Tiny home or RV…which one?
November 14, 2017
If you are considering whether to buy a tiny home or RV, look no further. We have compiled a few factors to consider in your purchase that may help with your decision. After all, we want to make sure you get the best bang for your buck and are happy with your decision.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are you are looking for a quality product that will maintain it’s value?
While both tiny homes and RVs can maintain some of their value, an RVs value is directly related to how well the engine and vehicle part of the RV is functioning. Since a tiny home such as Wheelhaus’ selection rests on a trailer, you would not lose the value of the vehicle. Both RVs and Wheelhaus tiny homes undergo rigorous quality control checks, however, with so many moving parts, an RV has the potential to require more maintenance.
- Are you are looking for flexible adventure?
Our Roadhaus Wedge RV is completely ready to travel with you on your next big road trip. Roadworthy and small enough to fit in RV spaces in various campgrounds, the Roadhaus Wedge RV provides you all the comforts of home in a compact, yet luxurious package. And unlike an RV, a tiny home trailer can be detached so that you can easily go on day adventures.
- Are you looking to stand out from the crowd?
Let’s face it, RVs typically look the same…white, big and unoriginal. They are functional and provide you with everything you need, yes, but it’s tough to stand out in the crowd. Tiny homes allow you to be more original in your design and look, Wheelhaus tiny homes being a perfect example. A-frame designs, quality wood siding, and large, open windows are just some of the flair that makes Wheelhaus tiny homes unique.
- Are you willing to get a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to drive your tiny home or RV?
In most states, you do not need a CDL to drive a trailer depending on the size. RVs that weigh more than 26,000 lbs do require a special CDL license to operate because of their physical size and weight. Wheelhaus’ Roadhaus Wedge RV and other models are well below this threshold and would not require a CDL to operate.
- Are you planning to keep the tiny home or RV at your house or in a storage unit?
With an RV, the likelihood that you have to keep the vehicle in a storage unit greatly increases if you live in a place with a strict HOA. Many HOA convenances do not allow for large RVs to be stored on your land unless you have a particularly relaxed HOA. Wheelhaus tiny homes can double as guests bedrooms or offices in your background.
Whether you are looking to purchase a tiny home or RV, it’s also important to consider your price point as well as other bells and whistles you want on your adventure. Luckily, Wheelhaus has a great selection of tiny homes at various price points. Choosing the right moving home for your adventure can be challenging, but Wheelhaus is here to help.
