    My partner and I are seeking to purchase our first trailer for dry van. Seeking advice on the dos and do nots when buying a trailer. All we know is that we want 53/162/102, swing doors.

    Thank you in advance.

    Id try and buy something 2019 or newer or 2016 or newer at the oldest.

    Wabash with skirts. Skylights are nice. Smooth plate walls with e track. Psi system for the tires in case you get a bolt or a nail in one. Sureloc handles if it’s a wabash, tire carrier, paperwork holder, swivel glad hands. Air slide tandem. Metal roof. Air ride.

    Things like that.

    I just sold two 2019’s and they moved extremely quickly. Within 2 days. So it’ll be tough finding the right deal in this market.
