    Good morning
    I‘m just thinking about to buy a low profile 53 foot flat deck trailer.It has a narrow neck which only 7 to 8 inches high,
    The reason is I am tired for Tarping!I may install roll tide system on it,yeah I could have 103 w,104H
    It has 255 70 R22.5.Someone told me that there would be some difficulties when strapping.My tractor doesnt have low profile tires which cause The space between drive wheels And deck too small.
    Is anybody here has Experience with low profile Flat deck?Thanks

    Check the load concentration rating of those trailers if you will be hauling coils and such.

    Hello, I'm trying to find someone on here that can direct me to the right website... I'm moving and I'm looking for a website that I can negotiate with independent truckers for my move. Maybe you know of something?.. in 2008 I found a website and was able to talk to guys with their own truck and I hired one of them and it worked out really well.. I'm trying to avoid the middle man and brokers, etc.

    For those spots over the wheels you order fixed winches installed on the side of the deck. They cut out part of the rubrail and weld in / bolt in a winch.

    That will probably not work with the contestoga though.
