Road Legal Tiny Homes
The most crucial part when building a road legal Tiny home is making sure the chassis is up to the job.
A few common mistakes people make when buying a chassis for their tiny home 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 on corners and at speed 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 on corners.
Never buy a tiny home that has been built on a second hand trailer or is on a chassis with leaf springs if you intend to tow it on the road.
When buying a tiny home it should come with a type approved chassis with a certificate. If your tiny home is not built on the correct type of trailer you may have difficulty insuring your tiny home when traveling on the road.
When vewing a tiny home don’t be afraid to get underneath to see the trailer construction and ask to see the approval certificates.
New Type approved Tiny home trailers
We have designed a fully galvanised chassis capable of carrying a gross weight of 3500kg.
The chassis has been specially designed for the construction of tiny homes, They are 2.44m wide meaning by the time the tiny house is built with external cladding and a 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.
They have a rigid bed meaning that they don’t flex and have a 3inch beam which runs the perimeter of the trailer making it easy and structurally sound to bolt a tiny house onto with out any need for further reinforcements.
Wheel base is 2.5m wide which gives them a lower centre of gravity.
Road legal trailers come with a type approved EU certificate of conformity which means they can be used in the UK and Europe.
Tri axle trailers recommended for any trailer size over 22ft in length due to there extra stability.
