I was just wondering if there are any tiny house trailers that are designed to a lifetime mileage specification?
Maybe designed for 10,000 lbs load for a maximum of 5000 miles over their lifetime?
Or set up a chart that might show what can be done between 1000 miles and 100,000 miles, and the consumer can judge if that extra expense is worth it.
Of course, the rigidity of the final tiny house adds a substantial amount of strength to the final chassis so those calculations will have to be taken into account as well.
That seems to be the way that RV and mobile home chassis are built- it would be a great idea to apply the same concepts to a tiny house build.
I don’t know if you’ve seen tiny house trailer designs that are certified by licensed mechanical engineers. I’m a Mechanical Engineering Tech so that’s why I asked.
This might be a great way to show people just WHAT can be done. You can consider posting this on the blog if you want.
