Question: Should I be considering RVIA certified tiny houses?
Answer: Although you can always build a tiny house on wheels without an RVIA certification right now I’m showing you why you should seriously consider saying ‘yes’ to RVIA certified tiny houses.
If you ever want to be able to park and live in your tiny home in an RV park in the future you’ll want to have this certification to make sure you have as many options as possible when it comes to living in your tiny home. Some RV parks and campgrounds will NOT allow your tiny house on wheels on their property if it is not RVIA certified while others will.

Tiny House Q&A: RVIA Certified Tiny Houses
To RVIA or Not to RVIA?
Right now and in the past, tiny homes are being built without RVIA certifications because it costs more money to do so. And if you want, you can go that route. But increasingly more builders are offering RVIA certifications because it gives you more options for financing, parking, and insurance.
Why You Might Want to Have an RVIA Tiny House
I personally highly recommend the certification and hiring a builder that can provide it so that your tiny house is allowed in more places in the future.
And in case you ever want to sell it, this certification might make it easier to sell and more valuable too. Or, let’s say you wanted to move out of it. Say, you outgrow your tiny house, right?
Well, if you have an RVIA certification it can be easier to find an RV park or a campground to park it in and possibly rent it out using Airbnb and the like. So when you’re done with your tiny house, it can still work for you and provide value to others.
