Available Flatbed Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of Flatbed Trailer rentals in Detroit

Removable Goosenecks (RGN)

These are called removable because they can be detached from the cabin. The gooseneck is the part where the trailer is attached to the cabin. RGNs are very convenient because you can detach them to form a ramp that is used to load freight onto the deck. These flatbed trailers are configured with multiple axles which increase their hauling capacity and support. As such, the more axles on the trailers, the heavier the loads they can carry. On average, RGNs can have a length of approximately 29 ft.


Lowboys are the extremely low types of flatbed trailers. They are also known as double drops because of the drop made between the two axles. Lowboys have a well created in between the two drops that is used for carrying very tall loads with a maximum height of 14 feet. This well also helps to maintain the load’s stability.

Extendable Stretch Trailer

Extendable trailers can be stretched out to different lengths that exceed that of a standard flatbed trailer. They can also be retracted to their normal lengths once the task is done. Usually, they can be stretched up to 80 feet when really long freight such as turbines need to be hauled.
