Tiny Home Features
- EF1SB190 24 valve turbo cummins diesel engine gives you decent mileage (8 to 9 miles per gallon) and due to the low number of overall miles this motorhome has travelled (159,2xx), you can expect it to last for a long time.
- Propane RV stove with 4 burners is an upgrade over the usual 1 burner stove found in most tiny homes.
- The 10+ windows serve double duty as they allow a lot of natural light to flow through and passively insulate this skoolie tiny house.
- Full size memory foam mattress with under bed storage and strip lighting is a marvel of space optimization and ambience.
Head inside to be welcomed by the cheery interior. The living room area comprises a 3-seater couch, a tiled wood stove hearth and a 32-inch smart TV with a blu-ray player. The arched roof with cedar wood panels give it a warm ambience as you go further in.
The modern design kitchen is outfitted with a large stainless steel single basin sink, modern kitchen faucet, Herringbone design poured epoxy countertops, and more! Storage under the sink is decent and is complemented by even more storage under the countertops.
The sleeping area boasts a queen sized bed with memory foam mattress, a bunk bed with custom ladder, and a generous amount of storage areas. There’s eight deep storage drawers, one large cubby and a large vertical open storage with five deep cubbies.
The overall durable construction is augmented by the good insulation due to the windows and the insulated spray foam walls and ceiling. This, on top of ½ inch foam insulation board top, with ¾ inch OSB floor insulation and the heater means you can travel in relatively cold areas or during the winter without much worry!
