There are many ways to design a cargo trailer depending on the needs, goals, and desires of the owner. As your dependable custom trailer manufacturer, we’ll give you some insights into what makes a good cargo trailer.
What type of trailer are you looking for? This factor should be the first on your list when building a cargo trailer. Are you looking for an open, enclosed, landscaping, motorcycle, ATV, equipment, machinery or horse trailer? Are you looking for a trailer that has dual purposes? These things should be kept in mind when determining exactly what you need it to do.
What pull type do you prefer? A bumper pull, gooseneck, 5th wheel or pintle?
Considering the height when customising your trailer is important. Will you need to stand up inside? Do you have all equipment to put inside? Take some time to do some measurements before you design your trailer. This way, you could save a lot of space and money. Also, don’t forget to think about storage – will you park it in a garage or will it stay outside? Make sure it will fit into any space required.
Just like height, length should also be measured properly. Take your time to consider the things you will put inside your trailer. Extra length means more difficulty in maneuvering, and additional construction cost, so don’t add extra length unnecessarily.
You may need power inside your trailer. Generators can be integrated into your trailer with some thought to ensure they do not unnecessarily limit its use.
If you are doing long hauls you may also want to consider including some space for sleeping while off road.
