This question is very important because the type of cargo you’re planning to haul will directly influence the size or trailer and the options you choose for the interior of your enclosed trailer. Maybe your business requires you to carry tools inside your cargo trailer, if so, you might want to consider adding interior racks and shelves for organizing your tools and materials.

In some cases, you might be hauling items that need to be kept at a certain temperature. If this is the case, you will want to opt for customizations like vents and air conditioning to maintain a temperature-controlled environment while you’re on the road.  Depending on the size of items you are hauling, you may need to add additional height to the standard trailer sizes to accommodate oversized cargo.

Will you use your trailer to market your business?

Important Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing an Enclosed Cargo Trailer

trailers in Spokane WAAt Trailer Boss we offer our customers trailers in many stylesoptions, and sizes. One of our favorite trailers in Spokane WA to sell is an enclosed cargo trailer, simply because we know that their function and protection offers our customers a great hauling experience.

Before we sell cargo trailer though, we believe that it’s important to make sure our customers have done their homework to figure out what they truly need.

To help you make this important decision, we are going to dedicate our next few blog posts to discussing some of the basic guidelines on how to choose the right enclosed cargo trailer for you

  1. What will you be using it for? This is the first question you should ask yourself and is probably the most important. The answer will likely influence the size of the trailer you buy and the customization options you add.  For example, if you will be using the trailer for your handyman business, you may only need a 5 foot wide single axle trailer for your tools and materials. On the other hand, if you need a trailer to haul vehicles or machinery, then you will need a larger trailer equipped with a ramp door and maybe even some tread plates.
  2. How far will you be traveling with it? This question is very important when considering the options to choose with your enclosed trailer.  Simple travel around town will only require the standard exterior options.  That said, if you will be taking your trailer across the country, you will want to think about purchasing various upgrades to enhance the safety of the trailer on such long hauls.

These two questions are the first and most vital to which enclosed trailer you choose, but in our next blog post we will discuss a few more factors to consider during your research. Contact us today if you have any questions about hauling your trailer.

5 Important Safety Tips for Towing a Teardrop Trailer

teardrop trailer in Marysville WAWith spring rapidly approaching every day, many of our customers are starting to daydream about their upcoming adventures.

Today we will be discussing some easy-to-follow towing safety tips that will help put your mind to ease on your upcoming adventure with you teardrop trailer in Marysville WA.

Make sure you have a capable tow vehicle:

Instead of just hooking it up and hoping for the best, you need to find the official documentation about your vehicle’s towing capacity, and compare it to the weight of your trailer — including the weight of all the stuff you put into it!

Pack light:

When determining the weight you are going to be carrying, you may want to go easy on clothing, food, accessories, gear, and other belongings. Bring only necessities to ensure that you do not overload your teardrop trailer, especially if your vehicle and hitch do not have a very high towing rating. Did you know that water alone weighs more than eight pounds per gallon? Your weight sure can add up fast if you don’t pay attention.

Pay attention to trailer weight distribution.

Try to distribute the weight so that 60% or more is in the front end of the RV to help keep it running smooth and straight on the road behind your tow vehicle. If more than 40% of the weight is concentrated in the back of the trailer, it will become “tail heavy,” and can cause some major issues on the road.

Remember to take your time and take it slow:

Don’t forget that you are hauling extra weight. It is always a good idea to hang out in the right hand lane and get used to watching smaller cars pass you.

If possible, never slam on the brakes:

Your trailer is simply too heavy to stop on a dime. When you try to slam on the breaks, all that extra weight can cause you to skid, jack knife, or worse.

Now that you know the most important tips about hauling your teardrop trailer in Marysville WA, you can start planning all of your spring adventures! Feel free to contact Trailer Boss today to discuss all of your options or to have your trailer inspected before you hit the road.


Don’t Make This Common Mistake When Considering Towing Ratings

truck for trailer in Seattle WAWhen it comes to safe hauling, looking at towing ratings is one of the most important things you should consider. At Trailer Boss we always recommend that you consider what you are hauling, your tow vehicle, and your trailer together before making big purchases.

If you assume you are hauling a safe load prior to considering all of the factors in your towing set up, you might end up in some dangerous situations.

If you know that your vehicle has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 9,000 lbs and your new trailer model weighs only 6,000 lbs, you can’t just assume you are ready to hit the road. This is actually one of the most common mistake made by haulers and can lead to driving down the road with far too much weight on your hitch and trailer.

Many times vehicle manufacturers will boast about how much weight their trucks can pull or tow, but this number often falls short when it comes to the capacity of the hitch and the tongue weight the hitch is capable of carrying.

This puts you in the situation of having a large suitcase, composed of the strongest material in the world, capable of holding a great deal of weight. Then when you go to pick it up, the handle can handle the weight and breaks immediately.

To combat this dilemma, we recommend that you remember that what you are hauling is only as safe as the weakest link.  If your vehicle can haul 12,000 lbs but for some reason your hitch is only rated to carry 500 lbs, you better not have any more than 500 lbs on the tongue weight, or you will be putting yourself and everyone else on the road at risk of a serious accident.

If you are stumped about the rating system or can’t decide on the right hitch or trailer for your tow vehicle, your experts in trailers in Seattle WA can answer all of your questions and help prepare for your next haul. Contact us or come see us at one of our 3 locations today.

While towing in the winter, you may find yourself in a situation where the weather fluctuates.  Even if the majority of your journey has you in ideal conditions, rain or snow may begin to fall while you’re traveling. If this happens, slow down to a speed at which you feel safe and increase the distance between your vehicle and those in front of you. Slow down well in advance of a stop or turn to avoid skidding on slippery roads.

It is also a good idea to remember to take a break when you get tired or when weather, visibility and road conditions begin to worsen while you’re driving. Whether you are planning to pull off the road and find something else to do for a while or stay at a hotel to wait it out, sometimes it is a safe bet to stop driving for a while. It you may increase your travel expenses or time traveling, your safety is well worth it.  You can use the time to rest, have a bite to eat, check to see when the weather will improve, and resume travel when the weather improves.

Last but not least, please remember to always wear your seatbelt! Just like you secure your precious cargo, it’s even more important to protect yourself and your passengers by making sure they buckle up.
