Steps to Ruin Your Trailer – Part 2

trailer Seattle WAThis week at Trailer Boss, we are discussing a few ways in which you may be slowy (or quickly) destroying your new trailer in Seattle WA!

By following these steps, you are doing damage to your trailer that may lead to dangerous outcomes! We do not recommend doing the following:

Loading unevenly: You should load your cargo evenly throughout your trailer with about 60 percent of the weight in front on the axle. Weight in the front keeps pressure on the hitch, helping the tow vehicle and trailer to stay connected and maneuvering smoothly. If you want to destroy your utility trailer, stick the heavy stuff on the back.

Ignoring rust spots: The rusty spots on your trailer just keeps others from wanting to steal the vehicle. Also, you like the character the rust gives you vehicle. WRONG. If you spend much time driving through icy roads with salt, your trailer is going to start corroding. Wash you trailer and take care of the rust spots before they spread. Come on in to Trailer Boss and we can address these.

Driving recklessly: The most obvious way to ruin your trailer is to randomly avoid all safety rules. Why would you put yourself and others on the road in danger by abandoning common sense and fly down the road headless of others?
