This is where downsizing comes into play. Move into a mobile home, and you will have to get rid of many of your possessions, you will have to downsize whether you like it or not. Along the way, you'll also have to compromise and, in some cases, accept that you'll never get to enjoy some of the things you took for granted in your non-mobile home – things like, say, a balcony or a terrace.
Oh, but where there's a will, there's also a way, especially if the will is backed up by the right budget. A custom tiny house can be one way to sidestep spatial limitations to get a mobile home that still offers some features of a regular home, more interior space, maximized comfort, and the same degree of mobility as a smaller counterpart. Some compromising will still have to happen, but the everyday experience will also be improved considerably.
Indeed, the Mobi Individual Peach has a feature few other tinies can boast of: a terrace up top, extending the length of the trailer. When even an extra square inch counts as a win, as it does in a tiny house, an 8-meter-long (26.2 feet) terrace is a huge victory against those limitations because it will double as an outdoor lounge whenever the unit is in park mode.
As shown in the video at the bottom of the page, the terrace is of the pop-up variety in the sense that you set it up by bringing the railings into position and folding down the metal staircase, which travels secured to the side of the trailer. The downside to such a sizable terrace is that you have to furnish it, and if you plan on spending a lot of time on the road, that means finding a place to store the garden furniture as you travel. The upside is obvious: you get an extra-large outdoor space to do with as you will.
The wood and metal exterior in dark gray and bottle green is matched by an all-wood interior in white, with black and emerald green accents. To house sits on a custom triple-axle MH trailer of 8.4 meters (27.5 feet) in length, so it's still road legal. It's not the largest tiny house we've seen, even by comparison with other non-park models, but it makes up for that through expansive, wraparound glazing that opens up the space and brings in plenty of natural light.
The unit is insulated for year-round use. Features include a full bathroom, a residential-size kitchen, storage integrating stairs (there's even a slide- and fold-out dining table for two hidden in there somewhere), a storage-integrating couch in the living, and additional storage in the lofts, neither of which offers standing height.
Until then, here's Mobi Individual Peach proving that not all tinies are cut from the same cloth. If anything, it's refreshing to see there's still room for innovation in the already-crowded market of mobile homes.
