About Flatbed Trailer

You are captivated by the tiny house movement, and buying a flatbed trailer can be the first step in making your dream a reality. A small, 8-foot trailer is ideal for quick tow jobs, but a larger flatbed trailer of 53 feet or longer is ideal for towing larger items or as a base for your tiny house. One main consideration when choosing a flatbed trailer is the hitch style. A tagalong, or bumper pull flatbed trailer hitch, is one of the most common styles. These attach to the ball hitch on the back of the vehicle, and because most trucks and SUVs come with ball hitches, you likely will not need any additional equipment. Gooseneck flatbed trailer hitches, on the other hand, attach to a ball hitch in the bed of the truck. This reduces sway and allows you to tow more weight than bumper pull hitches can allow. Gooseneck trailers are also typically longer than bumper pulls. A flatbed trailer purchase can seem daunting, but with the large selection available on eBay, you can find the right trailer with the right hitch to tow your load or build your tiny house.
