Choosing a Flat Deck Trailer
One type of flat deck trailer, which has gained popularity over the years is the single axle flat deck trailer. In this type, there are no sides or roof on the unit, offering quick and simple unloading and loading. It’s also ideal for carrying heavier industrial goods, making it an excellent choice for transporting heavy loads. It’s also the right choice for carrying light loads, including:
Flat deck trailers come in various models, depending on how much cargo you’re planning to haul. You’ll also find varying lengths and sizes. They can be used to carry goods which aren’t as tall as your back fence (such as bicycles and other recreational vehicles), and they can also be used to haul smaller loads, up to 200 pounds or so. On the other hand, smaller flat deck trailers can also be used to carry goods which are taller than your back fence (including shopping bags and furniture). However, if you’re only hauling a few smaller items, a small flat deck trailer will do fine.
The two most popular types of trailers that use the single-axle design are the step deck trailer and the gooseneck trailer. Step deck trailers are quite easy to assemble, even if you’re not familiar with trailers. The gooseneck, on the other hand, consists of two sections: a frame with two axles and a fifth wheel attached to the frame at the bottom. These flat deck trailers offer more space and increased stability, especially when compared to the single axle units. The gooseneck flat deck trailer is also a good choice if you only need to carry light loads.
