Tiny home? Why not the Sealander?

Could Germany’s Sealander be the Ultimate Tiny Home?

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

It’s a trailer. It’s a boat. It’s a traveling trailer boat? Maybe it has a little identity crisis, but that doesn’t stop the German-made Sealander uncool. In fact it could very well be the ultimate ‘tiny home’ that goes with you wherever your heart desires, because this little piece of German engineering drives across land and dives into water for an endless trip.

Sealander is a quaint fit for two on the go

For $30,000, the Sealander looks like a nice getaway option for one to two people who can’t decide between an RV or boat. Personally I want to laugh this off as some whacky overpriced piece of floating debris, but there is something oddly charming about it.

Within the small space there are beautiful picturesque windows, premium leather and wood furnishings, a mini kitchen and even a bed for two. One caveat though in turning this into a super hipster tiny home is the bathroom situation. A shower add-on is available, but the toilet that comes as an option in some of the European regions isn’t on the list of add-ons for Canada or the United States. So I guess you’ll have to doo doo as the fish do.

Is it a floating tiny home paradise on wheels?
