Double Drop / Lowboy Trailer Dimensions & Weights
RGN Trailer Shipping Service
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”.
