Terminology for Light and Medium Duty Trailers and Components
This SAE standard is intended to create standard terminology related to light and medium duty trailer applications. This includes such trailer types as utility, boat, camping, travel, and special purpose trailers which are normally towed by conventional passenger cars, light-duty commercial vehicles, light trucks, and multipurpose passenger vehicles.
Rationale: A standard terminology for light and medium duty trailer applications (typically GVWR 11794 kg (26000 lb) or less) is desired. This new report provides a list of these terms with definitions and is intended for use by consumers and the trailer industry.
