What’s it going to take to tow your tiny house? What size truck should you get? Should you hire it out or do it yourself? In this 5 minute episode of our Digital Tiny House Workshop we cover the towing capacity for the three most common truck sizes as well as pros and cons of buying a truck or hiring a company to do it for you.

TOWING CAPACITY FOR EACH TRUCK SIZE:

1/2 ton: 10,000# Tow Capacity; New $26-34,000
3/4 ton: 14,000# Tow Capacity (Gas) – 18,000# (Diesel); New $32-46,000
1 ton: 18,000# Tow Capacity (Gas) – 30,000# (Diesel); New $32-48,000

If we were to buy a new truck to tow it around, we would be looking at doubling our investment. Yikes!

If you don’t need a large truck in your day to day life, hiring out the move may make more financial sense. Having a reputable hauler do the hard work for you will take away the stress and risk of you towing it yourself. Their licensing, insurance, and bond will cover your tiny house in case of an accident. Be sure to watch this free episode to find out more considerations before deciding whether to purchase a truck or to hire it out.
