How technical is that? It’s just a trailer right?

I just recently began my work in the trailer/hauler industry, and one consistent thing people ask when I talk about what I do is, “Jon, how technical is that? It’s just a trailer right?” It’s something I would have asked a few months ago too, but it is so much more than that. I have come to know that while there are some trailers that look the same on the outside, what’s on the inside and underneath can be a whole different story. In fact, it has come to blow my mind in the amount of options, upgrades, and customization that can be added to our trailers.

To find out what you want in a trailer just ask yourself, “What do I want to put in this trailer?” Already, in my short time, I have seen so many different variations. The basic work trailers, to concession type trailers, even clothing vendor trailers. There was even one trailer that was used as a simple lawn shed, but with wheels!

Indeed, the most important question you can ask yourself is, “What am I putting in this trailer?” Simultaneously, it is also one of the most important pieces of information that you can communicate to your dealer. Once this information has been supplied, the pieces begin to fall into place and it can be used to construct a fine trailer worthy of your needs!

    I agree that you want to be sure on what you are hauling before you invest in a trailer. We have a couple ATV’s that we just got and are needing a way to transport them. One thing that is important is checking the dimensions of the trailer to make sure you can fit what you need inside.

    My uncle works for a construction company. They are now looking for trailers to put some of the construction supplies. My dad sent him this article for him to consider how technical putting things in the trailer is.

    Thanks for sharing some of the observations you have made while working in the trailer industry, Jon. It is really interesting that you have seen one used as a lawn shed! That would be convenient if you had a job doing yard work because you could easily move all your equipment and tools. Personally, I need one to transport a couple motorcycles. I can’t fit more than one in my truck, so I figured it is time to buy an enclosed trailer with enough room for 2-3 of them. Now that I know what I want, it should be easy to find.
