Tiny Home Trailers and Sub-floor Frame
With over 250 tiny home trailers built over the last five years, 20 years building boat and commercial trailers, volume purchasing discounts and efficient in-house production you can be sure to get top quality and the lowest cost. And we can help guide you through the practical and legal issues you will need to take into account when designing and building your tiny home.
Normally we build a strong trailer chassis (the legal part) which carries the equalising suspension, brakes, lights, coupler etc. Then we build a sub-floor frame in box section steel that you can screw your flooring ply directly to. This saves materials, time, and height, and it makes it easy to weld-on receptor points for stabiliser jacks and for securing to the underlying chassis with our ‘patent’ self-locating post system.
If you prefer we can supply and fit the insulation & plywood too, or even supply with a steel wall and roof structure frame ready for you to fit the electric wiring and plumbing etc.
Thus, our price-list is in two parts; one for the chassis and one for the sub-floor frame if required:
|Chassis Deck Length||No. of Axles||Build type||Brake type||Axles with brakes||Max GVM Allowed, Kg||Price Excl GST|
*GVM means ‘Gross Vehicle Mass’ ie the total weight of the trailer and its load
FOR INTERMEDIATE SIZES, TAKE THE PRICE OF THE NEXT SIZE UP
Prices include equalising suspension, LED lights, galv Jockey wheel, 8-ply 190R5013C tyres, brakes as specified, Rego and WOF, and our standard 10 yr structural warranty.
Construction is with ‘pre-galvanised’ box steel, with weld damaged areas treated to two coats of ‘cold-galv’. Hot dip galvanising is available at extra cost, if needed. We recommend regular maintenance to remove any sign of rust by wire brushing followed by two coats of ‘cold-galv 93% Zinc)
Sub-floor frames: Note these are designed to be removable from the trailer along with the home above so become part of the ‘load’ on the trailer. They act as ‘joists’, not bearers; the trailer chassis is effectively the ‘bearers’. Your home must be properly braced as per the building code, so that the home keeps the flooring platform flat, not the platform keeping the home rigid. All prices exclude GST
|Subfloor length||2+ to 2.7m wide(Sub-frame only)||Sub-frame + ply + Insulation fitted||2.7+ to 3.1m wide(Sub-frame only)||With ply floor + Insulation fitted|

In the eyes of the law
Do you know that if you put your tiny home on a truly road-worthy trailer, ie registered and warranted, and don’t connect it permanently to services such as sewage, power etc it can be treated as a ‘motor vehicle’ not a house? As such you won’t need a building permit or resource consent etc any more than a caravan does. If in doubt, we recommend you check your local council regarding the current applicable regulations, as these can change.
The typical build
The unit pictured is suited to a Tiny Home 7m long & 2.5m-3.1m wide and weighing up to about 2.0 tonnes. You can fix the flooring directly to the steel frame. If heavier than 2 tonnes we can add ‘break-away’ brakes if you want to drive it on public roads. Its priced from $6590 including GST, depending on the final specification. We can build in almost any feature you can think of, including corner jacks, telescopic drawbars, electric/hydraulic brakes, alloy wheels, etc.
Always included are dura-galv. box steel construction, dual axles, over-ride brakes, commercial grade 8 ply tyres, jockey wheels, road legal LED lights with standard NZ 50mm or 1-7/8″ couplers, plus Rego & WOF ready to drive away.
