Which side of a trailer is considered right side and which is left? I always thought a vehicle side was determined by sitting the seat, Driver side left, passenger side right side. friend disagrees with me. what do you say?

I was always told
The left sides the right side,
the right sides the wrong side.

I always say drivers side and passenger side just to avoid confusion.

Your analysis is correct

Rightside...passenger side....Curbside
Leftside....drivers side......Roadside


Just try and put a 'rightside' brake assembly on the leftside (roadside) of trailer. It will be backwards!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Drivers side is left side and passenger side is the right side. When you have a RV in tow its the same idea. My door on my TT is on the right=ditch side

Same here. Or street side and curb side. No further discussion either way.

Always from the prospective of the driver sitting in the driver's seat.
That way when the mechanic explains the front right wheel needed air the driver will know what was done.
