A good place to start your trailer shopping.
The National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) actively promotes safety and quality in the trailer manufacturing industry and has worked since its inception to improve the trailer industry by ensuring compliance with federal safety regulations and industry standards. NATM also has a voluntary Compliance Verification Program to verify through production-site consultations that members have in place to build trailers to meet or exceed those standards and federal regulations covering certification labels, tires & wheels, brakes, lighting, reflectors & conspicuity, underride protection, Early Warning Reporting, tire placarding information, and cargo securement. In addition, the consultation examines whether the trailer manufacturing process in place can meet industry accepted manufacturing standards and practices covering safety chains, couplers, electrical components, warning labels and consumer information. Starting January 1, 2012, participation in the Compliance Verification Program will no longer be voluntary, but will become a requirement of membership for trailer manufacturers.
See if the manufacturer of the trailer you want to buy is on the "compliant members" list. NATM Comliant Members List
Disclaimer: Just because a manufacturer is not on the list doen't mean they aren't necessarily compliant, but the ones on the list are compliant!
