4 Types of Car Trailers, Harrisville, Ohio

If you need to tow a vehicle, you need a new trailer that’s up to the challenge. Luckily, there are several different options that can easily transport a variety of cars around town or across the country. Depending on your needs, here are some of the styles you might consider.

What Are the Different Kinds of Car Trailers?

1. Enclosed

Enclosed trailers have walls, a roof, and a door, so they transport vehicles in fully secure environments. They can even be insulated to protect against fluctuating temperatures and humidity. This option is ideal for classic cars or vehicles of high value.

2. Gooseneck

This involves a specialized hitch that attaches directly to the truck bed to offer more towing capacity. It anchors the cargo more securely to help the driver control heavy or large loads, so this option is perfect for towing multiple vehicles.

3. Open

They are generally more affordable and include flooring made of wood or aluminum. These often come in single-car varieties but could offer higher towing capacity if needed.

4. Tilt

Tilt trailers have a back end that uses hydraulics to tilt down to the ground for easy loading and unloading. This option is optimal for classics or sports cars that have low clearances. They often come in one-car formats, but there are also options available for towing multiple vehicles at once.
