If you’re interested in building a tiny home on wheels, you’re going to need to purchase (or build) a trailer. This trailer serves as your tiny home’s foundation. And just as you wouldn’t skimp on the foundation for a normal house, you want to make sure that your tiny house rests on solid footing.
Many people use large utility trailers in their tiny home builds. In this video, Dan Louche of Tiny Home Builders explains why it might be a better idea to select a trailer purpose-built for a tiny house.
I like how he added the 7-pin connector with electric brakes. A tiny house built on a trailer usually weighs more than a similarly sized RV, and you want the added protection when transporting it.
The all-steel construction is a huge improvement over a wood-paneled utility trailer, too. Dan’s company makes trailers from 12′ (tandem 5,200 lbs axles) all the way up to 28′ (triple 7,000 lbs axles). You can learn more about these custom-built mobile home trailers on his website.
