February 24, 2017 Tip:
When purchasing an enclosed used trailer there are a couple of things you need to bring. A jack to jack the trailer up and a good ear. Jack the trailer up on each side until you get the wheels off the ground on one side. Spin the wheel and listen for bearing noise. If you here noise like metal grinding most likely the bearings are bad and need replaced. Also grab the top of the wheel and try to move it in and out. This is called bump. You should have very little bump. If there is a lot of bump you could have bad bearings or the axle nut may not be tight enough. If you look at a trailer during the day climb inside, close the door and look for light coming through the roof. If its after dark take a flash light and shine it inside the trailer and look for light coming through to the outside.
