Build Tiny – a tiny house builder in New Zealand – is using a purpose-built tiny house trailer manufactured by Bay Engineering Solutions to offer their customers tiny houses that detach from their trailers.
The benefits are multiple:
- House is considered a load on a trailer – not a trailer itself, simplifying the registration and insurance because it would fit in the current norm.
- Trailer can be removed for aesthetics, inspection, or maintenance.
- House can be reversed to face away or toward the trailer tongue – useful for positioning a house in a tight space.
- The trailer and house are made from lightweight galvanized steel making them easy to tow with a wider range of vehicles.
- House could be more easily sited on a permanent foundation using the standard shipping container locks.
- The low profile wheels allow the house to have a flat bottom with no fender bump-outs in the floor and wall.
