One of the more odd trailer setups, the Low Loader!

Michigan Lo-Loader Trailers

F.A. Long Company

Benton Harbor, Michigan

The Michigan Lo-Loader has a hydraulically controlled drop-bed feature that allowed the trailer frame to settle down closer to the water. The only other trailer with this feature that we know of is the Bassick Beaver boat trailer made in Bridgeport, Connecticut. In 1958, Frank Long was the president of the company (see 1958 article below). If you have further information, please contact us so that we may update this page.
