How to Choose the Right Trailer?

The purchase of a trailer is often made in response to a specific need. Sorting green waste, going on holidays, heavy-duty works, moving, transportation, etc. In this regard, the trailer is a very practical equipment.

However, we would like the trailer to be able to meet other needs as well, which means that its modularity should be an essential criterion to consider. So, before you go ahead with the purchase of your next trailer, here are some useful tips that you might want to keep in mind.

First, you have to ask yourself what this trailer will be primarily used for. Will you use it mainly as an equipment for work (transport of materials, tools, specialized equipment, etc.) or for several other purposes on a regular basis? The answer to this question is paramount in order for you to make the right choice. For example, at Remorques 125 & Powersports 125, we can advise you depending on your needs by presenting you with different options. If you only need your trailer to complete your renovation work, then opt for a single-axle trailer. This type of trailer has two wheels and is versatile. If you need a trailer for different activities, and with which you intend to hit the road regularly, you should instead turn to a double-axle trailer. This model has four wheels and is known for its stability. With this type of trailer, the loads tend to be better distributed. It is also often said that a double-axle trailer is more stable. For the transport of larger materials and tools on a more regular basis or for larger waste, this type of trailer becomes more optimal equipment.

But there is more to think about than the axles. Take note of the fact that steel crates are often stronger and more effective than those made from other materials. In addition, you should pay attention to the diameter of the wheels, especially if you have to use your trailer on a regular basis.

It is also suggested to make sure that the hitch is high-quality and V-shaped. This one allows to better balance your hitch and it’s thus more effective. In any case, your hitch must also be chosen according to the type of your vehicle. If you intend to carry solid materials such as sand or gravel in your trailer, you should check the tilting of the box. In this regard, a tilting front and rear is required if you often carry this kind of materials. Another factor to consider when buying a trailer is its weight. It’s likely that your trailer will have another purpose than the one you are currently envisioning. It’s suggested be careful by opting for a slightly larger trailer or one that can carry a 20% higher load. That should help you avoid surprises.

As you can see, the choice of a trailer is not as simple as some of us think, since there are as many trailers as there are potential usages. For example, the luggage trailer is of fairly light size will be useful for vacations and short trips, for example. The van trailer is more specifically designed for the transport of horses. The vehicle carrier trailer is the ideal equipment for transporting motorcycles, boats, bicycles or even cars. Some vacationer who leave for the South in winter will transport their main vehicle with this kind of trailer. There are also recreational or sport trailers. They are made for quads, motocross and more. Finally, we can’t ignore trailers that are made for heavy work. As their name suggests, they are larger to allow you to transport materials of all kinds.
