Check the body work

If you do not use your trailer very often then it's a good idea to make sure that you take a good look at your trailer before you use it. The trailer that is left to the mercy of the elements it's likely that it'll suffer from things such as rust as well as wear. You don't want to set off on a trip with a trailer that is not sound attached to your car. You may find yourself stuck in the middle of nowhere without any way of getting there trailer moved to a panel beater or even some mechanic that might be able to repair the damage and send you on your way.

Check the light connection

It is crucial that the actual indicators and brake lights as well as rear lights on the trailer work. You need to be in a position to let those behind you know what you're up to and the trailer will block the actual lights of the automobile.

Look at the tow bar

The whole trailer is going to be attached to your vehicle by its tow bar. It is important that the connector on the trailer and the tow bar on your car are in good shape. If there is anything wrong there then you are likely to lose your own trailer at an inopportune moment and have to go chasing after it down a slope or even paying for the damage the escaping trailer will cause to some other motorist's automobile. This is not something you wish to experience.

Look at the tyres

The actual tyres on a trailer need to be checked and maintained the same as any car's tyres. The actual tread needs to be deep enough and the tyres have to be inflated to the appropriate pressure. Failing to make sure that this is the case is a great recipe for disaster.

Check the license

All street automobiles need to be licensed. It is easy to forget to license things like trailers since they are generally not used on a daily basis. If your trailer's permit isn't up to date you might find your self getting fined whilst going to or from your holiday.

As you can see, there is plenty that you ought to check before you decide to set off on a holiday with your trailer. If you do not check everything you may find yourself in a lot of trouble with the law or with your insurance provider. Rather be safe than sorry and have your trailer correct.
