Fontaine Heavy-Haul has launched 53-foot Xcalibur extendable trailers that are California legal.
The four new Xcalibur extendable models are 53 feet in the closed position and 90 feet fully opened. When the trailers are closed and the sliding axles are in their most forward position, the distance between the kingpin and the rear axle center is less than 40 feet (making these trailers legal to operate in the state of California).
“We listened to our customers and responded with four, 53-foot California legal models offering a choice of spring or air suspension with tandem or tridem axles,” said Todd Anderson, vice president sales and marketing. “All Xcalibur trailers are easy to operate, extraordinarily versatile and now legal on California roads.”
Xcalibur is designed for maximum uptime. An innovative cable management system helps protect telescoping air and electrical lines from damage. Sliding axles are attached to the trailer in a “Slider Box” so they move together as a unit. For greater strength and durability steel I-Beam crossmembers are welded on 12 inch centers. Steel reinforced mainbeams, structural steel siderails and steel front & rear skirts complete the heavy-duty design.
