The payload will vary from trailer to trailer.

Between the front and rear upper decks is a low deck area referred to as a well. The well is typically 29′ 6″ in length. The well is usually around 20″ to 24″ off the ground allowing for transport of freight that is around 11’8″ in height.

Trailers

Stretch Deck Option

Stretch single-drop deck trailers are designed to carry and haul truckloads that are too long for the length restrictions of a standard or traditional step deck. They provide extra support, preventing freight overhang. The lowered main deck allows plenty of room for taller loads that exceed the height limit of a regular flatbed stretch trailer. With 35 to 63 feet of flatbed deck length, the stretch single drop trailer is ideal for overlength freight shipments. We start with timely door-to-door service, and we help with in-depth details like permitting, routing, clearances, inspections, and tarps.

This trailer can also elevate over inclines along any route, and then lower for passing under overpasses.
