In Canada, trailers or RVs are often rented by residents as well as tourists. Rental trailers are a great way to see the beautiful Canadian scenery, and are comfortable to travel in. It is no wonder that trailer rentals are popular in Canada.
There are over 260,000 Canadians employed by the trucking industry. Truck and trailer maintenance is performed routinely to keep things running smoothly and to avoid costly repairs. Refrigeration trucks are common, and perhaps even more important to keep well maintained to keep the contents of the truck cold. Trucks are quite heavy. The class 5 trucks weigh between 16,001 and 19,500 pounds. Trailer and refrigeration truck manufacturers are working together to create trailers that are lighter and stronger so that they can haul heavier loads (due to the decreased weight of the haulers).
Many aspects of truck and trailer maintenance is the same as it is for passenger cars. Regular washings, oil changes, and routine tire and brake checks are a few examples. However, besides being larger vehicles there are also some differences in the mechanics that have to be accounted for and maintained as well.
