Good habits 

Your trailer is an asset and we see many 30year+ Pintos still going strong. We build them tough from locally sourced materials and we recommend maintaining good habits with your trailer to keep it in good nick for many years to come. 

  • Keep your wiring and wiring plug off the ground to prevent crushing and wearing
  • Check your tyre pressure regularly for safety also checking the spare wheel
  • Keep an eye on your deck for knicks and seal as needed
  • Consider a sheltered spot or a cover to keep it clean and prevent long term weather damage
  • Check condition and suitability of the safety chain (grazing, connected with a bolt and not a shackle, 2 chains for 2000kg-2500kg Gross Vehicle Mass GVM)
