Believe or not, there are many people who enjoy living in tiny homes that measure less than 300 sq. ft. Why? Mobility, flexibility, sustainability, cost savings, and lifestyle considerations are some of the reasons people embrace the tiny house movement.
Below, we present the top 20 tiny homes on wheels in the US. For each of these tiny homes, we explain their design elements, building materials being used, and approximate costs involved:
Everett American Tiny House on Wheels
Tiny homes on wheels gain popularity because of the high mobility era we live in. This house measures 288 sq. ft. and costs $67,400. The price includes the building and delivery costs, along with the standard energy-efficient appliances the house is equipped with.
Everett tiny house has a two-tier roof design featuring an energy-efficient and long-lasting 26 gauge steel standing seam metal roof, double pane vinyl windows, LED lighting, and more.
An optional all-in-one portable PV solar package for off-grid living, along with propane hookup and gas range with oven, washer, and dryer combo, and composting toilet can also be ordered.
Some people may be concerned about privacy, but you can draw the built-in blinds any time you want. For an extra fee, the builder can add extra insulation. This feature is often desired by clients who live in a colder climate.
Austin American Tiny House on Wheels
Measuring a bit over 240 sq. ft., this house is sold for $49,600. It’s meant to be a miniature American house with a front porch and a classic gable roof. The price includes the cabinetry, energy-efficient appliances, and a queen-size mattress located in the loft.
The main concern of people who see this design is the apparent lack of natural light because the house has small windows. However, the number of windows compensates for their size, so that the room is beautifully lit when all the blinds are open. If you want to modify the size of the windows, you will have to pay an extra fee.
The Countryside Tiny House on Wheels
Available for the price of $79,884, this tiny house on wheels measures 203 sq. ft. The name of the design is meant to match its rustic appearance. The house is built on a steel trailer that has safety breaks, leveling jacks, and radial tires.
The bamboo flooring and the outside wooden look give an elegant feel to the entire house. In spite of its size, the house comes with a full-sized shower, a storage area in the loft, and a queen-size bed. A composting toilet is a great plus for the design. The ductless heating and cooling system are mounted on the wall.
Bunkaboose Tiny House on Wheels
In the vision of their designer, this house is a cross between a rustic bunkhouse and a caboose rail car. The starting price of $56,000 includes the shell with all the appliances, the electrical wiring, heating, and cooling system as well as plumbing. EcoCabins guarantee superior quality craftsmanship unlike many pre-fab models on the market.
You can choose whether you want the house on wheels or on a permanent foundation. Some areas don’t accept houses on wheels, so you might not have a choice. Make sure to check local regulations prior to submitting an order.
The Shonsie Tiny House on Wheels
Sold for roughly $60,000, this is a cottage-style tiny house with a 52 sq. ft. sleeping loft that can fit a full-size bed. The house features a gleaming blue or red epoxy floor, and the front porch has a composite deck while the siding is reinforced with polymer composite.
The windows are made of Low-E vinyl. As for heat efficiency, you have to thank its house wrap and window tape weatherization.
The bathroom is big enough to fit a full-size shower and a composting toilet. The kitchen has a solid surface countertop, cabinets, a pantry, a sink, and energy-efficient appliances like a refrigerator and an electric cooktop.
Alpha Tiny House on Wheels
This is a perfect example of how natural textured materials combine to form a modern aesthetic design. The large windows and clean lines speak of its modernity just as much as does its mechanical standing seam metal roof.
The elegance is given by hardwood floors, reclaimed barn wood ceilings, and the shou sugi ban cedar siding.
An interesting feature of the Alpha tiny house design is the fold-down deck where you can enjoy a cup of coffee surrounded by nature. The huge sliding glass door is another unique feature that allows you to naturally ventilate the house on warm days.
Youngstown Tiny House on Wheels

Downstairs, you will find the living room, the kitchen, and the bathroom, while upstairs, there is the loft with a queen-size bed and even a closet!
The kitchen area can actually accommodate a propane gas stove and a mid-size fridge. There are also two classy-looking countertops and a custom cabinet.
As for the storage space, you have an outer locker that’s barely visible toward the right part of the picture. You can use it as a place to keep your gardening tools.
The Stopover Tiny House on Wheels
This is a modest and quite basic tiny home design. It’s meant to be functional, not necessarily unique. The price reflects the lack of interesting features: $36,000, including delivery costs.
The windows are made of dual vinyl panels and provide a certain level of energy efficiency. Hot water is obtained via a propane tankless system, while the Daikin split system ensures the heating and cooling of the house.
The floors are made of hardwood, while the roof is a hail-resistant coated granular shake. We have to admit that all the stainless steel appliances create a very slick interior design.
Vintage Tiny House on Wheels
Measuring a total of 313 sq. ft., the Vintage tiny house costs $59,800 and weighs about 10,000 lbs. It can be built on a trailer with radial tires, electric bakes, and a Hopkins break-away safety system.

