How Carriers Ship a Travel Trailer

Ship a Travel TrailerGetting quotes to ship a travel trailer can be tricky because a travel trailer isn’t actually a vehicle. Remember, when it comes to auto transport, companies ship automobiles – cars, trucks, SUV’s, things that move themselves.

Most vehicles can fit on a standard carrier thanks to their size, but a travel trailer is much different. They tend to be harder to ship properly and effectively which often means it’s more expensive to ship a travel trailer than a car. Of course, it’s not impossible to find a company to ship your travel trailer, but you need to be prepared for what may come.

So how do carriers ship a travel trailer?

A travel trailer cannot be shipped on a standard open auto transport carrier. Now, open carriers are the main carriers on the road and they haul a majority of the vehicles that are shipped today. And a travel trailer cannot fit on one, so they have to be shipped another way. and that way is usually via flatbed transportation.

But even that comes with some problems, notably how heavy the trailer is and also how it’s going to get onto the truck. Most vehicles are driven onto and off of a carrier for loading and unloading. With a trailer, you can’t move it by itself, so you have to get creative unless you ship the truck that hauls it as well.

Of course, some companies will just haul your travel trailer behind their own truck. That’s one method of shipping it, but that’s not really shipping it. Really, that’s just hiring someone else to haul it for you. Which is fine, we’re not judging in any way. Of course it does put wear on the trailer and the tires, but for many that’s perfectly fine.

Ultimately, what you want to do is speak to an agent. They can give you more information about how travel trailers are shipped and also answer questions you may have. They should be a go-to resource for you, so make sure to utilize them.
