Travel Trailers


Travel trailers can be a great alternative to a tiny house on wheels, especially if you want to travel and move around often.


Manufactured trailers are usually lighter in weight so they can oftentimes be easier to tow thanks in part also to their lower height (there are usually no sleeping lofts).


Travel trailers are usually built with a one level design so they’re not usually built as tall.


Some are compact and light enough to be towed with a small car, and there are other travel trailers that seem to have more space than many small apartments.


In this section, you’ll dive into the world of travel trailers. We also love to show you trailers that have been customized into tiny homes.


Travel trailers with customized interiors are homier and they don’t attract as much attention as tiny houses on wheels do.


On top of that, they cost less.


Especially if you buy used.


This can leave you with enough extra money in your budget to do some modifications and customizations to your trailer.


The downfall is that you will likely not have very good insulation versus a custom-built tiny home on wheels…


So please take that into consideration if you need to make it through any extreme climate conditions (you may need to reinsulate your travel trailer).


Anyway, please explore and enjoy the world of travel trailers and trailer-to-tiny-house conversions that we’ve been lucky enough to feature here. 🙂
