Does your box trailer sometimes go weeks or months without use? If so, do you have a garage or some other protected indoor space that you can use to store your trailer in the meantime? Box trailers are typically quite heavy-duty, well-built enough to handle the wear and tear of the highway and durable enough to stand the test of time. However, if you leave your trailer parked in a driveway for months, without a cover, you are essentially leaving it to the mercy of the elements. Investing in a box trailer cover from Sydney’s NL Products is a good way to make sure that your box trailer is still in great shape whenever you need to use it next.
The Effects of the Elements on Box Trailers
It’s true that box trailers don’t need the same level of care and protection that, say, motor homes might demand. When you leave a motor home outside for the winter, or even just sitting outside exposed to UV light for an extended period, the elements can take a distinct aesthetic toll on the exterior of the vehicle. The colour of the fiberglass can fade, the paint can chip, and the overall resale value of the vehicle can plummet as a result.
Since box trailers are not as hefty of an investment in the first place as motor homes are, it’s easy to feel that they don’t really need protection from the elements. Protecting the resale value is, admittedly, less of a priority with a trailer than it is with a caravan.
Still, buying a trailer cover is a good idea to protect your trailer from the damage that the elements can cause. Over time, UV exposure can start to break down the paint or finish on the exterior of the trailer. This degradation can, in turn, begin to expose more of the trailer to the elements, which can lead not only to aesthetic damage but also to more serious structural damage. Rusting and corrosion of the screws and bolts that hold the trailer together—or even of parts of the door apparatus—are also problems that can arise if you leave your trailer outside for an extended period. On a long enough timeline, the elements will just wear out your trailer, creating leaks, damaging the door and ultimately making it difficult to use the trailer reliably.
