Double Expandable Trailer Description – This vehicle has sold
This 2007 Featherlite Double Expandable Trailer is for lease or sale.
The trailer is had light use and is in remarkable condition for its age. The trailer was originally a production trailer used to film ESPN’s “Tech Garage”. The show traveled to events and brought actual race cars inside the trailer to be picked apart. As a result this trailer has a somewhat unique feature for an expandable, a car elevator, on the rear. This makes this trailer an ideal unit for a mobile car display or large equipment. It also makes bringing in or swapping displays in the field very easy.
Along with the car elevator the trailer has two rear facing doors allowing good traffic flow in and out of the display area. A third door in the nose allows separate access to the “tech room”, storage, or lounge area depending on how you choose to use it. The unit comes with two sets of staircases and landings.
The “box in box” style of double expandable allows simple and quick setup by one person. After leveling the trailer with a single wired remote for the hydraulic leg system the trailer is ready to expand. To extend the slides an electric remote is plugged into each side and a single operator simply presses the “open” button. The trailer is extended by a geared motor rather than hydraulics keeping operations and maintenance fairly simple. To close the trailer the process is reversed using the “closed” button.
Check out this video of a stage and canopy trailer being setup compared to the push button operation described above. Stage and canopy trailers have different strengths versus box in box. For applications where setup speed and a single or small road crew are desired, such as a B2b mobile tour, the box in box may be the best solution. The “box in box” style works well for mobile classrooms, hospitality trailers, mobile meeting facilities, mobile command centers and certain mobile displays.
Another variable when it comes to single or double expandable trailers is the floor. Some units fold up vertically others others retract according style. Some require manual removal of sections of floor to allow the slides to retract, this adds to setup time.
Once again this trailer ops for simplicity and speed. The floor folds up according style using the same button that extends or retracts the slide. When pressing open the slide will extend fully and then automatically be followed by the floor extending, all with the push of a button. As long as the trailer was leveled properly the display area floor will be level.
When closing the trailer the same thing is true. Pressing the “close” button first retracts the floor then the slide retracts, all with one button push. Once open a few small pieces of flooring must be laid down to cover the slide rails but these small, light weight and take a few minutes total.
All double expandable’s are not the same. Manufactures and the style of the trailer come into play. Featherlite is at the top of the list for custom expandable trailer manufacturing and has been for quite a while. They boast solid engineering and the team at Featherlite is always ready to help answer a question. When it comes time to retrofit the trailer or if new customizations are desired Featherlite can usually give you a good bit of information just from the VIN. Centrally located in the US Featherlite is available for service or support as needed.
