thinking of trying to make a lite weight lo profile car hauler with a gooseneck hitch to be tilting...

Seems to me one should be able to use a cylinder in the neck to raise the whole trailer

anyone ever seen this or tried it?
thanks

Yup saw one at the sale in Archbold Oh one time. The neck just tilted forward as the deck came up. That let the tail hit the ground. You can probably buy one if you look around. To make one would be a lot of work and cost.

Why not just built a tilt bed gooseneck. Very simple, subframe it back to near the front spring hanger and add a hyd cylinder and a 12v. powerpack to do the tilting?

Yes, I could probably buy one but have the goosseneck trailer already, and just want to eliminate ramps...felt it should be easy to raise to design something but am kind at a loss on exactly what ....

In otherwords..looking for a cheap-(isn't everyone?) easy fix...

I know years ago there were some machinery trailers that raised the hitch to tilt..but can't seem to find any info now.

Thanks for the response and your advice..I do not often actually post on this forumn but do read a lot ...good site
thanks
Mike

Our tractor clubs pulling sled has a tongue like I think you are talking about. It a has a hydraulic cylinder mounted to the side of the ball mount and a 12v Hyd power pack. I will take some pictures. I have also seen a gooseneck ball mount mounted on a square trailer jack. Either of these set-ups will level the trailer but I don't think you can get enough travel to tilt the trailer for loading. I personally like the idea of a hydraulic dovetail.

you might also take a look at one of those equipment trailers that semis have where the axles slide forward hydraulically,that drops the rear of the trailer on the ground,its loaded,then the axles are slid back into position for travel,you might be able to duplicate that setup on your trailer ,im not sure if you can get the gooseneck to raise enough to get the back end to the ground, unless you use a long cylinder like for a dump truck which is very heavy ,and pivoting with the axles being the hinge, it would have to go quite a way up to get the backend on the ground it might be too steep to load then

Look at Landoll 300 series on their website, you might get some ideas for yours, or watch for a used one like that as they aren"t real expensive. I have one that I haul tractors in with. Upside, haul anything. downside, heavy, max load is about 20000, and too much for a dually pickup, too little for a road tractor. Hope it helps. Adam

thanks for all comments....I already have the trailer built that I want to tilt..

Welding man...could you e-mail me a pic sometime of the one your club has?

Just looking for the easiest way to tilt an existing trailer...

I have seen the ones where the whole gooseneck hitch tilts--that would be my next option but would take quite a bit more effort....

thanks again

There is one down the road that has a telescopic post for a hitch, heavy square tubing sliding in a square tube with a hyd cyl on the out side to lift it(telescope) It could be built in to almost any trailer.

My next trailer will be a State Line GTH (goose tilt high deck). Little more cost, but, WHOA! Easy to load.
