses on foundations to the ICC IRC 2018 update, which several states have already adopted.

      The Tiny House appendix included in the update also includes an Appendix Q section which provides the legal language to submit any other alternative structure for consideration as a legal residential housing, which include tiny houses on wheels.

      None of that applies to RV’s! The closest you get is some places can recognize an RV as an ADU, like in some counties in California, but most are going with Tiny Houses because they can actually be made to match the existing housing structures and thus better blend in.

      6) In the extremes there are tiny houses built to handle things like category 5 hurricanes, 9.0 earthquakes, etc. combined with high energy efficiency means they can allow people to live comfortably just about anywhere on the planet… Not something you can exactly do with most RV’s…

      Nor are tiny houses limited to being on wheels, as they can be put on foundations… even if they started on wheels… or on skids, or in a tree, or on the side of a mountain… or on a floating platform to turn it into a house boat, etc.

      Plus, custom built means owners have complete freedom to have it done any way they want… Versus most RV’s which you have to choose off whatever model comes off the lot and/or do an after market renovation to get it the way you want.

      So there are reasons why people choose Tiny Houses over RV’s… There are also reasons why people may still prefer a RV, especially if they don’t want a long term commitment or simply primary want to use it for recreational purposes… Or it may be a simple matter of affordability…

      It’s nice to have something that will last but sometimes affordability matters more and you can possibly save up for something better later.

      There’s just always trade offs and real differences to consider…

        From what I read I would like for Mr. James D. to help with advice when I am getting ready to downsize with a Tiny Home. Mr. D has much knowledge and thank you for sharing some of it to this site. I am a CA resident and want to learn how to avoid the high property taxes for homes. Also no one ever posts what the DMV license charges that have to be paid yearly. After my home is sold that will be the main source of my living money, social security income is minable. I want to be able to live the final years of my life avoiding giving all my money to the state and federal government. I have worked hard all my life and paid my fair share of taxes and now want to be able to downsize in comfort, warm in winter and cool in summer, with good internet and TV hookup and reasonable space rent or able to purchase a small piece of land in a nice safe area for my wife and myself. Does this make sense?? I am wondering what state MR. D lives in and how I could get in touch with? Enough said today!

          Hello Ronald Hulse, I’m in Georgia but I can point you to some resources that can help you…





          There are other options, but the legalizing of Tiny Houses in California is still ongoing. Recent events like the California Wildfires has put more emphasis on changing the laws and some exceptions are being pushed through already but it still depends where you plan on living and California primarily allows Tiny Houses as ADU’s, which means they require a primary residence and the Tiny House serves as the secondary.

          For some, this can work out by renting the primary residence out and living in the Tiny House.

          It is possible to have a lot designated for use for parking a RV or Tiny House in the less densely populated areas and use it as the primary residence but this is not allowed everywhere and not all properties can have their land usage designation changed easily…

          Other options like the Delta Bay community are a RV/Mobile park where you can rent a space and have access to the local amenities… This means renting a space instead of owning but they allow full time living in either a RV or Tiny House on wheels and can be much cheaper than other renting options for what you get and most RV/Mobile parks will still provide relatively good access to nearby shopping areas, etc.

          Alternative would be to move where Tiny House laws are more progressive like Spur, Texas or El Paso, Colorado… Places like those allow you to both own your own property and live in a Tiny House as your primary residence and you have options for both Tiny Houses on wheels or on a foundation like a traditional house.

          There are places in California where you may be able to get permission to place a Tiny House on a foundation but it’s difficult to get approval with the laws as they are now but that may change as growing demand pushes for change and the state may eventually adopt the 2018 ICC IRC update that includes the Tiny House appendix for legalizing Tiny Houses within the building codes.

          Mind sustainability if looking for property, places that may allow more flexible options may be harder to actually live in because of a lack of access to utilities or other reasons why there isn’t already a house on the property.

          California regulations also require things like a strong foundations because of all the earthquakes you can get and the impact fees for establishing a new property can exceed the cost of the house itself…

          Additionally, most Tiny House builders can also help with finding a place to put the house once you have it… I recommend looking for the location first to assure a trouble free transition.

          There’s a number of builders in California as well as many builders will deliver to just about any of the continental states…

          A final option to consider is if there are others you know who also want to live in a Tiny House, then another option is to join together and create your own Tiny house community with land you can co-own…

          Just an additional note, there are some who are trying to open Tiny House villages in California.

          The ones to keep an eye on will be the ones that will operate like co-ops as those will allow you to own your own home and the lot of land it is on, while sharing the burden of upkeep and providing common amenities to help keep costs lower…

    This is almost perfect, the only change for me would be to remove part of the longer counter and put an apartment size stove/oven in and leave the rest of the counter. As an older uncoordinated female I absolutely love the bedroom over the gooseneck. I already have a jacked up back, I sure don’t want to have to squat or crawl in and out of a traditional loft. Love the staircase and the cabinet color. Just overall love this, adding more color with decor would be a snap. If I could sell my house for enough and find land that would allow this to placed on it I would buy it in a minute.
