The Trailer[3] is a towable trailer in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online

The Trailer is depicted as a twin-axle, medium-sized trailer with different variants and features. All models, like the Flatbed Trailer and the Log Trailer, share the same chassis, with two stands on the front for the landing gear, side guard rails protecting the underside from other vehicles and a rear guard rail with the corresponding circular tail lights, also used on most semi-trucks.

  • The first model, trailers, may spawn either as a container trailer or a curtain-side trailer. The first one has an off-gray, rustic container that is similar to the one seen in the Dock Trailer, while the second one has a blue box with side metallic curtains, evidenced by the numerous straps at the bottom of the box (always closed). Despite the trailers having metallic doors on the rear, neither can be opened up, as they are both solid extras.
  • The second model, trailers2, is a generic box trailer with refrigeration units on the front, chrome borders, red/white warning strips across the lower sides of the box, side guard rails with textures from the Flatbed Trailer, different rear guard rail textures and thinner fenders fitted with mudguards on either end. It may spawn blank or with company liveries, being Cluckin' Bell, Pisswasser and Up-n-Atom Burger.
  • The third model, trailers3, is a larger box trailer with similar features to the standard box model, but has a metallic front wall, a single rear ramp in place of twin doors and a set of fenders derived from semi-trucks. It only spawns with a Big G Goods livery.
  • An additional model, tvtrailer, is a box trailer similar to the standard box model, but the front area (where the male attachment is located) is slightly raised and has additional details on the middle section. This version only spawns with a Fame or Shame livery.

The first model and the Fame or Shame variant does not seem to assign a color on any area, while the box trailers normally spawn in white. All trailers use the standard double wheels shared from many industrial vehicles.

According to the files, the following vehicles can tow any model of this trailer:

An additional trailers4 model (known as the "white container"), was added in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Gunrunning. This version is almost identical to the container version, but the original permanent gray texture is replaced with a white texture, which is able to be recolored in a similar manner to regular cars. This allows for the container itself to be colored differently.

In all the forms it appears in, the trailer seems to be relatively light and therefore allowing trucks to travel the quickest out of all trailers, even with the container attachment. trailers2 and tvtrailer can burn when destroyed, unlike other trailers, appearing as a unique burnt-out material on the walls of the trailer shell.

Being trailers, they cannot be driven, however they do use a shared handling line.

It should be notice that some semi-trucks are unable to re-hook onto trailers3 (large box trailer), as the male attachment is too low down for trucks to reverse under. Semi-trucks can be seen towing the trailer around the map, but unhooking it may prevent further use.

Special Variants

Cluckin Bell Trailer

A random semi-truck will often tow a Cluckin' Bell trailer out of Clucking Bell Farms in Paleto Bay. This requires a vehicle model set to specify the livery it must spawn in. This applies to trailers2, the box trailer found with numerous liveries.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto V

  • 2 Packers tow trailers3's (ramp trailer) during the Subtle approach to The Big Score, to store the cars full of gold at the end of the mission.
  • Several Phantoms tow Fame or Shame trailers during Fame or Shame.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The container/curtain-side variant can appear during Gunrunning stock sell missions.
Organization Work
  • The container/curtain-side, box and Fame or Shame variants can appear as the goods trailer Blips-GTAO-Haulage-Trailer-Friendly.pngBlips-GTAO-Haulage-Trailer-Enemy.png in Haulage. The Fame or Shame variant will always spawn outside Maze Bank Arena.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • The container & curtain-side models commonly appear alongside the Tanker trailer at gas stations - particularly the gas station near Del Perro Beach on the Great Ocean Highway.
  • The container & curtain-side and the box versions can spawn around warehouses and parking lots around the entirety of the Port of Los Santos.
  • A container & curtain-side as well as a box version of the trailer can spawn parked outside a warehouse/service area on Joshua Road, just north of Harmony and north of the rail-road.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • All variants, with the exception of the Fame or Shame model, can appear in traffic towed by Phantoms, Haulers and Packers.


  • Strangely, trailers, trailers2 and trailers3 have their own individual handling lines in Handling.meta. However, all three use one handling line.[4]
  • All liveries of the standard box trailer have a thin line on the center. This is because all liveries are split in half in the files, and the white line simply indicating where the liveries are wrapped.
  • Jetsam and Bilgeco liveries can be found in the textures for the container-based trailers, but are unused on the trailer itself. It is likely these are reused from their respective static prop forms and simply not used on the towable trailers, or that they were planned to be but scrapped from the final game.

  3. .gxt2 Data: trailers, trailers2 and trailers3 have game names as "TRAILER", which are named "Trailer" in-game.
  4. Data Lines
    It is likely these trailers do not use the following individual handling lines as all three listed handling lines have different names, and instead the three models use the same handling name "TRAILER".
