This popped up in my Youtube video suggestions.


YouTube video, click here.

But after searching the web for Timbercraft Tiny Homes, I stumbled into this one ... OMG!

Check this puppy out!

These are goosenecks.

I can't find any info on their weight, if they have holding tanks (fresh, black, or grey) either, or power demands (50 amp or more???)

Just thought I share and scratch my head experiencing a "WOW!" moment!

Yeah, I don't think those are designed to travel down the road, except to get where they'll be installed. I can't see 23 wood framed windows standing up to lot of road work.

Their company website says that the goose neck can weigh 20K pounds. No problem for an F-150[emoticon]

For travelling, get an RV. For a low cost home, get a manufactured double wide placed on your land with permits. To get on tv or live like fools go ahead with that tiny home fad.

It doesn't look like it can stand a lot of pounding in traveling.

And that would be like a brick streamline or wind-resistance wise when being pulled.

But love the looks.

I was camping near SanFrancisco and they had to move me to a different spot as there was a 'tiny home' in my spot and could not get it moved in time. Needed to have a commercial bobtail to pull it out and it was oversize so the state permit to roll took a few extra days. Total PITN, no thanks.
