Ready to Move In Tiny Towable that is Not-So-Tiny on the Inside
Take a look inside this Tiny Towable that is not-so-tiny on the inside.
This Tiny Towable just showed up on a Garage Sale Group I follow on Facebook. It is a 2019 Aurora Cappuccino FKS Tiny Home.
It is currently set up at Acony Bell Tiny Home Village near me here in in Western North Carolina near Hendersonville. But it is on wheels, so it can be moved anywhere.
Currently it is set up on blocks with a heated blanket water line, wiring, and buried septic piping.
This tiny house is only 8.5’ wide when you are towing it.
But has two slide-outs to expand it to 15.5’ wide.
The slide-outs make all the difference. The not-so-tiny house has a bathroom at one end. From this view, the living room is on the left and the bedroom is on the right. There is washer in the bathroom and extra storage in a loft.
From this view, the bedroom is on the left and the living room is on the right. The kitchen has plenty of storage and counter space.
The front door comes in through the living room area. The interior wall gives the bedroom privacy.
With the slides out, there is plenty of room for a sofa and some tables. There is additional storage along the ceiling.
There is a built in cabinet beside the door.
The kitchen has plenty of usable space.
This lets you see the center interior wall that separates the living room from the bedroom.
The table extends or folds down.
There is a closet with a mirror door built in.
Bath and Laundry
The bathroom has a washer built in under the sink.
And there is a window. I hate a cave bathroom.
There is a loft over the bathroom with a ladder that slides along a rail to easily reach everything.

Aurora by ZeroSquared
The Aurora Tiny Home is built by ZeroSquared, a group of designers and fabricators out of Canada. The company builds tiny houses tailored for people used to comfortable and modern living spaces. Not too small or as simplified as the tiny houses you are used to seeing.
Here are a couple of photos of an Aurora Tiny House being built.
They are able to add so much space to a tiny towable with slide-outs. There are slide-outs on some RVs, but theirs are not the same. This is designed as a residential system. They make two options. Mobile is fully automated and opens and closes in minutes. Fixed is for folks that will never move their home after setup.
Here is a video of the slide-out working.
When our team first came across tiny homes, we immediately fell in love with the idea of downsizing to achieve a higher quality of life. The more we dove in, the more we recognized the freedom and benefits tiny home owners could avail themselves to. Living in a tiny home was a great way to minimize the stresses of everyday life. Cleaning was easier, repairs were less expensive, not to mention people could actually own their homes and take it with them if/when they moved. We became fascinated so many people could solve so many of their problems by this simple change of lifestyle.
There was only one problem: None of us could actually see ourselves living in any of the tiny homes we saw. All the ones we came across in our research were either too small, or so simplified that most of us would miss major elements of our current housing. The tiny homes we were finding weren’t tailored for people who were used to comfortable and modern living spaces. As a group of designers and fabricators who are constantly thinking up the impossible, we wanted to create something which we would want to live in.
