Chassis for log cabin mobile homes

We can supply steel chassis with lifting points to suit our own Hortons log cabins of any size - we list standard sizes and prices on our website but any size is possible (price on request).

Your log cabin can easily qualify as a transportable mobile home once installed upon the chassis, as dictated by "The Caravan Act".

Cabins over 4m wide need to be manufactured in a way that they can be seperated into 2 halves and therefore 2 chassis will be required as it will need to be a "Twin Unit".

The chassis rest upon a series of concrete pads or a full concrete raft foundation (not included in the price).

This kit includes-

  • Full structural steel ring beam
  • Intermediate steel spacer bars
  • Red oxide primer applied to all steel components for long term rust protection (ready for you to apply your own finishing top coat)
  • Structural tanalised timber joists
  • Tanalised timber noggings all around perimeter
  • Tanalised timber base plate (to be bolted onto the steel ring beam)
  • OSB3 boards to give a flat deck over the whole structure
  • All bolts and fixings supplied

NB - Timber parts need to be cut and notched on site.
