Finding the Right Auto Accessories

Hello, my name is Francis and this is my auto accessories blog. Last year, I purchased a vintage camper van. I had always dreamt of owning a camper van so I could drive around Australia, exploring the towns, cities and the countryside. However, when I finally took ownership of the van, I quickly realised why it had been for sale at such a low price. The van was missing a lot of accessories such as the original gear stick, the wing mirrors and the seat covers. Thankfully, my friend who is an auto expert, taught me how to find the perfect accessories for the van.

3 Useful Flat Top Trailer Undertray Accessories

by Roger Jackson

If you're about to buy a new flat top trailer, then it's worth thinking about adding accessories before you choose which model to buy. Some trailers come with ready-built accessories; you can add them to others when you place an order.

Many people opt to add extras to the undertray area of their trailer. These accessories sit under the trailer's tray, so they don't take up any room or get in the way; however, they can make your trailer more useful and versatile. Read on to learn about some useful options.

1. Undertray Toolboxes

You can fit undertray toolboxes to flat top trailers. These boxes sit at the side of the trailer's wheels. You usually have space for several toolboxes.

These boxes are firmly attached to the underside of the trailer's bed; they are also usually lockable. So, they give you a secure way to carry tools and other valuable items when you're using your trailer.

You don't have to worry about someone stealing tools from the trailer's bed when you aren't around. You also don't need to find a way to secure smaller items on the open tray when you're on the road. You can simply lock them in a box.

2. Undertray Legs

While flat top trailers are strong and stable, they might need some extra support when you are loading or unloading items. Trays can wobble and feel unstable if their only support is their wheels.

You might have an accident if the tray isn't stable and something rolls and hits you when you're standing on it. You might lose or damage some items if they roll off the tray because it has a slight tilt.

If you need a more stable trailer, then consider buying a model with drop-down legs. These legs fold away under the tray. You simply unfold them when you need to use them. They'll give your trailer extra stability when you need it.

3. Undertray Ramps

If you'll load wheeled vehicles, machines or pieces of equipment onto your trailer, then undertray ramps are a good extra to have. These ramps sit at the back of the trailer under its tray. You pull them out to use them.

Ramps are also useful if you'll load heavy materials onto the trailer. For example, you can set them up so that you can use a wheelbarrow to carry loads.

To find out more about your options, ask flat top trailer manufacturers or suppliers for advice.
