Doonan Specialized Trailer, LLC has designed and manufactured a new ‘Series 2’ V-channel trough flatbed coil haul trailer for special loading applications where coils cannot be transferred into and from a recessed trailer well, but still require safe securement on the flatbed.
The 44’ x 96”, 110,000# GVWR, all-steel, tri-axle trailer with bulkhead, cradles 3’ to 7’ diameter steel coils shotgun style inside a V-shaped, rubber-lined steel trough on the center surface of the flatbed. This channel cribbing cushions the coils and allows for efficient loading and removal from the trailer.
A convenient walkway on both sides of the channel allows for easy inspection of the load. Tie-downs can be applied by a driver from alongside the trailer to further support the securement of the coils, via a sliding winch track on both sides. The Series 2 trailer includes two custom main beams, ABS system, and Hendrickson HT suspension. A sliding tarp system (not shown) eliminates the need for the driver to tarp the load.
