"Trailer" is a punk influenced mini-album by the band Ash featuring their first three singles. An expanded edition also includes 4 b-sides. The album was released in October, 1994 through Infectious Records. The band considered it a "trailer" for their future debut album proper, and named it accordingly.

The band recorded this album while still teenagers, and the sleeve art features the legend "Guaranteed Real Teenagers", taken from a porn magazine, to promote this. "Uncle Pat" was featured in a Heineken advert, which helped to raise the profile of the band, both in Ireland and Britain.

The name refers to movie trailers, so as a visual pun, the cover of the album shows a toppled truck trailer.

The 'noise' at the end of the track "Get Out", when reversed, slowed down and the pitch altered, is a low quality demo version of the song "Intense Thing".

An early rare version of this album was released with a bonus John Peel Sessions 7" with the tracks:
1. Silver Surfer
2. Jazz '59
