Tiny Towable vs. Rv Blog

Tiny Towable Home vs. RV (Of course tiny homes win!)

You might assume it’s a BIG adjustment moving into a TINY home. However, Simple Life residents often tell people that they spend more time living, laughing, playing, hiking, swimming, golfing, walking and doing just about anything enjoyable now that they’re living in a small space. That’s because they spend less time cleaning, dusting, vacuuming, and maintaining a larger home. It’s simple.

When it comes to living tiny AND being mobile people have choices – TINY HOME vs. RV. However, more and more people are opting for a tiny home over an RV for a variety of reasons. The most prominent reason that Simple Life residents have shared for choosing a tiny towable home over an RV is: Tiny homes provide a true sense of “home.” With subtle touches and unique details, and highly customized and stylized interior finishes, tiny homes are a true expression of their owners. In The Meadows, Simple Life’s community specifically built for tiny houses on wheels, many tiny homes are complete with outdoor packages, storage solutions, pet enclosures and other customized elements that make tiny home living ideal.

Other key reasons people are opting to live in a tiny towable instead of an RV include:

  1. Durability – Most tiny homes are built to nationally recognized building codes using the same quality materials you would find in a high-end home. This means they will resist weather and wear and tear like a traditional home would. We all know that cars depreciate as soon as you drive them off the car lot. Since RVs are considered a vehicle by definition, that depreciation holds true for RVs as well. Tiny houses tend to maintain or even increase in value over time, just as traditional homes do. 
  2. Increased insulation – Tiny homes are insulated for year-round living providing cozy winters and comfortable summers. High-end insulation makes it easier for tiny homeowners to control the temperature and the electric bill.
  3. Customization – Perhaps most importantly, tiny houses on wheels provide the ability to customize personal space. With craftsman quality construction and high-end finishes, these small homes can be personalized for the consumer who knows exactly what he or she wants. Tiny homes can be built with modern finishes and stainless-steel appliances, or with the look and feel of a log cabin with exposed beams and rustic interiors. The vibrant variety of tiny homes in The Meadows today is matched only by the unique personalities and needs of the residents who own them.
