We don’t usually pump products here, but this is an UNREAL buy. Seriously, just take a look at the reviews.
Meet the “Winnhaven”, which looks like an ordinary (albeit, very nice) RV on the outside. The inside though? That’s where it takes a serious deviation from the norm.
Outfitted with all sorts of custom accents, this 30′ is seriously a work of art. Built to take part in what’s been dubbed “Wander in the West”, which is basically an epic 8,700 mile long trip across the country that includes 27 “instameets”.

It had to happen eventually: a THOW that misses the commonly cited 400-square-foot cutoff for true tiny house status. (Does that make it a SHOW?) The splash on the Timbercraft Tiny Homes website mentions “living large in 150 square feet”, and they did indeed start out with – and still offer – homes in that size range. Lately, though, they (or maybe their customers) have adopted a bigger is better philosophy. They did a very nice 352-square-foot luxury farmhouse earlier this year, and their new Retreat is even larger. A 33-foot gooseneck trailer, plus cantilevers on either end, give it a whopping 416 square feet of floor area. Of course they’ve been able to fit an awful lot inside, including, supposedly, three bedrooms, although as there are no photos of the third one we’re assuming it’s fairly small. Let’s take a look:
Muted colors on the board and batten siding and standing seam metal roof give belie the Retreat’s hugeness.
The rearward view from the French doors shows the living room, kitchen, and larger loft bedroom.
The interior is all pine, painted white on the walls, stained dark on the ceiling, and left yellow for the floors.
The kitchen has all the cabinets and counter space you could want, and – except for a dishwasher – all the full-size appliances you’d find in a regular house.
The stairs lead to the master bedroom; the catwalk apparently goes to the third one. Note the electric fireplace opposite the sofa.
To the left is the laundry room…
…which is also a full bathroom complete with tiled tub, toilet and vanity.
The master bedroom had good headroom and additional storage in the front cantilever.
Mouse House Tiny Homes’s first build, a 20-foot THOW on a custom heavy duty drop axle trailer, has recently come down in price to an even $60,000. For that money, maybe you’ll want to snap this one up as is – or if you like the workmanship and style but need a few different features, check out their website for info on available options.
Slight cantilevers on each end add a little extra loft space. Insulation is good at R-19 ceiling / R-13 walls / R-21 floor.
There’s a bathroom beyond that sliding door, with the same quartz counters and subway tile you’ll see in the kitchen.
Instead of a small sofa, you get two full size armchairs. The floor is real hickory.
The storage stairs look a little steep, but they do hold a decent sized closet.
The kitchen under the secondary loft is a highlight of the house.
The main loft has good floor area, but not a whole lot of headroom.
All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes it’s Golden – like this beautifully stunning tiny home from American Tiny House. To help it stay gold, Ponyboy, the 28-foot THOW has a 45-year standing seam metal roof and is built with premium lumber to qualify it as a virtually maintenance-free home. It’s priced at $69,700 base, but that includes some features that would be added-cost extras in a lot of tiny houses: energy-efficient windows, custom cabinet work, and a full appliance package. Financing’s available, too, and delivery is free to anywhere in the Lower 48. American can build one in 10 to 12 weeks; contact them here or call (903) 930-8500 for more info.
