The major differences have to do with the craftsmanship, the quality of the materials and the livability. We expect our tiny homes to last thirty years while an RV usually has to be removed from a trailer park after ten years because it’s falling apart.
RVs are often built within seven hours while a tiny home can take four to six weeks to build. And a tiny home uses the fixtures and materials that any normal home would use. For example, the showers and sinks are full size and the materials to modify and refurbish or maintain a tiny home are available at Home Depot, just like any other house.
