Just like when you’re choosing an RV at our Pennsylvania area dealership, choosing the right trailer will depend heavily on your individual plans and needs; there’s no one-size-fits-all “best trailer.” There are many different types of trailers, in fact, and the right one will vary a lot from person to person.
Fortunately, the team at our trailer dealer near Pennsylvania is here to help you hone in on exactly what you need. Take a look at some key questions to ask yourself, then reach out to our team and let us point you in the right direction!
Work or Play?
Whether you own your own company or just have a lot to move around on your own property, a utility trailer serves a completely different purpose than a travel trailer. We offer both at Dylans RV, so you can always come in and take a look if you’re not sure what you’re after.
A utility trailer can be open or closed, and the choice is yours to make. While an open trailer can be loaded from any side and is less restrictive for awkwardly shaped cargo, it doesn’t offer protection from the elements and you’ll have to be extra careful when strapping things down.
A travel trailer, of course, will be closed off from the elements. Still, you’ll need to consider your cargo when choosing a trailer if you’re buying one for toting extra belongings.
Camping trailers and utility trailers both come in a range of sizes, so be realistic when choosing. Sure, you might save some money by choosing a smaller trailer, but that doesn’t do you much good if you can’t fit your equipment on it or if you and your friends are cramped while camping out.
By the same logic, buying an oversized trailer is a waste of space if it’s more than you really need. That’s sure to hit home while you’re maneuvering, too.
Whatever sort of trailer you need, you’ll also need an appropriate vehicle for towing it. This can vary drastically. Some teardrop trailers, for instance, are light enough to be towed by a typical sedan. Larger utility trailers, though, might require a ¾- or full-ton truck to tow. Be sure to do your research before hitching up!
