Whatever you’re pulling, make certain the lighting is correct.
Whatever type of trailer you have, whether its a utility trailer, cargo trailer, dump trailer or anything in between, you need to have the proper lighting before heading out on the road.
The DOT—Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration–has strict requirements for trailer lights.
If you are concerned about whether or not you are in compliance with federal laws or state laws you need to stop by Trailer Boss and have one of our technicians look over your trailer.
We understand that all trailer lights must be permanently attached to the trailer. Make certain that the lights on the side of the trailer are parallel to the center of the trailer. The lights on both the front and the back should be perpendicular to the center line. This rule excludes any lights that have been set at a certified angle. Not only are trailers required to have lights, but they must also be equipped with rear and side reflectors.
