Best in class load angle.

Low 10.5° load angle is perfect for low clearance equipment. The low "break over" point protects the trailer from jolting impacts when loading track equipment. It's a great solutions for rental and construction applications. Saves time with every load.

Flat full-width upper deck with 18K winch is standard.

The gooseneck upper deck length is 9' 10" to easily accommodate vehicles, equipment or cargo. An 18K winch with wireless remote control is standard equipment. The winch features an air release for easy “free wheeling”. An optional winch guard helps protect the winch from damage. If you need more beef you can upgrade to a 20K Warn winch.

Dual locking tool boxes for convenience and security.

Locking tool boxes on both sides of the winch feature a gas shock to dampen the movement. This helps prevent the tool box lid from falling onto fingers or hands.

Convenient controls on both sides of the gooseneck.

• Winch air release for "free wheeling"
• Tail locks
• Air dump valve
• Work lights
• Ramp locks
• Operational controls

Easy to operate.

Four operating levers control the winch, front ramp, main tail and flip tail. The lever control box is protected by steel plates to help prevent damage to expensive valve components. The remote control is standard equipment and controls the winch and the rear tail mechanism.

Convenient grab handle and step.

A grab handle and steel fold-out step on both sides of the trailer makes it easy to get on and off the deck.

Full width front ramp.

Easy-to-operate front ramp features a 13° angle to make loading low ground clearance equipment easier. There's enough room to handle two 19' scissor lifts on the front of the deck. Traction plates and convenient tie down points are standard.

Industry leading rear ramp with 10.5° load angle.

The superior ramp design features a break point forward of the rear axle center. This permits a longer tail for a lower load angle. Loading low ground clearance equipment is easier than ever with the Fontaine TraverseHT.

Heavy-duty ramp hinge.

The full width heavy-duty three-piece hinge is stronger than the typical “piano hinge” type used by the competition. It features grease points for easier lubrication, lower maintenance cost and longer product life.

Superior stability.

Dual flip-tail locks make contact with the ground to support the load. This helps prevent the trailer from rocking side-to-side when loading heavy equipment–including large track equipment.

Industry leading hydraulic flip-tail.

Flip-tail is easy to deploy and stow. Mechanical locks are easy to deploy and stay engaged even if the trailer loses hydraulic pressure.
