Exploring the Benefits of Gooseneck Trailers

Easily recognizable by their distinctive “stretched necks,” gooseneck trailers are a great option for hauling large cargo, small loads, and everything in between! At Factory Outlet Trailers, we pride ourselves on having the largest inventory of trailers across Western Canada, including various gooseneck trailers. Next, we will explain some of the benefits of gooseneck trailers and factors to consider if you want to purchase one. Keep reading to find out more. 

Advantages of Gooseneck Trailers

Compared to bumper-pull trailers, gooseneck trailers offer several advantages that can make hauling your trailer and cargo easier. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increased Stability: Since the tongue weight of gooseneck trailers aligns over the tow vehicle’s rear axle rather than at the back of the frame, sway is reduced. This increases the overall stability of the trailer. 
  • Greater Towing Capacity: With increased stability also comes a greater towing capacity, partly due to the placement of the hitching components over the rear axle rather than the back of the tow vehicle’s frame. 
  • Additional Space: The “gooseneck” portion of the trailer can also provide additional space, especially compared to other cargo-style trailers. Whether you use this space for extra storage or something else, Factory Outlet Trailers can customize your gooseneck trailer to suit your needs. 
  • Maneuverability: Because of the configuration of gooseneck trailers, they also have a tighter turning radius than many bumper trailers. That means maneuvering should be a breeze, whether hauling a large trailer with precious cargo or navigating tight city streets. 

Factors to Consider Before Purchasing

Before you decide to buy a gooseneck trailer from Factory Outlet Trailers, you should consider a few factors. For instance:

  • Trailer Size and Load Capacity: Like many other styles of trailers, goosenecks are available in various sizes. You’ll want to match both your tow vehicle’s size and load capacity and the cargo you plan to haul to ensure safe transportation. 
  • Axle Configuration: Tandem axle gooseneck trailers typically have a higher load capacity and greater stability, while single axle options are often more affordable and easier to maneuver. So, depending on your cargo and hauling needs, one axle configuration may be a better choice than the other. 
  • Customization: At Factory Outlet Trailers, we can customize your gooseneck to suit your needs. Whether that means installing cabinets, E-tracks, additional tie-downs, or something else, our trailer experts can make your gooseneck a perfect hauling solution for you! 

Our trailer experts will be able to walk you through these factors to ensure you invest in a gooseneck trailer that meets your hauling needs. But if you have any questions regarding which style of gooseneck trailer would be best for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to Factory Outlet Trailers!
