It's a mobile home that looks like a tool
shed. They don't mention 2 things, water
and septic. What takes care of those small
items. I guarantee this would not be allowed
in my township. No mobile homes, no living
in RV's. This falls under one of those categories.
Waste disposal is a huge issue, it has to be
exactly like an RV. And all the water has
to be trucked in. It looks to be about the
size of a large walk in closet, 8' by 15'.
No thanks.

Water and waste disposal laws are major limiting factors Some cities have tried to establish that it is illegal to live without a water hook up. Some land in California had an office building constructed on it because local laws allow office buildings not to have water hookups.

Their big selling point is, why, you can plop
these down anywhere. No, you cannot. There
are few places outside of areas where nobody
lives that don't have rules about mobile homes,
which this most certainly is. Plus, it's tiny, makes
me nervous just looking at it. It's smaller than
a 1 stall garage.

It's mobile, but it must be some sort of plasticized material. It's 3d printed. Rubbermaid-like home?

Tons of people live in RV parks in Florida. Its a huge business down here. Water and waste not any issue. Most good RV parks have the triple hookup. Electric, water and waste disposable sewer line at each individual site. Most also have a cable tv hookup. I have vacationed at these really nice RV parks. One I stayed at had a 9 hole golf course. Another on Sanibel Island had a huge parrot collection.
Sometimes I boondock at festivals, no hookup. No biggie. RV holds 26 gallons of water. Black water tank just needs to be emptied periodically depending on how many use it. Can load it in the car and empty at disposable site that every campground has.

8' by 15' is 120 square feet. The module is actually 387.5 Square feet which is more like a large hotel room instead of a closet.

No way is this thing 13 by 30! My barn is 30'
long, I know what 30' looks like. No way is
it 13' wide. 10 by 20 at the most.

Just the fact that its mobile will keep you
from plopping it anywhere you like.
In my twp and those around me, you can't
even put up a modular home, let alone
one that's mobile. A vast number of
places in the US are like that, cuts down
property values to let these mobile
dumps into a neighborhood.

Seriously, does this look 30' long?

A standard solar panel is 39" and I am not aware of any other width. The roof has 9 panels so 9 X 39" = 29.25 ft. Not quite 30ft EB but close.
