RV vs. Tiny Homes

RV’s Vs Tiny Homes

When people want to downsize or live frugally, they invest either in a motorhome or a tiny house. These options offer comfort, safety, and shelter from the weather without needing expensive maintenance or repairs. I run Robby The Camper Man and sell high-quality RVs and motorhomes to a wide range of clients. Many people have asked me whether it is better to invest in a vehicle or a tiny home. Both options have some pros and cons, but I often recommend RVs.

What Are RVs?

RVs are vehicles with living quarters built inside of them. They have everything from bathrooms and kitchens to game rooms, so it is possible to live a comfortable life in one. You can find new or used RVs in relatively good condition at an affordable rate.

What Are Tiny Homes?

Tiny homes are small houses that can be 80 sq. ft to a 1000 sq. ft in size. Many states only consider places of less than 400 sq. ft as tiny homes. Some of these structures are built on wheels and are suitable for travel but not all.

RVs vs. Tiny Homes

Both RVs and tiny homes are good options if you want to downsize. However, RVs have some advantages that make it a more appealing choice for many of my customers. Here’s a look at some of these advantages:

  • Cost – Tiny homes are expensive, especially when you consider the amount of space they offer. A good home can cost upwards of $30,000, and a comfortable one can be as expensive as $60,000. In comparison, you can get affordable RVs for sale with all bells and whistles at around $15,000. You can splurge on a new, unused RV and get a spacious vehicle for less than $40,000.

  • Travel – It is possible to get a tiny home on wheels and travel to different locations, but it isn't entirely practical. These structures are not designed for that purpose, so you will end up spending a lot of money on repairs. RVs are vehicles and are built to handle long drives. You can spend an entire year on the road in these homes without facing too much trouble.

  • Regulations – RVs are more strictly regulated than tiny homes. This may sound like a disadvantage, but it is a blessing. These vehicles live up to a certain standard and are reliable. That’s why many campgrounds and tailor parks around the country allow RVs but not tiny homes on wheels. Purchasing an RV is a better choice than a tiny home.

  • Space – Many RVs are spacious, especially if you choose a slide-out recreational vehicle. They have higher storage capacity and can accommodate more people, making them more suitable for couples and families than tiny homes.

RVs do have some disadvantages, but you can overcome them with a few tweaks. I take the time to explain the pros and cons of these vehicles in detail to clients so they can make a decision that suits their lifestyle.
