This is the dopest RV you’ve ever seen. Built by Wheelhaus in Wilson, Wyoming, and seen here in the form of the Fireside Resort right next door, the “Wedge” cabin is what’s called a recreational park trailer, or RPT. These shelters are considered recreational vehicles and can be towed to campgrounds or RV parks with no additional permitting. In the real world, of course, you’re aren’t going to haul this through the Zion tunnel, but if you’re looking for a turnkey cabin — or place to stay in Jackson — the Wedge is a pretty sweet setup.
Total living space is about 400 square feet. There’s a main living area with 17-foot roof, bedroom that will fit a king, small bathroom with shower, and deck. The exterior is cladded in reclaimed Wyo snow fencing, and there’s a sliding door onto the small deck. The cost of one of these bad boys? It ranges from $65,000 to $85,000, plus $2,500 delivery charge.
Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.
