Doonan® Specialized Trailer LLC, a leading manufacturer of platform trailers, including custom flatbeds, drop decks, oilfield trailers, extendibles, RGN lowbeds and double drops, announced today, they’ve developed an innovative boat trailer design solution for one of America’s industry leading boat manufacturers.
Doonan’s advanced engineering and manufacturing processes were key in the design of a niche’ series of 48’ x 102” Black Gold™ Dropdeck trailers, encompassing a 10’ top deck, V–type cross-members and a 5’ rear pull-out extension.
The 90,000# GVWR rated trailer was developed to haul either a load of boats lying flat, or a stacked load, standing at an angle on custom racks that fit a specialized stake pocket design. Doonan’s innovative design incorporates a custom V-configurement at the rear of the top deck, and in the V’d center section of the trailer. This feature allows room for the hull of the boat to ‘set-in and seat lower,’ in order to stay under overall height legal requirements.
Additional features built into the custom boat trailer include, an Apitong wood floor at the rear and along the sides of the center V-design, to allow for convenient backhaul, which means more revenue added to the bottom line of every haul. This trailer is also equipped with specially designed stake pockets and dual rubrails (unique to the boating industry); along with a TIREMAAX® PRO Air Inflation System for increased tire life.
