Advantages of Gooseneck Trailers

Choosing the right trailer can make all the difference when hauling heavy loads, whether for work or recreational purposes. The term ‘gooseneck’ refers to the design of the trailer’s neck, which differs from traditional trailers that use a standard bumper pull ball hitch. Gooseneck trailers have a hitching mechanism that attaches to a ball mount typically installed in the bed of a truck. Let’s take a closer look at the difference between gooseneck and bumper pull trailers, and explore the unique features and advantages so you can have the confidence to decide which trailer is best for you.

Gooseneck Advantages

When it comes to transporting heavy loads, a gooseneck hitch provides a more secure connection between the trailer and towing vehicle compared to the traditional ball hitch. The design of the gooseneck hitch is better suited for handling larger loads with ease while also distributing the weight over the rear axle, reducing strain on the tow vehicle. This makes it an ideal choice for those needing to safely and reliably transport heavy cargo.

Features include:

  • ENGINEERED BEAM Frame & Neck: Our gooseneck trailers have a 10 gauge Grade 80 material curved neck that hitches to the truck bed and is one continuous piece of metal making less stress points and an overall stronger neck. Our frame is Grade 100 material and is engineered beam-equipped. These trailers are stronger and lighter, boasting the best strength-to-weight ratio of any steel-frame gooseneck. As a result, they offer higher payload capacity than most comparable trailers.
  • Range of Movement: The design of gooseneck trailers allows for sharper turns and better maneuverability compared to bumper pull trailers. Backing up a gooseneck trailer is easier than a bumper pull because the pivot point is closer to the truck’s rear wheels, making it easier to control and maneuver. Plus, the trailer is more stable and it’s easier to see when lining up the hitch, making the whole process simple for the driver.
