Cozy Rollers: Super Tiny Traveling THOW with Hidden Bathroom


Rhett And Jennifer knew each other in high school and reconnected in college when they started dating. Believe it or not, the Cozy Roller THOW they now live in isn’t Rhett’s first tiny house build! Rhett and his dad built a THOW when he was in high school, but it was too bulky and heavy to travel in.

Learning from his previous “mistakes,” this 120 square foot THOW weighs just about 5,000 lbs and is easy for the couple to tow and use to travel the country. It even features a magical hidden bathroom, which is super neat. Want a tiny house like theirs? They are selling and building replicas of their innovative design for $30,000!

I also loved that they built what they could with the resources they had — right now they’re saving up for a stove/oven and washer/dryer and doing without in the meantime. Pretty wise for young people! You can watch the full tour from Tiny Home Tours below.

Living & Traveling in a Micro THOW: Cozy Rollers

Super tiny, but pretty spacious for 120 square feet.

They have space for a 3-burner stove and washer/dryer unit once they can afford them.

They sleep on the fold-down couch at night.

Can you tell they love their tiny house?

    5k lbs is NOT a light THOW in this size. And if your wheels are 8′ wide, so should be the THOW.

      No, trailers are not all equal and wheels are not what determine width of the structure, it’s the size and design of the load bearing parts of the trailer frame chassis, which won’t always match the width of the wheels and wheel wells… Not all trailer wheel wells can even support any structural load, let alone be expected to handle any major loads. So what design you can do depends what kind of trailer is used and how it was engineered…

      While light weight is relative when talking about something built like a house but for THOWs, especially in the context of traveling, it’s usually referencing what class tow vehicle you’d need to move it and doesn’t necessarily mean the structure is that light for its size… Just that it’s in the easily moveable range…

    I like it and its good ideas inside. Especially the bathroom extension and adding counter space are great.
    It seems to me less wide and the streamlined shape is great for travel.

    I think the size is good for moving around. However there must be a way to make it lighter.
    5000 Lbs is a bit much for small. The size of kitchen goes well with rest of home.
    It could be a good thing for retired persons or single young person .But cozy couple in a
    Tiny is good too.

      Well, unless it’s some advance construction like SIPs, lightweight composites, etc. that will usually come at a much higher cost then usually anything built like a house is going to be pretty heavy… Even just the bare trailer chassis can weigh close to, or even over in some cases, 1000 lbs at this size before adding anything to it…

      For comparison, Jay Shafer’s Gifford Tiny House is technically smaller at 112 Sq Ft, versus this at 120 Sq Ft, but still weighed 9,300 pounds with furniture and fittings… Keep in mind that unlike RV’s, houses are not lightly built!

      Typically, if you really want to be mobile then stick to an RV or build it like an RV and not like a tiny house and only give it the appearance of a house… RV’s prioritize mobility for recreational usage and can be a lot more easily mobile than a Tiny House. While a tiny house prioritizes durability and things like insulation for energy efficiency, ability to work in any climate/weather, etc.

      There are just always trade offs and consequences for whatever is prioritized, and that includes mobility…

    With a few clever carpentry tricks one could build this same house a bit lighter. I’m impressed with what they’ve done, and I love their can-do attitude and their enthusiasm.

    Love this Tiny Home, first floor bedroom, and how clever to utilize the bathroom space!