The front porch and stairs are very common in American architecture. The house has a composite shake roof and a gray wash shake siding. It is built on a trailer, thus allowing you to park it in an RV park for permanent or temporary residents.
NW Bungalow Tiny House on Wheels
This house measures a bit under 200 sq. ft. and it’s sold for $28,450. If you don’t want the turnkey version, you could buy the finished shell for $18,950.

The exterior siding consists of cedar and batt boards that are stained and then painted. The house comes with all the electrical wiring installed.
The NW Bungalow is built on a triple axle trailer, thus allowing you to basically take the house anywhere you drive, a thing that some Americans love to do. — You see, even though the design is called a bungalow, it fits the American lifestyle. The house has a porch with a single french door and an octagon window that will set apart this design from all the others you see on the block.
The Homestead Tiny House on Wheels
This THOW (tiny house on wheels) covers 210 sq. ft. It has a 20 sq. ft. entry deck plus a 48 sq. ft. draw bridge deck in the back.
Believe it or not, it comes with a full kitchen with plenty of cabinets, a sink, a gas burner, and a refrigerator. The bathroom is also fully equipped. A nice feature is a bar in the lounge.
Water is heated via a propane tank while an electric mini-split AC/heater makes sure the room temperature is perfect.
The house was designed to be eco-friendly, which is why you will see a black/grey water separation system and water collection gutters.
Even though it has wheels, you don’t have to actually move the house around. The trailer has a good breaking system that allows you to remain stationary for however long you want, and the beauty is that you can set up camp in the middle of nature because you have the means to transport it over there in the first place.
Tiny House Travel Trailer
Sold for about $55,000, this beautiful tiny house is set on a custom-built trailer, and it’s insulated with closed-cell verse foam. The cedar and the galvanized corrugated siding mix well to give an elegant look to the construction.
The house has a 60 mil. EPDM rubber roof and Low-e vinyl windows. A very interesting feature of the design is the upgraded keyless entry pad.
It comes of course with all the electrical wiring and plumbing installed. Water is heated via an instant tankless system, while the room temperature is maintained with a heat pump.
The entry door and the windows are weatherproof so that you can park the house in the middle of the mountains and you would still feel warm and cozy inside. Moreover, the house has hardwired smoke detectors to prevent a disaster.
Modern Composite Tiny House on Wheels
The selling price of this THOW is $69,700. For this money, you will get 292 sq. ft. of living space that’s made of one bedroom in the loft, a living room with a small kitchen downstairs, and a bathroom.
The house is built on a custom trailer and it has an advanced light-weight composite wall system with polymerized stucco and composite wood siding.
The elastomeric-coated roof is waterproof, so you won’t have to worry if you live in a rainy climate. Besides, the roof is sloped, so that water and snow can roll down easily as opposed to accumulating on the top to burden the overall structure.
If you prefer a highly eco-friendly house, this may not be the right one for you because it doesn’t have solar panels option, nor a composting toilet. You will have to flush just like anyone else does in a house with a permanent foundation.
Cedar Country Charm Tiny House on Wheels
Sold for roughly $45,150, this THOW has a rough exterior that gives a rustic appearance to the entire construction. There is nothing fancy about this design.
In fact, it’s a simple cuboid box that you can take with you wherever you drive. This design fits perfectly in the countryside and some may argue it looks out of place in more urban settings.
The interior is filled with wood: the floor, the stairs that lead to the loft bedroom, the kitchen cabinets, and even the walls and ceiling itself. — This can make you feel like you live in a cabin in the mountains. The exterior was built with Tennessee cedar. The windows are energy efficient to minimize heat loss.
The storage space in the back actually contains the propane gas tank, the 80-gallon water tank, and the electrical panel. There is a small space left for storage though. However, you can store things in the kitchen cabinets and the storage bench with removable cushions.
The Grand Teton Tiny House on Wheels
This house has a special outdoor space where you can add patio furniture. Some might argue, why not put the furniture directly on the ground in front of the house?
For example, the ground might be uneven and the deck solves this problem or there is nothing to shelter you from the hot sun/rain and the existing structure can easily be covered with a tarp to get rid of this issue.
The downstairs space is divided into a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom while upstairs you will find a sleeping loft and a queen loft. The price is estimated at $70,000. for 355 sq. ft.
The very basic version costs around $67,000. It’s true that this house is not as tiny as one would expect. In fact, it easily matches the size of the apartment.
The Castle Peak Tiny House on Wheels
There are 2 versions of this tiny house depending on square footage: 314 and 335 sq. ft. with an approximate $3,000 difference in price, the base price being $55,995. There are 2 lofts: the master king and the twin loft.
The main floor is divided into a full bath, a kitchen with a living room, and some extra space that can be used as a den, a 3rd bedroom or a media room.
The exterior combines Galvalume metal siding with a fiberglass rear door and a fiberglass insulated French entry door with built-in blinds.
The interior walls are made of white bead boards while the ceiling is made of black alder wood. The wood is made of pine and the cabinets display a beautiful black alder wood.
Wiring and plumbing is installed. The house is not as eco-friendly as it could be, though.

18′ Off-Grid Tiny House on Wheels

The insulation is fire resistant and the house is waterproof. The interior is made of drywall and it’s spacious enough to fit everything you would have in a small apartment.
