FAQs

What code are Tiny Mountain House RV’s built to?

Tiny Mountain Houses is one of only a handful tiny house builders in the nation that builds and certifies their Tiny homes to the National NFPA 1192 Trailer Code., which is the same code most RV’s and Travel Trailers are built to.  Building our homes to the national RV Code allows for simplified financing, insuring and fully legal road transportation. Our homes hook up the same way as a standard RV, just hook up and you’re good to go! Tiny Mountain Houses custom built RV’s are built for a multitude of uses including seasonal accommodation, recreational uses or traveling to your favorite destination!

How do I finance a Tiny Mountain RV?

Securing financing for your Tiny Mountain House RV is as simple as getting a car loan! We recommend talking with your local credit union to explore your financing options for an RV loan. Credit Unions typically have similar rates to banks but they typically allow much more time to pay it off.  For example, a bank may offer a 5-year loan with payments of around $1,500 per month where a credit union might finance the same amount for 15 years with payments being around $500 per month, that’s a pretty significant difference!

What’s the difference between a Tiny Mountain House RV and a Park Model?

Our Tiny House RV’s are sometimes mistaken for Park Model RV’s.  When in fact our homes are built and certified as travel trailers not park models. Travel Trailers are easier to finance and our homes are within legal size requirements as stated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, subsequently they do not require any special permits or licenses to tow them down the road, you haul them just like a normal travel trailer.

That being said this isn’t always as prevalent to the lending institutions. Sometimes they see a Tiny Mountain House RV and assume it is a Park Model and the loan is denied because they don’t understand what the home truly is.  Often time’s credit unions and banks need a bit of educating to make clear what a Tiny Mountain House RV is. We encourage you to contact us for advice on how to approach your lender to better increase your chances of gaining loan approval.

Why don’t some lenders like to lend on Park Model RV’s?

Credit Unions and banks tend to shy away from lending on Park Model RV’s because they are typically stationary and often encapsulated by a deck which makes them much more difficult to repossess if need be. Buying an RV makes the lenders much more comfortable lending if they know the Tiny Mountain House RV will be used for recreational purposes.

How do I finance a Tiny Mountain House RV?

If you are financing your Tiny Mountain House RV, please ask us and we will issue you a unique Vehicle Identification Number or VIN for short. This number will be accessible to lenders as well as insurance companies. It is optimal to have this in place before submitting your loan application. The VIN will help convey that the home is indeed a certified Travel Trailer RV.
