Your First Step For A Tiny Life
Imagine a life without a mortgage, or the need to pack up everything you own when you switch to a new job in a different state. Perhaps you’re building your dream home on a piece of rural property, but you don’t want to live in a motel, tent, or poorly-insulated travel trailer for the next several months.
Picture yourself living in a custom-crafted towable tiny house on wheels built by Trailer Made’s tiny house builders. Unlike RVs or those other types of mobile homes, the custom tiny home is built to be energy-efficient, ergonomic, and aesthetically pleasing, without the flimsy construction materials and “just-off-the-lot” value loss associated with traditional recreational vehicles.
Tiny houses have drawn a lot of attention in the past decade, across many demographics. Our society has outgrown the 30-year mortgage mindset. Careers are fluid, families are often scattered across the continent, and home maintenance has become expensive to contract and, for individuals and families who’d prefer to spend their free time pursuing other interests, something to avoid.
Our tiny house builders often work with millennials and active retirees alike, as they are choosing the “tiny house lifestyle” to give them more options for simplifying their lifestyles and reducing their financial obligations. Tiny house dwellers have the option of living in urban communities built around tiny homes or setting up a mobile homestead against a scenic rural landscape.
How Do I Buy My Trailer?
Shopping for a tiny house isn’t as easy as driving to your local RV dealership and picking out your favorite model. Most tiny homes are either built by the owners or tiny house builders per custom requests, and you can spend hours scouring the internet to find a portable home with the perfect layout, quality, and size. Even then, it’s a good idea to inspect it in person, because you can’t determine construction quality from an internet ad. Our tiny house trailers are constructed specifically to be a base or foundation for tiny homes.
Other than traveling around the country to find the perfect tiny house trailer for sale, we can offer you a quality custom tiny house on wheels that’s right for you.
Three Trailer Types Available
- 12,000 GVWR to 28,000 GVWR
- Tandem and triple axle configurations
- Lengths from 12 to 44 ft in standard or wide configurations
Engineered With Heavy-Duty, Custom Features
Our tiny house builders have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of great tiny house plans. If you build your portable tiny house, according to road-legal RV standards, there’s little limit to how much character and whimsy you can use to customize your new tiny house on wheels. We’ve met lots of people who successfully built their own tiny homes, even when they had no prior carpentry experience!
The most important component of your custom portable home is the foundation upon which it’s built. And, in this case, that foundation is a specifically constructed tiny house trailer base for tiny homes.
Too many DIY tiny house builders think they’ve scored a deal when they salvage a chassis from a conventional travel trailer or find a used flatbed utility trailer on Craigslist. They dive into construction before realizing that legitimate tiny home trailers or sold with a design to safely distribute weight loads specific to tiny house designs and furnishings. At Trailer Made, our custom tiny house builders and manufacturers surpass structural codes and add special touches that our customers love.
