10-foot wide tiny houses on wheels are growing in popularity. The extra 2-feet in width really open up the interior space – and for those that don’t need to move their houses often, the larger size isn’t a problem.
When trailers are over 8.5 feet, an oversize load permit is needed. Permits for towing oversized trailers that are under 10-feet wide are easy to get and to roads you’re allowed to travel on are not as limited as larger oversized loads. A 10-foot wide tiny house on wheels fits into a sweet spot for oversize towing and give you the extra space for living.
I recently published new tiny house plans, the Carrack 1042 (~10′ x 42′). I’ll soon be publishing it’s little brother, the Carrack 836 (~8.5′ x 36′). Pictured here are the two designs shown side by side. These are both large tiny homes – far bigger than Jay Shafer’ 8×16 tiny house that helped launch the Tiny House Movement.
The house plans for the Carrack 1042 are available now and cost only $39. The Carrack 836 will be available later this week.
What do you think? Should tiny houses remain tiny, or are these larger homes more usable? Tell us below in the comments.
