If you are thinking about purchasing an enclosed trailer, you may be overwhelmed by all of the options out there. There are a multitude of choices and in most cases you are not comparing apples to oranges. In this blog we will give you the low-down on what you need to know when you are shopping for an enclosed utility trailer:

1.       Consider Your Cargo. Before you go shopping for an enclosed cargo trailer you want to think about all of the items you want to haul. If you are going to be hauling a car or truck, you will need a lot more capacity than if you simply wish to haul your motorcycle. If you think you may have the need to haul heavier items in the future, it is best to get a cargo trailer with a larger capacity than what you currently need.

2.       Ramp Options. Enclosed utility trailers have 2 different types of ramps – self contained or detachable. Whenever possible it is best to opt for a self contained ramp that simply folds down or slides out. Detached ramps must be manually put into position and are stored inside the trailer along with your cargo.

3.       Optimal Tie-Downs. The more tie downs a utility trailer has, the better. This will enable you to better secure whatever you are hauling, maximizing safety.

4.       Braking System. Ensure you new enclosed cargo trailer has a braking system that can be integrated electronically with the brake controls in your truck. This will reduce the strain placed on your truck and ensure safety.
