These trailers are called a “singledrop” or “dropdeck” trailers. The advantage is that this trailer over standard flatbed is they can haul a higher (taller) load without having to buy permits for the transport. Most trailers are 48′ long. It is also available in a 53′ length. The upper deck is usually either 10′ or 11′ long. On a 48′ trailer, the lower deck would either be 37′ or 38′. The typical stepdeck trailer is 39 or 40″ high at the rear. Occasionally, these trailers are 42″ high. The construction of the stepdeck makes it a heavier trailer than a flatbed. The stepdeck can transport a whopping 44,000 to 45000#.
