The market for towable tiny homes has been growing in recent years, but most of these dwellings tend to stay within the width of a typical road. However, the Grande S1, manufactured by California-based start-up PODX GO, stands out from the rest as it folds out to three times its size when deployed.
Currently the subject of an Indiegogo campaign, the Grande S1 boasts a high-tensile steel frame, insulated polyurethane wall and roof panels, and a laminate-covered plywood floor. When towed by a super-duty truck such as a Ford F-250, the structure measures 19 ft 7 in long by 11 ft 6.2 in high by 7 ft 4.6 in wide (6 x 3.5 by 2.3 m) while folded up. The whole unit, including the trailering hardware, weighs 22,000 lb (9,979 kg).
Once the Grande S1 is parked on a cement pad or any other suitable location, its two sides can be hydraulically opened out within just 15 minutes, using a few simple buttons. The expanded space boasts a total floor area of 364 sq ft (33.8 m), which includes a living room/kitchen featuring a countertop, cabinets, refrigerator, stainless steel sink and faucet.
Additionally, the unit has a bedroom equipped with a king-size Murphy bed, wooden folding desk, and cabinet/closet. The bathroom comprises a shower, flush toilet, and vanity.
The unit also comes with an air conditioner, water heater, CO2/smoke alarm, and a standard RV-type water inlet, which can be hooked up to the municipal water system where possible. Moreover, the Grande S1 has a full 120-volt electrical system that can be hooked up to the local grid. However, buyers may also opt for a solar energy storage system for off-grid use.
The versatility of the Grande S1 makes it an ideal option for those looking for a spacious and comfortable home that can be easily transported. Its innovative design and features have already attracted the attention of many, and with the Indiegogo campaign, more people are likely to discover this unique and exciting product.
