Why choose a lowboy trailer?
Benefits of Buying Lowboy Trailers
Lowboy trailers on our online store offer a smooth behind the wheel experience when hauling intense loads. Since these trailers attach to the rear axle area of towing vehicles, this configuration promotes better weight distribution during transit. Lowboy trailers give you the opportunity to make narrow turns, stay balanced when driving on uneven terrains and carry heavier loads.
Drivers can feel comfortable taking lowboy trailers to new locations, as these attachments deter thieves. If someone wanted to steal your trailer, they would need an aftermarket mounting system with the correct ball hitch for your model.

There are several fundamentally different types of hook connections for utility, flatbed and equipment trailers. These components include ball coupler, pin ring, king pin and gooseneck ball attachment mechanism.
Lowboy trailers are specially designed to hang on the ball in the center of the pickup truck bed. This type of hook has two obvious advantages. First, compared to the load attached at the rear of the truck, the truck bears a much greater weight under a load centered on the truck axle. Second, the gooseneck hook has higher stability and safety because its weight is carried from the middle of the truck bed. Compared with bumper pull trailers, increasing the tongue load on the bed enables the trailer to be towed with higher safety and stability factors. The gooseneck hook greatly reduces the possibility of the trailer "swinging".
TITAN brand lowboy trailers are available in a variety of styles. Basically, almost all TITAN trailers available in bumper pull or pin ring versions can be purchased in lowboy trailer versions. This includes our garden tool trailer, car trailer and mudguard equipment trailer line.
However, our most popular lowboy trailer series so far is the flatbed trailer series. The product line starts with our light model, which is equipped with two 7,000 lb. axles and an 8-inch I-beam frame. This trailer has an 8-inch wide deck above the wheels, with a 20-inch flatbed and a 4-inch dovetail. A lofting bag with a wear bar on the outside of the bed makes the entire width less than 102 inches. The progressive load rating adds a larger frame and increases the capacity of the axle. The three available running gear combinations include three 7,000-pound axles, two 10,000-pound two-wheel axles, or three 10,000-pound two-wheel axles.
A gooseneck trailer, on the other hand, is often owned by a trailering veteran. A gooseneck can easily be confused with a fifth-wheel trailer because the two hitch types are quite similar. The difference is a gooseneck trailer slides over a ball hitch in the bed of a pickup truck, while a fifth wheel trailer attaches to a pickup truck using a hinged plate hitch; the same type of hitch is used by semi trucks.
The biggest advantage of a gooseneck trailer over a bumper pull is its stability. Since the tongue weight of the trailer is over the truck’s rear axle instead of at the back of the frame, the potential of the lowboy trailer to sway is minimized. This increased stability also means gooseneck trailers can accommodate more weight and be larger than a bumper pull trailer. Goosenecks have more room for living quarters if you want them, as well as more room for any cargo you haul.
Gooseneck trailers also have a tighter turn radius. This lets you cut corners tighter than a bumper pull trailer and lets you maneuver the trailer in tighter spaces. This tight turn radius can be a double-edged sword, though. It takes a few tries to learn, and if you mess up you can take off the trailer’s fender, to say nothing of damaging street signs and other cars on the road.
Gooseneck lowboy trailer is a kind of vehicle usually used to load large loads, it is very convenient if used to transport square stones or heavier loads.
