Tiny House with Slide Outs

If you’ve been looking for a tiny house with slide outs this is it. It’s a custom build by Tiny Idahomes on a 34′ gooseneck trailer. And it features slide outs just like many RVs and travel trailers that you see on the road.

So once this tiny house is parked, you can expand the space using the slide outs. Hopefully in the future, we’ll get to see more THOWs (Tiny Homes on Wheels) being built like this. And maybe someone will even show us how to do it ourselves. For now, Tiny Idahomes is obviously a Tiny House Builder that can make it happen. Please enjoy this amazing 34′ tiny house on wheels with slide outs below and re-share it with your friends below. Thanks!

    Pretty near perfect. I’d add my own touches, of course, but this is marvelous. Any idea how much it costs?

    • April 28, 2015, 6:58 pm

      I have not figured a final price yet as I still have to add a breakfast bar and finish some other items but it should be around $80,000

    I’d like to know how much this thing WEIGHS!!

    • April 28, 2015, 7:00 pm

      As it sits it weighs 13,200 lbs and I pulled it to Portland and back and it pulls better than any other Tiny I have built.

    Just makes me think travel trailer. How is this different from any other 5th wheel.

      That was exactly what I was thinking, camping trailer with wood cladding. I am just not seeing, I am looking but I don’t see tiny house, I see weekends at Yogi Bear Park.

        If it were permantly placed into a hill it would look less bearish and could be quite attractive on the right piece of land with dome trees. Maybe you just need to use a little imagination as your vision seems cloudy?

        I have pinned hundreds of tiny homes during the past three years that my wife and I have been living in a 224 sq.ft. motorhome. We have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of fifth wheels. I have yet to see a tiny house that has the FUNCTIONALITY and LIVABILITY of a well designed fifth wheel. Not talking aesthetics or construction quality here. For decades fifth wheel manufacturers have built easily moveable, relatively lightweight, on/off grid living habitats that always include a living area, dining area, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom. And you can utilize all of these functions without climbing ladders or turning yourself into a pretzel re-arranging things. Only problem: they’re U.G.L.Y. The world could use a beautiful fifth wheel.

    Love the tip out idea but do not like the interior design. It looks cold and not cozy to me at all! Looks like a man cave, but lots may like it!

  • Bruce

    NICE! Looks like a tweener between a RV and a TH… very upscale look, I fear the asking price!

  • Karen R

    As a former fulltime RVer, Jean, I will say that the difference is this is built more like a house, with wood rather than metal, more insulation (it appears the slides would not allow in cold as RV slides do), and would last many years longer.

    I find this very attractive, although I would like to see lighter colors. It is dark inside. The bathroom sink needs storage below. However, I am sure these can be customized.

    I have seen countless tiny homes! Many phenomenal ones! These 2 tiny houses of yours are the most incredible tiny houses I have ever seen!! Incredible, homey, charming appearance, layout/design is perfect interior – exterior – absolutely perfect! Beautiful work! I am going to be hiring you to build my tiny house just like this when I can! Thank you. 🙂 Connie

    I love the concept of slide outs for tiny homes to get more width. However, I think this design does not have the inviting and charm factor that other tiny homes have. Maybe it’s because the windows are small and the ceiling is black? I think there is great potential for this concept to be awesome and I’m excited for these new ideas!

  • JMF
    April 28, 2015, 11:53 am

    I thought the exterior and the interior construction parts were really nice, but the interior hard surfaces looked amateurish in the extreme to me. The “pedestal” sink in the bathroom looked like something you’d make in high school shop class as a first project. Sorry — loved the design. Loved the layout. Hated the chintzy looking interior hardscapes.

    The cabinetry looks to be made from repurposed wood which is a Good Thing however it does make the photos look rather dark. Perhaps, in the actual house, the white walls offset the dark enough to lighten things up? If not, I suppose paint would be an option though that does make the repurposing rather moot as oil would be used rather than new wood. No really good solutions if lessening the carbon footprint is the goal. Using lighter tones in other materials [the covering on the couches, f’rinstance] could help solve the problem w/o increasing the footprint – – – –

    An awesome concept in any case. Keep up the good work!

