Tiny House vs RV
While both a tiny house and RV allow for many of the same advantages like affordability and less upkeep there are specific differences that may lead one to choose either as an option. These are important in choosing the correct option because many people cannot afford a traditional house in their geographic area.
Benefits of both Tiny House and RV:
- Telework: The new era of geographic independant employment allow for non traditional ideas for a person’s primary residence. If you can work remotely you are able to work from where you move your Tiny House or RV to.
Differences between Tiny Houses and RVs:
Differences between Tiny Houses and RV Regulations:
- RVs are regulated throughout the country and the regulations are fairly well known. This is a traditionally recognized type of thing to insure and the companies are familiar with them.
- Tiny Houses may not be recognized under the same regulation as RVs because in various jurisdictions the term “mobility” is questioned in reference to the TIny Houses.
Differences between Tiny Houses and RV Mobility:
- RVs are designed to be mobile and easily travel throughout a well known circuit of parks that allow for parking. The units are made to travel on the highways and this is the more mobile option between the two.
- Tiny Houses are less mobile and they are restricted in where you can transfer them to. Many RV parks will never allow a tiny house to be moved to them.
Differences between Tiny Houses and RV Maintenance:
- RVs are worked on at authorized RV dealerships and repair shops. These are more vehicle related maintenance professionals.
- Tiny Houses are constructed by Tiny House builders who are spread out throughout the country. In addition the individual components can be worked on by any traditional home repair professional for such things as HVAC, Electric and Plumbing.
