28-foot Lightweight Gooseneck Tiny House: The Tucson by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses (FOR SALE)


This is the Tucson 28-foot lightweight gooseneck tiny house on wheels by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses. It features a solar system, an elevator bed that stores into the ceiling or drops over the couch for sleep time, a full kitchen, lots of book storage, indoor storage for three bicycles, and more.

The tiny house was custom-built for a client that hired Greg Parham and the team at RMTH. The goal was to design/build a self-contained tiny home that would be light enough to tow with a 1/2 ton Dodge Ram 1500 Ecodiesel since that’s what he happened to own and he would be using that to travel back and forth from upstate New York to Arizona.

At first, he was looking into a 26′ long bumper pull, but I encouraged him to look into a gooseneck since he intended to travel back and forth from New York to Arizona as a snowbird, and with this much towing with this small of a tow vehicle, the gooseneck platform was going to be easier and safer for transport. He didn’t know you could get gooseneck hitches for half ton trucks, but you can, and after learning this he was all about the goose!

Why, yes! You are seeing bubble gum pink next to forest green! The owner requested these colors and we obliged! Perhaps the pink is to blend in to the Tuscon desert, and green reminiscent of Vermont deciduous forests. We’re not sure, but nonetheless, it is eye catching!

With this tiny house, Greg put a lot of thought into the design when it comes to towing and wind drag since he has a lot of experience designing, building, and delivering (towing) tiny homes over the years. Read more about that here.

The rear of the house features a shared living room/bedroom arrangement thanks to the use of a motorized elevator bed. A couch and shelving are permanently built into the walls, and at the push of a bottom the queen bed drops down over the couch for sleepy time. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get good photos in this part of the house , but there is a floor plan shown below for clarity.

A gentleman from the Vermont/upstate New York area commissioned us to create this extremely unique build. He presented us the challenge of designing a self contained tiny house big enough to meet his living needs, yet light enough to be pulled by a 1/2 ton Dodge Ram 1500 Ecodiesel, because this is the truck he happened to own!

To learn more about all the details of this tiny house, please be sure to read the original post in its entirety here. There is so much you can learn by reading posts from Greg Parham from his experience over the years.

This Tiny House Is For Sale…

We just finished this build back in January 2019, but the owner’s life plans have taken him in a completely different direction than he was anticipating, and now he is needing to sell this barely used beauty. You can read more about our description here, and Paul, the owner, has provided the additional remarks:

” $75,000 Beautiful, new (five months old) tiny house professionally built by Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses- Details below, but selling because my situation has changed and I moved back to NY. Can deliver anywhere in the DC-Boston corridor or Northeast/New England area. Delivery to other parts of the lower 48 is possible for a fee. Price is definitely negotiable. The cost of the house was $100k all told, so I’m already down a good deal to get things going. Again, price is flexible. Want to sell soon.

    If you like to travel a lot this is the way to go.
    I agree when it come to roof shape but believe a flat bed truck would allow to streamline overall height and this helps to save on weight and height, too. Floor plan isn’t my thing but fits the requirement of the customer. My choice would be a more open one. Stove should be more centered and an elevator bed is a great space saving feature. The storage area above gooseneck is a unique feature and for sure great for weight distribution.
    I personally would like to add awnings to create shaded outdoor living space, add a ramp at stern which doubles as balcony which would allow to haul a motorbike, trike or quad as common with toy hauler, keep the main sleeping area at gooseneck, followed by walk through bathroom. Then kitchen, dining and living space with elevator bed above.
    As Greg stated he could go down to 18’+7′, this would led to further weight and cost reduction as skipping the paint job.
    Overall a great job and packed with innovative ideas.

    This does have a lot of appeal to me . I would prefer a sleeping area over the hitch rather than a bed that has to raise and lower. Is there any special reason for the electrical to be in conduit other than it looks cool and the outer wall insulation is not comprimised? There is also surface run wiring enclosures for adding wiring or wiring older houses that could be used too.

      Practicality, cost, and time savings because they used MIPs… If you’re not familiar, basically metal version of SIPs…

    The granite looking countertop, around the kitchen sink, clashes with the otherwise nice interior.
