The Benefits of An All Aluminum Cargo Trailer

Thinking about investing in an enclosed cargo trailer? Consider an all aluminum model. While the price will likely be a little higher, the benefits of an aluminum trailer may outweigh the difference in cost. So, what exactly are the benefits?

Aluminum cargo trailers offer the following key benefits over standard steel frame/aluminum skin enclosed trailers:

  • Lightweight


An all aluminum cargo trailer is much lighter than those with steel frames, making them a great option for hauling heavier equipment.

  • Durable


If you live in an area prone to rainy or humid weather conditions, an aluminum trailer is ideal. An all aluminum trailer will be much more resistant to corrosion than those with steel frames/aluminum skins.

  • Higher Quality

The Basics of Trailer Maintenance


Even though our products are extremely well made right here in the USA and many come with our 5-Year Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, routine maintenance is still required! Of course many of our customers are familiar with what it takes to keep a trailer running great and looking its best. For those who need a little refresher, here you go:

Keep it Clean

Since many our trailers are coated with several coats of special automotive paint and sealer, it is best to use a solution specifically designed for automotive finishes. Avoid using a high-powered pressure washer, which can be rough on the finish. We typically recommend hand washing with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. If you spend time in areas affected by snow, ice, or salt air and moisture, it will be necessary to rinse your trailer lightly after it's been exposed to the elements. Keeping your trailer clean will add years to its life. Be sure to give the areas around lights, fenders, doors, windows, and any other exterior hardware a good cleaning as well.

After a good scrub, rinse the trailer and either allow it to air dry or towel dry it. A coat of wax, especially on the exterior metal components, is another way to boost the longevity of your trailer, plus it makes it look fantastic!

Repair-Replace-Refurbish

After cleaning, give your trailer the once over, inside and out. Keep an eye out for any rust or popping paint. Check the flooring, lights, and interior walls and ceiling for signs of wear. If your model has doors and windows, check the integrity of seals and gaskets to ensure that moisture does not seep in and harm your precious cargo.


Lubricate

Your trailer's joints and axles keep the ride smooth, so make sure they stay well-greased and in good repair. Built up dirt and grime cause the lubrication to wear down, which results in friction and possible breakdown. These areas need extra special attention: the winch, ball hitch, springs, and tongue jack. Other vital components that keep your trailer moving efficiently are the wheel bearings. Keep these well greased so the trailer wheels can fully rotate.

Check the Air

The manual that came with your trailer includes details regarding the suggested pounds per square inch (psi) of inflation. This is an important item, especially if your trailer sits for long periods of time when the tires will just naturally lose a little air here and there on their own. Driving with low air is dangerous and can cause a blowout. Don't forget to check your tire treads as well! Replace those worn out tires and check your spares while you're at it. The Boy Scouts motto is certainly true when it comes to maintaining your treasured vehicles: "Be prepared."
