The most crucial part of a road legal Tiny house is the trailer.
A few common mistakes people make when buying a tiny house trailer is using an old caravan chassis or a flat bed trailer.
A caravan chassis is not up to the job of supporting a wooden structure, as the original caravan would have been designed as a structural part of the chassis. They also don’t tend to come with a very high gross weight limit.
Most flat bed trailers are not suitable for tiny homes as they tend to have a higher bed height and are fitted with leaf springs. Any trailer fitted with leaf springs can be very unstable after a tiny house has been constructed on it especially in corners and at speed, this is due to the amount of travel the suspension has, this will be very dangerous at motorway speeds and has a high risk of tipping over in corners.
Never buy a tiny home that has been built on a second hand trailer or on a chassis with leaf springs if you intend to tow it on the public highway.
When buying a tiny house it should come with a type approved chassis with a certificate. If your home is not built on the correct type of trailer you may have difficulty insuring your tiny house when traveling on the road.
When viewing a tiny house don’t be afraid to get underneath to see the trailer construction and ask to see the approval certificates.
New Type Approved Tiny House Trailers
We have designed a fully galvanised chassis capable of carrying a gross weight of 3500kg.
The chassis has been specially designed just for the construction of tiny homes. They are 2.44m wide meaning by the time the tiny house is built with external cladding and over hang for the roof it takes you up to the max legal trailer width of 2.55m making the most out of all the available space you can have.
They have a rigid bed meaning that they don’t flex and have a 3″ beam which runs the perimeter of the trailer making it easy and structurally sound to bolt a tiny house onto without any need for further reinforcements.
Wheel base is 2.5m wide which gives them a lower centre of gravity.
Our road legal trailer chassis comes with a type approved EU certificate of conformity which means they can be used in the UK and Europe.
Tri axle trailers are recommended for any trailer size over 22ft in length due to the extra stability needed to build a tiny house with a loft.
