A flatbed or (highboy) trailer is a typical type of flat deck style trailers. They are commonly used on a wide scale due to their versatility. The flatbed trailer is an asset to any trucking company or shipper as it can be loaded from the sides, top, or rear. This trailer length is typically 48′, 53′ or 60′ long and 8’6″ wide. It can accommodate weights up to 48,000 lbs, 65,000 lbs or 96,000 lbs respectively. As the trailer deck sits about 4’8″ off the ground, this creates some interesting difficulties when transporting any shipments that are over 8’6″ high
This model represents a spread axle highboy 48’ trailer.
This model is a great addition to a diorama or collection.
