Recommended Tie Down Anchor for Aluminum Trailer  


Looking for anchors for a Featherlite aluminum car trailer. Is the RR6K the best, or do you have another recommendation


Expert Reply:

The Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchors w Backing Plates and Hardware - Bolt-On - 2,000 lbs - Qty 4 # RR6K-4 are a great choice if you're in need of fixed points on the floor of the trailer and don't care much about flexibility of spacing for different sized cars.

If you're looking for a bit more overall flexibility then I recommend using Erickson E-tracks like the # E19148. These tracks will allow you a wider variety of tie down spots along the trailer floor, so it will just make the overall experience a little bit more convenient if you're moving a lot of different vehicles. These tracks can be used with Erickson E-Track Strap with Ratchet - 2" Wide x 12' Long - 1,165 lbs # EM59136 to secure the vehicles.

Both of these systems are made from zinc plated steel, so the resistance to galvanization will be good; you can still use some thin rubber pads or any other method to insulate the two surfaces and further protect from this if the floor of your trailer is aluminum.
