Double check all latches to ensure they are in a safe position before you travel. 

Walk around your trailer before pulling out on the road to double-check that everything is secure and ready for travel. Make sure all doors are latched and the trailer is locked onto the ball. Also, always double-check your first-aid kit before every trip. You don't want to neglect to restock something and then find you need it in an emergency.
