Cargo Trailers With Living Quarters and Enclosed Trailers With Living Quarters are synonymous, meaning that they can be viewed as the same trailer.  The difference between the two trailers is how the trailer will be used.  Cargo trailers are configured to specifically haul cargo, where an enclosed trailer may be used to haul cars, recreational powersports vehicles like side by sides or other specific uses.  Cargo is generally packaged in such a manner as it can be stacked.

A Cargo Trailer


Cargo Requirements

When considering cargo, there are primarily two main considerations, total weight of all cargo and total volume of all cargo.  In order to size the axels of the trailer properly, the weight of the maximum weight of the cargo must be calculated.  The dry weight of the trailer and the cargo is added together to determine the axle size.  For example, if the cargo weight 8,000# and the trailer weighted 13,000# a minimum axle configuration would be triple 7,000# axles but 8,000# axles would be recommended.  A living quarters trailer generally 96″ wide.  Using graph paper, draw out your cargo floor plan.  Calculate the linear feet needed for your cargo.  Living quarters trailers can be made with additional height if the volume is needed. It is highly recommended to increase  the space space to your calculation.


Living Quarters Requirements

There are many considerations when choosing a living quarters.  First determine how many people you need to sleep or entertain in the living quarters.  Sofas and dinettes fold down providing a sleeping space, althought these sleeping spaces.  Wall mounted bunk beds are also an option.  Additional sleeping capacity can be added in the cargo area but this will take up space.  Fold down sofas, bunk beds and Happy Jack Beds can be added.  Consider the amenities needed.  Choices include, but are not limited to refrigerator size, oven and monitoring panel.  Consult with your Millennium Trailers Design Specialist for the potential options.


Overall Trailer Length

Our most popular size of living quartes is 12′.  There are several floor plans that use 12′ of floor space and in a gooseneck use the 12′ floor and the 8′ space over the truck be.  Most floor plans can be put into a bumper pull.  To calculate the size of the trailer add the floor space used by the living quarters, the cargo space.  If this exceeds 34′ then a gooseneck trailer is required.  To calculate the lenght of the gooseneck trailer add 8′ to your calculation.
