Convenience, Comfort and Safety! Customise Your Trailer and Get All These
When you buy a trailer, it will come with stock features designed to meet your local safety requirements (that is if you have any) and your budget. The manufacturer has a better chance of keeping the price low if they fit ordinary equipment that can perform the basic functions. Thankfully, the manufacturer's intentions do not define your destiny with the trailer you buy. You can go for a couple of upgrades and fine-tuning accessories to customise your trailer. These accessories not only improve the outlook of your trailer but also improve other parameters such as safety, comfort and convenience. Here are the must-have upgrades for your trailer.
Sealed Light Emitting Diodes (LED) Lighting
Taillights bear the brunt of nearly everything that your trailer encounters. They come face to face with the harmful elements in every situation, including scorching sun rays, runoff water from the rain and unending dust when you go off-road. Therefore, you should your tail lights some slack when you see them fading after some time. The sad part is that lighting malfunctions will creep after these harmful elements strike. Some of the predicaments you will encounter include broken bulb filaments and corroded light sockets.
Upgrading to sealed LED light will save you all this trouble. The best upgrade comes with a wiring harness that secures the cabling from splashes of water. With LEDs, you will not experience broken filaments despite the persistent bouncing and dunking that the trailer lights experience.
Trailer Hitch Lighting
The hitch is the link between the trailer and the vehicle you use for towing. It's difficult to load or mount the trailer to the vehicle whenever it's dark, and there is no guarantee that you will always have a functional flashlight with you at all times. Certainly, it would help to have some lighting accessories around the hitch. Your best bet is going for removable LED tap lighting that fits temporarily around the hitch when you need it. The lights come with magnetic plates that hold onto the trailer when you want to use them. You can attach them to the interior sections so that they do not fall off when you are driving off-road.
It helps if you have adjustable tie-down spots to help you anchor any load that you carry in the trailer. The best upgrade here is a tracking system that you can bolt to the floor of the trailer. It allows you to fit in various kinds of ratchet straps or fitting points for rope anchors.
