Lowboy Trailers are an “old school” term used for RGN’s. The only difference is that they have ramps on the backside for driving a piece of equipment up into the well.

“This morning we’re going to go over the Lowboy Trailer, which is basically an old school way of a saying a detacher or an RGN, the difference is old school way of an RGN is, ramps on the backside and driving the piece of equipment into the well.
So, you have ramps, and you drive your machinery up into here. You still got your 12 feet, for height, 8′ 6″ on the width…but Lowboy is in the RGN category, and it is for hauling equipment.
And it will haul, depending on the axles, just as much as an RGN. It’s just not used in the lingo as much anymore as Removable Gooseneck.
The old boys use it that haul equipment all the time, that have been doing it forever. They’ll use the term Lowboy and, um…it’s, it’s just an RGN, old school.”
