Why you should turn your cargo trailer into a tiny home

Updated: Mar 27

With their sturdy floors and beefy axles meant to withstand heavy loads, enclosed cargo trailers have become the starting point for thrifty tiny home enthusiasts. They are available in many different sizes, so you can pick which one is right for you. There are so many reasons as to why people are beginning to opt for living in tiny homes over more traditional ones. 

Benefits of a tiny trailer home

You’ll Never Be Stuck in One Place 

A huge benefit to turning a cargo trailer into a tiny house is the ability to be able to move it around wherever you want to go. Cargo trailers are easy to move around and can be parked anywhere you want to go. You won’t even have to pack your bags since everything you need will already be in your tiny home. Having a mobile tiny house makes it easy to travel and see new places. If you travel for work this is particularly useful as well as you won’t need to fork out on hotels and will have all your possessions with you wherever you go. 

Building it is incredibly cheap

The cost of having a tiny house built is considerably more affordable than having a regular home built. Not only that, but it is a lot easier too, so it can be done by yourself instead of getting costly builders in. You are able to customise everything to how you want and what you need. 

It’s better for the environment

Tiny homes are much more environmentally friendly than more traditional homes as they usually require a lot more resources to build and a lot more power and energy to run. Tiny homes use solar and wind energy to run anyway which are both renewable energy sources. You can even make your new home extra unique by using re-purposed and recycled materials to spruce it up. 

Live clutter free

As tiny homes are very small you will have to de clutter your life and only bring the essentials. When you live in a traditional home it is easy to just build up clutter as you have more space to keep it. With tiny homes you’ll learn to appreciate you’re you have and get a better understanding of what you really need and what you don’t.

Spend Less money on upkeep

As you have ditched the clutter and there isn’t a lot of space, you will spend way less time cleaning and dealing with general upkeep. Your house can easily be refurnished as there won’t be much to replace if you want to. 

You can earn money

Some people are choosing to live in tiny homes and rent out their already bought traditional ones. This is a great way to earn some extra cash if you are saving for something or struggling to keep up with all your finances. Some are even selling their homes to live in tiny houses so that they can afford to go travelling in them with all of the extra money.
