Trailer Chassis Parts

Trailer Coupling Plates
You weld these trailer coupling plates to the top of your chassis rails, so you can bolt the coupling onto them.

Say hello to the Australian outback! The perfect place to hook up your caravan trailer to your 4-wheel drive, and head off into the dirt trails for the perfect weekend camping trip. The land beyond the Black Stump is vast. You’re spoilt for choice when looking for spots to enjoy the great outdoors with the people you’re closest to.

Navigating craggy Aussie terrain is a challenging task for anyone who ventures out to face its red-orange dirt trails in their 4-wheel drives. As exciting as it is to camp here at night, navigating through this vast expanse of nothingness is an experience in itself. Plus, you get to see all kinds of critters and furries that you can’t see anywhere else in the world.
The Need For Spares In The Outback
Your vehicle breaking down in the middle of nowhere can completely take away from the fun of camping outdoors, though.

Even the best vehicles and trailers have broken down all over the flatlands while trying to negotiate a particularly stubborn patch. You can easily damage your trailer towing mechanism like off-road couplings, tow ball, and receivers in the outback.

But don’t worry, even though you’re unlikely to find help in the GAFA, you can always find help at Couplemate. We deliver all kinds of spare trailer coupling plates, caravan trailer parts, and tow hitches to wherever your vehicle has broken down. If we don’t have the camper trailer part you need, we’ll get one sent over within 48 hours.
Key Info On Trailer Coupling Plates
At Couplemate, we stock trailer coupling plates to suit most trailer couplings.

Buying and cutting flat steel can be expensive and time-consuming, When manufacturers cut plates to size and pre-drill holes in the correct position for your coupling, you save quite a bit. This is a practical solution for what would otherwise be a difficult job.

Coupling plates are generally 6mm; with chassis rails so close to each other, you simply won’t need thicker material.

Manufacturers pre-drill shackle plates as follows (no, we do not pre-drill these plates to different hole configurations).

100mm for two-hole plates
184mm x 52mm for 4-hole plates.

You weld coupling plates on top of the chassis rails, or under them. When you weld these under the chassis rails, they go between the chassis rails. This provides a lower attachment point for the trailer or caravan.
