RGN trailers are created so the gooseneck in the front can be removed, making the trailer itself a ramp for easy equipment loading.

What is a Removable Gooseneck (RGN) Trailer?

A removable gooseneck (RGN) trailer is one of the most versatile trailer designs available. Its removable neck allows for the deck to drop down on a trailer, so you can drive the vehicle or equipment onto the platform. Invented in 1958 by August Fruehauf, a German immigrant and blacksmith in Detroit, the RGN trailer has become one of the most popular methods of equipment transport. Because the front detaches, allow the trailer to be lowered to the ground as a ramp, it makes loading and unloading quick and easy.

Heavy Haulers is the industry-leading RGN carrier company. We move freight on regular RGN trailers, extended RGN trailers, and stretch RGN trailers. We know the ins and outs of moving removable gooseneck transport. Whatever equipment you need to haul, we've got it covered. We're here day or night. Give us a call for a free shipping estimate!

What is a Stretch RGN and When Do You Need One?

A stretch RGN or stretch removable gooseneck trailer is specifically designed to transport freight that exceeds the maximum length dimensions for a regular RGN trailer. Most stretch RGN trailers do exactly that. While it may start out at the regular RGN length, if the freight is too long, the midsection of the trailer can be expanded to support and safely ship the oversize load.

You need a stretch RGN trailer if your equipment or machinery extends past 29ft in length. A stretch RGN is then utilized to haul anything that is up to 74ft in length and can hold equipment up to 150,000lbs. Stretch RGNs are versatile and commonly used for equipment such as excavators, motor grader, loaders, and more. At Heavy Haulers we have stretch RGNs ready to transport your equipment today. Each stretch RGN shipment is safely secured and hauled by an experienced driver, so you know that your heavy equipment is in dependable hands.

RGN Trailer vs. Lowboy Trailer

There are several differences between an RGN trailer and a lowboy trailer. Both are versatile trailers that are used for hauling heavy equipment and oversize loads. However, while an RGN detaches from the front allowing it to be used as a ramp for drivable equipment, the lowboy trailer is loaded from the rear and can’t be dropped any lower. Lowboys have an additional benefit of being able to add axles for increased weight capacity. This, along with the dropdown feature, allows for taller and heavier equipment to be transported without additional permits. RGN trailers have a low center of gravity, usually making it more stable. At Heavy Haulers, our transport specialists will determine whether an RGN trailer or lowboy trailer is the best option for your oversize load. Call now! (800) 908-6206

What You Need to Know About removable Gooseneck Trailer Transport

Removable Gooseneck(RGN) trailers are an extremely versatile way to transport oversized and heavy cargo. RGNs consist of a gooseneck where the trailer connects to the truck, a drop deck, and a step back up over the axles (2, 3, or 4 axles are standard). They come in regular and extended RGN trailers.

RGN and extended RGN transport trailers, which can be used in a number of different configurations, get their name from the fact that the front end detaches, allowing vehicles to drive onto the trailer for transport.

Extended RGNs are another variety of gooseneck trailer, in which the drop deck can be extended to a standard maximum length of 61 feet, with the entire trailer's maximum length at 74 feet. The drop deck on a standard RGN gives the trailer an additional foot of height for oversized cargo.

RGNs are able to be configured over 2 to 4 axles to meet a client's unique hauling needs, making RGNs and extendable RGNs favorable options for hauling a number of complex machines and other oversized cargo.

Removable Goose Neck (RGN) Trailer Shipping an Excavator

Should You Use an RGN Or an Extended RGN?

A standard RGN is often used when hauling cargo around 30 feet long or less. The double drop in the trailer allows taller cargo to be transported securely over long distances. If cargo is longer, anywhere up to around 61 feet, an extended RGN should be used and extended to the optimal length for the cargo in question.
