Utility Trailer Weight Limits

Utility Trailer Weight Limits - Towing

If you plan to use a utility trailer to haul items from place to place, you need to know the weight limits for each type. Adding too much weight to your trailer can damage it and could even cause you to lose your load as you are hauling it. You could even damage your car or truck if it is not properly equipped.

How To Find Utility Trailer Weight Limits

– Check the tongue of the trailer for a metal plate which contains information about the trailer. This is one of the most common places to find the weight limit.

– Consult the user manual that came with your utility trailer. If you bought the trailer new, this may be easy to find. If you bought the trailer used and did not get the manual with it, you may be able to find it online. Use a search engine to search for the make, model, and size of your trailer, and you may be able to find the utility trailer weight limits listed there.

– Contact the dealer or manufacturer of the trailer and ask about the weight limitations. Most manufacturers have websites, and dealers are often happy to answer questions over the phone.

– Look on the title for the trailer. When you take the trailer to get tags, you need to have a title or registration. You can often find the utility trailer weight limits listed on the trailer or registration.

If you are not able to find the exact weight limits for your trailer, you may want to consult an expert or even another trailer dealer for advice.

You may also be able to calculate the limit yourself by determining the weight and length of your trailer as well as the axle rating. You never want to risk putting too much weight on your trailer and damaging it.
