Elodie and Thomas used to live in New Mexico before returning to France to begin their tiny living journey. The “Road Runner” (inspired by the arch nemesis of Wile E. Coyote) is their custom Baluchon-built THOW.
The couple wanted lots of windows to let in natural light, and a comb-style bed/couch for guests. There’s a lovely loft bedroom that sits over their kitchen and bathroom. You’ll notice their kitchen has no fridge, and that’s on purpose! Instead they have a special drawer for veggie storage.

Roadrunner? This is about the last thing I’d want to tow down the road at 4mpg or so. Not sure why people think such tall, sq units will be moved much at all?
Because they can be and often are in France… They’re really not much harder to tow than a typical Caravan, which can also be tall and square btw and you don’t see that stopping them from being towed all over the place…
Most other countries impost stricter max weight limits. So they’re typically never going to be as heavy as THOWs in the States and Canada and countries like France the people are used to being more minimal. So they’re typically not going to be putting as much stuff into them.
Typical caravan/mobile home in Europe usually doesn’t have as many appliances, like a microwave, etc. for example. So they’re more easily bottom heavy and that helps make them more stable to tow.
While France doesn’t yet make it easy for people to live in THOWs. So being nomadic is often the solution to deal with the restrictions there and there’s also a market of people who just want to use them as fancier Caravans for a more cabin/cottage feel while they go to their getaways, etc. and that means they will be moved, sometimes often…
First impression was Meh! Cookie cutter. But inside wow!!! Everything in its place but doesn’t appear crowded. I think I’d buy it… at the right price.
I love just about everything Baluchon does.
It’s light and airy and I love the little touches like the old fashioned looking radio and the built-in shelves in the bathroom. The only problem I would have is no refrigerator. I love icecream 😂
I enjoy the Baluchon esthetic. They strike a great balance between clean-and-open, and warm-and-cozy.
