Trail King’s new mechanical detachable gooseneck (MG) trailer delivers lightweight strength, maximum corrosion resistance and long-lasting good looks.

The upper deck and the wheel area of the new MG feature aluminum cross members and outer rails as standard equipment, to deliver optimum corrosion resistance as well as significant weight savings. In fact, the new MG is 750 to 1,000 lbs. (340 to 453 kg) lighter than previous models, according to the manufacturer.

The standard cross members in the main deck are 8 in. (20 cm) I-beams alternating with 4 in. (10 cm) I-beams for 12 in. (30 cm) spacing in the outer bays, although aluminum cross members are available as an option, as are aluminum box beam cross members to accommodate optional aluminum pullouts.

The MG still features four steel main I-beams constructed of one-piece web and flange material that is welded on all four sides to seal and protect the seams from rust and corrosion. Then all steel is primed and painted with two-component urethane primer and two-component polyurethane paint before decking or any air, hydraulic or electrical lines are installed. This includes the new wheel area, where the deck and the wheel area are both primed and painted separately before being huck bolted together. The result is maximum corrosion resistance, even in places you can’t see, according to the manufacturer.

The wheel area on the new MG also is designed with a longer and deeper mini-boom trough to better accommodate the hitches on agriculture equipment, as well as many kinds of construction equipment.

Other standard equipment on the new MG includes:

• Gooseneck reinforced for flip

• Removable gooseneck rollers

• Air-activated, positive self-locking pin for the gooseneck

• Bent-style D-rings and outrigger brackets

• Adjustable ride height control

• Wide Load sign, flag, and strobe light brackets

• And much more

The Mechanical Detachable Gooseneck trailer is available in 60-, 75-, and 90-thousand-lb. (27,215, 34,019 and 40,823 kg) capacities.

In addition to the new mechanical detachable gooseneck, Trail King manufactures a complete line of trailers, including tags, tilts, hydraulic detachable lowboys, and hydraulic tails and sliding axles; end dump, bottom dump, and side dump trailers; live bottom trailers; pneumatic dry bulk trailers; and hydraulic platform trailers and multi-axle trailers for the specialized hauling industry.
