A Home built for hurricanes and earthquakes


When we say "our travel homes are like homes built for hurricanes and earthquakes," we're emphasizing our focus on creating a durable, safe, and resilient living space that can endure travel across the country. We have now lived in ours for three and a half years, driving more than 50,000 miles, and there is not even a crack in the tile.


Structural Integrity: Just as homes in hurricane and earthquake-prone regions are constructed to withstand extreme forces of nature, our travel homes are designed with robust structural elements. This includes reinforced steel framing, anchoring systems, hurricane straps, and materials chosen for their ability to resist strong winds and seismic activity. Above the trailer chassis foundation, we use all residential structural elements such as high performance building wraps, double and triple pane windows, top of the line aluminum siding.


Safety: Safety is a paramount concern. Akin to earthquake-resistant buildings, our travel homes are built around safety with a custom made trailer chassis, fully independent suspension, and disk brakes all around. The foundation is the most important part of a traditional home, and for something moving along and across americas highways, it certainly has our utmost attention.


Weather Resistance: Much like hurricane-resistant homes, our travel homes are weatherproofed to keep out rain, wind, and debris. Built to Florida residential hurricane standards, they are sealed tightly to prevent leaks, and their windows and doors are impact-resistant, safeguarding against damage from flying objects during storms. Our roofs are standing seam metal roofs, allowing fastening of solar panels and other features to be attached with non-penetrating clamps, again, rated for hurricanes.


Resilience: The comparison to homes built for hurricanes and earthquakes underscores the idea that our travel homes are built to endure extreme situations. They are constructed to withstand the rigors of long journeys, rough terrain, and unpredictable weather, providing travelers with a sense of security and reliability. They have to last over time.


In essence, when we make this statement, we want to assure our customers that our travel homes are designed with the utmost consideration for safety and resilience, allowing them to embark on adventures with confidence, knowing that their mobile living spaces can withstand a wide range of challenging conditions.
