Having a small house and a small motorhome provide ultimate freedom! The small house frees you financially and the small motorhome frees you geographically.
Since it’s much less expensive to buy and maintain a small house, your ability to buy and operate a small motorhome is much more within reach. Most people who have big houses can’t afford to buy a motorhome much less pay for the maintenance and gas.
One of the major appeals of a small house and tiny living is that you have more freedom because you have more money and time. A small motorhome extends your freedom to the entire continent where you live. It also empowers you to be able to spend time in beautiful natural environments and leave the moment you’re ready to move on.
A small motorhome in comparison to a large motorhome offers many of the same advantages that a small house versus a large house does. They are less expensive to buy, maintain, and fuel. And as with small houses, they take less time to clean. They are also easier to maneuver, park, and store/garage. Garaging is not even a possibility for a large motorhome.
The smallest motorhome is the Class B. These are constructed on a van chassis with raised roof lines. The designers of these tiny motorhomes have gotten very creative in the efficient use of space, water, and fuel. Through these innovations, many of the comfort features you used to only see in larger motorhomes are now cleverly built into the Class B. Many of the Class B’s now even come with a private bathroom with an enclosed shower, which is a must as far as I’m concerned.
The Class C is the next size up and the Class A is the largest motorhome (land yacht). I know the classification system doesn’t make any sense. Being that the Class B is the smallest is seems logical that it would be classified at one end of the scale – A or C. Must have been an afterthought.
Since a motorhome can contain a lot of technology and expensive equipment like a heavy-duty engine and transmission, a new one can be more expensive than a small house. But if you factor in the cost of the land that the small house is built on they could be about the same price. To give this perspective, compare this scenario to the cost of buying a large house and a large Class A motorhome. I would estimate that the cost would be more than double. Then you’d have to compare the cost to maintain and fuel them. Here again, I would estimate the cost of the big house and big motorhome to be two to three times more. And I’d lean in favor of three times more approximation.
Can you envision your small house and small motorhome lifestyle? Picture your striking small house on a beautiful piece of land with your sleek small motorhome and small (micro) car comfortably parked inside your garage.
Now picture your small motorhome parked next to the ocean, a lake, or a stream. Then imagine being able to go there whenever you want without concerns about having enough money or time. That’s the ideal setup.
