Why consider an Elite All Aluminum Cargo Trailer?

Cargo trailers come in a wide variety of models, sizes and materials. Here at The Trailer Showroom, we use high quality materials to manufacture all of our cargo trailers. But one particular type of cargo trailer stands out a little more -- the Elite All Aluminum Cargo Trailers. These enclosed cargo trailers are manufactured using a completely aluminum frame and skin for superior quality and durability.


The prices of our Elite All Aluminum Cargo Trailers can vary by model, but we're confident you'll find all of our prices to be reasonable for the level of quality we offer.


We have Elite All Aluminum Cargo Trailers in sizes ranging from 5 to 8.5 feet in width and from 8 feet to 50 feet in length. Depending on your cargo needs, we likely have a size that will work for you or your business.

Benefits of Choosing All Aluminum

While the prices of aluminum and other metals fluctuate with supply and demand, aluminum is generally more expensive than steel; however, it can offer benefits that steel does not.

1. Corrosion Resistant

Aluminum does not rust. It also doesn't have a coating that can wear off over time, leaving it vulnerable to the elements. Steel on the other hand, usually has to be painted or treated to protect it from rust and corrosion.

2. Lightweight

Steel is strong, there's no doubt about that. But it's also heavy. In fact, steel is around 2.5 times denser than aluminum. When it comes to hauling a cargo trailer - particularly a large one - it can be beneficial to choose something manufactured using lightweight (yet still durable) materials. This can help with your vehicle's fuel economy, and many aluminum trailer owners say it can make for a much smoother ride. Plus, with the lighter weight of the aluminum trailer, your payload capacity will be greater. In other words, you can load more items into the trailer before reaching the maximum weight your vehicle will tow.

3. May be easier to repair

It may sound a little confusing, but aluminum (at least in some instances) can be a better choice than steel because it is more malleable. While steel is very strong and can withstand a lot of weight before it bends, that makes it harder to work with and can make it nearly impossible for even top-skilled technicians to repair a damaged steel frame. Aluminum however, doesn't require as much force to bend, making it easier to repair. So although aluminum may be "weaker" in one sense, it is actually the stronger metal in another sense because it can be reshaped and repaired with less effort.
