Google Trends is proving that home ownership is becoming a dream for many people in Australia so they are looking for alternatives like tiny house or tiny home options to reduce their living costs. In Australia there hasn’t been a clear ruling made on how tiny houses get classified so currently they don’t have to meet the National Construction Code (NCC) or Building Code of Australia (BCA) although the Tiny House Association has written a guide for potential owners to learn more about them.

We carry a 50mm, 60mm and 70mm tow ball with our tow truck vehicle with choice of trailer hitch shapes including pintle hook and goosneck trailer hook.
A pintle hook is a towing hitch that is primarily used in heavy duty towing situations. The hitch itself consists of two parts and resembles a hook that is mounted to the vehicle and can be closed around a ring (lunette or pintle ring) that is mounted on the trailer.
Unlike regular hitches that extend from the back of the towing vehicle, gooseneck hitches, and the closely-related fifth wheel hitches, are anchored through the bed of a pickup truck. Gooseneck hitches use a hitch ball to lock into place, while fifth wheel hitches use a wheel-shaped plate to accomplish the connection.
Either one is ideal for towing heavy trailers or tiny houses on a trailer.
Our Dodge Ram truck has been heavily modified for the specific purpose of towing heavy loads. The rear section of the truck has been modified to make sure it can cope with the extreme forces that heavy loads can apply to a vehicle. Most ordinary road vehicles will not be able to cope with this type of application.
Our tow truck has 2WD and 4WD low range gearing plus air bag suspension which makes it possible to get in and out of tight spaces while dealing with slippery surfaces like grass, wet fields, mud or steep inclines.
