A purpose-designed Tiny House Trailer in three lengths: 5.4m, 6.0m, 6.6m.
Tiny House Scotland is the exclusive UK dealer for this Tiny House Trailer for UK Self Build.
I have sourced them from Holland because of the lack of anything comparable in the UK market. They are the exact model that I use for my own NestPod™ and are fully road legal in the UK.
The trailers are superbly built galvanised steel with compliant inertia brake systems, LED lighting and EU Certificate of Conformity. The skeleton construction maximises the payload within the 3500kg legal maximum for mechanically braked trailers.
These trailers are the maximum legal width at 2.55m over the wheel arches, with a trailer bed size of 2.44m x Length and there are three lengths available: 5.4m, 6.0m, 6.6m. They weigh approx. 590 – 660kg and have a super low bed height of 440mm with 195 50 R13 wheels or 505mm with 185 80 R14 wheels – supplied as standard with 14″ wheels but you can swap them out if you want a lower bed height. The twin axles are rated for 1800kg each and can be adjusted for optimum nose weight balance.
Note that you will have to build around the raised wheel arches but personally I find this more than compensated for by the low bed height: clear flatbeds usually have 10 or 12 inch wheels to keep the height down but then suffer with low ground clearance and bone shaking travel at the slightest bump or pothole!
|Model||Trailer Bed Size||Load Capacity Approx.||Total Length|
|5.4m||2.44 x 5.40m||2960kg||7.10m|
|6.0m||2.44 x 6.00m||2930kg||7.70m|
|6.6m||2.44 x 6.60m||2900kg||8.30m|
Notes: (a) load capacity is approximate and will vary depending on the wheels used (b) reflects the balance of the 3500kg legal limit only – ie. this is not the limit of their engineered capacity which is around 4500kg.
Ordering a Tiny House Trailer for UK Self Build
Trailers are built to order by the manufacturer in Holland so require full payment at point of order. There is normally a 4-5 week lead time; in addition to this, in order to keep our import costs down, orders will be consolidated so that there must be a minimum of two trailers for collection from Holland at any one time: this may mean longer lead times. You will then need to collect your trailer from Tiny House Scotland at Linlithgow, just West of Edinburgh – we are minutes from the National motorway network.
NB. For collection – please ensure your vehicle is rated to tow at least 650kg and has a 13 pin lighting connection, also be aware that these trailers are very long and wide and will be very daunting for a novice to tow – so if possible ensure you use someone with towing experience.
Trailers are sold on a supply-only basis; Tiny House Scotland accepts no responsibility for advising self builders on building methods or the legality of what they subsequently build on the trailer. You must do your own research!!!
