The right kind of bike trailer can haul just about anything: people, pets, even serious cargo. But not every bike trailer is built to haul heavy loads.
So, how do you figure out what the weight limit is for a particular bike trailer?
Well, if possible, you should check the manufacturer's specifications first. They’ve tested the limits so that you don’t have to.
But if you can't find the specs, or if you're dealing with a DIY bike trailer, below is a step-by-step guide on how to determine your bike trailer's weight and capacity.
Added this introductory section to provide context and lead into the core information of the article. Includes internal links and keywords.
Every bike trailer has at least two weight capacities: a static capacity rating and a dynamic capacity. Understanding the difference between dynamic and static capacities is crucial for a smooth and safe trip.
In the next few sections, we will look at factors affecting static and dynamic capacity.
Not every bike trailer can carry heavy loads, but the right kind can haul just about anything! Browse our selection to learn more about our bike trailers, and feel free to contact us with your questions about bike trailer weight limits and more.
