General Purpose Trailers

The majority of General Purpose Trailers (Home, Yard, Car, Builders and the like), share the same undercarriage componentry with many Caravans and Camper Trailers. Unlike Caravans General Trailers are not regularly serviced in particular in the area of lights, suspensions, wheel bearings and brakes however there’s a great deal more to check than just these points, General Trailers have a tendency to crack the chassis or sub structures due to overloading and sustained abuse. Trailers over 2 tonne capacity also require “break away” independent brake system's and this also requires maintenance to ensure it is operative in an emergency situationwhere the trailer disengages from the tow vehicle.
