A tiny house RV is not a traditional house. It is still an RV, and needs to be treated as such.

The tiny house RVs that we manufacture are the best of the best. We will customize and alter the tiny house to try and suit where you plan to put the tiny house, and we will do our best to accomodate many requests. 

With this in mind, there is work involved for every tiny house buyer, and there is extra work involved for those who plan to place the tiny house in areas with extreme winter conditions. 

For the sake of everyone involved, you need to be prepared for winter conditions, and have back-up protocol in place. A tiny house RV is not going to perform the same as a traditional house in extreme winter conditions, and it would be irresponsible to expect it to. The tiny house will work great, and perform well in winter conditions, providing you are ready for it, and prepared to put in the work to maintain the unit.
