From sleek and modern designs to cozy and rustic abodes, there are countless options to choose from.

In this article, we'll explore 8 of the most epic tiny homes on wheels, each with its own unique charm and character. So sit back, relax, and let's take a tour of these amazing homes that are sure to inspire your inner nomad!

Quick update: I recently ordered my own tiny house - a nice little 7.2 metre model which I might be calling home by the time you read this!

As usual, a ton of research got done... I needed a tiny home ideal for my situation... affordable, sustainable, work from home studio, etc.

As I ploughed through all the different tiny homes on the market (mostly in Australia) I thought it'd be good to share all the tiny homes I came across. So here goes...

Benefits of a tiny house on wheels lifestyle

There are countless benefits to adapting to life in a tiny house on wheels. For one, you'll have the freedom to travel wherever and whenever you want, without ever having to worry about finding a place to stay.

You'll also save a significant amount of money on rent or mortgage payments, as well as utility bills. Not to mention, living in a tiny house allows you to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle, as you'll be using fewer resources and producing less waste.

But perhaps the most significant benefit of a tiny house lifestyle is the sense of freedom and adventure that it brings. You'll be able to explore new places, meet new people, and experience new cultures, all while feeling safe and comfortable in your own home.

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to live a simpler, more minimalist lifestyle, which can be incredibly freeing and fulfilling.

Note: There's a lot of different tiny home styles out there. I personally want my tiny home to stay in one location and I'm not planning to tow it anywhere. But down the track? Who knows!

Popular tiny home designs

When it comes to tiny homes on wheels, there are an abundance of designs and styles to choose from. Some of the designs include sleek and modern homes with clean lines and minimalist interiors.

There are also tiny houses on wheels that are designed to be completely off-grid, with solar panels, composting toilets, and other eco-friendly features.

One of the most popular designs for tiny homes on wheels is the "tiny house with a loft." These homes typically have a small living area on the main level, along with a lofted sleeping area accessible by ladder or stairs.

This design allows for maximum use of space, while also providing a cozy and comfortable sleeping area.

Another popular design for tiny homes on wheels is the "tiny house on a trailer." These homes are typically built on a trailer chassis, making them easy to move from one location to another.

They can be designed to look like traditional homes or to have a more modern, minimalist feel. (I purchased a trailer based tiny home with a sloping gable roof, loft, and under 4 metres in height).

The best materials for building a small home

When it comes to building a tiny house, it's important to choose the right materials to ensure that your home is both durable and lightweight.

Some of the best materials for building a tiny house on wheels include lightweight steel framing, aluminium siding, and fibreglass insulation. Make sure you read the specifics of what type of insulation your tiny home builder plans to use. I made sure to specify insulated walls, ceiling and double glazed windows.

There's a lot of trust involved... especially if you're paying a deposit and instalments to get your tiny house built in stages.

It's also important to choose energy-efficient materials, such as low-E windows and spray foam insulation (if that's what the builder uses), to ensure that your home is as eco-friendly as possible.

And if you're planning to live off-grid, you'll want to invest in solar panels, a water filtration system, and other sustainable features to reduce your reliance on traditional utilities.

Note: I specified my tiny home to be wired solar-ready for when I get those panels!

Innovations in tiny house technology

In recent years, there have been numerous innovations in technology that have made tiny homes on wheels more comfortable, convenient, and eco-friendly than ever before.

For example, many tiny homes now feature composting toilets, which eliminate the need for traditional wastewater systems and allow you to live completely off-grid.

There are also new types of insulation, such as spray foam insulation, which are more energy-efficient and eco-friendly than traditional insulation materials.

Other innovations in tiny home technology include smart home automation systems, which allow you to control everything from lighting to temperature with your smartphone, and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, which use less energy to keep your home comfortable.

8 epic tiny homes on wheels for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle

One of the neat Hangan tiny home models.

1. Tiny Homes by Hangan (Aust) - These guys are who I went with for my own tiny. The pricing was great, I liked the sustainable element (composting toilet, all electric, double glazed windows etc) and it was nice to visit their factory to see what tiny house styles they were working on. (Around A$100,000 for the 7.2 metre Fraser model). TinyHouse.com.au

The Hauslein Luna tiny home model.

2. Hauslein Tiny Home (Aust) - Another sustainable builder, with models ranging from 5 metres (A$100,000) to 9 metres length (A$140,000). Lots of different stylers to choose from, including an off-grid toy hauler that could be made into a stealth tiny house! (Am I dreaming?) You can order a trailer-only build, or to lock up and shell stage if need. Hauslein.com.au

Tips for living in a tiny home

Life in a tiny home can be an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling experience, but it does require some adjustments and lifestyle changes. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your tiny lifestyle:

- Be organised and minimise clutter. In a tiny home on wheels, every inch of space counts, so it's important to keep things organised and clutter-free.

- Stay connected. A rolling home can be isolating at times, so it's important to stay connected with friends and family through social media, video calls, or in-person visits.

- Embrace the outdoors. One of the best things about living in a rolling home is the opportunity to spend time outdoors. Take advantage of this by exploring new places and spending time in nature.

Legal considerations for living in a tiny house

There are often local laws for where your tiny home will live.

When it comes to enjoying a tiny house on wheels, there are some legal considerations to keep in mind. For one, you'll need to ensure that your tiny is built to code and meets all safety standards.

You'll also need to research local zoning laws and regulations to ensure that you're allowed to park your home in certain areas.

In some cases, you may need to obtain special permits or licenses to park your tiny home in certain locations (like RV parks). It's also important to note that some areas have restrictions on the size of rolling homes, so be sure to do your research before investing in a small house.


A tiny house on wheels can be an incredible adventure, offering the ultimate nomadic lifestyle for those willing to take the plunge.

By following these tips and looking after your home (and your health), you can enjoy all the benefits of living in a rolling home while also staying safe, comfortable, and connected. Plus you get to lower your carbon footprint too!
