What Is a Trailer?

A trailer is an easy to transport vehicle that has a seat for a passenger, usually a young child, and a cargo compartment where goods may be stored. Trailers are very popular vehicles (such as cars, vans, trucks, or RVs) which are permanent stationary in place and can usually be used for storage or travel. Most trailers have storage areas and beds, sometimes with ovens or stoves attached to the trailer for cooking. Some campers and trailer owners use their trailers for traveling, while others simply let them sit in the driveway and haul whatever they need to move.


When a trailer is used on a highway, it must meet federal motor vehicle safety standards which require that the vehicle is in good condition at all times. The vehicle also must have working headlights and turn signals, and any other required lighting and warning lights in working order. However, this is not the only safety precaution that must be taken when operating a trailer. A trailer’s safety also depends upon the vehicle which is to be operated in conjunction with the trailer.

The trailer must have brake pressure for safe stopping, and the driver must keep the trailer’s brakes from fully engaging. If either of these systems is broken, the trailer may not be able to stop in time to avoid an accident. Another important feature of the brakes system on a trailer is that it must have sufficient tire pressure to properly stop the trailer. If the trailer’s tires are under-filled, it can actually crush the trailer’s brake lining which could cause an accident if it brakes incorrectly or if the brakes are unable to engage completely.

If films are to be shot on location, film crews use sound stages to create the environment that the filming of the film will take place in. These sound stages are generally outdoors with numerous different acoustics to allow for the different types of sounds that may occur, such as running out of room, fire, and other general noises. However, sound stages on trailers are not used on location films for obvious reasons. This is where sound trailers come into play.

Film trailers are used by many different types of filmmakers. Some use trailers to create hype for a movie they are filming; others use trailers to give an inside look at their story, characters, and how the film itself will work. While many movies will use narration in order to tell the story, some films will instead use voice-overs to provide the necessary dialogue. In addition, some films will use both voice-over and narration in order to give the viewers the necessary information they need to make the film as entertaining as possible.

If you wish to create an official trailer for a feature film, you will need to submit your original work to a number of different places. If you are attempting to submit your trailer as a web feature, you must first receive a copy of the feature film for which you will be submitting the trailer. From there, you must read the synopsis of the feature film provided in a submission packet and register it with the appropriate sites. After which, you will be given a time period to complete the required documents, and then you will be issued your full copyright upon completion.
