comparing to tiny homes
O F F – G A S S E D
Other than spending some summer days at the camper of a grade school friend, playing war and tether ball and our novice attempts at jai alai, my RV experiences have been limited. I am not an RVer. But I am very curious about tiny homes, and not just a low square footage, but little free standing homes, often built by the owners themselves, where everything has a purpose and a point, living small and intentionally.
So I went to the I-X Center, with small homes in mind, and was rather astounded by the 600+ RVs on display. And, yes, well aware of being in off-gas city, what with being surrounded by all these new vehicles with all their new synthetic pieces and parts. There were free-standing homes, pop-up campers, huge monster motorhomes with pop-outs and hallways and steps up to entertainment rooms. So many had huge TVs, some even had exterior TVs. Oh, and one RV had 2 bathrooms in it! After going up and down many stairs (good exercise!) to see what there was to see, I was most taken by a little red and white retro camper, which could be pulled behind a car. Very well designed, functional and cozy.
For full-fledged RVers, this must have been heaven, with rows and rows of models, and options and fabrics and colors and accessories…
Overwhelming? Inspired by designers? Bitten by the travel bug? Impressed by the variety? Ready to make an offer? Wishing there were a tiny home show? More interested in the huge Ferris wheel in the middle of everything, or the Cleveland Metroparks’ animal exhibit?
