Trailer Standards in Queensland

By February 15, 2023Campers, Trailers

In Queensland, Australia, trailers are required to comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADR) for trailer safety standards. These rules cover various aspects of trailer construction and operation, including brakes, suspension, lighting, and load capacity.

Some specific trailer safety requirements in Queensland include:

1. Brakes: All trailers with a Gross Trailer Mass (GTM) of 750 kg or more must have a braking system that complies with the ADRs. This includes electric or hydraulic brakes on all wheels, or an override braking system on at least one axle.

2. Lights: All trailers must have functioning brake lights, indicators, and taillights, which must be visible from a distance of 200 meters.

3. Couplings: All trailers must have a compliant coupling system that securely attaches the trailer to the towing vehicle. This includes a safety chain or cable that can support the full weight of the trailer in case of coupling failure.

4. Load capacity: Trailers must have a load capacity that is appropriate for the weight and size of the load being carried. Overloading a trailer can cause it to become unstable and increase the risk of accidents.

It is important to note that these requirements may vary depending on the type and intended use of the trailer. Stonegate Industries ensure all our trailers meet safety standards in the state, and can provide advice and guidance on compliance requirements for various trailer types and uses.
