If you are considering a gooseneck trailer rental or purchase, you will need to decide on the right trailer configuration. There are some big difference between trailers with mega ramps and those with slide-in ramps.
The mega ramps on newer gooseneck trailers have are spring loaded.
The ramps are fixed to the trailer, but the movement of the ramps is
very light weight compared to the old style ramps which were extremely
heavy. The other advantage is mega ramps are full-width of the trailer.
Disadvantages: The negative is that you will lose 5 feet of flat deck space if are loading with the ramps. For example, if you are loading vehicles or equipment, the last 5 feet of the trailer is where your ramps will be positioned once your are finished loading.
Advantages: There are a couple benefits to a gooseneck trailer rental with slide-in ramps. FIrst, they provide a full 40 feet of flat deck space. Second, the trailer is typically lighter in weight. The average weight of a 40 ft Big Tex 22GN trailer is about 8,100 lbs, which is about 1,000 pounds lighter in weight than the average 40' Big Tex 25GN gooseneck with mega ramps. The lighter your empty trailer weight is, the more weight capacity you will gain. Keep in mind, some trailers come with 10K lb axles and some have 12K axles. Axle weight will affect load capacity and weight limits.
Disadvantages: There are also a couple drawbacks with slide-in ramp gooseneck trailers. First, there is no dove tail, which means there's no lowered portion of the deck in the rear for loading. Second,
the ramps are narrow and can be heavy to lift when setting up at the
rear of the trailer. However, for someone who doesn't need to utilize
the ramps often, the disadvantages may not be as much of a concern.
