We’ve designed the 58 Heald to be as maintenance-free as possible so that your time is spent doing what you want…traveling! The CNC machined parts ensure tight seals and a strong body, and the stainless steel exterior won’t oxidize or easily crease -like aluminum exteriors do- which makes it easy to keep looking nice and clean.

This little trailer is so light and usable that it can be pulled by any car with a 1000 lb towing capacity or more.
