- Detachable gooseneck trailers. Often used to haul farm equipment, Landoll RGNs feature two or three axles. If needed, a fourth axle can flip down.
- Traveling-tail trailers. These trailers feature drop-down tails that provide rear-loading opportunities. Tails as long as 15 feet, with 11-degree angles.

To move your largest loads in the most efficient manner possible, Landoll trailers are the professional’s choice.
Loading a Landoll Trailer
The larger the equipment, the more difficult it is to load and unload. Between the tilting of the deck and the angle of the ramps, the ground-loading features of a Landoll traveling axle trailer are perfect for a one-man transportation project.
Landoll trailers’ better angles allow you to safely transport heavier equipment. There’s even a Landoll trailer that makes it easier to transfer cargo from train cars to the trailer. The steps for loading a Landoll traveling axle trailer include:
