PRO: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

You get the best of both worlds when you have a tiny house on wheels. You can move whenever and wherever you want. Park your tiny house on the road, take your house with you as you wish. You are in complete command.

CON: THAT WORLD IS GREY

Tiny House comes under a grey area and there’s no clear classification that a tiny house falls in. it is closely associated with Recreational Vehicles (RV) and hence some of the states imply the guidelines of an RV while some states don’t. It’s a lot of headache and requires prior planning before you leave your temporary settlement.

PRO: LESS AREA TO CLEAN

It is with no doubt that tiny house living comes with a reduced space. Since the area to be cleaned is very small, the cleaning can be done in a few minutes.

PRO: FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

At Jaiswani.com, the sidings and beams mentioned in the drawings are lighter and strong at the same time which reduces the load of the trailer and makes it economical to tow. The roof is designed in such a way that makes the tiny house aerodynamic. The right aspects of design make it easy for you to roam freely and without giving a second thought about strength and durability of the tiny house.

CON: FREEDOM IS ATTACHED TO TRUCK

Your freedom of movement is always attached to a truck that will tow your tiny house. In case should your truck gets stalled; your motion will get stopped too and chances are you will be left in wilderness with no other option that to repair your truck first and then move.
