Kottage RV Shipping Container Home

For anyone who can’t decide on a park model home or a shipping container home, Kottage RV of Canada has combined the two into one compact hybrid made of solid steel—with all the comforts of a park model. Kottage RV offers these fully customizable units for several functions including remote living and working, temporary offices, clinical and institutional uses and as workshops and recreational buildings.


The individual units range from 160 square feet to 538 square feet and include slideouts like a traditional RV or park model home. They also include solid steel walls and exterior and 2 inch spray foam (R14) in the walls, roof and floor. The doors are solid metal and the windows are argon filled vinyl frame. Exterior features include a Corten steel roof and various color choices, interior features include an 8’6″ ceiling, custom cabinetry, vinyl flooring, electric fridge, gas stove and microwave and a standard size tub and shower as well as a toilet. Each model is built with recycled materials and green building procedures and can be off-grid if necessary.



Kottage RV offers a 15-year warranty and a 5-year “no leak” warranty, and the homes are rated for four seasons and are fully winterized with all plumbing lines located inside the unit. They can also be renovated when necessary. The one-bedroom model costs around $60,000 and a three bedroom unit is closer to $90,000, but each unit is built to order and delivered to your property.

Of all the conversations about a home, I can’t remember any, prior to this, claim a great boon for someone who spent 60 to 90 thousand dollars – in five years this home won’t leak! REALLY? REALLY!

    I was just thinking the same thing! So, the home will last for 15 years but only stay water-proof for 5? That’s crazy.

      You know, that’s not what it says at all. Those are warranties, and I’d be curious to know how they measure against warranties offered by RV or park model manufacturers. I do know that when I bought my house, it came with no warranty at all.

Reminds me of my camp cook days, but way more uptown than the usual Atco.

You can buy a condo 1168sf. with a garage for $56,000 and it will last your life time!

I would have to rate this poor at best!
a Best By Date of 5 years! All for the low, low price of 60/90k OMWord!

These are considered inexpensive because three bedroom houses in Vancouver cost $700,000 and up.

    True on the cost in Vancouver, which is equally unaffordable for Canadians, just like San Francisco isn’t for Americans.
