      I agree with Glanda. I would not be able to get up in that loft! But I love this little house! They did a great job on it!!!

    Impressive. Downside is towing speed of max 45 mph. Otherwise great job for the price.

    I admire the thought the kids put into this house; but sleeping 4-5 people is for a vacation RV, not a home to live in. No way more than one person should live in something that small. Anything more is just cruel.

    My only concern would be the trailer frame and would the frame last for a long time? The build is super! You did a great job and at this price I may be interest in buying one of these in the future!
