Fontaine Heavy-Haul is introducing 53-ft. Xcalibur extendable trailers that are California legal, the lowbed and extendable trailer specialist reports.

“We listened to our customers and responded with four 53-ft. California legal models offering a choice of spring or air suspension with tandem or tridem axles,” Todd Anderson, vice president of sales and marketing, said. “All Xcalibur trailers are easy to operate, extraordinarily versatile and now legal on California roads.”

The four new Xcalibur extendable models are 53 feet in the closed position and 90 feet fully opened, according to Fontaine Heavy-Haul. When the trailers are closed and the sliding axles are in their most forward position, the distance between the kingpin and the rear axle center is less than 40 feet (making these trailers legal to operate in the state of California).

Xcalibur is designed for maximum uptime, the manufacturer notes. An innovative cable management system helps protect telescoping air and electrical lines from damage. Sliding axles are attached to the trailer in a “slider box” so they move together as a unit.

For greater strength and durability steel I-Beam crossmembers are welded on 12-inch centers. Steel reinforced mainbeams, structural steel siderails and steel front and rear skirts complete the heavy-duty design.
