Description

Description

Building a new Tiny Home on Wheels?  You will definitely need a sturdy foundation (trailer) under it.  These plans show you how to build a 24 foot length Tiny Home Trailer, designed specifically to meet the needs of Tiny Homes.  Just add your custom house plans, and build it to last a lifetime.

Actual deck size is 100″ wide and 24′ length.  This size allows the house siding to cascade over the frame for a weather tight connection.  The design also includes a floor that integrates into the trailer frame which lowers the deck and gives more head room or loft room.  Best of all, the plans are fully engineered for strength (right to the perimeter for the house walls) and stiffness, so you can build with confidence.

The trailers available on Mechanical Elements are all designed and fully engineered for the jobs intended.  Since a Tiny Home trailer has some very different needs compared to Utility trailers, Car haulers, and others, we designed it for the exact job.  One of the big things is load permanence.  We don’t usually load a utility trailer just once over its lifetime, nor mount a car permanently on a car hauler.  Furthermore, we don’t really care if there is a little deflection of a utility trailer.  On the other hand, we care a lot if a wall cracks in our Tiny Home.  That makes stiffness in the Tiny Home Foundation a lot more important!

Tiny Home Trailer Plan Sizes

Choose the Trailer size to meet your Tiny Style with any of these plans we offer:

Of course, all of these plans are FULLY ENGINEERED, and designed specifically for building a Tiny House.  They are not a redesign from some other flat bed.

So that’s what we do.  We have designed several one-of-a-kind specialty Tiny Home Trailer Foundations (for individuals with specific needs).   And, we’ve learned a lot about the importance of some of the features.  Now, we’ve pulled them all together in these plans so you get the benefit without the custom trailer plans price!

Finite Element Analysis on the Tiny Home Trailer FrameThe engineering in these plans is much more than cut and paste from other tiny home trailers.  The frame is a solid foundation for your new house, including a cool construction technique to simplify building and help with making everything straight and flat.  But it’s more than that, we also use engineering tools like FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to back up our claims of “Stiff” and “Strong”.  It’s better than other flatbed trailers, so if you are ready for a new Tiny Home, this is definitely the way to go.

  • The trailer frame is 100″ wide so siding and edging can extend beyond the frame 1″ on either side.  This hides the frame, while staying within the 8.5′ (102″) legal limit.
  • Max capacity is 14,000 lbs. (including the trailer).  Option for 12,000 lbs. total capacity.
  • Design includes a perimeter framing to support the walls.  Anchoring is flexible to fit your unique floor plan and make building both easy and robust.
  • Material selections are for strength and stiffness unique to a Tiny Home Trailer.  I-Beams for the main loads; Rectangular Tube for crossmembers to resist frame twist;  The floor and exterior walls bolt directly to the frame.
  • The house floor integrates down into the trailer frame to lower the floor and maximize head space.
  • The frame perimeter is built strong to support the weight of the walls – including the loads the walls hold like the roof, the loft, snow load, etc..
  • The integration of sides, walls, and flooring with the frame design allows maximum space for the house, both horizontally and vertically.

All this because the trailer design has focus — from the first pencil stroke — as a Tiny Home Foundation.
