Tiny House RV FAQ’s

What is the cost of a Perch & Nest THRV?

At Perch & Nest, no two homes are alike. There are no models or plans to conform to. Each of our homes is custom designed with the users needs and budget in mind. Therefore, each THRV is quoted based on the materials, size, and the desired level of completion. (Ie. DIY Shell, RV Certified Shell, or Move-In Ready.)

What size is a THRV?

DOT guidelines permit us to design structures within 8.5′ wide, 40′ in length, and 13.5′ in height. Most of our designs utilize the maximum width and height allowed. However, our “Roost” designs are then numbered by their length (Ex. A Roost22 is 22′ in length, a Roost30 is 30′ in length, and so on.). You will find examples of design possibilities within various lengths inside our virtual gallery but always keep in mind, your tiny has yet to be designed.

Are there designs to choose from?

At Perch & Nest, we believe the only way to achieve efficient living in a small space is to have your home designed around your needs and use. Therefore, we do not have models or plans to choose from or conform to. Each of our homes is custom designed with your needs and budget in mind. And although we do not have “catalog” options to choose from, we do offer FREE estimation services and pro design services are included in each build.

How do you finance a tiny house RV?

Our tiny house RVs are eligible for traditional travel trailer RV loans with most major banks. We suggest exploring pre-approval for an RV loan with your home bank but there are many lending options available as well as a link to Lightstream at the bottom of each of our site pages. (You can also find year, make, and model info via the NADA link in the same location.) If you are not using a lender for your purchase, tinys are manufactured using a 3 payment plan. A 25% initial deposit begins the trailer fabrication and design consult, 50% begins shell construction, and the final balance is due upon completion.

How long does it take to build a THRV?

Of course, under any construction circumstances, finish’s, weather, and material availability may dictate build time, but our average completion time is 8-12 weeks from design to delivery.

Can Perch & Nest help me build my home myself?

Yes! We offer both DIY shells and RV Certified Shells. Both of these DIY package options include design consulting, material lists, and on-going support while you finish your home on your own.

What is the process once I decide to buy?

Once you approve your preliminary estimate, you will receive purchase documents by email to sign electronically. Once these documents are complete, you will receive a deposit invoice and once your deposit is received, we will contact you to begin the remote design process.

Can I purchase a partially completed THRV?

Yes! We offer three completion options. DIY Shell, RV Certified Shell, and Move-in Ready. 

Will you deliver my THRV?

Don’t fret! We will assist you with delivery as we approach completion of your tiny home by connecting you with a professional and experienced hauler or guiding you in selecting the right vehicle for picking up your tiny home from us. 

Can I come see homes before I "go tiny"?

Yes! If you are just getting started on your tiny house journey, we recommend getting into as many tiny homes as possible. We offer overnight rentals and tours and consults for the tiny curious.

Does Perch & Nest build foundation homes?

While we no longer offer foundation construction services to the public, we do occasionally purchase and rehab small farms and unique structures. Browse properties available for sale on our “Already Hatched” page or contact us if you are interested in selling a property in need of restoration.
