The 4 Worst Mistakes You Can Make When Towing Enclosed Trailers

The 4 Worst Mistakes You Can Make When Towing Enclosed Trailers

The holidays are here, and that means the roads are full of people towing their enclosed trailers. If you’re planning to be one of them, be sure to avoid these four common towing mistakes. You’ll enjoy your vacation much more, and so will those driving behind you.

  1. Not knowing your ratings: Your vehicle can only haul and carry so much weight. Overloading enclosed trailers and tow vehicles can cause a multitude of problems such as broken suspensions, failing brakes, blown-out tires or overheated transmissions.
  2. Not knowing the local regulations: Restrictions and towing laws vary from state to state. While most states require safety chains that connect the tow vehicle to the trailer, and taillights on trailers, some states also require additional rear-view and side mirrors, or special braking equipment. Some also differ on the maximum towing speed, the number of vehicles you are allowed to tow, and maximum trailer width.
  3. Improper loading: A trailer is difficult to control if it is off balance. Ensure that your cargo is distributed evenly, with about 60% of the total weight in front of the axle. However, make sure it is not too far forward.
  4. Incorrect tire pressure: When enclosed trailers haven’t been used for a while, the tires probably need inflating. Towing a fully loaded trailer with underinflated tires is extremely dangerous – the underinflated tires generate more friction, which can lead to possible rollovers and blowouts.
