Drop Beam Axles and Overlay Axles

Drop axles and overlay axles lower horse floats, boats and car trailers.

A drop axle or overlay axle will lower a caravan by 40mm to 100mm depending on the beam steel used. We do not recommend a lower drop axle than 100mm.

The video below compares a standard axle with a drop axle trailer installation.

Couplemate uses 32mm drop plates. Drop plates can be purchased here.

Lowering the centre of gravity makes for safer braking, safer cornering allowing to reach your destination more refreshed.

Horses, cars and boats on trailers lift the centre of gravity and adding risk to towing.

Box trailers carrying sand and gravel all have a high centre of gravity. As a result, slower cornering and braking lengthens a journey.

Overlay axles on trailers over 750kg perform the above tasks perform better.
