Big Boom of Tiny Homes on Flatbed Trailers
Times are changing and so are the homes people are living in. The current uncertain economy has opened the door for many to adopt a new, more minimalistic, way of thinking. Enter…the tiny house on wheels.
Tiny House Talk
Tiny houses aren’t new. In the past decade, they have become more popular. But there has always been the problem of how to get them to and from their destination. Some creative souls have solved that issue. They are putting the tiny homes ON wheels – flatbed trailers, to be exact.
Tiny homes can be purchased on a lot or they can be built to personalized specifications. They can be hoisted onto the flatbed of a truck, or they can be custom built right onto the truck bed. Most homes come prewired for electricity and contain the plumbing they need as well. When building your own, you’ll need to figure those details in.
Some tiny house dwellers are opting for life on the road, traveling full-time. They generally park in RV camp sites. Others go nowhere at all, finding their sweet spot at a local trailer and camper park or on their own land. Do check your location’s policy on tiny homes before committing to one because they vary from place to place.
If you are into construction, you might save big bucks on building your own tiny house. Or, you can hire someone to do the work for you. Still, some prefer to simply go to the lot and pick a pre-built home. In the event that you already have your truck, you can drive it right off the lot. How easy is that?
Tiny House Toting Trucks
What size Flatbed Truck accommodates a tiny home? Most any will do, depending on how much room you are wanting or how large your already-built truck bed is.
Of course, in order for the house to be truly portable, a Cab and Chassis must accompany the Flatbed. There are many makes and models of Cab and Chassis Flatbed Trucks, both new and used. If you’re strapped for cash, you can generally get a deal on a used Flatbed Truck that will serve your needs for years, even decades, to come. New Flatbed Trucks last even longer.
- The make and model of Flatbed Truck you would purchase to tote your tiny house is entirely a matter of personal choice. There are some great brands out there including Hino and Isuzu are excellent choices because they are powerful and get great fuel economy too.
