Utility Trailer Parts

Utility trailers can be used for a number of different purposes, including hauling landscaping equipment or bringing material to a job site. At The Trailer Parts Outlet, we want to help every customer find what they need, so if you’re looking for new utility trailer parts for your business, we can provide outstanding options. We offer individual parts for sale, as well as trailer kits that include everything you need to build or repair your trailer.

Utility Trailer Axles

The foundation of any trailer is the axle, and when you shop online with us, you can find axles in every capacity. Most utility trailers use light-duty axles, and we can recommend the best option based on your needs and budget. For example, if you’re building a new single-axle trailer that needs a 3.5K axle, you can find plenty of options in stock, or order one as part of a trailer kit.

What’s most important when choosing your utility trailer axle is that you have the right capacity for whatever it is you’ll be hauling. You don’t want the axle to break or give out while you’re driving down the road, and we can help you identify the right choice. If you’re repairing an older utility trailer, the axle capacity should be located on the plate or sticker that also has the VIN number on it. If you can’t find the capacity, we can assist you with measuring the size of the current axle or its bolt pattern.

When loading your trailer, it’s important to make sure the weight is evenly distributed so that the axle can support whatever it is you’re carrying. Even if the total weight is under the axle’s limit, too much weight directly on top of the axle could compromise its ability to handle the load. This can lead to serious problems as you’re driving to that next job site.

Tires and Wheels

Once you have your axles, you can look at tires and wheels for your utility trailer. The bolt pattern of your axle hub will determine the size of wheel you need, along with the appropriate size of the corresponding tire. You can buy your tires and wheels separately, or you can purchase tire and wheel assemblies (TWAs) that come ready to install on your trailer.

When looking at TWAs, think about what you’ll be carrying in your trailer and where you’ll be driving most of the time. If you’re going to be on paved roads and highways, a standard 6-ply radial tire should be sufficient. If you’re taking your trailer on lots of unpaved or gravel roads, you might need to invest in a different tire (as well as a suspension). Our team can offer recommendations based on the type of roads and surfaces you’ll be towing your trailer on a majority of the time.

Utility Trailer Suspension

Speaking of trailer suspension, you’ll want to be sure you have the proper springs, hanger kits, U-bolts, and more for your utility trailer. A new suspension can help you carry the equipment or cargo you need to, without worrying about the trailer riding too low. If your existing trailer has cracked springs or loose equalizers, it’s best to replace those parts as soon as possible.

You’ll need springs, hanger kits, and more for both sides of the trailer, so keep that in mind when ordering online. You can also learn more about trailer springs by browsing our website.

Lights and Electrical

You can’t tow a trailer down the road without the proper lights, so when you’re building or repairing a utility trailer, it’s imperative that you have the right electrical parts. When you shop with us, you can get tail lights, clearance markers, and more, including the proper connections for attaching the trailer to the tow vehicle. If you need an adapter for a 4-way plug or a 7-way plug, you can find it in our catalog.

We also have trailer brake controllers for any trailers with electric brakes. If you want to convert your electric brakes to hydraulic, we have conversion kits that are easy to install and easy to use.

Trailer Fenders and Jacks

Fenders are designed to help protect your trailer and whatever you’re hauling. Most utility trailers have a single axle, which means you’ll need a single-axle fender. If you have a tandem-axle trailer, we carry tandem-axle fenders as well. You can buy the fender and fender back individually, or you can order them together as part of a kit. We offer smooth steel rolled fenders, tread plate fenders, and many other options, making it easy to find the one that fits your trailer.

Your utility trailer also needs the right jack. Whenever you park the trailer for the night, it needs to be properly supported by a jack that has the appropriate footplate or stand. We carry top-wind and side-wind jacks, and you can order the one that’s right for your trailer capacity.

Utility Trailer Plans and Kits

At The Trailer Parts Outlet, our goal is to make your experience with us as seamless and as stress-free as possible. That’s why we’ve bundled our utility trailer parts together into convenient kits that you can order with the click of a button. We also offer plans and blueprints that can make building a new trailer easier than ever.

Our Utility Trailer Master Plan Kits correspond to the plans that are available in our catalog. Every kit comes with assembled axles, springs, TWAs, and everything else you need for your trailer. You can choose between our Original Series kits, which feature silver mod OEM tires and wheels, and our Midnight Series kits, which feature black mod OEM tires and wheels.

As for our Utility Trailer Plans, you’ll find an assortment of options. If you want to build a single-axle tilt trailer for your business, or you need an off road utility cart trailer, you can order the appropriate plans, along with the corresponding trailer kit. We offer both PDF and paper copies on most of these plans, and you can order one or both to reference when building your new trailer.

Other Parts and Accessories

Each trailer kit contains the parts and accessories you need for your fleet, but if you ever need just one or two parts for your utility trailer, we can help there as well. You might need to replace the coupler on your trailer, or maybe the safety chain broke and you need a new one — whatever the case may be, The Trailer Parts Outlet has you covered. We’re constantly stocking new utility trailer parts, and we can help you find the right fit, no matter if it’s a fender or a spring hanger kit.

If you have any questions about the parts or kits you see in our catalog, or you have a specific inquiry about a product you want to order, please contact us right away. Our goal is to make sure you can get the parts you need in a timely and affordable manner. We ship everything as quickly as possible, so whether you ordered a single part or a complete trailer kit, it should arrive in plenty of time for you to get everything built or repaired as soon as you need.

We look forward to working with you!
