You can add plug sockets and electrical leads that can connect to a generator or solar panels that you can place on top of your trailer. If you are using it for your office or a tiny home, then you will almost certainly need to make sure it has power so that you can have lights in there and heat for those winter months.

Storage space

If you are using your cargo trailer for storage and really want to utilize the space or split the storage out into different sections, then you can install cabinets or shelves to help organise and use the space to your advantage. 

Ramps

If you need to get heavy items in and out of your cargo trailer, then it might be a good idea to install a ramp. This is especially useful if you are using the trailer to store or transport things with wheels such as bikes or quad bikes as you can easily wheel them in and out.

Flooring/walls

Some people opt to customize the walls and floors of a cargo trailer especially if they are using it for a tiny or an office to make it more homely and look nicer. There are many different types of materials you can use to customize the floors and walls.

Wheels/Tires

Depending on what terrain you might be driving on you may want to change your tyres accordingly as often cargo trailers can be used to go to areas that are more muddy or uneven such as for camping or out in the woods. You might even want to change your tires for aesthetic reasons as well if you want to customise the rims to take your trailer to a whole other level. 

Add vinyl wraps

For those who are using the cargo trailer for business purposes it is a great idea to make sure you are advertising on the outside by using vinyl wraps for your company name and logo or any other additional information you want them to know. Some people even decide to vinyl wrap their cargo trailer just to make it look more stylish and not particularly for business reasons.
