About Step Deck Trailers
Step deck trailers are available in single-drop and double-drop versions, and have cargo weight capacities ranging from about 43,000 to 48,000 pounds. The trailers are very similar in design and functionality to flatbed models, as both use an open-deck design, measure 8.5 feet wide, and span 48 to 53 feet long. The open-deck design makes a step deck trailer well-suited for transporting awkwardly shaped loads, such as farm and construction machines. With a bottom deck that’s positioned lower to the ground, however, step decks can haul loads measuring up to 10 feet high compared to 8.5 feet for a flatbed while also providing a lower center of gravity.
Step Deck Trailer Uses
Step deck trailers offer great flexibility in terms being able to load and unload them from either side, the top, or the rear, but may require obtaining permits for if hauling loads exceeding allowable limits. You’ll find thousands of step deck trailer transportation haulers available within FR8Star’s carrier network, with rates based on cargo weight and dimensions, shipping destination, fuel prices, and other market factors.
