Whether a new model or a quality used model, the enclosed trailers are a great investment in your business or hobby. The right choice requires little research and a full understanding of your needs.
An enclosed trailer can be an empty canvas that can hold everything from a small home, running a small business, or transporting your precious goods from one place to another.
Enclosed Trailer Construction
When buying an enclosed trailer, consider the size and weight of your trailer. Start shopping from the inside out, and start with the trailer frame. The frame of your trailer can support the trailer’s weight and its load. Trailers can be aluminum or steel; with I-beam, tubular, L-shaped or C-channel beam. The strongest rays are the ones that have the most metal. Next, evaluate how the frame is configured, fine cross-members positioned to support heavy loads – at intervals of 16 to 24 inches or less – as your trailer will be towed and carry a lot of cargo.
How Many Axles?
An axial trailer is sufficient for transporting small loads. A well-configured, single-axle spring-loaded trailer is great for small businesses or transporting small items. Most single-axle trailers can be used without a heavy trailer, and smaller, simpler trailers do not require a large investment—plan to transport cargo or equipment up to 3,000 pounds in an axial trailer.
If you plan to haul heavier loads, consider a double axle with multiple axles attached. The axles are positioned to help distribute the load’s weight and provide shock absorption and maneuverability. Taller trailers can use more axles, designed to carry even heavier loads.
Find a trailer with improved suspension and independent electric brakes if you constantly carry heavy loads over long distances.
Enclosed Trailers: How Big?
Know your cargo when deciding which enclosed trailer to buy. Before choosing a trailer, determine how wide, deep and how much your load will weigh. If your cargo is a pick-up, you will need a trailer at least 8 feet wide and 16 feet deep, with a double axle, while a farrier can see a 5-foot-wide, single-axle closed trailer commercial equipment. Look for a half-size trailer if you’re motivated to keep landscaping equipment away from the elements – and vandals and thieves.
Enclosed Trailer Features
The enclosed trailers are the perfect blank canvas, ready to be customized to suit your specific needs.
For trailers – from snowmobiles, mowers, ATVs to veterans – find out the position of the clips and ask about the load capacity of the rings to strengthen your load. Think of a gate style that is right for your attached trailer. While a small trailer business owner may find a double door in the back driveway, a vintage car enthusiast who attends several exhibitions may need a folding entrance gate.
Choose air conditioning and secure shelves if your delivery to the bakery exceeds the delivery capacity of a family car, or look for custom-made hooks and hangers to keep lawn care equipment safe between jobs. If your enclosed trailer is your workspace, add air conditioning lighting and look for trailers with side entrances.
