INNOVATIVE PRODUCTION FEATURES

Complete zing protection for corrosion resistance Marathon offers strength and reliability over the long haul, with their line of towable trailers. Constructed to suit a wide variety of towing applications, their zinc protected models offer increased durability. Unlike paint-coated trailers, Marathon line models have complete galvanized zinc coating to prevent corrosion from spreading should the surface of the trailer be damaged.

Shock absorbing torsion suspension for a smooth, safe ride Marathon trailers also feature shock-absorbing Torsion Suspension* offering far superior protection than conventional springs. The Torsion Suspension system absorbs most bumps and shocks from the road, providing a better and safer ride for your cargo.

Versatility

The versatility of Marathon trailers makes them an ideal choice for all your hauling needs. Compact in size, they can be stored in the average garage or parked in the driveway, providing the perfect option when space is at a premium.

With the unique ability to adapt to each load, Marathon trailers are the most flexible trailers in their class. Whether it's picking up building supplies, packing gear for a camping trip, or loading up motorbikes, skidoos and 4x4s for sporting adventures, Marathon trailers are your multipurpose solution.

SELECTING THE RIGHT TRAILER MODEL FOR YOUR NEEDS

The general design of a Marathon trailer is fairly comparable from model to model, with many structural similarities shared between them. The main difference between models is the size of the trailer bed, axles and wheels, which dictate the size and weight of the materials to be placed within the trailer.

Utility trailers are suitable for hauling by car**, van, 4x4 or truck. It is important to check your vehicle's owner's manual for maximum recommended towing weights. For example, the large cargo enclosed trailer requires a high-powered vehicle that can handle more weight.

To find the model that best suits your needs, take the following features into consideration:

  • maximum haul payload
  • size and type of the trailer's sides
  • front gate options (fixed or expandable)
  • ramp type
  • number of tie-down points

Also, remember to consider where your trailer will be stored and the amount of storage space available for the trailer when it is not in use.
