What do you mean by "trailer"?

I could guess that you might mean any one of:

The opening intro (commonly called the OP).

The closing credits (commonly called the ED).

The trailers which advertise other episodes or even other series
(commonly called "trailers").

...and possibly a few other things as well.

In most cases, all of these will be separate VOBs and separate titles on
the DVD; you will then just need to find the correct one and copy that
by whatever method you have chosen. (Since you're asking here, I presume
that you're planning to use MPlayer and/or MEncoder.)
