Aspen launches latest trailer

Aspen Custom Trailers has introduced the M5500-8 commercial trailer.

The M5500-8 features a flush deck measuring 26 ft (8 m), swing-out outriggers and a rear frame suitable for a fourth flip axle.

"The new Aspen M5500-8 commercial trailer offers a 116 inch (2.9 m) gooseneck swing, meaning you can get under the trailer with your four-axle tractor without being punished by the extra weight and hassle of flipping an extension" explained John Zork, Aspen's vice president.

Aspen says the hydraulic removable gooseneck lowbed, which has a payload of 55 tons (50 tonnes), can be customised, options include bolted load bearing wheel covers, a hydraulic third axle, a fourth flip axle module and a single axle booste.
