What is the difference between an RV and a tiny house?
As someone who lived in an RV for years and now live in a tiny house, I can tell you there is absolutely no comparison and a tiny house wins! A tiny house is constructed like a traditional site-built, foundation home with 2”x4” studs, insulation, windows, doors, appliances and quality wall finishes. RV manufacturers use cheap, lightweight materials with minimal structure. A tiny house can be built to match a favorite floor plan of an RV but will feel like a traditional home. Due the poor R factor, heating and cooling an RV is a challenge and expensive. A tiny house can handle full-sized appliances and full bathtubs. The difference is truly amazing.
