Trailers will often make noise when you are towing them, but it is important to know the difference between ‘normal’ noise levels and levels which could be a cause for concern. With a fairly basic design, highly varied loading, and limited suspension it is not uncommon for your trailer to skip over a bump when it is empty or make the occasional groan when fully loaded, but sometimes those noises are the trailer trying to tell you something is wrong!

Today we're talking winches - how they can improve your trailer's usability, and the pros and cons of having one!
