RGN Freight Transportation

The double drop trailer, designed for excessively tall cargo, generally has a lower deck clearance of 18-22”, which allows the transport of freight up to 11’6”. For roll on roll off freight, a removable gooseneck (RGN) trailer variant is used. The RGN trailer can be unhooked into two sections for easier loading and unloading, and also features a well, generally 29’6” long and 20-24” off the ground, allowing for cargo up to 11’8”.

Common Applications for Double Drop Trailers

  • Drilling rigs
  • Oil, gas, and petrochemical equipment
  • High-pressure vessels and storage tanks
  • Building materials and construction site supplies
  • Compressor skids
  • Forging machines

Due to the open nature of double drop trailers, we work with our experienced carriers to secure and protect your cargo with tarps, chains or straps.
