About Flatbed Trailers
Kaufman Trailers manufactures a full line of flatbed trailers for sale in six different unique styles. “Flatbed Trailers” is defined as having the deck over the tires with no fenders. There are usually stake pockets and rub rail down the sides of the trailer. Our standard flatbed line is offered with GVWR’s ranging from 14,000 to 25,000 lb. Our heavy equipment models are built with heavy duty pierced frame construction and airbrake axles with GVWR’s up to 62,000. We are especially proud of our drop deck line. These models feature high tensile, fabricated main frames with 24 ft. of frame depth, and are the standard of the industry. Our pavers have heavy duty pierced main frame I-beams and either spring assisted bi-fold 9 ft. ramps or hydraulic ramps. This makes for easy loading of paver equipment. For really heavy hauling, we also offer Removable Gooseneck Trailers (RGN) in spring and air ride with up to 55 tons of capacity.

“Flatbed Trailers” is a very broadly used term in the trailer industry. Depending on the company or the person making the definition, you can be talking about anything from a small tandem axle trailer with only a few thousand pounds of hauling capacity, all the way up to an over-the-road 48 ft. “flatbed” trailer that is pulled by a semi truck.
Just wanted to email you to say that we have received the flatbed trailer and are very pleased with the experience of buying it from you.
Just a note to tell you how happy I am with the flatbed trailer I purchased from you. It truly is one of the few items I have ever bought that when I got it home and began to examine it closely found out that was better than what I thought I had bought.
