3. Insuring a self-built Tiny House RV can be tricky
Most RV insurance companies look for manufactured Tiny House RVs with a RVIA certification. You cannot get an RVIA certification if you are not a manufacturer that has passed extensive testing. That’s why there are so few tiny house companies that are RVIA certified (Tumbleweed is RVIA certified). Insuring your self-built Tiny House RV is not impossible, but it can be more difficult. We suggest reaching out to local insurance companies prior to building and taking hundreds of photos during construction.
4. Tiny House RVs aren’t for everyone
We encourage people to rent a Tiny House RV for the weekend before purchasing or building one. It’s important to know that the lifestyle is right for you. If you find out that “going tiny” is not for you, that’s okay! At least you learned more about the movement and yourself.
5. Tiny House RVs are NOT a fad
While some people claim that the Tiny House movement is just a fad, the popularity is actually growing steadily. More Tiny House RVs are built every year, and it’s relatively common to see them at RV parks. Every year communities and events such as the Tiny House Jamboree and the Tiny House Conference grow with attendees. More and more TV shows and news outlets are covering the movement. Tumbleweed has grown astronomically as a company and in production in the past five years. Tiny House RVs are not going away any time soon!
