Tiny Homes At River Run Colorado Tiny Home Community
Tiny Homes At River Run is a beautiful, fully-planned and managed tiny home community in Colorado. It is conveniently located just off I-70 at Silt Exit 97, only a two-minute drive from the picturesque “old west” town of Silt, 10 minutes from the thriving community of Rifle and 20 minutes from Glenwood Springs — the gateway to Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley — with its many tourist attractions, restaurants and excellent medical center.
Sprout Tiny Homes LLC
The homes at River Run will be factory-built by Sprout Tiny Homes, LLC, of Pueblo, Colorado, to the design and specifications developed by RRC. RRC will facilitate the placement of home purchase orders with this Colorado-based manufacturer and will be responsible for inspecting the home and certifying its proper delivery to the River Run home site. The homes will carry a two-year warranty from the manufacturer.
Homes For Sale Begin At $92,000
The cost of the home starts at $92,000 and the homeowner will be required to lease the land. RRC will consider renting home sites to owners of other tiny homes on a case by case basis.
Early Occupancy Opportunity
River Run is now accepting deposits. The first 13 people to complete the deposit process will be assigned priority positions for the lease of a Site in the South Section in the order that their deposits are received – Lot One for the first Depositor, Lot Two for the second Depositor, and so on, and will be assigned a corresponding priority delivery/purchase position for a Home.
River Run Tiny Community Approved By Silt Town Board Dec 10th, 2018
The Silt Board of Trustees has approved a rezoning request from Camp Colorado River, owner of the Silt KOA campground, to transform unused adjacent land into a 70-unit tiny home community.
As partner Alan Danson explains, the project is still in very early stages. But, he added how excited the Silt town board was of the project and said the next step will be to go before the Silt Planning and Zoning Commission for approval on the actual design of the homes.Layman said the board has been interested in tiny homes. At its Dec. 10 meeting, the Silt board voted unanimously in favor of the property rezone, moving the project to the design and pre-marketing phase.
River Run Colorado, LLC (RRC) will develop the River Run residential community (“River Run”) adjacent to the associated Glenwood Springs West/Colorado River KOA Holiday (the “KOA”) located in the Town of Silt, Garfield County, Colorado.
Vision For River Run
River Run will consist of 70 generously-sized (approximately 2,500 square feet), well-spaced and attractively landscaped home sites on 6-acres adjacent to the KOA, where the residents can savor the benefits of tiny home living. Residents will have easy access to 3,000 feet of frontage along the Colorado River, with all of the fishing and other water-related activities that implies. All the attractively landscaped sites will have a concrete patio, fire pit and parking for two cars. Residents will enjoy inspiring views of the surrounding Roan Plateau, Mamm Peaks and Battlement Mesa from their home decks, and the year-round outdoor wonderland that is the Colorado Western slope will be within easy driving distance.
River Run will offer amenities that include attractive landscaping, tree-shaded open-space, a community garden and a dog park. Community Members will be able to access the Colorado River as well as the KOA boat ramp and convenience store.
Model Built By Sprout Tiny Homes
The model home that was built to CCR’s high standards, and that includes many features not common in tiny homes, can be seen on weekends, from 10am to 2pm.
Last week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed into law a bill that eliminates the Department of Consumer and Business Services from regulating RVs.
Oregon Duplicative Compliance Seal Eliminated
With the enactment of this new law, the need to attach an additional and duplicative Oregon insignia of compliance or seal to RVs is eliminated and Oregon joins the vast majority of states which do not regulate the manufacturing of RVs.
Removes Requirement For PMRV Manufacturers To Use Licensed Plumbers And Electricians
Additionally, the new law removes the requirement for PMRV manufacturers in the state of Oregon to use licensed plumbers and licensed electricians to make installations and repairs. The bill, OR SB 410, takes effect January 1, 2020.
The changes the new law implements are common sense and help promote not only the national RV industry, but also the Oregon RV industry which contributed $4.3 billion in economic impact and supported almost 23,000 jobs in the state of Oregon.
Bill HB2333 Defines RVs And PMRVs As Vehicles
In addition to SB 410, another bill, OR HB 2333, was passed unopposed by the Oregon state legislature. This bill defines RVs and PMRVs as vehicles under the regulation of the Oregon Department of Transportation. HB 2333 is awaiting signature from Governor Brown and we expect this to happen in the coming days or weeks.
Eliminates Department of Consumer and Business Services regulation of recreational vehicle construction.
Eliminates general definition of recreational vehicle for purposes of manufactured structure construction statutes. Creates substitute definition of recreational vehicle for use in certain statutes outside manufactured structure construction statutes. Eliminates department regulation of recreational structure construction. Eliminates department regulation of construction and installation of yurts on campgrounds for use as transitional housing. Revises requirements for prefabricated structures that cease to qualify for exclusion from state building code regulations. Preserves, for land use law purposes, existing definitions of shared terms affected by state building code exclusions. Expands types of structures intended for out-of-state delivery exempted from plan review, inspection, electrical, plumbing or other state building code requirements.
Allows option to obtain title, but not registration, from Department of Transportation for recreational vehicle qualifying as park model recreational vehicle and meeting other criteria.
Provides that recreational vehicle having title issued by Department of Transportation does not qualify as structure.
Requires owner to surrender Department of Transportation title for recreational vehicle if converting recreational vehicle to use as structure.
Makes recreational vehicle converted to use as structure subject to state building code.

Requires that information state for each listed system whether items or components comprising system are covered by warranty and, if so, extent and length of warranty. Removes recreational vehicle construction from regulation by Department of Consumer and Business Services. Changes definition of “recreational vehicle.”
Building Codes Division rule clarifies titling of recreational park trailers (“tiny houses on wheels”)June 06, 2018
SALEM – The Oregon Building Codes Division (BCD), in cooperation with Oregon Driver & Motor Vehicle Services (DMV), filed an administrative rule June 1, 2018, to help provide a mechanism for recreational park trailer (tiny houses on wheels) manufacturers to obtain an ownership document from DMV.
The new rule defines a “recreational park trailer” as:
• A single living unit that is primarily designed and completed on a single chassis, mounted on wheels, to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or other seasonal use;
Is certified by the manufacturer as complying with a nationally recognized standard for the construction of recreational vehicles; and
• Has a gross trailer area not exceeding 400 square feet in the setup mode.
“We believe this rule will help provide clarity for manufacturers and allow an unfettered path to titling these types of recreational vehicles in Oregon,” said Mark Long, Building Codes Division administrator.
BCD filed the rule change after learning its attempt to deregulate this important emerging industry inadvertently affected the eligibility for tiny houses on wheels to apply for a vehicle title.
Under the new rule, DMV will be able to issue a title for recreational park trailers and file the ownership information in its records. Recreational park trailers may be moved in the following ways:
Shipping by a commercial moving company
• Vehicle trip permit from DMV –http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/pages/vehicle/trippermit.aspx
DMV is currently informing staff at its 60 field offices and headquarters processing center to start accepting title applications for recreational park trailers.
