Aluminum Trailers vs. Steel Trailers
While you need to consider what you will use your trailer for, weight, strength, corrosion-resistance, carbon footprint and cost all play roles in deciding what type of aluminum trailer is best for you.
Aluminum trailers weigh less than steel, which could ultimately affect the load you are capable of carrying. Also, pulling a lighter trailer is more fuel efficient. Steel is known to be strong and durable. However, modern aluminum is tougher than you think. It may not match steel’s strength, but it can certainly hold its own. Rust and corrosion won’t be an issue with aluminum trailers, either. While the initial cost of an aluminum trailer may be higher, in the long run the cost vs. steel will equal out after maintenance and upkeep are factored in.
After looking at these factors, and many more, it becomes clear that an aluminum trailer is a viable option. Of course, it depends on your situation.
