Shipping travel trailers is no easy task. We know what it takes to ship your trailer from point A to point B in a safe and efficient manner. Our years of experience has taught us to take into account the following information:

 

  • Type of Trailer - Is your trailer a Fifth Wheel, Toy-Hauler, Double-Decker? The type of trailer you own will give us a rough idea of its size and weight but we always recommend verifying measurements.

 

Do you have an oversize trailer? Check out our Heavy Hauling & Transport page

 

  • Condition of Trailer - Is your trailer in operable condition? Although we can transport running and non-running travel trailers, its condition must be discussed to ensure we dispatch a carrier accordingly.

 

  • Transport Equipment - Trailers cannot be loaded on regular carriers. The type of trailer will determine whether your unit is transported in a low boy, step deck or if it will be hitched and towed.

 

  • Pickup Location - Are we picking up from a residence or business? Our carriers need an ample location to safely and legally load your trailer. If your pickup location is not carrier friendly, we will kindly ask that you meet our driver at a nearby location with enough ample space.

 

  • Route - Where is your trailer travelling? We need to make sure we have all the details of the route correct. Any road restrictions that prohibit your trailer from travelling through must be avoided and alternate routes need to be assigned.

 

  • Delivery Location - Are we delivering at residence or business? As mentioned at pickup, our carriers need an ample location to safely and legally unload your trailer. Again, we will kindly ask that your meet our driver at a nearby location with enough ample space. 

PREPARE YOUR RV AND FIFTH WHEEL TRAILER FOR SHIPPING

 

We've put together this list of recommended items to check on your travel trailer and RV to ensure a safe and risk free transport. 

 

Trailer Tires: Just like the tires on your vehicle, the tires on a trailer must be in good shape. Inspect all tires on your trailer for any wear and tear that could possibly cause a blowout or loss of air. Each tire must have and maintain the proper amount of air at all times. Check your manufacturer's tire pressure recommendations and use a tire gauge to ensure tires are at correct levels.

 

Trailer Lights: Check your trailer lights to ensure they are working properly. Inspect each light ( brake, turn, clearance, license plate etc.) for any damage and proper mounting. Working trailer lights do not only prevent traffic fines but also aid other drivers on the road.

 

Trailer Wheels & Axles: Inspect the wheels and axles on your trailer for proper lubrication. It is recommended that bearings, bearing seals and bearing cups on a trailer be greased every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Following these recommendations for maintenance will help prevent loss of wheel, which could result in loss of control, an accident and serious injury.

 

Trailer Weight: Do NOT overload your trailer. Check the gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) of your trailer to prevent overloading. The gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) is the total mass of a trailer that is loaded to capacity, including the weight of the trailer itself, plus cargo, that a trailer is rated to tow by the manufacturer. Therefore, if you have a trailer with a GTWR of 2,000 pounds and your cargo weighs 2,500 pounds, your trailer is now overloaded and at risk of damage.

 

Trailer Hitch: All trailers have a designated hitch type (Class 1-5) depending on their gross trailer weight (GTW). It is important that your trailer have the proper hitch type to safely tow.

 

  • Class 1- Up to 2,000lbs. gross trailer weight rating with a 200lbs. maximum trailer tongue weight
  • Class 2- Up to 3,500lbs. gross trailer weight rating with a 300lbs. maximum trailer tongue weight
  • Class 3- Up to 6,000lbs. gross trailer weight rating with a 600lbs. maximum trailer tongue weight
  • Class 4- Up to 10,000lbs. gross trailer weight rating with a 1000lbs. maximum trailer tongue weight
  • Class 5- Up to 12,000lbs. gross trailer weight rating with a 1200lbs. maximum trailer tongue weight

 

Personal Items: Any personal items inside your trailer or RV must be properly secured. Sometimes even the most minimal movement on the trailer can cause items that are not properly mounted or secured to fall off and break. Make sure cabinet doors are closed, locked if possible, and any items that are not mounted, be removed or placed in a secure area in the trailer.

 

Trailer Power Supply - Disable your trailer's power supply. Components in your trailer can accidently be engaged while in transit resulting in possible power drain.

 

Hazardous materials - Gas tanks, propane tanks, ammunition or any possible dangerous materials should be removed from the trailer. Our carriers can be fined if such items are found in the trailer while in transport.
