Deckover trailers are a variation on bumper pull trailers. The main difference is that with deckover trailers, the deck is raised above the fenders allowing the top surface to be completely flat. While a flat surface may seem appealing for the purpose of building a house, the trade-off is that this reduces the interior height of your home, since there is an overall height limit of 13 ½ feet. The height difference between a standard equipment trailer and a deckover is typically around one foot. Therefore, this trailer type would only be suitable for a house without a sleeping loft. Also be aware that raising the deck height will also add 2 additional steps leading to the house.
