Lights for a 7 Foot x 10 Foot Cargo Trailer


hello i an building a cargo trailer, 7foot wide by 10foot long and about 6.5foot tall. what lights by law do i have to have? and do you have a kit for sale?


Expert Reply:

It is imperative you check your local laws for lighting requirements in regards to your specific trailer, though I can tell you you no matter what you'll need stop lights, tail lights, turn signals and reflectors. There are other factors, including your trailer's GVWR that you need to take into consideration; I have added a link to a help article on trailer lighting requirements which I highly recommend checking out.

That said, a 7' wide x 10' long cargo trailer is almost certain to have a GVWR under 10,000 lbs so the requirements should be the same as in the accompanying diagram.

For the first requirement regarding top and brake lights with turn signals, reflectors and license plate light a great option is the Miro-Flex LED Combination Trailer Tail Lights # TLL28RK.

For side marker lights you can use the GloLight Thinline LED Trailer Clearance or Side Marker Light # MCL165AB (Amber) or # MCL165RB (Red) which can be mounted with Black Bracket and Single Wire Plug # A65PB.

Finally, for reflectors there is the Red and Amber Self-Adhesive Reflector Kit # RE52ARK.

I have added links to video reviews of these parts for you to check out as well.
