A utility trailer is attached to the hitch of a truck or other heavy-duty hauling automobile. Utility trailers are one of the most common types of trailers people invest in due to their versatility. They feature an open-bed rather than an enclosed space which makes utility trailers ideal for transporting a wide variety of materials and goods. While there are many uses for a utility trailer, here are some of the most popular ways people use their high-quality Kaufman utility trailer.

1. Using a Utility Trailer for Lawn Care Equipment

Utility trailers are commonly used in landscaping businesses. They are used to haul lawn care equipment, such as mowers and trimmers. Some trailers are even outfitted with a small deck, which can be used to hold the equipment while it is being transported. This is a helpful feature, as it keeps the equipment off of the ground and prevents any damage that might occur if it were to be transported on the back of a truck.

Kaufman utility trailers are available in Standard and Deluxe models. Standard utility trailers include all-tubing tailboard, sealed beam lights, steps on the fenders, and reflective tape. Deluxe models offer the same features as the standard model with the addition of upgraded 15″ premium West Lake radial tires, square tubing top rails, and LED sealed beam lights. Regardless of which model you choose, both feature spring assist on the landscape gate which makes loading and unloading seamless.

2. Carrying Vehicles or Small Tractors

Utility trailers are commonly used to transport vehicles and small tractors. Kaufman’s flatbed style utility trailer is one of our most versatile products. There are adjustable loading ramps that slide in from the rear of the trailer. Since the width of the ramps are adjustable, they can securely haul a variety of small equipment, such as a narrow 4-wheeler, small garden tractor, or a full width pickup truck. Stake pockets are convenient for tying down your equipment or you can use them to mount removable wood sides.

3. Using a Utility Trailer to Pick Up Building Supplies

Utility trailers are often used by construction workers and homeowners who are taking on a home improvement project. Utility trailers make picking up building materials a rather easy job. You can easily transport your materials, such as lumber and drywall, from your local home improvement store to your home or construction site. Oftentimes, flatbed utility trailers are a popular choice among homeowners and construction workers because they feature a floor that is even with the top of the frame. This makes it easier to lift supplies into the trailer using a forklift and get the forks back out. Our utility trailer easily accommodates wood sides, which come in handy for hauling away old roofing material and debris from a work site to the landfill. Plus, they can be towed behind a car or truck, making it easy to take them wherever they are needed.

4. Hauling ATVs & Recreational Vehicles

Whether you are an avid outdoor sportsman, a hunter, or enjoy camping trips, a trailer makes it so much easier to transport all your gear from your house to your destination. You can easily haul everything you need without having to worry.

Kaufman utility trailers are available in single axle models, which are perfect for hauling lighter loads, such as camping or fishing gear. We also offer tandem axle utility trailers which are suitable for hauling recreational vehicles such as ATVs, golf carts, dirt bikes, or motorcycles. Both single and tandem axle models feature a full-width landscape gate to make loading and unloading easy. Plus, the gate ensures your belongings are safely secured on the journey ahead.

Regardless of what your outdoor needs are, our trailers are built to last, affordable, and customizable. It’ll make transporting all your gear a breeze, and it’ll help keep you organized and prepared for whatever adventure awaits.

5. Moving Furniture and Appliances

Make your move easier than ever with the help of a utility trailer. Furniture dollies easily roll right up to the full-width mesh gate on the trailer for easy loading and unloading. Utility trailers can be a cheaper and easier option than hiring a moving company. Plus, you can use them over and over again for future moves, which makes them a great asset. 

In addition, you can haul more and larger items than you could with a pickup including dressers, washing machines, dining tables, and more. If you are cleaning out your house and need to transport a large amount of furniture or appliances to the recycling center, a utility trailer makes it so much easier to haul and easily unload your belongings.

With easy trailer to hitch hookups and durability, our utility trailers are the perfect choice for an array of jobs.
