Tiny House in a Landscape

Giant Journey - Canada

Jenna Spesard and Guillaume Dutilh are traveling the country in their unique tiny house. This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape features their home in after they crossed the border into Canada. Though Guillaume states it has a little to much HDR and the house looks a little unreal, I personally enjoy the the photo.

I love this house and am excited about your journey. I read on your blog about the weight of your house and that your trailer was built for this weight. Just a note for some of the readers and for you to keep in mind– your tire rating’s pounds per inch have to match your axle weight or your axle weight doesn’t matter. If your trailer is 8000 pounds, your tire rating should collectively support that weight. So each of your tires should be rated at close to 2000 lbs. each. Axle weight is important, but it ultimately comes down to the tires. They are what is actually moving your trailer down the road.
Also for readers who are getting ready to buy a trailer, be conscious of the tongue weight, too. If your tiny house is going to weigh 8000 pounds, then the tongue has to be able to pull that weight down the road and even support a portion of the weight. Just two things to watch for in choosing a trailer, axle weight, and tires. Safe travels to you both!

    That’s very true Marsha! We purchased a Tumbleweed trailer and each tire is rated to support something like 2,640lbs at 65psi or so (can’t remember exactly). But yeah, you have to make sure your trailer is either from a reputable manufacturer/retailer or that it’s thoroughly inspected.

Live in the 150 Mile House area of BC. Have RV hook ups for visitors. If you want a place to park, just let us know. Love to see your home, wondered what was up when we started seeing little houses being towed around. Might be the perfect thing for anyone who wants a break from the hustle and bustle of the main house. Multi-generation family, grown children, grandchild and pets. Love to meet you and learn a bit more about your tiny home. We are dog friendly.

Maybe you could improve fuel mileage while towing the house by making the front-facing portion of the house a little more aerodynamic like those aero pieces you see on big trucks. Love the house.

Looks comfy. What a way to travel. My father actually traveled from Oklahoma to Oregon in a covered Conestoga wagon. That was in the early 1900’s. No gas or paved roads or cafes were used. Even though cars existed they were poor and the trip took over six months. On the good side, site seeing was a daily experience.
Happy trails,
