Q. What benefits does Gooseneck have over similarly styled trailers?
A. Gooseneck is the premier brand of trailers and features superior materials and design. They are built stronger to last longer and have been built by us for over 40 years. Our trailers are backed by a limited 5 year warranty.
Our Gooseneck trailers are built of heavy commercial grade materials. Some similarly styled trailers are built of light weight materials that are not intended for everyday heavy duty use. For example: 1) Our trailers’ bodies are one and one-half times thicker than some of the other similar styled trailers. 2) Our piping is full schedule 40 pipe instead of thin wall tubing in such things as sides, gate, and crossgates – unlike some of the other brands. 3) Goodyear tires are standard on our trailers. 4) We use 1/4” camber axles which are stronger than the 3/16” straight axles used by some similar style trailers. There are other differences also in the fabrication of our trailers which help to provide the long term dependable usage our customers have come to expect. Remember, “Built Stronger to Last Longer” is not just our slogan, it is the defining feature of our Gooseneck trailers.
