Our storable trailer is made of a galvanized steel frame, powder-coated box steel panels, and poly-coated Marine-grade plywood for the bed. To ensure your new SPACE Trailer maintains its new glow it is important to use cleaners that do not erode those protective coatings. While common contaminants like oil, grease, and moisture may cause stains if left unchecked, cleaners like Comet, Clorox, or Simple Green can remove contaminants from the storable trailer without affecting the finish.

When you put away your storable trailer, SPACE Trailers have the unique benefit of vertical storage. This unique method of trailer storage opens up more floor space for other items in your garage. When storing your SPACE trailer, level ground is very important. Solid flat ground will secure the trailer in its place and help keep it from moving or falling over.
