Frequently Asked Questions

What type of trailer is best for me?

Consider the following when deciding on a trailer among the many manufacturers and model types available on the market –your local dealer should be a big help to you make your decision.


The primary use of your trailer should factor highly in your consideration –a livestock hauler may not be adequate to carrying an auto or dragster but you may not require a large auto carrier with double doors, drive-on, drive-off ramps, fuel ports and an onboard generator to haul your general cargo. We have all the in-demand features and available options in the most popular configurations of cargo trailers, auto and motorsports carriers, Snowmobile trailers and Goosenecks and Fifth Wheels, plus specialty models such as livestock carriers, concession trailers, living quarters, even pet grooming units. We can also build custom trailers to your specifications.


Although economical open trailers are certainly adequate for hauling, you may decide for more security from theft and protection from the elements for your motorcycle, ATV or loose, valuable or perishable cargo that an enclosed trailer provides. However, a sturdy, well-constructed, economical, open utility trailer may be just what you require for transporting lawn and garden equipment and cargo for which exposure to the elements is not a consideration.
Regardless of the purpose you have in mind for your trailer, US Cargo will have a model to suit you. Tell your local dealer what your requirements are and you will find a US Cargo model to fit your needs.

What kind of tow package should I have?

This will depend entirely on the model you purchase. The weight capacities of the tow vehicle, the trailer hitch, ballmount, ball, and safety chains must not be exceeded by the gross trailer weight (GTW). The towing system will only be as strong as the weakest part.
Your dealer will be in the best position to consult with you to ensure you make the best and safest decision
