For many, the choice to live in a tiny house built on a mobile trailer is the beginning of an exciting adventure. Many choose to live this way to enjoy more freedom, have less “stuff” and experience life in a more mindful way.
Why Live in a Mobile House?
There are many advantages to living in a tiny house on wheels (THOW), but the biggest one is probably the ability to travel with your home. If you have a truck or SUV, you can tow your tiny home around the country sightseeing, visiting family and friends or living in different places for extended periods of time. When your job moves you, you can take your home with you.
Just think how great it would be to be able to sleep in your own bed with your own belongings after a long day of travel! No hotels, no setting up a campsite, just crawling into bed after a day on the road exploring.
There are many tiny home communities around the country where you can park and stay, check them out here.
Is it an RV or a house?
Did you know that Seattle Tiny Homes is one of a few tiny house manufacturers that are RV certified? This means our tiny houses on wheels are built to exacting standards, and they are designed to be 100% road legal.
But if you are the do-it-yourself type, how do you build a tiny house on wheels? You start with the trailer, and it’s important to choose the right foundation for your tiny house. After you decide what design you want, you’ll need to get a customized trailer that will fit your tiny house needs. With a Seattle Tiny Homes trailer, your trailer will be personalized with just the right length and axle placement – giving you the ideal weight distribution for your tiny house (which makes towing safer and easier).
Additional Benefits of a Seattle Tiny Homes Trailer
- A Foundation for Safety and Stability
Our heavy-duty trailers are engineered for one thing – tiny homes. Due to our special design, your home will sit low inside the framework, giving you optimum safety and stability. High-grade steel maximizes strength while minimizing weight.
- Pre-Installed Floor Makes Your Job Easier
Your trailer comes with a pre-installed and insulated sub-floor that takes full advantage our unique design and is topped with high-grade plywood. This allows you to maximize your trailer’s extra space- and it’s a great head start on your build.
- Resist Moisture
A solid metal floor can attract moisture, leading to mold and rust. That’s why we use an integrated steel framework coupled with a special moisture/rodent barrier and marine grade plywood for additional protection.
- More Space
Because of its special engineering, you can build over the wheel wells of your trailer. This gives you 12-18 inches of extra width. Because the floor is dropped inside the trailer frame, you gain up to six inches of headroom. You will definitely notice the extra space!
- Much More!
Your trailer comes with a warranty, an adjustable coupler, sidewinding jack and much more! Learn more about our custom trailers here.
Combining precision, extra space, and a two-year warranty, we believe a Seattle Tiny Homes trailer is truly the best foundation for a DIY tiny home of your dreams. Of course, if you want us to build your entire tiny house, we can do that too.

I found it interesting when you said that the advantages living in a tiny house on wheels are the ability to travel with your home. My husband and I are planning to travel next year, and I think the idea of having a mobile home is great. I will discuss this with my husband and see if we could consider this.
We would love to help you plan one! Andrea, email us anytime!
