Choosing the Right Truck for your Tiny House
All of our tiny houses on wheels are able to be towed; however, if you will be moving around regularly, we recommend purchasing a tiny house under 24 feet long.
The weight of B&B Tiny Houses depends on the size and materials used. A vinyl-sided 20′ Hoosic weighs around 9400 pounds, while a solid wood clapboard-sided 20′ Hoosic weighs around 10,000 pounds. The 20′ Brodie Office/Studio with T-111 siding weighs the least of everything we’ve weighed so far, at 8,000 pounds, and the 30′ Stony Ledge with solid wood clapboard siding comes in at around 14,000 pounds.
As a general rule, our tiny houses weigh between 400-500 pounds per foot, so to determine the weight multiply the number of feet by 400 and 500 to give you an estimate.

Our tiny houses can be delivered anywhere in the United States, so if you plan on staying in only one spot, then you do not need to ever worry about towing your tiny house.
We tow our tiny houses that are under 24 feet with a Chevy Silverado 2500. For larger tiny houses, we hire a professional shipping company. As always, our customers are welcome to pick up their tiny house at out manufacturing plant. If you are looking for trucks with large towing capacities, then check out this article on the trucks with the highest towing capacity.
