A tiny house trailer from Fred is much more than just a trailer.
  • A clever trailer design where underfloor & draw bar storage are built in.
  • Where underfloor insulation is not an afterthought, but is anticipated and designed in to every trailer and every framing plan we sell.
  • Easy connection points between your tiny house and trailer. No drilling of holes in your brand new trailer looking for a way to attach the house and trailer.
  • We use Duragal steel and then paint all the welds.  This method gives all the advantage of galvanizing, without the risks of hot dip galvanizing.  If you require a different finish please let us know, we’re glad to discuss your needs.
  • Fred looks after you with little extras like a spare tyre and pre-wiring for outline marker lights as standard inclusions on every trailer we sell.
  • And Fred looks after you with the big important things too like a VASS Engineer reviewed trailer design; and super strong attachment points & critical welds to make it a strong, reliable, roadworthy base for your tiny house.  In other words: Australia’s best built tiny house trailers.
  • A Framing Plan to build the walls of your tiny house.  A plan that is tailor-made to fit hand in glove with your trailer, creating the strongest attachment between tiny house and trailer available anywhere. Guaranteed.
  • A materials list and cutting list, so you know just what to buy to frame your tiny house and what lengths to cut them.  Saves you time & money.
  • And there’s more… with every trailer purchase you get 3 hours of expert advice & consultation time with Fred.   Why?  Because, you’re bound to have a few questions and Fred’s here to help.

A lot of care and attention has gone into Fred’s trailer and tiny house design. Built from the ground up to ‘caravan’ standards, it is clear that Fred’s design and materials have been well researched.  Fred knows what he’s talking about and provides the perfect atmosphere for relaxed, open, honest and free flowing sharing of thoughts and experiences.  I particularly like the fully off-grid set up available and the sense of freedom this brings with it.   Do yourself a favour – escape mortgage slavery and lower your environmental foot print – size does matter – go tiny!

Our trailers come in various sizes and can be tailored to your needs

  • Our tiny house trailers come in conservatively sized ATM* (Aggregate Trailer Mass) weight ratings.
  • The ATM of our trailers are sized to accommodate the building of an off-grid tiny house, which tend to be rated higher (greater ATM) relative to their length in order to accommodate the heavy items that make up an off-grid system including solar panels, deep cycle batteries & wood heater, etc..
  • Prices from $8,916

* ATM (Aggregate Trailer Mass) is the allowable maximum weight of your tiny house, including all your belongings inside.

Fred’s Tiny House Trailers

Purchasing a Fred’s Tiny Houses Trailer will ensure your Tiny House has the strongest and most stable foundation available.

About Fred Schultz

Fred is not your ordinary trailer merchant. He is one of the most respected figures in the Australian Tiny House movement. He designs and builds Tiny Houses, and regularly conducts workshops and information sessions. Fred is passionate about building and assisting others in the building of Tiny Houses, liberating people out of conventional mortgage servitude and deepening connection to the earth.

“Good design means great planning!  That’s why with every trailer we sell, we also give you a free framing plan for building the walls of your tiny house.  And not just any framing plan.  It’s a framing plan specially suited to your trailer to create the strongest attachment between trailer and tiny house anywhere. Guaranteed !”

I have attended Fred’s “How to build a tiny house” workshop and have purchased one of Fred’s trailers. The quality of the trailer is fantastic and has many features that you will not find on other trailers whether they are built by trailer manufacturers or tiny house trailer manufacturers.
The intangible value of getting a trailer from Fred is the knowledge and experience he is able to pass to you in conversation and for me, this was where he went above and beyond expectations. I had a strong desire to begin my DIY “tiny” journey but was quickly being overwhelmed by the process. The workshop and my conversations with Fred have alleviated these feelings.
I strongly recommend Fred’s trailers and workshops.

4 Different Lengths

 

  • Trailers come in the following four lengths: 3.6 metres, 4.8 metres, 6.0 metres, and 7.2. metres.
  • We can design and build longer trailers.  Please note that longer trailers do not include a framing plan and that Fred recommends you complete an accurate weight estimate of your completed tiny house plan to avoid being surprised to find that your completed tiny house exceeds the ATM* of your trailer.

3 Different Styles

 

  1. Straight Axles with wheel guards that protrude about 100mm into the interior of the house.
  2. Drop Axles available for some but not all ATM weight ratings.  A drop axle creates the lowest floor to ground height and allows the greatest head height in the loft.  Drop Axles still have wheel guards that protrude about 100mm into the interior of the house.
  3. “Flat Top” means the floor of the tiny house will extend out over top of the wheels, so your trailer has a flat top and no wheel guards. “Flat Top” trailers eliminate the need to build around wheel guards, but have a higher floor height and less head height in the loft.

Easy Tiny House Trailer Guide

* There are 2 types of tiny house trailers: 1.) With traditional wheel guards and 2.) Without traditional wheel guards – or so called, “Flat Top” trailers.

A “Flat Top” means the floor of your tiny house will extend out over top of the wheels, so your trailer has a “flat top”.  The primary benefit of a“Flat Top” trailer design is the ease & speed of building from wall to wall, because there are no wheel guards to protrude into the interior space of your tiny house.  The primary downside of a “Flat Top” trailer design is the valuable head height in a sleeping loft that is not available, because the floor of the trailer is rather high off the ground.

The primary benefit of a trailer with traditional wheel guards over a “flat top” design is that the floor of your trailer is lower to the ground, giving you more head height in a sleeping loft.   The primary downside is that those wheel guards protrude about 100mm into the interior of the house.  Some DIY tiny house builders fear they will not be able to cope with protruding wheel guards.  With Fred’s innovative Framing Plan solution you need not be fearful of wheel guards.  For more on this, see the note entitled “Wheel Guard Worries ?” in the trailer description section.

** ATM (Aggregate Trailer Mass) is the allowable maximum weight of your tiny house, including all your belongings inside.

*** A “Drop Axle” lowers the floor of your tiny house by 4″ inches or 102mm, giving you that much more head height in a sleeping loft.  Not available on all trailers.  See above.
