Exhibition Trailer Servicing and Maintenance

1. Annual Exhibition Trailer servicing

  • We recommend that as a minimum servicing exhibition trailers is carried out annually
  • Running gear needs to be checked and serviced on a regular basis eg wheels and tyres, coupling, brakes, etc

2. As well as servicing exhibition trailers annually you also need to maintain: 

  • Valid electrical certificates in respect of any 240 volt installations
  • PAT testing for any on board electrical appliances
  • Gas tests for any on board gas equipment

3. For insurance purposes, we also advise regular inspection of:

  • Chassis
  • Steps
  • Handrails
  • Clips, fasteners, bolts etc
  • Water systems
  • Generators
  • Heating
  • Air conditioning
  • Fire extinguishers etc

4. Regularly walk around your trailer and conduct a visual inspection, checking the following:

  • Is there any visible damage that needs repair?
  • Are your struts, canopy, wings etc in full working order?
  • Are your tyres correctly inflated?
  • Are your wheel nuts torqued?


5. Maintenance you can carry out yourself to help prolong life of parts:

  • Apply grease to the necessary areas of the running gear
  • Spray WD40 or White Grease into locks to keep them corrosion free and operating correctly.
  • Clean bodywork and roof regularly
