Size and types of trailer boxes

The size of a trailer box varies depending on the manufacture and model of the box, as well as the type of trailer. Trailer boxes usually have a rectangular base with an average length between 3.5 and 4.5 meters. Some manufacturers typically maintain a width of between 1.8 and 2.1 meters and a height of between 1.3 and 1.7 meters, but these two vary by manufacturer. Most trailer boxes have these conventional dimensions. However, a trailer box created specifically for transporting particularly large goods may have larger dimensions.

In addition to these typical measurements, there are other aspects of a trailer box to consider. For example, these are usually fitted with a canvas cover, either optional or standard. This tarpaulin cover is usually 4 to 5 meters long and 1.5 to 2 meters wide, and hangs over the top of the box. Its function is to protect the contents of the box from the weather.

Finally, there are more elements that influence the size of a trailer box. To increase strength and durability, some manufacturers offer towing boxes with a reinforced frame. To increase corrosion resistance, a reinforced structure is added to the top of the box. In some situations, this reinforced structure can result in an overall larger box. Therefore, when choosing the size of a trailer box, it is critical to consider its reinforced construction.


Materials that may be damaged if they come into contact with water should be stored in a dry box, as this is a safe container. Food, chemicals, electronics, medicines, and other items that could be damaged by moisture are often stored in these boxes. There are different types of dry boxes, each with a different function.

Dry boxes have a specially constructed shape to prevent water seepage and are composed of water-resistant materials, often plastic or metal. These containers can be used to store items in both normal and cold environments. These containers can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and sizes, including hermetically sealed containers, shipping containers, containers with absorbent pads, containers with protective covers, containers with welders, and containers with thermometers.
