Gooseneck extending skeletal

The Gooseneck Extending Skeletal is designed for European operations, the benefit to the operator is that it can transport any container, within the 4m height limit, imposed in some European countries, whilst operating at a 1090/1100mm 5th wheel height

The trailer has a manual pull out front and manual wind out rear, with the centre extension being completed by the truck to configure the trailer for any container configuration.

Our Gooseneck extending skeletal is different from other current European designs, the difference is that the 20’ heavy container can be moved to the rear for unloading in loading bays. The trailer can also be specified to meet ADR requirements.

Benefits of SDC's Gooseneck Extending Skeletal:

  • Multi-functional design provides flexibility of operations
  • Highly durable design providing low maintenance
  • High residual value

Flexible operation to suit the operator

Manual pull out front for 45’, 13.6m or 40 ft container positions. Manual mechanical wind out rear section for 45’, 13.6m or 40 ft container positions.


Slim neck design

The trailer has a slim neck design with lower profile tyres for reduced centre of gravity, resulting in increased stability and low rolling resistance.

Maximum durability

Stainless steel wear pads are fitted to the chassis to void the locking pin scoring the chassis and therefore alleviates rusting. Heavy duty steel rollers are used for a longer life.

Gooseneck Extending Skeletal Locking System

SDC front lock system
