BETTER WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION

A gooseneck trailer has a bigger weight distribution when you compare it to other tiny house trailers. With the even weight distribution, it becomes easy to use the braking system as it tends to increase. This is made possible thanks to the balance that exists between the back and front end of your vehicle. In addition to this, a gooseneck shortens the overall length of your trailer when using it in a 5th wheel situation.

MORE HEAD

Goosenecks are more reliable than a loft bedroom considering the fact that you get more headspace. You will therefore always have an upper and mid-level room thus providing enough space for your family. In addition to this, you do not have to worry about the ladders since it has a suitable design for making your tiny house living comfortable.

EASY TO MANEUVER

Gooseneck trailers are easier to maneuver especially when making a U-turn in limited spaces. The enhanced maneuverability of a gooseneck also makes it suitable for backing up the trailer. When the maneuvering feature is in play, the drive axle and hitch pivot move to zero or any other figure close to that.

DISADVANTAGES OF GOOSENECK TRAILERS

RARELY MOVES

If you are planning on moving your tiny house, then a gooseneck should not be among the list of trailers that you want to buy. This is because you will have to rely on professional movers whenever you want to travel with your tiny house. Alternatively, you can decide to use your own pickup or one ton, diesel truck. Most people will, however, prefer hiring someone to move it since the cheapest truck can cost around $80,000.

HAULING

Hauling a gooseneck trailer is not a walk in the park due to its large size. Actually, most goosenecks are so heavy that they are sometimes put in the same category as other commercials. If you are thinking about purchasing gooseneck, then you should first look for a pickup truck before getting one.

LOW CEILINGS

Most goosenecks have a low ceiling height despite setting aside enough space for your head. With this design mistake, it becomes hard to walk around since you have to avoid hitting the ceiling with your head.

CONCLUSION

Gooseneck trailers are a good choice if you want to make your own small home on a foundation. However, you must first examine every possible feature of the trailer. Through this action, you will be able to determine whether it is the right trailer for your tiny home. You should, therefore, select a hitch that offers a good run for your money. By doing so, you will enjoy living in your new tiny house on a gooseneck trailer.
