Our 'skinny' tiny house on wheels

Why 'skinny'? When building a tiny house on wheels it's all about the weight!

We kept this build to under 3t by using lightweight materials and keeping fixtures minimalist.

  • It has been constructed using conventional engineering approved stick-build.

  • Plumbed kitchen sink, bathroom basin and shower to single greywater outlet pipe.
  • Currently sans a toilet, but plumbed for flush toilet.
  • Will be registered as a caravan

The permits and conditions, change between states, as a caravan in NSW you may install a (single) caravan 'on land occupied by the owner of the caravan or campervan in connection with that owner’s dwelling-house, so long as it is used for habitation only by the owner or by members of the owner’s household and is maintained in a safe and healthy condition, 'Local Government (Manufactured Home Estates, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds and Moveable Dwellings) Regulation 2005.

The two most important things to remember with caravan living in an urban environment is that you discuss this with your neighbours and management of wastewater, be that grey or black, is conducted responsibly. 

Alternatively, as registered as a caravan, you can park in a caravan park and connect to services as per a more traditional caravan.
