convenience and versatility

Compared to standard flatbeds, Removable gooseneck trailers offer greater convenience and versatility. They can carry greater capacity without compromising speed and are just as safe and secure as standard flatbeds.

Easier loading/unloading

The front of a removable gooseneck trailer is detachable, allowing large equipment and motorized vehicles to be driven directly onto it. This eliminates the need for other specialized machinery and apparatus to load and unload trailers.

With a removable gooseneck trailer, there is more height and space to work with. The trailer drops in the middle, and this “well” spans approximately 29 feet across, allowing the easy transport of loads up to 12 feet tall. This enables companies to haul taller equipment without having to constantly deal with permits.

Types Of RGN Trailers We Can Employ For Your Needs

The shape and size of RGN shipping trailers vary greatly depending on the manufacturer and intended use. They are ideal for transporting tall loads of agricultural, energy, and construction equipment:

Standard RGNs

The front detaches, so loads like motorized equipment and vehicles can be driven on

Single Drop

These trailers drop at the front and remain flat all the way to the end, providing additional height allowances up to 10’ high.

Double-Drop / Lowboys

A well between two axles that’s extremely low to the ground allows these trailers to carry the tallest loads up to 12’ high.

Extendable RGNs

The middle of these trailers extends to accommodate loads up to 74ft in length.
