Do you want more freedom in your life?
Possibly, you’re like Alex Pino. In 2007 he started to simplify because he wanted freedom in his life.
By 2009 he went from working as a computer technician and living in a 1400 square foot home to writing about tiny houses and simple living while building his own publishing business out of a 500-square-foot apartment.
Today Pino lives in a 600-square-foot apartment near the beach writing and learning about tiny houses, micro cabins, house-trucks, and other small dwellings.
Pino also maintains a website, Tiny House Talk, where he muses about small spaces and more freedom.
By now you’re probably wondering where I’m going with this story and why, as an RVer, I’d be interested in tiny houses.
Tiny House Talk recently came to my attention when Pino blogged about teardrop trailers and featured SignaTour Campers, a small company based in Tampa, Florida that builds teardrop trailers.
All the micro RVs include a natural birch interior, indoor and outdoor carpeted floors, aluminum wheels and fenders, storage, and a host of available options.
The SignaTour Campers fleet now includes the 600-pound Daytona, the 800-pound Venice, the 860-pound Biscayne, and the 1,060-pound Rockledge.
The 4-feet x 7-feet Daytona is their smallest trailer at 600 pounds gross weight and 60 pounds tongue weight which makes it easy to tow with any car and some motorcycles. This little teardrop camper features rear entry, two windows, and a full-width front interior shelf.
The sleeping area is 46½-inches wide x 77-inches long x 44-inches tall. Exterior is 62-inches wide x 134-inches long x 58-inches tall.
The next size up is the 5-feet x 8-feet Venice at 800 pounds gross weight and 88 pounds tongue weight. This popular teardrop features a rear entry, two windows, full-width front cabinet with sliding doors, and a front locking cargo area.
The interior features clear-coated birch with aluminum ceiling trim, fully carpeted floor, and folding queen mattress that stores under cabinet to increase floor space. Electric is provided to the camper via RV access door with one double interior outlet and one single exterior outlet.
At 860 pounds gross weight and 90 pounds tongue weigh, the Biscayne also measures 5-feet x 8-feet and boasts double side entry, rear cabinetry, front cargo area, and a full-width front interior shelf. You’ll get lots of natural lighting in this one because of the double entry glass doors and the two windows.
The sleeping area is 58½-inches wide x 77-inches long x 44-inches tall. Exterior is 78-inches wide x 134-inches long x 60-inches tall.
At 1060 pounds gross weight and 110 pounds tongue weight, the 5-feet x 8-feet Rockledge has a 3500 pound suspension, front storage box, double side entry, two windows, cabinets in the back, full-width front interior shelf, and a 300-pound rated roof rack for bicycles, kayaks, canoes, and roof top storage boxes. This one is geared towards the outdoors man.
