A Nampa, Idaho company is cashing in on the big trend of going small.

Jesse Collinsworth started Tiny Idahomes with his wife a little more than two years ago.

“My wife and I owned an RV, it got left in the mountains a little too long and the roof caved in from the snow load,” Collinsworth says.

When rebuilding their camper, Collinsworth says he became frustrated with the construction of the R.V., so he did some research and came up with a better way using the tiny-house model.

“We build Tiny House RV’s and with travel trailers we’re allowed to build up to 400 square feet,” he says.

The mobility sets these particular tiny homes apart. They’re Recreation Vehicle Industry Association certified.
