Tiny House Trailers

Tiny houses are small homes that are typically built on tandem axle trailers and offer their owners simplified mobile living. Tiny houses are affordable, energy-efficient, and give the owner the freedom to move and travel at their leisure.

One area you don’t want to neglect when building a tiny house is your trailer. Strength, reliability, and the use of quality components are all critical as they will be the foundation of your new home. We also have a network of over 300 trailer dealers throughout the US and Canada, giving you excellent choices for delivery and service.

We build several units that have become quite popular in the tiny house community to build homes on.

We also have 3D models for each of our trailers that will give you 360-degree views of the top and underside of each trailer.

Most Popular Tiny House Trailers

Probably the most popular trailer used for a tiny house is our 5″ Channel Car Hauler (C5). This trailer is 83″ wide inside the fenders and comes in lengths from 16 to 22 feet. The 5″ channel car hauler is equipped with two 3,500 lb. brake axles for a GVWR of 7,000 lbs. These trailers are quite popular and are in stock throughout many dealers nationwide. Often times these trailers are built with a 2 ft dovetail, you will likely want yours to have a straight deck (no dovetail). We have also seen tiny house builders build their homes on our 6″ Channel Equipment (CC) that has a base rating of 14,000 lbs.