    Utterly without charm. That bathroom…ugh!!! This is where many tiny houses fail. A bathroom should be more than the “necessary evil”. It’s where you go to refresh yourself and prepare yourself for a new day.

    In my opinion, a bathroom in a tiny house should consist of: a toilet in its own enclosed area WITH A GOOD FAN, with a decent-sized sink with storage underneath. Then a separate bathing/shower area. That shouldn’t be too hard to accomplish with a clever layout and wise use of space.

  • April 28, 2015, 2:02 pm

    Thx for the Great Ideas- but I would guess that the major consideration for TH living would be (drum roll, please) – the actual cost (in dollars USD).
    And there never seems to be any listed. Is it because the actual cost is quite prohibitive? Fear of scaring off potential buyers? I’ll keep my eye out for changes in your emails – if there’s not a change, i will go elsewhere and others will follow suit. Judging by Lemon Cove’s vacancy rate, the TH community is not a big money maker for anyone.
    There’s a reason for that.

    • Comet

      The builder answered above that it would cost “arobnd” $80,000. Which for me—well; no not trading or spending just a tad less than I can get for my on a basement house! Add in something that could PULL this and that brings the total well OVER $120,000.

      And it is awfully dark in there—looked like a bachelor apartmernt with the giant TV and dark matcy uncomfortable looking couches.

      The kitchen and bath look like after thoughts–I hate vessel sinks and this one does look—small and hobbit sized. You waste most of the surface area of the counter top=where do you set down your toothpaste while brushing? And you then have to come up with baskets or skirting to enclose the “stuff” you will need to keep under there–so–not for me.

    They need to call a decorator and have him/her explain to them why you do not mix all those different materials together. They have Star Trek couches and ceiling next to rustic pallet wood kitchen cabinets with too many patterns, textures and colors on the walls, floors and ceiling and the Hawaii inspired bathroom with a plastic surround …. it is all just too much. It is positively overwhelming! It screams Man cave!

  • Joe

    To bad the video isn’t on the featured trailer. the cabinets are wrong against all that depressing white.Had they put the hall cabinets on the opposite wall there could have been a window along there to brighten the unit. Stained or etched glass would have added a point of interest. The bathroom needs help! They should refer to some of the units that have been on this site.Might be a good guest house not some where I would live.

    What is the roof material, not rubber I hope, and roof materials on the slides?

  • April 28, 2015, 7:10 pm

    Thank you everyone for your feedback, but I would like to clear up that I build custom Tiny houses as per the customer specs and designs. I understand not everyone will love every house but the final product needs to only please the person that hired me to build it. The best part of building custom units and working with my customers are that every unit I build is different and unique and the customer gets what they want. this unit still needs finished and also has features that are not shown in the pictures. I am also proud to announce that Tiny Idahomes is 1 of 3 that is RVIA travel trailer certified.

      What a beautiful job! I love the tile in the bathroom and the attention to detail throughout. Slide outs are a nice touch. I think that is a bargain for 80K. I wish I had the $ to get you guys to build me one!

  • Steve
    April 28, 2015, 9:02 pm

    This unit had me flummoxed until I read the last comment from the builder. “per the customer specs and designs” then it all made sense. This company has filled a great niche, providing folks with alternatives to conventional rv’s, with options normally not seen elsewhere but Tiny Homes on Wheels. And… you get a RVIA sticker on the side, which in case you didn’t know allows you into a lot of rv parks you would otherwise be discouraged from staying with a Tiny Home on Wheels, due to insurance issues, standards etc. The interior left me cold but hey if the folks want to drop $80K you build what they ask for. One thing I keyed on was Tiny Idahomes had resolved the water tight issue on the roof as it meets the walls that other Tiny Homes on Wheels struggle with, kudos for that accomplishment. Another bright spot is with an RVIA sticker you can get insurance for your rig, and at 80 BIG ONES I would want that. Look forward to seeing what else they build.

