How to Accessories Your Car

Hello! My name is Andy. When I purchased my first car, I didn't really think about how I could accessorise it. I was so focused on making sure that I the tyres were inflated to the correct pressure, that the engine was in good condition and the exhaust system was working well. However, one day when I was driving around the streets of Sydney, I noticed a guy in the same model car as me. However, his looked much better. It had customised seat covers, a metal gear shift stick and custom decals on the bodywork. I got talking with him, and he recommended a place I could buy my own auto accessories. Now, my car looks great. I decided to start this blog so I could share my passion for auto accessories with others.

Choosing Single Axle Trailers

If you need a small trailer, especially for personal uses and one that you can tow behind a small car, a single trailer is what you should go for. Why?

They are sturdy, easy to handle, have a heavy load-bearing capacity and because they have fewer tyres and brakes, replacement and maintenance are easy. Single axle trailers are also more affordable than double-axle trailers. They are small and light enough to withstand your load and make it easy for you to tow. Here's what you need to know when choosing a single axle trailer:


Single axle trailers are generally small, but the word small covers various sizes. Consider the goods you need to transport with the trailer, which helps you determine the most suitable size; you might require the help of a single axle trailer salesperson when choosing a suitable size.


You need to know various things to help you understand matters concerning weight:

  • Your vehicle's towing capacity - This is the maximum weight that your car can tow, which is usually provided by your car's manufacturer; you should not exceed it.
  • ATM (Aggregate Trailer Mass) – This is the weight of your trailer when loaded with your luggage/goods and not connected/coupled to your car.
  • GTM (Gross Trailer Mass) - This is the weight of your trailer when loaded with your luggage/goods and connected/coupled to your car.

You should know that when your trailer is connected/coupled to your car, some of its weight is transferred to your car and, therefore, the GTM is always less than the ATM.

When choosing a trailer, ensure that the ATM does not exceed your vehicle's towing capacity.


Depending on what you are transporting, you might need the trailer modified. You may require a cage with a secure latch and also a cover. If these are your needs, inform the single axle trailer company to apply the modifications. You should know that it might cost extra. You can also choose trailers with LED lights, particular colours or patterns, ramps, spare tyres, etc.

Australian Standards

Ensure that the trailer you purchase has met Australian safety and design standards. Check to see if you find any markings with a number that has the letters "AS". Products that have met Australian Standards are required to make such markings.


Make sure you get a warranty when purchasing a single axle trailer. A longer warranty period indicates you are buying a genuine and durable trailer.
