More and more senior citizens are shifting to tiny house RVs. This new trend allows seniors to invest in smaller spaces to spend their retired life off-grid and burden-free.

Tiny homes let seniors lead a simpler life and escape the burdens of maintaining their house and a lifetime of belongings during their golden years. Seniors find tiny homes both very comfortable and affordable. The best part is they offer mobility as well.

Everyone has their own reason for opting for one of these tiny homes. Some park it in their family member’s backyard, this way maintaining the private spaces for both while enjoying the satisfaction of living near loved ones. Others consider these tiny mobile dwellings to be a comfortable alternative to the traditional RV. Single seniors find these tiny dwellings to be cool and less stressful. Some others like the idea of retiring into an RV, but with the comforts of a normal home.

One retiree, Bette Presley (age 72), recently moved into a 166-square-foot Tumbleweed Elm cabin, as she decided to minimize her lifestyle. She found all the comforts in this compact space with the freedom from the hassle of maintaining a larger area.

Presley said, “We are consumers. We buy too much. We don’t need all our belongings. I just experienced the clutter, to live in excess, and I didn’t find it particularly satisfying.”
