Have you been using a trailer for years, but it does not seem to be what you need? Are you upgrading what you are pulling and need to find something a bit bigger or something sturdier? Finding the right size trailer is dependent upon many aspects. One being, what kind of towing vehicle you are going to be using.  This will determine the tongue weight so you can figure out how much you have left over for the trailer and additional cargo!

You also have to look at the different trailer types and their sizes. Because there are so many different sizes and classes, you need to consider the long term affect when purchasing your trailer. Lastly, what are you trying to haul on the trailer. Are you planning to move your motorcycle, do you need to haul large equipment for work, or do you need something a bit heavier duty to dump things?

Here are a few different options to help you determine what size trailer you may need!

How to Determine the Right Size Trailer

If you are planning to transport something smaller like a motorcycle, check out this model. The Aluma MC210 Aluminum Motorcycle trailer.

Sizing: 11’6” by 6’5”.

This is a smaller but more specified trailer. It is easy to store and has a ramp to easily take your bike on and off.

Do you typically have a lot of equipment to haul around?

With more weight, you are going to need a larger trailer that allows more cargo room as well as taking safety precautions very seriously. The Midsota ET8220 Equipment Trailer gives you a lot more space (20’0” by 6’10”) and has an adjustable 2-5/16” Coupler with a Beaver tail and spring Assist 5’ Fold up Ramps. This is much more practical for larger items, machinery, or a large quantity of equipment pieces.
