If you are planning on taking your tiny house on the road, you are going to have to tow it yourself or get someone to do it for you. Most folks choose to buy or rent the truck and tow it themselves. There is much to know about checking out the trailer before you tow it and how to go about getting it to its final destination. And that is all before you build a house on it. Not to worry. Dan Louche has put together another amazing set of tips, tricks and instructions to help make your first towing experience a pleasant one with his Tiny House Towing Guide.
We hear this a lot: “I need it as wide as we can go.” But do you really? What is your motivation behind that? Are you even aware of the legal road limits? Here are some considerations when choosing your tiny house trailer width.
It is one of the biggest concerns on every new tiny home builder’s mind: How much room am I going to have in that loft? We are asked all the time, “What is the highest that I can go?” There are set limitations for sure, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to sneak out as much headroom as possible. Here is what you need to know to make the most of your tiny house height.
Every time we attend an event with one of our tiny houses, we are constantly asked about the height. Our house is 13’5” high, just one inch below the legal limit set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The response is normally, “WOW! How do you drive with that in tow?” Here are some of the things to think about when it comes to tiny house height.
One of the more common questions that we are asked is, “How do you keep your tiny home secure?” Well, let’s discuss secure for a moment. Given enough time and remote enough location, any tiny house out there can be stolen. But there are precautions that you can take and tiny house security systems that you can install. Here is how to make it as tough as possible for thieves to steal your home and your possessions and make it as easy as possible to recover your home should they succeed.
Something exciting is about to happen! You are searching for the most important feature of your Tiny House to be. The cornerstone. The tiny house trailer. What should you be looking for in a trailer that is about to carry a house?
