FROM A SINGLE RV

In early 2017 a combat veteran friend of Warrior Homesteads donated an older RV as opposed to selling it online. Although older, it was in amazing shape. Usually, the RVs that are donated to Warrior Homesteads are taken apart and sold for scrap, to help further our mission. Since the unit was in livable condition, we contacted some of our veterans in need to see if they wanted it.

The response was overwhelming.

Since then we have been trying to solicit more RV donations to fill the huge need we have for units. Knowing our struggle Trailer Made’s staff stepped up to the challenge, and offered their help.

One Home At A Time

Trailer Made has been supporting Warrior Homesteads for years, and now have committed their help in a big way. With every tiny home kit or tiny home trailer sold through Operation: Tiny Tribute, a percentage of the sale is donated directly to Warrior Homesteads!

Our all-volunteer staff helps coordinate all donations and any deeply discounted supplies obtained for the build. These materials are then provided to one of our certified building partners. Our partnering companies have committed their time and love to provide one of a kind creations, custom made for each veteran we help.

Each veteran is different and may have a different need. That’s why we proudly say we can build a tiny home for any veteran with any physical disability. Furthermore, our homes can be configured for virtually any environment, as not all homes are always going to be attached to a grid (receiving power from a power company but when local law permits).

No Project Too Large or Too Small

If you are thinking about building your own tiny home, mobile office, or even pop up shop, why not give us a chance to help. Our staff is passionate about making your vision come to life, and helping the most deserving Americans!
