Unit 617203 – Black Gold™ Coil Haul Trailer

This 48’ x 96” trailer was developed specifically for hauling steel coils shotgun style (where the eye of the coil is facing forward), recessed inside a well. Designed with two outer perimeter beams with 1” x 5” top and bottom flanges, the trailer features a well opening in the center that measures 19’ long x 76” wide, with recessed concave beams to safely secure the coil load. Coils can range in size from something relatively small like 5,000 lbs. to over 60,000 lbs. Doonan’s flatbed Coil Haul trailer’s Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is 98,000#. The GVWR is based on a tri-axle trailer with disc brakes. The trailer is also designed to have a tarp system installed, so the coils are protected from the elements. Click HERE to learn more.


Unit 614810 – Black Gold™ Boat Trailer

Doonan’s advanced engineering and manufacturing processes were key in the design of this 48’ x 102” drop deck trailer, encompassing a 10’ top deck, V–type cross-members and a 5’ rear pull-out extension. The 90,000# GVWR rated trailer was developed to haul either a load of boats lying flat, or a stacked load, standing at an angle on custom racks that fit a specialized stake pocket design. Doonan’s innovative design incorporates a custom V-configurement at the rear of the top deck, and in the V’d center section of the trailer. This feature allows room for the hull of the boat to ‘set-in and seat lower,’ in order to stay under overall height legal requirements. Click HERE to learn more.


Detachable Dovetail

The detachable dovetail is a must have option for anyone wishing to load wheeled or track vehicles on their Doonan steel or combo drop deck trailer. This versatile option can be designed to fit drop decks with rear deck heights ranging from 35” to 41”. The units are built with either 4” steel or 5” aluminum cross-members, and have either aluminum or steel side rails to match the design of the mating trailer. Like the traditional fixed dovetail, the detachable can be installed with up to three ramps and a variety of floors including wood, aluminum and steel self-cleaning lugs. Unlike the traditional fixed dovetail, the detachable unit can be removed to allow the user greater functionality of the base trailer. The mating trailer will need to be equipped with a standard female 7-way receptacle in the rear in order to operate the two (2) standard taillights and the single pair of side-marker lights. The detachable dovetail is provided with all the necessary hardware to mount the unit and traditionally comes in black, but can be special order in a variety of other colors.
