 +There are a couple of basic decisions to make about the trailer the tiny house will be built on:
 +
 +  * **New or used?** - Either way, any old trailer of the right size will not do, it has to have the right specifications for the job. Also, the cost of fixing up a used trailer may eat up any savings.
 +  * **Custom built for tiny homes?** - This niche apparently got started around 2012, and there are now at least a couple of companies offering a full line.