  • Celeste

    Like the builder commented, this is built to customer specs. Having said that, my mother in law would love it! I would hate it. Different stokes for different folks. I’m liking the slide outs, I’ve got my “I can build anything” brother working on how to make them work in -40 Saskatchewan weather, it’s keeping his brain busy!!
    Per the price tag: u get what u pay for, & conveniance is expensive in today’s want it now world.

    Everyone should realize that these builders put their heart and soul into their projects. Then they expose their work on a forum like this. Put yourself in their shoes for a minute and think how you’d feel hearing all this criticism. Instead of ripping apart their creation perhaps try to phrase your observations as suggestions starting with a positive. Example: “ingenious vanity stand and interesting tile work. Will there be storage?” It may be there but not seen in the picture or they may not be finished with it yet. Have all of you who so righteously toss negatives built something on par or better? Then get yours up here so that we can tear it apart. I come here to admire the ingenuity, creativity, and gumption of others who are out there trying to make a difference and offer options. Instead this reminds me of younger days when I would hear the parishioners as they left the church criticizing the sermon and gossiping about others.

  • Adrian

    It really bothers me how some of you just rip apart these projects. Post the pictures of the tiny home you built, oh that’s right, you haven’t built one… but you are an expert!!! Got it.

    For all of those new to Tiny Idahomes, they are leading the charge to build tiny tiny homes for Boise’s homeless population. If you could all stop taking yourselves so seriously, you might learn something or change the world by not being such d*cks.

    Love that tile in the bathroom btw.

  • Michael

    I like it. A goose-neck saves on overall length, its easier to tow
    and this one looks more my style.
    I don’t want to repeat what already has been said but their website
    shows other surfaces and brighter colors.
    The curved roof is a great way to reduce height optically.
    I would like to see a more aerodynamic front and would place the bedroom there. This way I could put the living area at the end and
    a fold out porch fully glassed to it.
    A bit more storage for all the goodies like bicycles, folding chairs and more you are carrying would be fine, too.
    Great concept especially when you are going to move more often.

  • Susanne

  • Jonnie
    May 16, 2015, 4:34 pm

    Needs more Windows, or Sun roofs, for more natural light. That would lighten the look, make it seem bigger, and cheerier. Love the slide outs, they make it roomier. If placed in a permanent situation, I’d be tempted to leave the slide outs permanently out.

  • rick

    Sorry, I think the slide outs are good but overall it looks like a horse trailer.Otherwise I think it is great!

    I’ve followed Alex’s site for a long time and have admired a few of Idaho mes’ previous builds. They all seem to be well built to me. Very substantial tiny homes that you would feel confident sleeping in. I too would like to hear positive comments and suggestions sometimes.

  • Trish

    I have wondered about a slide-out for a THOW. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

  • Larry
    May 30, 2015, 11:31 pm

    For those interested, a slide-out starts with some good industrial slides. Like a drawer but with a lid these boxes slide in and out on a good guide rail with ball bearings. Take a look at this company’s offerings. http://www.rollon.com/US/en/applications/7-special-vehicles/19-linear-solutions-for-applications-on-specialty-vehicles/
    The truck on the far right has a slide-out and the blow up detail shows where one can place the slides.
    Of course one must consider the weight and forces inside the box and divide it into a number of equally spaced locations around the force. Weight being like a masonry fireplace and force being like an 85lb child jumping up and down on the furniture inside. With a force you need to have a good deck to distribute the load over to adjacent slides and with static weight you place more slides closer together under your masonry fireplace.
    Note that I have no affiliation with any of the industries mentioned.
    The second aspect of a slide out is weather proofing when it is stationary and extended and more so when retracted and moving down the road. The latter being like hurricane driven rain horizontally along the face of the structure and joints. Needs good deflection channels and correctly oriented flashing. Rainscreen technology on a tiny house scale. 🙂

    Thanks for the info, Larry! I wasn’t even aware that you could do this for a tiny house. I’m not sure of the purpose here–it pushes the sides of the living room out, but what exactly gained by this in terms of usable place? Sorry, I’m being a little bit slow on the uptake here.

