According to Google dictionary, optimization is the act of making best or most effective use of a situation or resource. In our case, we are talking about optimizing trailers.


A trailer is a good equipment to have. There are many kinds of trailers with different intended uses. There is the flatbed utility trailer for transporting stuff. With this trailer, you don’t have to hire a mover every time you need to transport something too big for your car. There is also the camper trailer which is used, you guessed it, for camping and have a great time with families or friends. Although, some people turn it into a permanent domicile. You could say the camping never ends for them. Anyways, we shouldn’t talk too much about others’ preferred kind of living.


So going back on topic, what does it mean to optimize a trailer? What is even there to optimize? The answer is simple. It is all about making the trailer better at its job. A trailer used for hauling cargo can benefit from higher load capacity. A camper trailer can use some improved shock absorption to protect the important components inside.


Trailers have simple suspension systems. When we talk about the upgrade, it revolves around replacing the springs of the trailer. The springs can be stiffened and strengthened to improve loading capacity of utility trailers. In the case of camper trailers, some owners replace original springs with air springs to ride comfort. The suspension can also be modified to adjust the ride height of the trailer for better stability or ability to traverse over unpaved roads.

The simplicity of trailer suspensions makes upgrades more straightforward and affordable. If you feel like your trailer can use an improvement,  a suspension upgrade is a wise option to consider.
