Seems like these days even the trailer market is heating up with all kinds of new products. Karavan Trailers of Fox Lake, Wisconsin recently introduced a new line of trailers dubbed the "Raptor" line. The trailers come in a large array of sizes from smaller 12 foot tilt rigs to big 22 foot V-front drive-on/drive-off trailers.
These come with tons of standard features including 3750 pound torsion axles, Galvanized axle bodies, arms and hubs and Sure Lube hubs. You'll also get full length Tie Down channels and roller guided ramps for the V-Front trailers. These ramps have a roll-out assembly that allows for locking the ramp and eliminates ramp rattling. The Raptor trailers also have hybrid frame technology with an aluminum outer shell with galvanized base frame. The floor has a full base frame and floor material is optional.
One of the features that we really like that makes these stand out from other typical sled haulers is the ability to choose a new durable, easy to use HDPE plastic floor with integrated ski guides, track mats, and traction cleats. You can also choose up to a 3/4-inch plywood floor. All kinds of other accessories are available for these high quality trailers too including brake kits, aluminum rims, half turn tie down clamps and more. Caps will also be available for several models soon. The crew at AmSnow is planning to test one of these trailers come winter so keep an eye out for us at shows, events, and on the road and check out one of the newest sled trailers on the market!
