8 by 5 Box Trailer

If you’re always on the go with something in tow, an 8 by 5 box trailer can make getting around so much easier. It’s big enough for lawn and landscaping equipment, jet skis, ATVs, motorcycles and more. When you’re looking for box trailers, keep in mind what it is you want to do with it. You can use them for commercial purposes or recreational. You may want something with relatively low sides for easy loading and unloading. You may need something more secure, like an enclosed trailer, so don’t have to keep unloading it


Box trailers are excellent for any number of things, but the right features can make it more useful to you. A tilt feature allows you to easily roll things in and out. This is particularly useful with lawn equipment, vehicles and other heavy objects. Checker plated flooring provides some texture and grip. Consider galvanized metal box trailers to ensure long life and prevent rusting. A locking tool box is great to have when you’re transporting vehicles or using the trailer for business activities. Perhaps you don’t want the ladder taking up space in the trailer bed, choose an 8x5 with height adjustable ladder racks.


Although an 8 by 5 or 7 by 4 trailer typically requires only axle, you will want to ensure that your trailer tyres are sturdy enough to withstand the load you are pulling. Choose a two-axle box trailer for heavy duty towing. A spare tyre and spare tyre holder are a must have for any box trailer user. You don’t want to sideline yourself because of a flat or punctured tyre.


Sometimes you will need some help with whatever you’re towing. You may need tie downs and towing straps, brake controls, breakaway kits, sway controls and more. Sway controls help your trailer to stay in line with the towing vehicle to prevent jackknifing or flipping. A breakaway kit is an excellent accessory to have. It causes the trailer to apply its brakes should it disconnect from the towing vehicle. Straps and tie downs ensure that your cargo won’t be going anywhere you don’t want it to.
