Tandem Trailer Chassis Design.

The R.A.S.V. Light Tactical, Flat Deck Trailer Chassis can be configured for almost any application and a variety of load handling capabilities to specifically match your requirement.

It all starts with LS 4.4’s unique chassis design.

The main design feature of our trailer frame is the 114 x 5mm central draw bar that runs the full length of the trailer chassis allowing the sub frame to flex and move as it negotiates rough off road terrain.
The hot dipped galvanised chassis is made of laser cut c – section cross members and open ended rectangular hollow section steel allowing for easy wash down and cleaning, with no closed in areas where mud, sand and salt can become trapped and cause corrosion.

Secondary Sub Frame.

Sitting above the main chassis you will find another secondary chassis sub frame. That supports the deck plating or trailer body. Unlike other trailers, the body is separated from the chassis with the use of high-density polyurethane body mounts. Which operate in the same way as the body mounts on your tow vehicle. Helping to isolate the body from high speed off road vibrations. Caused by corrugations and uneven terrain.

Weighing in at just over 700kg, the R.A.S.V. is lighter than most single axle off road trailers on the market today. The tandem axle design also gives you the added benefits of four wheel flotation and greater suspension articulation. With twice the braking power and added stability off road.

Off Road Ability.

Remote off-road exploration is what this ultimate off road trailer frame was made for. Being conscious of the restricted maneuvering area on off road tracks. We have carefully thought out the chassis design, dimensions and over all ground clearance. Allow you to venture out into areas that conventional off road trailers simply can’t go. The single draw bar configuration also gives you an advantage over traditional A Frame trailer designs. By allowing you to maneuver the trailer into an over 90* jack knife position behind the tow vehicle. Giving you a much tighter turning circle and reversing capability off road.

By keeping the trailer dimensions within the width of most tow vehicles we have also been able to increase the maneuverability off road through tight areas. Along narrow tree lined outback tracks, or along tight, twisting mountain roads. Keeping the Off Road Trailer dimensions in line with the tow vehicle also improves vehicle handling and fuel efficiency. By reducing the amount of wind and drag that you are likely to encounter during higher speed on road travel.

The unique Independently supported Secondary Sub Frame is mounted on 20 neoprene body mounts.

While still allowing the main chassis to move and flex whilst negotiating rough terrain.

Sub Frame / Deck Area : 3.0 mtrs long x 1.75 mtrs wide.
