Can I Use a Cargo Trailer with a Small Car?

You have some big cargo you want to haul, and maybe there’s even a cargo trailer in your yard, but your older cousin used it and now his truck is gone. Maybe you have a small vehicle and your buddy gifted you a cargo trailer when he moved. Obviously, those are just examples, but one way or another, you might find yourself in a situation in which you have a cargo trailer but you don’t know if your vehicle is big enough to pull it. 

The Trailer Parts Outlet is here to help answer your questions. 

The short answer is...yes! You can tow a cargo trailer if you have a small trailer. Just double check the recommended weight and tow capacity to make sure you are good to go. 

What Can I Tow With a Small Vehicle & Cargo Trailer?

You can handle so many of your tow needs with a cargo trailer and small vehicle. This is how you can get the crew’s golf clubs, a couple of bicycles, camping gear, and a whole team’s suitcases where they need to be. Load up your trailer with suitcases, coolers, beach chairs, electric scooters, or whatever bigger pieces of gear are going to be the key to your perfect weekend. 

Use Your Small Car to Haul Your Enclosed Cargo Trailer

When you are doing medium sized, simple weekend hauls, you can be confident in your small vehicle and enclosed cargo trailer combo. This method saves you the risk and hassle of a mounted cargo basket, bike rack, or top luggage rack. None of these options will offer the space of security of a small cargo trailer. Not only that, enclosed cargo trailers are better at protecting your belongings from theft. Keep your vehicle/trailer combo safe, secure and versatile! Don’t put yourself in a position where you’re constantly glancing at the roof of your own car for bad news. Also, putting bikes, wheelchairs and surfboards on top of a car is a good way to scratch up your car’s paint. A trailer is a much better option! 

Contact The Trailer Parts Outlet with Any Questions


We know that most of the time, two trailer haulers won’t be similar. They will each require different needs. They’re using different vehicles to tow different trailers, and their cargo doesn’t match either. That’s why we prioritize a personal, helpful touch whenever we are dealing with customers. We want to make sure you are getting the real information you need about your hauling plans. If you have questions about whether or not your vehicle and trailer can work together, please reach out to us as soon as possible.
