The Value of Double Drop Trailers

A double drop trailer is a type of open deck trailer that has a lower deck than a flatbed or stepdeck to accommodate taller cargo. Double drops also have a deck over the rear axles and kingpin to create more deck space for smaller cargo.

Trailer specs vary, but double drop trailers can go as low as 18 inches off the ground. This allows you to transport taller cargo without going past legal height limits. Even cargo that is 12 feet tall can meet most state height regulations. Depending on your cargo weight we can utilize trailers with up to three, four, or more axles.

Common Applications for Double Drop Shipping Services

Double drop trailers are an excellent solution for large, oversized, or heavy loads. These trailers are also helpful when you need to transport large items of varying heights in the same shipment. Common cargo that is shipped on double drops and RGN’s include:

  • Construction equipment
  • Heavy machinery for manufacturing
  • Prefab / modular buildings

Numerous industries depend on shipping their cargo with double drop freight trucking, including large-scale construction, agriculture, energy, manufacturing, petrochemical, and mining. These heavy-duty trailers can transport, construction equipment, cranes, tractors, commercial vehicles, refinery equipment, and many other large items.

RGN Versus Double Drop Trailers

A standard double drop trailer can generally ship a maximum of 41,000-45,000 pounds of cargo. Standard deck length is typically 29 feet long and the length of the rear deck varies by axle count, but usually 9-10 feet. Cargo loaded on double drop trailers is usually performed with a crane or forklift. Extendable double drop trailers can accommodate cargo up to up to 50 feet long.

RGN trailers can support drive-on loading. The removable gooseneck can act as a ramp, speeding up and simplifying the loading process for excavators, compactors, commercial trucks, and tractors. RGN trailers do not have deck space over the kingpin which reduces the overall available deck space.
