Why Buy an Aluminum Frame Cargo Trailer?

Here at The Trailer Showroom, we're proud to offer a range of cargo trailer options, including our line of Elite All-Aluminum trailers. These enclosed cargo trailers are designed and manufactured using a 100% aluminum frame and skin for superior quality and extended durability.

If you're considering purchasing an all-aluminum cargo trailer, but aren't fully sure if it's worth the cost, read on. We're confident you'll see the value in choosing an aluminum frame cargo trailer, especially one manufactured right here in the USA from Trailer Showroom.

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. On the other hand, aluminum can offer benefits that steel does not.

1. Resistant to Corrosion

Unlike steel, aluminum does't rust. It also doesn't have a coating that can wear off over time, leaving it vulnerable to the elements of Mother Nature. By contrast, steel requires occasional painting or treating to protect it from rust and corrosion.

2. Lightweight

The great thing about steel is that it is very strong. However, it's also very heavy. Steel is around 2.5 times denser than aluminum, making it considerably heavier and adding a considerable amount to your GVW.

Choosing a more lightweight (yet still durable) material 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 since you can load more cargo in the trailer before reaching the maximum weight.

3. Repairs May be Easier

Aluminum is more malleable than steel, making it a bit easier to work with. While steel frames are very strong and can withstand a lot of weight before they bend, that makes them more difficult to repair even for the most skilled technicians. Aluminum however, doesn't require as much force to bend. 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.


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. Although aluminum frame cargo trailers tend to be priced slightly higher than their steel frame counterparts, many customers discover the cost to be well worth the added durability.


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. We likely have a size that will work for your personal cargo needs or your small business.
