Load Vehicles Onto Your Trailer Properly - HOW?

  1. 1. Proper Load Distribution On A Trailer
  2. 2. It does not matter if you have to haul camping or hiking gear, fishing boat & equipment, heavy goods, or 4 to 5 cars at the same time with your trailer, the foremost & vital thing that you need to take into consideration always is that you must equalize the load properly.
  3. 3. Besides that, preparing both the tow vehicle and the trailer to ensure a safe journey is quintessential. The manner in which you keep the load, particularly cars, on your hauling trailer would substantially dictate how your truck moves throughout the journey.
  4. 4. Main Reasons For Trailer Accidents
  5. 5. Nearly every year in USA, multiple cases of accidents associated with trailers are reported, and the prime reasons behind these mishaps are fishtailing & swaying. A trailering setup fishtails mainly due to insufficient percentage of tongue weight compared to gross weight of the trailer. In order to avoid fishtailing, the tongue weight should be about 10 to 15 percent of the GVWR. However, it is to be noted that a 5th wheel can increase the same requirement to nearly 25 percent.
  6. 6. When it comes to swaying, the only way to reduce it is by placing the load close to and ahead of the trailer’s axle. Besides that, each and every car must be effectively tied down to the trailer bed with the help of suitable ratcheting strips. Doing so would prevent them from shifting side to side or front and back when you are driving, be it a 5 car hauler trailer or a 6 car one.
  7. 7. Problems Related To In Cornering & Hard Braking
  8. 8. When towing a cargo as extremely heavy as 4 or 5 cars simultaneously, problems associated with in cornering and hard braking are bound to surface without the right precautions. Hauling heavy loads automatically increases the tongue weight, which in turn, reduces loading on front axle when steering & braking are needed the most. However, you can follow several tips to counteract these phenomena. First, load the bulkiest of cars onto the trailer and then securely tie them at several angles. Take care that you begin with the facade portion of the trailer and then place ⅗th of total weight before the front axle. In other words, it is important to evenly distribute the weight from one side to another.
  9. 9. UNDERSTANDING LOADED TRAILER WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION
  10. 10. In order to comprehend the distribution of weight on a trailer bed, we would check out an appropriate example. Let’s say that a properly loaded trailer which is 18 feet in length has a wheelbase of 146-inch and weighs nearly 2200 pounds. It would normally have a tongue weight equal to or less than 300 pounds. Nevertheless, the rear portion of the tow truck can squat because of tongue weight, and that would decrease exit angle as well as rear ground clearance. The front part would get lightened too, and there will be less contact between the road and the front tires, leading to uneven braking and stability.
  11. 11. The best way to prevent non-uniform load distribution on a trailer is by equalising the load on all four tires using air bags. It would remove squat, restore balance and also level & stabilise the vehicle.
