As summer hits full stride, many bands are getting ready to hit the road for their summer or fall tours. With any music tour comes the need for trailers to haul equipment and sell merchandise.

As the premier trailer dealer in greater Chicagoland, Advantage Trailer is stocked with a wide variety of cargo trailers, concession trailers, and retail trailers to meet the need of any touring band.

Of course, safety is paramount, both in terms of towing the trailer from city to city and keeping your gear from getting stolen, so it makes sense to purchase or rent from a reputable trailer dealer. With 30 years in the trailer business, we have sold trailers to bands such as The Empty Pockets, Plain White Tees, Local H, and Kill Hannah, to name a few.

We also carry a large selection of trailer parts and accessories, such as door locks and hitch locks to help prevent theft. We can even go a step further and wrap your trailer or apply spot graphics with any design you want (i.e. not your band logo) to throw off any would-be thieves.

Here are a few trailers that we currently have on our lot that would be perfect for touring bands:

Equipment Trailers

MTI 7'x16' Enclosed Cargo Trailer

The largest enclosed cargo trailer we currently have is a 7'x16' MTI enclosed cargo trailer. Made with a steel frame, it's sturdy enough to get the job done with space to haul all of your band equipment and merch and the white exterior is conspicuous enough to avoid attention.
