How long is the build time frame?
The manufacturing lead time is 8 weeks. We will do our best to have your RV begin as soon as possible, however this does depend entirely on the amount of Tiny House RVs that we have on the go. We typically are placing order 6-7 months in advance to when the RV will be completed.

For this, we require a $25,000 CAD non-refundable retainer (this amount will be put towards your first payment of the home). This retainer is deducted off of your initial 1/3rd payment, which is due 1 week before manufacturing begins. The payments are as follows:
I am from the USA, can I still buy a Mint Tiny House RV?
Absolutely! We can use a third party delivery company to bring your Tiny House RV to you; no matter where you are in Canada and the USA.
Do you deliver to the USA?
Yes, we do! In fact our Tiny House RVs can be delivered anywhere across Canada and the United States. There is a $700 border documentation fee for import of the tiny home through customs.
Do I have to pay the $700 border documentation fee?
The fee is for a broker to import the tiny house RV into the USA. They ensure all the paperwork ahead of time, and arrange for smooth sailing through the customs import process. This fee is mandatory if we are arranging delivery for you. If you are transporting the RV across the border yourself, you are more than welcome to waive the fee and arrange the paperwork yourselves.
Is there any duty to be paid on the tiny home going to the USA?
No, however your local State may require that you pay Usage tax on the value of the tiny house RV. This is done with your local road insurance company, and the amount of tax due is based on your local State’s Usage tax rate.
How does pricing work for US buyers
Quite simple, all our prices are in Canadian dollars, so the price is fixed purely on the exchange rate at point of purchase/payment.
Do I need to prep my site?
Yes, we recommend either a concrete pad or a gravel pad (graded and levelled). You will also need to ensure you prepare yourself for any possible winter conditions. This includes, but is not limited to; having a back-up generator, ensuring that you have back-up propane bottles, etc. See our free Site Services Guide for more detailed information.
I found a great site, but it has no septic or power. Do you build tiny house RVs for off-grid?
We do not install any solar, however we can design the tiny house RV to be off-grid ready, complete with propane heating, composting toilet, 12V lighting, propane appliances, etc. See our free Site Services Guide for more detailed information.
Where can I park the Tiny House RV?
All of our Tiny House RVs are certified as Recreational Vehicles (RVIA NFPA 1192 and CSA Standard Z240 RV) therefore in most areas they fall under the same category as any other RV when you are looking for a place to park. In this regard, please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to be aware of any bylaws that may effect your location.
If I am not going off-grid, what hookups will I need on site?
All our standard base models are equipped for electricity on site. We recommend you have 50A available to the home if possible!
Each RV comes standard with a 3” RV grey water and black water hookup, which will give you the option of hooking the home into septic/sewer. The water connection is hooked up with a simple garden hose connection! We can supply you with a 50A Power cord (20ft), as well as the necessary sewer hookups and water hose so that you are ready to hook into services as soon as the tiny house RV is delivered to you! See our free Site Services Guide for more detailed information.
What hookups do I need on site?
All of our standard base models are all equipped for electricity on site. They all come standard with 3 inch RV grey water and black water hookups, which give you the option of hooking them up to any septic/sewer on site. The water is hooked up via garden hose connection. See our free Site Services Guide for more detailed information.
Is my Tiny House RV equipped for cold winters?
We insulate all our Tiny House RVs using closed cell foam for the walls and roof for the rigidity and R-value, and rigid insulation in the floors. This gives you an R-value of R21. You will still need to add insulated skirting around the trailer chassis, to regulate the temperature shift below the trailer chassis. We often have some recommended upgrades for those living in extreme winter climates. For example we often recommend adding in a propane forced air furnace, or upgrading the mini split to an Arctic mini split (220V) to better withstand the cold climates. See our free Cold Climate/Winter Guide for more detailed information.

For more in-depth details, please refer to our Guides/Resources, however below is a sampling of some commonly asked questions about certain tiny house features!
I am Considering a Composting toilet. What models do you offer, and what are the pros and cons of each?
The composting toilet options we offer: Nature’s head composting toilet, and the Separett Villa Composting toilet. Both are great models when it comes to composting toilets! The main difference between the two is that the Separett is plumbed directly into your grey water, whereas the Nature’s head you would need to empty the liquid waste manually from the Liquid waste vessel supplied with the toilet.
Do you offer incinerating toilets?
At this present time, most incinerating toilets are not rated for use in RV’s, so we cannot install them.
I see your Oven/Cooktops are Propane. Do you offer different models for these?
Our oven’s are typically propane in order to comply with RV electrical requirements. In order to install Propane appliances, they must be rated for use in an RV (due to movement during transport), and thus must be listed for RV use. For this reason our standard oven/cooktops are Furrion oven/Cooktops.
