Benefits of Aluminum Cargo Trailers

If you are considering purchasing an enclosed cargo trailer, you are likely trying to weigh the pros and cons of aluminum versus steel. While size is important, this is solely weighted on your usage need. The construction of an enclosed cargo trailer is where you weigh value.

As you know, aluminum enclosed cargo trailers may be a bit more expensive, but we at Trailer Showroom believe their beneficial characteristics justify the additional cost.

Let's take a look at the beneficial characteristics of aluminum enclosed cargo trailers:


The most obvious advantage to aluminum versus steel is that aluminum is significantly lighter which translates to more fuel efficiency, easier maneuverability, and the ability to carry heavier cargo which could result in fewer trips.


Aluminum is also more durable than steel as there is no paint or coating to wear or scratch off. Steel often needs painting or treating to protect it from rust and corrosion especially if the steel portion will be laboring in a moist, damp or abrasive environment.


Aluminum is also stronger than steel because it is more malleable and elastic. Aluminum can be spun and shaped more intricately than can steel making the finished extrusion stronger. For parts with deep and straight walls such as those associated with enclosed cargo trailers, aluminum is the material of choice.
