How to Transport a Trailer

Transporting a camper doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By following a few simple steps, successful delivery is as easy as one, two, three.

 

  1. Take note of the details of your travel trailer transport needs. This will include the dimensions (height, length, width, and weight) and any issues the camper may have (poor wheel conditions, unstable exterior items, etc.).
  2. Compare camper hauling services to identify which service is best for your travel trailer. The two most common service types are a tow-away trailer transport service and a flatbed camper hauling service.
  3. Choose a carrier and shipping rate that works for you. Once you know what you’re looking for in terms of a service type, you’re ready to send potential travel trailer movers the details of your camper shipping needs. From there, you can compare trailer transporters both on service as well as the quotes they provide.

Camper Delivery Services

Regardless of which type of trailer transport you choose, be sure that your trailer is empty or that everything inside is thoroughly secured.

 

Tow-Away Trailer Transport Services: Tow-away services for campers are often what you think of when you think of trailer transport. A heavy-duty pickup or heavy haul truck will hitch the travel trailer to their truck and tow it to its destination. While tow-away trailer transport is often the cheapest way to ship a trailer, you may also run into more road wear, especially to the camper’s tires.

 

Flatbed Camper Hauling: While travel trailers can’t fit on a typical car carrier, a transporter with a flatbed can be a great way to transport multiple campers or a travel trailer that would not be safe to tow-away. While flatbed camper hauling can provide more protection, it can often be the more expensive transport option.

 

Both of these common transport options require the proper equipment which is directly related to the dimensions and type of camper you need to be moved. This makes the dimensions of the trailer the most important detail you can provide your travel trailer movers.

How Much Does it Cost to Ship a Travel Trailer

The cost to ship a camper depends on the distance, the size and weight of the trailer, and any specific needs for secure and safe shipping. The average cost to ship a travel trailer is $3.39 per mile under 100 miles, and an average of $0.95 per mile under 1000 miles.
