Tow Truck Equipment

Hello, my name is Norman and this is my towing and tow truck blog. My first experience with a tow truck was when I found myself trapped in the Outback. The wheels of my caravan had become completely submerged in wet sand and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get them free. I tried digging at them with a spade, placing pieces of heavy cardboard beneath them and revving the engine. Nothing worked. I eventually called the local tow truck company who came and pulled me free. I was so impressed that I started to take an interested in their magnificent equipment. Since that time, I have become something of a self-taught tow truck expert.

Reasons to Use a Box Trailer for Your Camper Conversion

If you are considering living in a camper on a long-term basis, you may be considering a camper conversion. This means looking for trailers that may fit your needs for a totally customisable option. One of the options is to go to auctions and sales held by towing services getting rid of box trailers. Once you have one of these trailers, you can go to custom trailer builders to help come up with your custom build. Before you take this route and begin the process, there are a few reasons to consider box trailers as your ideal option. Here are a few of those reasons.

Open Floor Plan

One of the main reasons to use box trailers for your camper conversion is the open floor plan. Keep in mind that most box trailers have no features. They have the entrance door that locks on the outside, and that's it. This open floor plan allows you to design the camper to fit your long-term needs. You can design your sleeping area, lighting, kitchen and even a toilet and shower. You can also have your custom trailer builder add items based on the size and needs to give you the ideal build with total customizable options.

Size Options

When people think of a box trailer, they think of smaller towing services trailers for in-town moving. The truth is there are many size options for your box trailers. You can get them longer for bigger families as well. This means you can have the custom build that will fit your family needs and lifestyle. This includes the ability to add multiple sleeping options, larger showers and even washer and dryer connections.

Road Legal

When you build your own tiny home, you may find that you are not road legal. This refers to either the size of the tiny home or the weight. Certain builds may be too wide, too tall or too heavy for your local Department of Transportation guidelines. Even with certifications and truck driving licenses, you may still be unable to operate the tiny home on the road legally. When you use an empty box trailer and a custom builder, then you are assured you are road legal from start to finish with your design plans.

These are just a few of the reasons to use box trailers from towing service sales and auctions in your camper conversion build. If you are ready to get started, contact your local towing services. They can tell you what box trailers they may be selling and how to go about purchasing one for your custom build long-term camper conversion needs.
