Stepframe truck bodies are associated with the low-loader family, allowing particularly tall pieces of equipment to be transported where normal flatbeds would be unsuitable. You can also find modern curtainsider bodies that harness the stepframe approach to provide an increased capacity for goods, as well as second deck set-ups that make them more versatile. There are many used stepframe trailers available to purchase with extra features to improve things such as handling, ride quality and safety. So it is important to thoroughly examine any second-hand unit to see how it has handled the stress and strain of use and also to establish whether it will be right for you.
A standard open stepframe trailer will feature two decks that can vary in size significantly. The higher deck sits closest to the cab and may be compact to allow the lower deck to take up the majority of the length. The ratio of these decks to one another will determine the types of equipment that the trailer can accommodate. For very large pieces of equipment with a lot of height, including tractors, excavators and other agricultural and industrial machinery, a stepframe of this kind will be an ideal transportation solution.

Beavertail ramps can generally be found at the rear of these trailers, with hydraulic operation being the most convenient method of raising and lowering the ramps to provide access to the load bed. Stabilising struts may also be featured, and some models offer integrated extendable sliders to alter the length of the trailer depending on the load that is being handled.
When it comes to manoeuvring heavy equipment into place, a winch may be included so that operators do not require secondary equipment to get the job done. Modern models may even boast hydraulic steering on the trailer for enhanced handling and improved performance through tight turns. With so many variations of the stepframe trailer on the market, including slopebed models that will have a gradually inclining loadbed rather than a two deck set-up, it is important to research the market thoroughly.
Curtainsider stepframe trailers are not built for equipment haulage but instead have the ability to make the transporting of goods more efficient. Rather than leaving much of the interior volume wasted, a stepframe trailer gives you greater capacity and more room to accommodate an upper deck. Hydraulically or mechanically adjustable upper decks may be featured on some models, which can help with varying load sizes and also to streamline unloading. Lifts and other elements may also be included, and the versatility of this kind of trailer configuration will lead to custom models being created to suit the needs of race teams. The used stepframe trailer market really is packed with different options for buyers.
When looking at used stepframe trailers, you will want a prospective model to feature systems which not only meet your needs but also operate as advertised. Checking the state of the tyres, suspension, hydraulics, frame and decks will allow you to choose a reliable stepframe trailer.
