The fatigue lifetime of the structure in operation is express in the number of working cycles, kilometers or time depending units. By harmonic process of loading is possible to express the safety margin as reserve against the required lifetime in the form of number cycles or amplitude of loading. By nonharmonic character of loading process in operation is difficult to express the level of safety margin as the reserve of loading (safety margin in loading). On the case of towing trailer will be discussed more ways of expression the reserve (safety margin) of structure against the fatigue fracture for required fatigue lifetime. For experimental acquired loading process in the most loaded cross-section will be discussed concept of determination of the level safety as reserve in the form of loading parameters. In the case, when the peaks of loading process exceeding the material yield stress (in the most loaded point of the structure) will be discussed concept of expression of loading in the form of time-varying process of strain. By using the cyclic material properties obtained in mode with controlled total strain is possible the safety margin to express also as the multiple of process loading parameters.
