The not so tiny, tiny home foundation. Build the long foundation for your new home with these Tiny House Trailer Plans. Build it at 32′ or the optional 30′ length — just one of many options in the plans. Either way, these blueprints are the start to a solid foundation for your new tiny house.
With 32 feet, tiny is not so tiny, yet these Trailer Plans have a focus specifically for building a Tiny House on Wheels. With strength and stiffness right to the edges for supporting the walls and roof loads, so you can build the trailer to last a lifetime.
Sizes For Tiny House Trailer Plans
Choose the right size for your Tiny Style with any of these plans we offer:
- 8.5′ x 20′ Tiny House Foundation Plans
- 8.5′ x 24′ Tiny Home Foundation Plans
- These Plans > 8.5′ x 30’/32′ Tiny House Trailer Plans
- 10′ x 32′ Wide Tiny Home Foundation Plans
- 12′ x 32′ Extra Wide Tiny Home Foundation Plans
All plans are FULLY ENGINEERED, and designed from the start as a Tiny House mobile foundation. They are not a revised from a utility flat bed or car hauler.
Plans include many features to make your tiny home better. Strength at the perimeter, construction techniques for easier building and a flat floor. Speaking of floors, who doesn’t appreciate vertical headroom (and loft space)? For a low deck (floor) height, these plans integrate floor support into the frame. For homeowners, these plans make a sweet trailer design to build on.
- 8.5′ x 32′ nominal bed size, or use the 30′ option. (Actual frame size of 100″ width allows finish within the legal limit.)
- 15,000+ lb. or 18,000# capacity option. * Always good to have extra capacity.
- Bumper pull trailer with triple axles.
- Optimized low floor allowing maximum vertical space inside.
- Trailer frame is steel, using I-Beams running full length.
- Frame design is specific for supporting load at the perimeter — where the tiny home outside walls set.
- Special frame design makes for easier construction with full length cross members and an integrated house floor.
- Above the deck, you can adapt your house floor plan, insulation and
- Many options are in trailer plans so you can customize it the way you want.
- Full detail blueprints plus illustrated instructions are available now for immediate download.
The trailers at on Mechanical Elements are designed and fully engineered for the jobs intended. Since Tiny House trailer plans have unique needs, we designed these for the exact job. You requested a 30+ foot design, so here it is with a design for minimal deflection in a trailer this long. We like challenges, and in this case you benefit from the work. Read about the engineering in this Case Study at Synthesis.
More About The Design
As we design one-of-a-kind specialty Tiny Home Trailer Plans (for individuals with specific needs), we learn about the importance of certain features. Now, we’ve pulled them together in these plans (and our 24′ version and the shorter 20′ plans) so you get the engineering benefits without the custom trailer plans price!
One frequent desire is a low deck (house floor) to enhance the interior headroom (within legal height limits). That is one great feature of these tiny house trailer plans, and it comes from innovative thinking and careful engineering. Of course it has the option for drop axles, but we did a lot more. The floor integrates into the frame which saves vertical inches, because living tiny does not mean cramped.
Specifically As Tiny House Trailer Plans
Engineering in these plans includes all we learn from other tiny house trailers. Since every house deserves a solid foundation, this frame has a cool construction technique to simplify building and help make everything straight and flat. But it’s even more. We use the great engineering tools like FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to back up our claims of “Stiff” and “Strong”. If you are ready for a new Tiny Home, then this is the way to go.
- Trailer frame is 100″ wide so finish siding can extend beyond the frame 1″ on either side. This hides the frame, while staying within the 8.5′ (102″) legal limit.
- Capacity is 15,600 lbs. (including the trailer), or the heavier option for 18,000 lbs. total capacity.
- Design includes a perimeter ledge 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 Foundation. 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 give maximum head space.
- Integration of sides, walls, and flooring with the frame design allows maximum space for the house.
All this because the design has focus — from the first thought — as Tiny House Trailer Plans.
Start Your Tiny Home Trailer Right
If you are looking for a sturdy Tiny Home mobile foundation, then you’ve come to the right place. Mechanical Elements plans deserve a long look, because of the many engineering features. Build it to last a lifetime – and more. Build it well, then it will serve you well.
Order the plans above, then download them immediately and start construction right away! The solid foundation from these Tiny House Trailer Plans is the first step to a fantastic new home.
Reminder: Trailer construction requires metalworking skills and tools for things like cutting, drilling, accurate fixturing and set-up, as well as welding. Strength, durability, and enjoyment depend on how well the trailer is made. Build it well, then Enjoy the Finished Project !!
