This is a lightweight travel trailer that you can tow with your car called the Roulottes ProLite. The company offers several models, many of them are under 2000 lbs, and even some under 1000 lbs, including the on I’m showing you here (the 12V), which weighs approximately 950 lbs.

If you’re looking to travel, adventure, and move about quite frequently with your tiny house on wheels, something like this might be a good option to consider. It’s slightly bigger than a teardrop camper, and much smaller than most tiny homes on wheels, which makes it ideal for frequent travel. What do you think of this travel trailer design? It’s approximately 13-ft. in length and weighs just under 1000 lbs. Learn more below.

The town council of Amherstburg recently voted to allow tiny homes on foundations with a minimum 323-square-feet (30-square-meters) minimum and within 20 meters distance from the primary dwelling, according to the Windsor Star.

Tiny homes take many different shapes and forms, even when it comes to zoning and real estate. One way to get legal tiny houses back on the map is through RV parks, right? That’s one way. Another way to do it is through ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), also known as guest houses, secondary dwellings, accessory structures, and the like.
