8x5 Trailers

Pictures displayed are for illustrative purpose only & may show more or less features than standard.

An 8 x 5 trailer is one of the most versatile and useful vehicles to have for your business or around your home. Perfect for moving those slightly larger loads that won’t fit in a 6 or 7ft long trailer, an 8 x 5 trailer might be just what you have been looking for.

Why choose an 8 x 5 trailer

Some of the top reasons people choose to buy 8 x 5 trailers include:

  • Convenient size

The 8 x 5 trailers get their name from their size, being 8 feet long by 5 feet wide. Converted into metric measurements, this makes 8 x 5 trailers around 2.4 metres long by 1.5 metres wide, which is plenty big enough to carry standard loads for various tradespeople, professionals and weekend campers. From sheets of plasterboard and plywood to plumbing tools, military equipment and farming supplies, whatever your industry is, you’ll be able to conveniently carry your load in an 8 x 5 trailer.

  • Easy to manoeuvre

An 8 x 5 trailer is one of the most versatile models you can buy. Any car can tow it, and there are no complicated procedures for backing the trailer. For professionals just looking for a handy extension to their ute or a flatbed tray, an 8 x 5 trailer is the number one choice to tow behind a work vehicle. It's no wonder that the 8 x 5 trailer is one of the most popular models in our entire trailer range.

  • Affordable

Especially when compared to double axle models, 8 x 5 trailers come at a much lower price point while still offering impressive load capabilities. Their maintenance is also easier on the wallet, as there is only one axle and one set of wheels to maintain. Buy your 8 x 5 trailer from Modern Trailers for the best bang for your buck.
