The most common flatbed trailers are 45′ to 48′ in length. (53’ trailers are available with limited availability.)
Flatbeds are available with either spring-ride suspension (for general commodities such as building materials, steel, plastics, etc.) or air-ride suspension (for sensitive/ fragile commodities such as machinery, stone and glass). Most are equipped with full tarps, straps, chains and binders.
The flatbed trailer is the workhorse of the trucking industry. Lengths from 45′ to 53′, deck height usually 58″ to 60″. The stretch trailer, usually 48′ in the closed position, extends to lengths of 70′ to 80′.
