What should I consider when choosing a trailer size?

When deciding on the length of your trailer there are two things you should consider. First, what is the minimum size house that you would be comfortable and happy in, and second, how often do you plan to move your house?

In most places, if you wish to travel without obtaining a permit, your vehicle can be no larger than 8.5 feet wide and 13.5 feet tall. Since your tiny house design will likely be sized to (or close to) those limits, changing the length becomes the only way to change the square footage (i.e. you can’t add a second floor). So you will need to pick a tiny house design, and thus a length, that suits your needs.

While you may be inclined to just pick the largest size to get the most square footage, you will also need to consider movability. As your trailer size increases, so too does the challenge of moving it. A larger trailer takes a larger tow vehicle and is generally more difficult to maneuver. How often you plan to move your house and where you plan to park it may affect the size that’s right for you.

Our most popular trailer sizes are the 20 and 24 foot models. They provide a good mix of size and ease of mobility.

The sizes list are the deck lengths and do not include the length of the tongue (approximately 4 additional feet). Custom lengths, between 10 feet and 32 feet are also available.
