Here are few tips to guide in your purchase depending on the type of trailers you want:

1. Nature of the Floor: When going for a purchase, as you step into a trailer check the floor. What type of material is it made of? Is it a plywood or aluminum floor? Is it durable? Can it stand the rest if time year after year? Is it made of a conductive material in cases of summertime?


2. Nature of the ceiling or Roof: A small leakage in the trailer can cost a thousand of dollars, so make sure you check the quality of the roof.
