Doonan Specialized Trailer

Doonan Specialized Trailer has designed and manufactured a new Series 2 V-channel trough flatbed coil haul trailer for special loading applications where coils cannot be transferred into and from a recessed trailer well, but still require safe securement on the flatbed.

The 44-foot x 96-inch, 110,000-pound GVWR, all-steel, tri-axle trailer with bulkhead, cradles 3- to 7-foot diameter steel coils shotgun style inside a V-shaped, rubber-lined steel trough on the center surface of the flatbed. The channel cribbing cushions the coils and allows for efficient loading and removal from the trailer.

“The new ‘Series 2’ V-channel coil haul trailer is a niche’ market trailer that we designed to address a need in the marketplace,” said Kelly Zecha, national dealer manager and application specialist at Doonan.

A walkway on both sides of the channel allows for easy inspection of the load. Tie-downs can be applied by a driver from alongside the trailer to further support the securement of the coils through a sliding winch track on both sides.

Designed for strength and reliability in heavy-haul coil transport, the trailer features components like the two custom main beams, ABS system, and Hendrickson HT. A sliding tarp system is also added to eliminate the driver having to tarp the load
