- Comments Off on Tips for Driving With a Trailer Part Five
Simply you will need more power to move the heavier cargo trailer and so for this reason you should make sure that you are in a low gear whenever possible so that you can get more power out of your car. This is particularly true when going up hills. When you drive with box trailers or other custom trailers it is very important to listen out for the sound of your engine and if it sounds like it’s working too hard then the best thing to do is to drop down a gear, or maybe to try to go a way that’s a little flatter.
In general you are going to want to try and limit the amount of fuel you lose when you drive with your custom trailers and that means driving in as fuel efficient a way as possible. This is always advisable both for you and for the environment, but when it comes to driving with enclosed trailers it’s even more important because it means that you can avoid wasting more fuel.
To do this, make sure that the weight you’re carrying with you in the car is not more than it needs to be.
