This gooseneck trailer is one of the best sellers from Gatormade. It comes with a number of unique features including its 10-foot dovetail and aerodynamic open headboard for load protection. It also has many other heavy-duty components that make it stand out among other trailers in the market.
A low-profile design makes a trailer more stable because the bed is closer to the center of gravity. This trailer has a low-profile pierced frame design with only 35 inches of deck height. The bed is made from 2 x 8 pressure-treated wood flooring which offers good traction to help keep the load stay in place. Wood also resists flexing. Access to the flatbed is easier and safer as this trailer also comes with dual boarding steps with big handles.
Powder Coat Finish
A powder coat finish is considered the most durable paint finish for a trailer. It is resistant to corrosion, abrasion, peeling and cracking. Unlike regular paint, the finish is also free from typical imperfections such as bubbles, drips and runs. It is also considered as an economical choice because you don’t have to repaint from time to time as powder coat lasts longer than regular paint.
Top-of-the-Line Anti-flex System
The anti-flex system keeps swaying and flexing to a minimum. This feature also extends the life of the trailer. This trailer’s anti-flex system includes a 6-inch diameter torque tube and 14″ I-beam main frame construction that is 30,000# rated. Also part of the anti-flex system is the bracing under the trailer bed. The gussets run from the side of the bed down to the I-beam. This bracing provides added strength and stability to the main frame.
One of the prominent features of this gooseneck is its 10-foot hydraulic dovetail which is fitted with a slip-resistant rubber floor loading area. This no-touch dovetail raises and lowers with the touch of a button. You don’t have to contend with complex bars, screws or latches.
There are two 25k heavy duty dual speed spring loaded jacks fitted at the front of this trailer. These jacks allow you to hook up or unhook easily and quickly. They also provide added stability during loading and unloading when the trailer is not attached to a vehicle.
Lights and Wiring
All the lights fitted in this trailer are LED. LED lights are better than conventional lights as they last longer and provide better illumination. The light package is DOT-approved and legal in all states in the US and Canada. To help get your work at night done, this trailer also comes with a LED work light bar on top of the neck. Moreover, it uses a preformed wire harness that is weather resistant to ensure that your wiring are safe.
For a worry-free travel experience, this trailer comes with vital safety features. One vital feature is the safety breakaway kit. In case the trailer unhooks from the vehicle, you can use this breakaway kit to stop the trailer in no time to avoid any accidents. Moreover, a mounted fire extinguisher is also part of the standard equipment.
Dexter axles are the best in the industry due to their reliability and durability. This trailer has two 10k drum Dexter axles.
The Gatormade Gooseneck Trailer with Hydraulic Dovetail is fitted with 16-inch 10-ply radial tires. These deep-tread commercial tires provide greater mileage than conventional tires. Radial tires also handle bumps better, making your ride smoother. A matching mounted spare tire is also a part of the standard feature.
