What's the Difference Between Gooseneck and Bumper Trailers?

Gooseneck and bumper trailers often have a lot of similarities; however, they are essentially two different trailer models.

You may already be familiar with bumper trailers since they are commonly used for hauling. Anything from landscaping equipment to furniture to personal items can be hauled with a small, simple bumper trailer. Larger bumper trailers like 8.5x20 enclosed trailers can be used to haul bigger equipment, vehicles, or just about anything else.

The gooseneck can handle those things as well, but the way the trailer is pulled is slightly different, due to its unique hitch placement.

Trailer Check-up - Make Sure Your Trailer is Ready for Summer Travel

Whether you have a cargo, motorcycle, car, utility, horse, equipment, or restroom trailer, proper maintenance and upkeep is needed to ensure that it performs reliably year after year. At TrailerShowroom, we have a wide variety of trailers to meet your needs, and we want to help you protect your investment by providing you with a checklist of sorts keep your trailer on the road and out of the repair shop.


The brakes are obviously a critical component, and you want to have them serviced on regular intervals. If you have a disc brake setup, the drums, shoes, and related hardware need to be looked at; the rotors need to be changed if they are damaged; and the pads should be replaced if excessively worn. If you have a drum and disc brake hydraulic setup, you need to look at the wheel cylinders, master cylinder, and brake lines to see if there are any fluid leaks. It's also important to check for any rust. If you have an electric brake setup, you need to check the wiring, magnets, electrical connectors, and battery. You should also ensure that the emergency battery is charged completely and properly mounted.


The bearings are also very important, so you want to disassemble them, clean them out, inspect them for damage, and repack them with fresh grease. Failing to service the bearings at least once a year could cause them to implode without notice, which would potentially be disastrous.
