Question:How can I purchase an Iron Eagle Trailer?
Answer:Iron Eagle trailers are sold through authorized dealers only. You simply click on the Local Dealer page and fill in the fields. You will get information on the authorized dealer closest to your area including their address, phone number, and a map to their facility.
Question:What vehicles can tow utility trailers or flatbed trailers?
Answer:Just about any vehicle can tow a trailer. Even jeeps and minivans! All you need is a receiver hitch and taillight wiring installed on your vehicle.
Question:Why is tube frame better than other frame material for trailer construction?
Answer:Contrary to what competing dealers may tell you, Steel frames will fail due to interior rust in salt water applications only. The reason competing dealers say this is because they can't sell comparable tube frame trailers at a competitive price Rectangle tubing is lighter and stronger per foot than other standard frame materials. This is the primary reason that the best boat trailer manufacturers use rectangular tubing for their trailer frames. Walk through any boat dealership and you'll see. Tubing also looks much nicer as a finished product, and it makes a perfect conduit for the trailer wiring.
Question:Why is an extra long tongue, on my trailer frame, better?
Answer:The tongue length is a critical component for trailer stability. The longer the tongue, the easier it is for the towing vehicle to steer the trailer. All of our trailer tongues (except for the Economax) are about 12" to 18" longer than most utility trailers on the road today. Shorter tongues require 15% of the trailer weight to be on the ball. Longer tongues only need 10%! That means less weight on your car and more on the trailer. Longer tongues also make for easier backing. There's also enough room to mount a storage box if desired. Longer tongues are slightly more expensive to implement and change in the trailer design is necessary. These are the reasons that many trailer manufactures still use the cheaper two-piece, short tongue design.
Question:Will plywood or sheetrock fit in my 4 X 8 utility trailer?
Answer:Yes, all of our 4' wide trailers that we manufacture are oversized. The interior width and length is one inch wider and longer than a standard sheet of plywood or sheetrock. Most 4 X 8 trailers are measured to the outside of the frame and once the plywood walls are installed, the interior width is 47 inches or less. What a waste.
Question:How do I maintain wheel bearings?
Answer:This is simple. All of our trailers come standard with EZ-Lube axle spindles. All you have to do is remove the rubber plug on the wheel bearing dust cap and using a standard grease gun, pump fresh grease into the bearings and that's it. It takes about 3 minutes, once or twice a year. If you don't have a grease gun, just stop by a Les Schwabs or Jiffy-Lube and let them do it. It's that easy.
Question:What is MDO?
Answer:MDO stands for Medium Density Overlay. It is high quality exterior plywood that has a composite overlay on both sides. MDO is the material the highway department uses to make traffic signs. It is also the stuff that U-Haul rental trailers have as siding. We prime and paint the paneling with oil-based paint before we install it into the trailer. The result is an extremely durable, rust-free and lightweight siding that will last for decades.
Question:What is the capacity of the trailers?
Answer:The capacity of the trailers depends on the size of the trailer. Every trailer that we manufacture has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of at least 2995 lbs. The empty weight of the trailers vary between sizes. (400 lbs to 800 lbs) For example, the 4 X 8 flatbed trailer has an empty weight of 455 lbs, the GVWR is 2995 lbs. 2995 - 455 = 2540 lbs of capacity! That is equivalent to about a cubic yard of gravel. That's more weight than a 1-ton truck is rated for!
Question:Can the trailers be covered?
Answer:Yes, they can. There are fitted covers for every size of utility trailer that we manufacture. This accessory comes complete with removable bow slats that keep the center high and the rain out. They have elastic cords built into the cover that are placed over each tie-down hook on the trailer sides. The tarp material is made of a vinyl based coating with a polyester fabric core. The result is a super tough cover that is water tight, tear resistant, UV resistant and custom fitted! Ask your local dealer for details.
