We've seen plenty of tiny houses that can be towed on the road, but here's one that floats too. The Heidi-Ho is a cabin on wheels that sleeps three and is based on a pontoon boat.

The Heidi-Ho consists of a 30 ft (9.1 m) pontoon boat that measures 11.5 ft (3.5 m) wide as standard and has a 115 bhp (85 kw) Suzuki engine. However, its width can be reduced to 8.5 ft (2.6 m) so the whole thing can be placed on a road legal trailer for transportation without any additional permits.

Additionally, there's the tiny house itself, which is really more of a fishing cabin. Indeed, it's based on the Ice Castle Fish House Sport Angler model, modified by Heidi-Ho owner Scott Cronk, and can be removed from the pontoon boat if preferred and and towed by itself. Its exterior has aluminum siding, with fiberglass insulation to keep out the chill.

Visitors enter into the kitchen area, which includes cabinetry, an oven and three-burner propane-powered stove, a fridge, and a sink. Nearby is a bathroom with a composting toilet.

The living/dining area has a table and a couple of bench seats that can be converted into a double bed. There's a bunk above and the entire area can be opened up to the outside with an operable rear wall. An outdoor shower and chairs are installed outside on the deck.

The Heidi-Ho sports a 175-watt solar panel on the roof, which is connected to a couple of batteries. Other notable features include a greywater tank, stereo system, and an electric water heater. A propane-powered heater can be used to warm the interior.

The Heidi-Ho was completed earlier this year and is currently up for sale for US$64,000. It's located in Katherine Landing, Lake Mohave, Arizona. Check out the listing for more information.

I was hoping to see it wheeled on and off the boat, or are the wheels on the side decoration?

A swing and a miss. I like the fully open back, but they =absolutely= need a screen door covering it on the water (and most places.) How about adding a usable amount of solar? And will people please stop putting completely unfinished wood in tiny houses? Within a year, finger oils will have permanently stained those boards to the point they can't be properly finished. Question: How many docks allow you to back your truck up to your boat to load or remove your RV from it? G'luck

I've seen an old pontoon boat with a van style mini-motorhome on it, the guy said it was drive-on,drive off. I kind of thought the coast guard would impound it if they saw it, but he said it was 5 years old.
