Gooseneck Concession Trailers
Are you planning to venture into the food service business? Are you looking at food concession trailers? If you are, you may notice that there are concession trailers and there are gooseneck concession trailers. Gooseneck concession trailers are for the larger operator and high volume service, and for those that are constantly traveling across the nation.
What Makes Gooseneck Concession Trailers Different and Why Buy One?
Different hitch. A regular trailer uses a regular ball mount or square receiver hitch and the trailer is behind the vehicle towing it. A Gooseneck uses a kingpin, ball, and socket, this is known as a Gooseneck hitch (which is how this trailer got its name).
Gooseneck trailers can be easier to maneuver on the road. They have a tighter turning radius due to how they are made.
More stable ride. With the hitch installation and a portion of the trailer’s weight over the back axle of the truck, these trailers have higher stability. This reduces the amount of sway from high winds, the amount of stress on equipment, and the movement of stored items
More storage space available. A Gooseneck trailer can be bigger and offers the space that continues over the truck as extra storage space.
Increase your trailer size. With the hitch and the added stability, your truck can tow a larger-size trailer. The weight can be balanced over the truck’s back axle and less on the bumper like a traditional trailer.
Gooseneck trailers can be built according to your needs and budget. A Gooseneck trailer can fit more people and can have larger width windows so it can accommodate larger crowds with an order window and a pickup window.
Questions to Ask your Gooseneck Concession Trailer Builder
What vehicle can tow a gooseneck trailer? A Gooseneck hitch will need to have modifications to your truck for the hitch installation. Having a dedicated vehicle is recommended.
