Typically, trailers need to be equipped with telephone lines and electrical power. Lavatories are usually provided for separately. They are often skid-mounted, on trailers, or put on piles. Construction trailers are often manufactured using traditional stick-frame construction. Intermodal containers are also being converted into construction trailers.
Use in different countries
Municipalities can require the use of construction trailers to be subject to permit proceedings. The City of Fremont, California, for example, publishes its permit requirements on its municipal website.
Construction trailers are ordinarily moved by heavy trucks but may also be moved by rail.
There are people in Europe, especially in German-speaking Europe, who live in trailers of this type, and in German there are words for a congregation of these trailers, Bauwagenplatz and Wagenburg.
