Customer Testimonial:

My company, All Area Trucking, had my trailer repaired at NY-NJ Trailer Supply and their work was great. They did the job right the first time around. I will return for more work in the future. If you’re local or out-of-state, they are worth the trip.

Towing Equipment Owners
: Make sure all operators of your equipment read and understand this information before towing. Save for reference. This will help you properly select, use and maintain your towing equipment. Refer to owner’s manuals for your tow ehicle, trailer, and other parts of your towing system. Learn the capabilities and limitations of each part. 

NY-NJ Trailer Supply also carries The Trailer Handbook in our store. This book is a great resource for individuals to understand trailers and towing safety for recreational and commercial purposes.   

GROSS TRAILER WEIGHT
and TONGUE WEIGHT are two of the most important items to consider. THESE WEIGHTS MUST NEVER EXCEED THE LOWEST RATING OF ANY PART OF YOUR TOWING SYSTEM. GROSS TRAILER WEIGHT is the weight of the trailer plus all cargo. Measure GROSS TRAILER WEIGHT by putting the fully loaded trailer on a vehicle scale. TONGUE WEIGHT is the downward force exerted on the ball by the trailer coupler. Measure TONGUE WEIGHT with the fully loaded trailer on a level surface. The coupler must be at its normal towing height. Use a commercial scale or a bathroom scale. Set up the bathroom scale as shown for heavy tongue weights.

DANGER
DO NOT MODIFY PRODUCT. TOWING VEHICLE MUST BE IN GOOD CONDITION. USE ONLY FOR TRAILER TOWING AND/OR ATTACHMENT OF CEQUENT PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS INC. ACCESSORIES. DO NOT EXTEND ORIGINAL STRUCTURE. DO NOT TOW ONE TRAILER BEHIND ANOTHER, WHICH MAY CAUSE LOSS OF CONTROL. FAILURE TO HEED WARNINGS AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH, VEHICLE CRASH, AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. DO NOT OVERLOAD ANY PART OF YOUR TOWING SYSTEM.

MAINTENANCE
Checking your maintenance schedule and ensuring that you are up-to-date is something that every trailer owner / operator can do to dramatically improve the likelihood of safe equipment use.
