I thought I’d start a new series of posts called tiny house concerns.
In it we’ll go over questions and concerns that readers from Tiny House Talk have sent in.
Then in the comments, we’ll all discuss possible solutions and swap ideas. So here’s this week’s question from Pamela.
A couple of things I’ve never seen anyone address regarding the tiny houses on trailers is, what about the long term decomposing of the tires? Do folks jack the house up a bit to alleviate pressure on the tires, remove them, or do they pick the house up and take it to the local gas station now and then to fill them up? Also what happens if they leave the trailer to rest on the tires and one gets a flat or loses air? And finally, have you heard of anyone building a small house on a trailer with the intent of being able to remove it from the trailer once they get to a more permanent spot?
If you have any ideas, tips, or suggestions on protecting trailer tires from decomposing, please share them in the comments below. Thank you!
