Types of Double-Drop Trailers We Can Move

Low to the ground and specially designed to carry taller loads and handle heavy shipments, double drop trailers, also called lowboys, offer unrivaled versatility and unique capabilities. At Cowtown Express, we utilize four different types:

Standard Double Drop Decks (3 and 5-axle)

This double-drop trailer type adds 3 feet to height clearances and is ideal for shipping extra-tall freight.

Double-Drop RGNs

A removable gooseneck allows wheeled or tracked equipment to drive directly onto the trailer.

Stretch Double-Drops

These double drop trailers provide maximum support for excessively long hauls without the risk of overhanging freight.

What are the cargo weight limits for double-drop flatbeds?

Double-drop flatbeds can haul loads exceeding 55,000 pounds, yet most commonly weighs around 40,000 pounds. Because double-drop flatbeds are feature-rich, they can accommodate a maximum load of 80,000 pounds, depending on the number of axle groups used.

What are the double-drop trailer dimensions?

Double-drop trailers are incredibly versatile and come in various sizes. They typically have a total length of 48’. Their upper deck length is between 8’-11’, while their lower deck length totals between 29’-50’. The trailer width is usually 8’6”, and the rear deck height is between 18’ to 24’.

Do we need to obtain special permits for transporting double drops?

When a load exceeds the maximum weight or axle group limits set forth by a state’s regulations, a special heavy haul trucking permit is required from the state in which it'll be transported. Remember, general freight and trucking industry regulations between states differ, and heavy haul trucking permits usually cost more than basic oversize trucking permits.
