If you’re thinking about living in a tiny house on wheels but are worried about high winds, you’re in the right place.
You might be worried, “what if my tiny house flips over?!”
And that’s a totally legitimate concern, right?
The good news is that it’s certainly possible to protect your tiny home on a trailer from strong gusty winds inexpensively by using tie-downs, anchors, and anchor points. With the information and video below, you’ll see how.
Protecting Your Tiny House on Wheels from High Winds
What You Might Need:
- Anchors, Rings, Hitch Clips, or Tie Down Anchors professionally secured and bolted onto the corners of your tiny house (if you can, design for this)
- Heavy duty tie-down straps with add’l ratchet straps
- Anchor point (in this case, a nearby tree is used as an anchor point so you can use a winch strap made for trees to secure) but you can also set up your own anchor points if possible (consult a professional)
