Common Signs of Issues with Travis Body & Trailer-brand Trailers

Despite the exceptional quality of Travis trailers, like any mechanical equipment, they may experience wear and tear. Below are some common signs that your trailer may need servicing:

  • Uneven Tire Wear: This could indicate alignment or suspension components issues.
  • Difficulty in Handling: If the trailer pulls to one side or experiences instability, it may be a sign of problems with the hitch or axle alignment.
  • Hydraulic System Malfunctions: For end dump trailers, problems with raising or lowering the dump bed may indicate issues with the hydraulic system.
  • Structural Damage: Visible cracks, rust, or deformities in the trailer’s body or frame should be addressed immediately.
  • Braking Issues: Difficulty stopping or unusual sounds during braking may indicate worn brakes or problems with the brake air system.
