I own a Prius and a tt, and certainly not younger generation. I just want to buy less gas.

Currently at the campsite in Co Springs we are staying at (of which there are scant few, I might add!! And not many of any quality). Appears homemade. Door is on other side.........I saw occupants come out. No way to get better picture without being obnoxious.

Maybe a burnt out 5er? Using insurance payoff to "rebuild".

It is owned by a retired flat roofer I know. He always hated when the tar would run away from his mop. Lol...

I walked past that tiny house/trailer and no tow vehicle there. I am not sure that unit leaves the campground. It might get stored here when not in use. It appears very tall. From the ground it looks to be about 14' high.

Think you mean Prius....lol But you could mean 'pious' as in prejudiced owners....

Not into a 'Tiny' house either. Most zoned locales prohibit them because they aren't built at least to BOCA standards.

I think it's the commercialization via TV that makes them popular. You can certainly purchase a very well appointed TT or 5er for the same or less cost.

Certainly not for everyone and they usually aren't meant to move as often as a travel trailer. When living full time in a tiny house, the real wood, insulated walls, house windows, etc are much more quiet and sturdy than a travel trailer.

Yeah, my Prius has been more reliable and better built than my Forest River trailer. Came with better tires, too.

My eldest son lives close to Cherry Hill CG and we checked it out after being in DC when my granddaughter was born the end of February. We rode through the cg to check it out, thinking we'd bring the Sunseeker and toad down some this summer. Seems to me that tiny house was in the cg when we made our recon on Feb 28th.
