Deckover Hot Shot Trailers
Hotshot drivers that want tandem dual running gear and a full 102″ deck will need a deckover trailer. PJ models include the FD, LD, & SD models. PJ makes a low profile, Low Pro gooseneck with a 33″ deck height (LD model). The low profile uses a pierce beam design to run crossmembers through the main frame of the trailer dropping the deck height around 5 inches. Our standard flatdeck with duals has a 38″ deck height and is also ideal for hot shot trailers.
Low Boy Hot Shot Trailers
Some operators want their trailer to be as low as possible and opt for a single wheel “low boy” style trailer ( C8 & B8 models). These trailers have a 28″ deck height with a 83″ wide deck (C8) and 102″ wide deck with drive over fenders (B8). These trailers offer a lower center of gravity, can haul low clearance vehicles, and can haul taller loads. Tradeoffs include “tire scrubbing” when making tight turns on triple axle trailers. Also, since the trailer has fenders it can limit the types of equipment and cargo than can be hauled.
