Customisable

 

Customise your Sizes - Length and Width

The majority of the NZ market wants three widths and different lengths. We have you covered with widths of 2.4m 2.7m and 3m. Lengths range from 4.8m to 10.8m at 0.6m intervals. Intervals of 0.6m are designed around standard building materials. For example most sheet products are 1.2m meaning you will have less waste and save time cutting, thus reducing your costs. 

This tiny house trailer is flexible or adjustable in terms of length and width
Trailer wheel dolly options. Suspension, fixed axle or direct fix.

Choose your Options - Running Gear

We use a removable dolly that carries the wheel assembly and mudguards in two options. Plus offer a less flexible, less expensive direct fix option. We also use a triple axle on the Plus model.

Our 'Smart Trailer' comes in four versions, Road, Site, Plus and Simple. Each version is adaptable and can be customised to your needs through a variety of accessories. Don't need lifting jacks? So don't select them. Want a trailer with no suspension or brakes? Choose the accessories you want here. 

 


Features

 

Detachable Trailer

Do you want to be able to remove the house from the trailer? The wheel dolly and draw bar assembly simply unbolt from the trailer chassis. This gives you the ability to obtain a warrant of fitness (WOF) without having to take your tiny house to the testing station, it also makes it easy to carry out maintenance simply. An added bonus - you could use this trailer to pick up building materials while the house is suspended during build or completion.

Tiny house trailer has a removible or split deck/wheel dolly meaning you can get a WOF with ease or carry out maintenance.

Draw Bar Mounts Both Ends

Trying to get your mobile tiny house into a tricky position? We’ve got you sorted with a draw bar that can mount either end of the trailer chassis/deck.

Low Floor Height

We recess the low profile wheels into the sub-floor to ensure the final height of the floor is as low as possible. This maximises the height of the house but still achieves the minimum 1.3 floor R value. The easy to build on finished flat deck sits at approx 600mm from the ground to the top of the mudguards. One exception is the mud guards for the Plus trailer which are level with top of the deck.

Lightweight

Our trailers utilise ‘smart design’ to ensure strength whilst being lightweight compared to others on the market. For example our Smart Trailer Road 2.4 x 7.2 weighs only 650kg approx. leaving you with that bit of extra weight for the rest of your house.

Adjustable Wheel Dolly

Not sure where the centre of gravity is on your house? Or want to have the ability to free style your build as you go and not worry about axle placement? We have the solution with a wheel dolly that is adjustable forward and back to ensure you have the correct weight on the vehicle tow bar for safe towing.

Simple House Mounting

Mounting the floor and walls is simple with parameter mounting holes. Bolts with nuts will sandwich the trailer steel, sub-floor and wall bottom plate to form a very strong connection.

Thermal Sub-floor

You know what it's like to touch steel on a cold day, so why would you build your floor directly on it? Steel conducts approx 350 times better than pine timber meaning the cold will travel straight up and into your home if building directly on steel. We recommend the use of timber and insulation to keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer, this also reduces your energy bills.

Direct fixing floor to steel trailer deck is not a great idea
 

Lifting and Tie Down Accessories 

  • The lifting mount is used to attach the lifting jack or the lifting arm. Comes standard on all models except the Road trailer which can be purchased as an accessory.

  • The lifting jacks are used to lift the house in four places enabling you to be able to remove or adjust the dolly and draw bar assembly. Levels your build platform in minutes to a good, even working height.

  • The tie down eyes are used to secure the house to the ground for wind, flooding and security reasons or truck deck with something like a strap.

  • The lifting arms are used to lift the house onto a truck or site.

Quality Assurance

 

Strength

We treat trailers as house foundations and you only get one shot at getting it right. We build trailers strong but without unnecessary weight. Our trailer has been analysed by an independent structural engineer and FEA analysis (strength testing) so you know it's not going to break.

Quality  

We build things to last. We use NZ sourced steel and hot dip galvanise, giving it the best possible protection to last. Let's face it who wants to do trailer repairs with a house on top? Welding and fabrication is done by an experienced certified craftsman.

Trailer Components

We have teamed up with who we feel are the leading trailer suppliers in NZ Trailequip and Treadway. They supply only quality products and are always innovating and improving.
