When you are trying to decide, you might want to come in to one of the three Trailer Boss locations and check out all the trailers they have. There are utility trailers, dump trailers, cargo trailers, tilt trailers and a variety of others. Knowledgeable and experienced technicians can help you decide what is best for your situation.
There are many factors involved when choosing between aluminum and steel, the following prominent factors.
Cost—This is not as clear cut an issue as some might want to suggest. The initial cost for a new trailer will most likely be higher for those buying aluminum. However, one must consider that maintenance on an aluminum trailer is lower, so the costs associated with aluminum and steel equal out in the end, or may even favor the aluminum.
Corrosion—The fact aluminum is more corrosive resistant than regular steel is why aluminum may, in the long run, cost less.
Strength—Modern aluminum is strong. It may not be as strong as still, but still has a better strength-to-weight ratio than steel.
Weight—Aluminum weighs less than classic steel. Here is another reason why over time the aluminum might be cheaper
After looking at these factors, and talking with your salesperson, you can decide what trailer matches your needs. Every situation is different and you should always share your unique needs so the two of you can make the best selection possible.
