Our deck on the neck option (available on all goosenecks) transforms an area that is typically wasted into highly usable deck space.
We recently have redesigned our "deck on the neck" option to include mitered corners for maximum cab clearance when turning.
This option is quite popular for hauling attachments, tools, bales, and palleted cargo.
It is also used on some hot-shot trailers since it allows the driver to carry additional cargo.

Do you use your trailer after the sun goes down? If so, you need our new Bolt-on Gooseneck Light Bar.
Driven by our customers request for factory installed work lights, we developed the trailer industry's first bolt-on light bar.
The bar quickly bolt-ons to the rear riser cross-member of your gooseneck trailer and ties into your factory junction box.
This light bar gives you plenty of light to keep you working all night.
Check out our new Monster Ramps option available on our FS, FD, and LD Gooseneck models.
If you have got a wide variety of equipment you want to load (skid-steers, fork lifts, tricycle tractors, etc...) these are the ramps for you!
Each ramp measures 44" wide by 60" long with full diamond plate ramp bottoms.
Also, don't worry about these "Monsters" being too heavy, they are spring loaded for lifting from both the deck and from the ground.
We want to encourage you to take minute and check out our new Dump Trailer Comparison page.
We have highlighted over 40 features of PJ dump trailers and how they stack up to the competition.
This guide illustrates the dozens of premium features that so many other manufacturers either don't have or only offer as high priced options.
It is with great sadness that we notify you that Ted Friesen passed away this morning after a battle with leukemia. Diagnosed in August 2011, Ted and his family battled the leukemia with grace and courage.
Ted joined PJ Trailers in 1999. Over the next 13 years, in dispatch and in sales, Ted became an invaluable member of the PJ Trailer team. His ability to configure stacks of trailers was legendary within PJ Trailers and will be missed. As anyone who spent time with Ted will confirm, Ted was a deeply caring and sincere man, never putting business before the personal needs of his dealers or his coworkers. He had the ability to connect with everyone on a level that surpassed that of just a business relationship. It was a blessing for the entire PJ Trailer team to have Ted spend some time in the office in the last several weeks.
Ted has two daughters who currently work for PJ Trailers. Michelle works in our dispatch office and Kaylene is our receptionist. He also has a son-in-law, Jamie (Michelle’s husband) who works in our plant. Ted and his family will always be a huge part of the PJ Trailer family. Please join us in praying for Ted’s family and friends.
One of the hottest options for our utility trailers is the Side Mount ATV Ramp option.
Essentially the frame rails in front of the fenders are ramps that can be removed to offer side loading.
This option gives you the ability to load an ATV/UTV in the front and one from the rear between the fenders.
We recommend either the U7 or U8 utility trailers depending on the length of your ATV.
The ramps can also be used for golf carts, UTVs, dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, side-by-sides, lawn mowers, etc...
This option is available on our 60", 77", and 83" utility trailers with lengths of 12 and 14 ft.
Check out our Video Demo of us loading our Case IH Maxxum 130 tractor on a PJ 32 ft Low Profile Hydraulic Dovetail.
Over the years others have tried to copy our design, but they keep coming up short.
We build three hydraulic dovetail models, check them out on our gooseneck trailer page.
