A double drop trailer usually ranges between 24 ft to 29.6 ft in length. These trailers are used to haul cargo that is taller than a standard flatbed can legally carry. Built with a high deck at the front and another at the rear of the trailer, these decks create a well where tall cargo such as a bulldozer can be placed for hauling. A standard double drop can haul up to 40,000 lbs, making it a great choice for hauling large and heavy equipment.
Extendable Double Drop
Similar to double drops, extendable double drop trailers are extendable to accommodate more freight than the standard double drop. With lengths of 29 ft to 50 ft, the extendable double drop trailer can be used to haul large and heavy equipment.