|Why Choose Iron Eagle?|
|QUALITY; We don't cut corners.|

What to look for in a trailer
|If you are considering the purchase of a new or used trailer, this page will be a big help. You may own the trailer you purchase today for decades so a little education now will pay off big in the long run.|
|Over the years we have found that customers typically are not sure how to evaluate a trailer. They know what size they want and the approximate weight capacity and that's about it. This page will help you sort out some of the less obvious aspects for your consideration.|
|Another good source of information is provided by Synthesis Engineering. They have an excellent article titled What makes a good trailer design (http://www.synthx.com/articles/trailer-design.html)|
Here are a few things to keep in mind that you probably haven't thought of that are common among trailer owners:
|Use the following list as a reference guide. This list applies to all trailers new & used.|
|What the frame is constructed of makes a big difference in the overall integrity of the trailer. There are three main shapes of steel that are used in the construction of a trailer frame. From best to worst they are Box Tubing, Channel Iron, and Angle Iron. Box tubing has the best properties. It resists twisting and flexing better than any other frame material. You can easily see for yourself. Just stand on a rear corner of any trailer, even a flatbed dual-axle car hauler and watch what happens. If the frame twists and flexes a surprising amount, it's most likely Angle Iron. If it twists and flexes a noticeable amount than it's probably Channel Iron. If it does not twist and flex even if you jump on it than it's a Box Tube frame. Repeated flexing of weld joints can cause welds to fatigue and crack over time. Choose Box Tube frame construction or at least a combination Box Tube & Channel Iron frame. Pass on the Angle Iron Frame. Tube frames cost slightly more than Angle frames but the benefits far outweigh the cost difference.|
|The tongue length is a critical component for trailer stability. The longer the tongue, the easier it is for the towing vehicle to steer the trailer. Shorter tongues require up to 15% of the trailer weight to be on the ball. Longer tongues only need around 10%. That means less weight on your car and more on the trailer. Longer tongues also make for easier backing.|
|Very important item to inspect on a used trailer. The coupler is what attaches the trailer to your vehicle. Usually it's welded on so a damaged or wore out one can be expensive to replace. Make sure it's not twisted or bent and that it attaches securely without sloppiness.|
|Trailer taillight wires must pass through the frame at some point. Be sure that there are grommets to protect those wires from chafing on metal or a short circuit is inevitable.|
|Taillights need to be well protected or they will get damaged. LED taillights are far superior to incandescent. They are maintenance free, twice as bright, use half the power and will generally last for the life of the trailer. Every Iron Eagle trailer is equipped with LED lighting.|
|Watch out for used mobile home axles. If the wheel size is 14-1/2", it's probably a mobile home axle and you should reconsider. Mobile home axles are too stiff and it's difficult to find replacement wheels, tires, or wheel bearings. Make sure the axle is attached to some kind of suspension system and not merely welded to the frame. Also make sure the spindles are equipped with a grease fitting for bearing lubrication. Wheel bearings are one of the few maintenance items on a trailer that must be done periodically and grease fitting make that job much, much easier.|
Wheels and tires
|Make sure that the wheels and tires are rated at a combined capacity that is equal to or greater than the GVWR of the trailer. We've seen trailers advertized with a 3000lbs rating and only have tire capacity of 2600lbs. Pass up any trailer that has 14.5" wheels, it's a sure sign of a mobile home axle. 6 ply rated tires are a plus. They have thicker sidewalls and better capacity than 4 ply rated tires which make them much better suited for trailer use.|
|Make sure fenders are attached securely. Sooner or later someone will stand on them so make sure they can withstand it.|
|Take a look at the welded components of the frame. It's amazing how many trailers are on the road with poor welds. If the welds look ugly, then the strength of the weld is degraded. A good weld is blended and consistent.|
Fit & Finish
|Check out the overall fit and finish. You can get a good sense of the integrity of the entire trailer by the general fit and finish. Scrutinize trailers that have exposed sharp corners, inconsistent use of caulking, or any other noticeable sloppiness.|
|If it's a new trailer, make sure the manufacture stands behind their product. Get a written warranty and try to determine how well the company supports their warranty if you can.|
|If you are buying a used trailer, make sure you get a bill of sale and either the statement of origin or title signed over to you from the seller. We get calls all of the time from people who need to register their trailer with the DMV and can't because they don't have the proper paperwork. Unfortunately they can be stuck with a trailer they can't use. If the seller doesn't have the right papers, walk away.|
IRON EAGLE TRAILERS WARRANTY
|All of the trailers that we manufacture come with a full limited Life Time Warranty on all welded components of the steel frame. All component parts such as axle, wheels, tires, lights, couplers, etc. Have a one-year warranty. This is one of the best warranties in this industry. We not only offer it, we stand behind it!|
