Foldy v Standard Trailer

So you are interested in buying a new trailer, but want to weigh up the options between the Foldy Trailer and a standard trailer. That’s why we’ve compiled a short list of pros and cons to help you make your decision.

Standard v Foldy trailer

Space Saving

The Foldy Trailer unlike a standard trailer, is ideal due to its space saving quality. Our Foldy’s unique folding mechanism makes it easy to store away, taking up minimal space in your garage. A standard trailer cannot offer this major advantage and will occupy valuable space in your garage which could be used for other purposes. It will continue to take up this space until you need to use it. Meanwhile, the Foldy Trailer will only take up a small footprint of 140cm by 37cm and stands 195cm tall against your garage walls allowing you to park your car alongside the trailer or to utilise the valuable garage space for other purposes such as DIY and/or storage.

Folded Footprint


Another inherent advantage of the Foldy Trailer’s unique folding mechanism is that it can be safely stored behind closed doors, away from opportunist thieves who might be passing by. Regardless of trailer locks and wheel clamps, skilled thieves can steal a trailer from your driveway or garden within minutes.

Trailer crime has increased over the past couple of years, with many gangs targeting farm trailers more and more. For example, in the county of Dorset, police revealed that 21 trailers were stolen from farms in 2018 and more than 13 were recorded stolen up until September in 2018.

While safely storing your Foldy Trailer behind closed doors significantly reduces the chance of theft, there is still the chance it might be stolen when parked temporarily outside or when left attached to your towing vehicle. In the unfortunate event your Foldy Trailer is stolen, you will need to provide the police with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to aid in its identification and recovery. we also ask you to inform us of the theft so that we have a record of it as well, so that we can take the appropriate action should someone in the future require product support and/or service for that stolen product.

Furthermore, we maintain a backup record of your Foldy’s VIN. So if you or the police ever require this number in order to recover your Foldy Trailer, we’ll have it available for you. The VIN is stamped both on the chassis and tow arm and if removed with grinding tools, would leave significantly noticeable appearance to Foldy Trailers’ galvanised surface coating.

Finally, we strongly recommend you also purchase the Datatag™ Security System for £69.99 from Datatag™ directly. For your convenience, here is the link to their trailer security system.


Unlike most standard trailers, the Foldy trailer is highly customisable and can be specifically tailored for several different activities and jobs. Our expanding range of accessories can help with this. Currently, we offer you:

  • A garden cage shoould you be enthusiastic about home gardening and need that extra volume for garden foliage and the seasonal leaf disposal.
  • Sidewall extensions and a flat canvas cover kit if you wish to take the family and/or friends on a spontaneous camping get away.
  • A front side burden holder which will allow you to transport long items such as garden poles, fencing posts and large pipes.

All the Foldy accessories are designed with easy of use and simplicity in mind, so it is up to you what you want to use your Foldy Trailer for, simply by attaching the appropriate accessory to your Foldy Trailer.
