An actual ‘tiny house on wheels’ … not a traditional park model


I love it. Talk about living small.

This is a Weebee under construction, a tiny house design by Tumbleweed Tiny House Company. You can buy Jay Shafer’s plans and books as well as register to take his tiny house design and construction workshops on his website.

According to a posting on This timber frame tiny house “design was inspired by Jay Shafer’s Tumbleweed Houses.”

* Size – 30-feet long, 8.5-feet wide, and 13.5-feet tall. In other words it’s just about as big as you can build and still tow it down the road without a permit in most states..

* Full Bath – The bathroom contains a composting toilet, shower, and sink. There is even room for a small combination washer/dryer.

* Reclaimed Trailer – The trailer was once a travel trailer found used on craigslist.

The entire construction process has been captured in photography and descriptive captions.

  • Gerry: Finding recent research on “younger” RVers is a challenge. RVIA (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) commissions an extensive research paper every couple of years. (Check out While ‘boomers’ and ‘mature’ folks are said to make up 80-percent of RV owners … I know I run into a large number of 30-something RVers at state and national parks. Quite frequently they are in smaller rigs including folding tent (and hard-sided) trailers.

    Have there been any articles or research done on younger people getting into RVing?? My wife and I have been enjoy it for the last year but find that we often seem out of place because everyone in the park is “silver” Not that there’s anything wrong with that and not that I don’t have my share of them either!My point being, is there anthing being done to encourage younger families! There are plenty of affordable used RV’s out there and once they get hooked it would lead to bigger purchases and more people getting into it. There are many families who spend far more on vacations than they would purchasing and enjoying the RV lifestyle.
