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 axles used.
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 deck height is between 18’ to 24’.
When a load exceeds 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 will be transported. Remember, regulations between states differ, and heavy haul trucking permits usually cost more than basic oversize trucking permits.
