No, we do not currently offer financing. We offer a structured payment plan. We can connect you with a bank that offers RV loans for CSA/RVIA certified homes.
How does the plumbing work?
All of our micro homes are plumbed to be connected to public water and sewer. The water comes in through an RV hose, and leaves via an RV sewer valve. A sewer hose would connect the house to the sewer. In the event you aren’t connected to the sewer, we recommend a portable tank (or two) as seen on www.pplmotorhomes.com. We include a standard toilet. Depending on your specific needs, we could include a compost or RV-type toilet. We recommend that you consult with a green building professional to help with green alternatives such as gray water systems, water catches, etc.

Hummingbird micro homes are wired for electricity (30 amp service) and are ready to be plugged in through a plug on the outside of the home. We can also customise upgraded 50 amp service.
