A semi-trailer doesn’t have a front axle and a road tractor unit handles a significant portion of its weight. Usually, it has “legs” (landing gear) that are lowered to keep it upright when it’s detached from the unit. This detachable trailer’s brakes are engaged automatically when it’s uncoupled; only the air pump of the truck releases the brakes to make it move. The length of this trailer cannot exceed 57 feet on interstate highways unless you get a special permit. If you’ve linked two smaller semi-trailers together, you shouldn’t exceed the length of 63 feet.

Difference between Semi-trailer and Full trailer:

A semitrailer is a trailer with no front axle. The front of the trailer is supported by the tail of the tractor which tows it. When a semitrailer is detached, the front usually is supported by the legs.

Full trailers, on the other hand, have axles either front and back or in the middle, and have a drawbar so that they can be towed behind another vehicle.

If you’ve never operated a semi-truck, assuming they can all serve the same purpose is not unusual. A semi-trailer already differentiates itself from a conventional trailer because it lacks a front axle. There are also several kinds of semi-trailers: all with different capabilities-


Flatbed trailers can haul a maximum weight of 48,000 pounds. However, tri-axle trailers can haul up to 65,000 pounds, making them ideal for heavy cargo.

Common dimensions for flatbeds are as follows:

  • Length- 48 ft – 53 ft
  • Width- 8.5 ft
  • Height- 8.5 ft



Dry vans boast a freight weight of 42,000 pounds to 45,000 pounds, depending on the specific van. A dry van with a tri-axle, however, can haul up to 63,000 pounds. 

Common dry van dimensions are as follows:

  • Length- 48 ft – 53 ft
  • Width- 8.2 ft
  • Height- 8 ft


Refrigerated trailers are designed to transport temperature-sensitive items, such as produce, dairy goods, and other foods. Their max freight weight is 42,000 to 45,000 pounds for a standard refrigerated trailer and 63,000 pounds for a tri-axle.

Common refrigerated trailer dimensions are as follows:

  • Length- 48 ft – 53 ft
  • Width- 8.2 ft
  • Height- 8 ft


Lowboys offer a maximum cargo weight of 40,000 pounds for a standard two-axle trailer. You can add on an additional trailer and cargo combination weight of up to 95,000 pounds depending on the number of axles used.

Common lowboy trailer dimensions are as follows:

  • Length- 24 ft – 29.6 ft
  • Well Height- 18 in – 24 in
  • Width- 8.5 ft
  • Legal Freight Height- 11.5 ft – 12 ft
  • Legal Overall Load Height- 14 ft


Step decks are designed with a maximum freight weight of 48,000 for a standard trailer. A tri-axle offers a freight weight of 65,000 pounds.

Common step deck trailer dimensions are as follows:

  • Length- 48 ft – 53 ft
  • Width- 8.5 ft
  • Height- 10 ft

Dump Trailers

Dump trailers use hydraulics to lift the trailer bed from its frame, making unloading heavy hauls easy and efficient.

On average, large dump trucks can carry roughly 28,000 pounds or about 14 tons. Smaller dump trucks can manage about 13,000 pounds to 15,000 pounds or 6.5 to 7.5 tons. Dump truck pricing can vary widely, so it’s important to consider your needs carefully.

Tanker Trailers

Typically carries gasoline (UN/NA 1203), diesel fuel (fuel oil), liquid fuel products, alcohol, and almost any other kind of flammable or combustible liquids. May sometimes carry non-flammable liquids (e.g., milk or molasses).

Tank trailers are built to hold liquids and dry materials for easy, safe transportation. The tank may be divided into different sections by partitions, allowing drivers to carry different materials in the same load.

Tipper Trailers

A tipper trailer is a trailer with a tipping loading floor. We offer tipper trailers that tip only to the rear, two ways, or even three ways. That way, we offer a solution for any job. Tipper trailers are highly suitable for moving loose cargo, like sand or gravel. Typically, a tipper truck has a capacity of around 20 tonnes.


Air Brake Endorsement

It’s an exam that tests a driver’s ability to inspect air brakes. Understanding system leaks, warning signals, and emergency breaking are all important.

Doubles/Triples Endorsement.

A triples and doubles endorsement is a certification that authorizes you to drive a semi-truck with multiple trailers attached. These vehicles are sometimes referred to as longer combination vehicles (LCVs).

Tanker Endorsement

A tanker endorsement is a certification attached to a trucker’s commercial driver’s license (CDL) signifying their legal ability to transport bulk quantities of liquids and gasses via truck. Signified by the letter N, drivers with these endorsements have passed all of the legally mandated safety and equipment training needed to haul these products.

Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HAZMAT)

HAZMAT is an abbreviation for “hazardous materials”—substances in quantities or forms that may pose a reasonable risk to health, property, or the environment.

 A hazmat endorsement is an additional certification added to a commercial driver’s license (CDL) that allows drivers to transport hazardous materials. 


When operating any trailer, it’s not just about how you decide the trailer to be designed or how large a manufacturer can create a trailer to be. There are certain Rules and Regulations which the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration has decided about and abiding by those Laws is mandatory. Hence having proper knowledge about the Regulations is so important to avoid further problems. But that”s what we are here, our expert team is very well aware of all the facts and will guide you according to your needs and Location When hauling cargo across state lines, it is critical to understand what semi-trailer dimensions are allowed and what requires additional permitting. Different states have their regulations for oversize load permitting, which can make the matter even more complex. 

But to give a basic idea about generic requirements:

  • 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight
  • 20,000 pounds single axle weight
  • 34,000 pounds tandem axle weight
