Single Vs. Tandem Axle Enclosed Trailers: What’s the Difference?

When you need a new enclosed trailer, you need one that fits your budget, is quality-built, and meets your hauling needs. As Canada’s largest trailer dealership, Factory Outlet Trailers is here to help you find the perfect trailer. To help you understand which style of enclosed trailer would best suit your needs, we will break down the differences between tandem and single-axle enclosed trailers. Keep reading to find out more! 

Understanding Single and Tandem Axles

When it comes to enclosed trailers, your axle configuration can impact not only your load capacity but also the overall cost of the trailer. Let’s break this down:

Tandem axle-enclosed trailers are typically more expensive than single axle trailers as they can haul heavier loads. Tandem axles, as the name suggests, feature two sets of wheels/axles on either side of the trailer. This configuration gives the trailer greater stability and traction, especially at highway speeds.

In comparison, single-axle trailers only have one set of wheels connected to an axle. Single-axle enclosed trailers typically have a better turning radius than tandem axle options, improving maneuverability. Additionally, single axle-enclosed trailers tend to be the more affordable option and also require less maintenance. 

Depending on your hauling needs, tow vehicle’s hauling capacity, and budget, a single or tandem axle enclosed trailer may be your best choice. However, if you need help determining which would suit your needs, Factory Outlet Trailers’ team is here to help! Our knowledgeable team can walk you through your options and assist you in deciding between these two setups. Whether you already know the exact style of enclosed trailer you need or require some guidance in your decision, Factory Outlet Trailers has you covered!
