How Often Should I Have My Trailer Serviced? 

Investing in a trailer signifies your commitment to durability and longevity. Just like your vehicle, regular maintenance and inspections are essential to ensure the continued functionality of your trailer. The National Trailer and Towing Association (NTTA) advises that for average use, you should schedule a trailer service every 6000 miles or every 6 months, whichever occurs first.

In this article, we will outline the step-by-step process involved in trailer servicing and introduce you to Alaska Trailer's expert services—guaranteeing your trailers remain in optimal condition.
