Understanding 7 Types of Trailers Available on Auction

Trailers are units or unpowered vehicles that are pulled or hauled by powered vehicles, such as trucks or cars. Trailers are of multiple types, each used for a specific purpose, such as providing extra cargo space to carry essentials or for transporting livestock. If you’re on the hunt for the ideal trailer at salvage trailers for sale, it is important to know more about the different types of trailers. To help you better understand your choices, in this blog we cover seven types of trailers available on the market.

1. Full Trailer
A full trailer is supported by both, front and rear axles, and pulled with the help of a drawbar. Full trailers usually measure about 11 to 12m long and 2.4 to 2.6m wide. If you are browsing through salvage trailers for sale for a trailer to haul heavy loads, a full trailer is the ideal choice. A few brands that deserve to be on your “to-buy” shortlist include Fontaine, Vang 53’, and Utility Reefer 53’.

2. Boat Trailer
Boat trailers are used to retrieve, carry, launch, and store boats. They can be broadly classified into commercial and non-commercial trailers. Commercial trailers are usually used by boat dealers and haulers. On the other hand, non-commercial boat trailers are an ideal choice if you wish to buy a trailer to store your boat. A few brands you can shortlist include Mare and Aro.

3. Motorcycle Trailer
Motorcycle trailers are used to haul one or multiple motorcycles. Such trailers can either be open or enclosed. Such trailers are manufactured in a sleek design to safely and efficiently haul motorcycles, A few trailer options that deserve a place on your “to-buy” shortlist include 2010 Pace American, 2013 Other, and 2017 Cars trailer.

4. Livestock Trailer
When it comes to transporting livestock, such as horses or cows, there are a number of trailer options available on the market. The most common livestock trailer used nowadays is a stock trailer. A stock trailer is partly enclosed below eye level, to provide proper ventilation to the animals. A few options that you must shortlist when browsing a salvage trailers auction include 2010 Cher Horsetrail and 2017 Coos Stock.

5. Semi-Trailer
Semi-trailers are not equipped with a front axle. In the U.S, semi trailers cannot exceed 17.37m in length. When it comes to design, semi-trailers are available in a number of options, such as enclosed, open-top grain, flatbeds, chassis, and vans. A few notable options you can consider buying at an auction trailer for sale include 2012 Trail King Gooseneck and 2009 Utility, trailer.

6. Travel Trailer
