Top 5 Tiny House Trailers

Updated: Oct 17, 2019

Selecting the right trailer for your tiny house is no mean feat. It can be considered in terms of laying the footings of a static building; you wouldn’t start construction without a solid foundation. As such, your tiny house trailer should be viewed as a mobile footing for your home, providing a sturdy base wherever you go.


Here are five examples of trailers which can be purchased wherever you are in the world to get you and your home rolling:


1) Vlemmix TH600 – European & UK Trailer

Vlemmix tiny house trailers are available in the UK via NaviHo; a platform which provides luxury mobile homes on wheels and the appropriate trailers to support them. While Vlemmix trailers are built in the Netherlands, as per the standard UK regulations the TH600 has LED lights installed on the front and side of the trailer, and has the option to alter the position of its two axles from their standard location for optimum nose-weight balance. The trailer is built using galvanised steel and is fully road legal in the UK and EU, meaning you can get your home moving right away! Handy additional features include four support legs and a spare wheel and wheel holder.

All of these trailers would provide a secure home for your tiny home, whether you’re travelling the golden coast or staying put to save your way up the property ladder. However, UK-based enthusiasts are best advised to stick to European and UK-based brands for the path of least resistance when getting hold of a tiny house trailer.
