Según la RAE un tráiler es un remolque, aunque siempre había pensado que era todo el camión.

¿Por qué no te gusta tráiler?

No sé, es que huele mucho al inglés. No sé de donde proviene la palabra pero siempre he pensado que era espanglish.

Pues sale en la RAE. Sí, a mí también me huele a inglés, pero supongo que se ha adaptado al español a base de usarla. La verdad es que los camioneros la usan mucho.

Sí, yo he oído mucho esa palabra. Incluso los niños, jugando, la dicen.

I would use trailer to mean something which hangs on the back of a truck. (It has to be pulled like a caravan) I think remolque is a better translation of trailer, and camión for a truck or lorry.

Pity about the beer though!
