Tiny House Trailer for UK Self Build – two lengths: 5.4m and 6.0m.
Tiny House Scotland is the exclusive dealer for this Tiny House Trailer for UK Self Build.
These are the exact model that I use for my own NestPod™ and are fully road legal in the UK and EU. My maximum NestPod build length is 6.5m due to both weight constraints and UK towing common-sense (!) and well actually for anything bigger, I would recommend one of my NestHouses instead! For this reason I now only bring in the 5.4m and 6.0m trailers.
The trailers are superbly built in steel and fully galvanised 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 two lengths available: 5.4m and 6.0m. They weigh approx. 600 – 660kg and have a super-low bed height of 505mm with 14″ wheels (185 80 R14) wheels supplied as standard but you could swap them out for 195 50 R13 wheels to get an amazing 440mm if you wanted a lower bed height. The twin axles are rated for 1800 kg 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||7.30m|
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 plus.
Ordering a Tiny House Trailer for UK Self Build
Trailers are built to order by the manufacturer in Europe and so require full payment at point of order. There is normally a 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 per order: this may mean slightly 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 or we can offer a chargeable delivery service and even meet you half way if you are in Cornwall!!.
NB. To collect a trailer – 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 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!!! If you don’t know what you are doing then don’t take the risk – use a professional.