  • Shari K

    Hi, Thanks ‘M’ above for your comment. Gosh people be respectful of the designers ideas. What is the purpose of harsh critique that basically is judgement.

  • Ghost
    July 1, 2015, 4:52 pm

    Have to agree with Adrian on the negative comments, kind of disheartening… (I’m a regular reader). Oh interwebz why always so smartypants? In fact I have built things that I don’t post because I don’t really care to have the jackal pack have a go at them… I would have done this or that… blah blah blah, all from people who build nothing. I can’t be alone in this, I suspect there are many others who have built cool little homes on the DL never to be seen on the interwebz, because reasons.

  • Karyn

    Cool tiny house! I really like the bedroom design since it’s a separate room and not in a loft.

  • Sandy
    July 4, 2015, 12:44 pm

    I think this one is really nice. With the slide outs is there a greater risk for leaking roofs.

  • Tish
    January 4, 2016, 8:54 pm

    The overall design – especially as it relates to the slideouts – make this the most appealing Tiny I’ve seen in a year of research. It’s easy enough to imagine my preferred colors and textures in the space. Only pause comes at the price tag, because as an earlier poster pointed out, once you’ve moved this sweet thing, you could have bought two less-fab THOWs.

  • Matt Bucar

    I’ll assume until told differently that since this is a certified travel trailer then you can get financing for it just as any other RV. That would help a great deal of people get into a tiny home. I also have seen some beautiful fifth wheels and travel trailers with good furniture and appliances for less money but the exteriors lack curb appeal. I think as this TH market grows you will see great change in the travel trailer market. Also the weight of these tiny homes requires monster trucks to pull them that also must be capable of holding your family. The cost of a truck that will pull 13k or more can be the same cost of many tiny homes. Personally I think many people buying these would be better placing them on a piece of land they own and not plan to pull it around the country. Most people seem to be putting these on wheels to bypass building codes and taxes but not to pull around the country. I have 14 acres that I would love to have one of these on and I would have it on wheels for just that reason. Since containers are moveable I wonder if they are also exempt from building codes and taxes. They also make wonderful tiny homes. Maybe the blogger could address this issue also. Great site. Enjoy seeing all the ideas.

    Hi maker! So… I was wondering if people can ship a tiny house to Canada? I love this concept, everything is Beautiful! Have you made this idea with solar power and energy efficiency stuff?

  • Fanya Houston
    May 17, 2016, 6:21 pm

    I love the slide outs, but at have been wondering (not being well versed in construction myself), if a “slide UP” is possible? I like some of the shorter homes (especially if I am hauling it alone!), and I love the loft bedrooms, but not the fact that it is a space you have to always crawl in. I would LOVE to get somewhere and park, then heighten that space!

  • Matthew Bucar
    May 19, 2016, 1:12 am

    Container homes can be exempt from taxes depending on how they are constructed. Just as double and triple wide mobile homes are exempt because they have wheels under them (but can’t be moved in one piece) so would a multiple container home be exempt as long as it’s built so that it can be taken apart again as the doublewides. Frankly I find the container homes far nicer when they are stacked and when one uses the larger ones. Recently this blog had one from Australia which had a huge attached deck and was just gorgeous. That unit and also a tiny home back in issue 192 or so which was gorgeous inside and had stairs to the loft to die for are my favorites so far and yes they happen to be the most expensive ones featured. Remember even though you might get up to 100K with these homes your still avoid the home taxes which really add up so the extra money you save lets you spend more to make a tiny home beautiful as opposed to an average box.

  • Kris

    Give him a break, he built it as the customer asked. I find 5th wheel RV’s to be ugly, but the room is great. I definitely think I’d want this to look very different for me, but the price is higher than the normal tiny house builder wants to spend.
    I do like the no-loft bedroom. Many older woman are looking into tiny homes, I see so many that need the input of a female.
