An Extendable Trailer can also be known as an extendable straight frame or trombone. Low loader, step or drop frame, urban or short and flat or platform trailers can also be extendable.
An Extendable Trailer is versatile and suitable for a variety of long loads. ‘Extenders’ as they are sometime known can be single, double or even triple extending. A basic single extending flat trailer can go from 13.6m to 21m. A double extending step frame semi low loader can go from 9.1m (in the bed/lower deck) to 22m when fully extended. A triple extending flat/platform can extend from 13.2m to a staggering 53m.
We have a variety of extenders on our fleet from manufacturers including Broshuis, Nooteboom, Montracon, Dennison, Doll and SDC.
