Roll Back Trailer

Just wondering if anyone had some pictures of the guts of a roll back trailer. I would like to build one but cannot find one to look at to see how the operation works. Have looked for plans but none seem to be out there. Thanks for any help.

I own a Sloan Kwikload Rollback trailer I bought used on Craigslist.

The concept is fairly simple but by the time you buy rollers and design the locking system, labror/time and materials are you sure you wouldn't be better off buying used - or saving for new...?

For what its worth.

I took pix of this heavy tilt trailer that was parked for sale a few years ago by my house.

it was very interesting to me because while I was crawling over it I realized it was balanced. the Hyd. were by passed {no pump @ time of pix}
I about fell over when I tried to catch myself & the bed moved ... effortlessly.

Any way here are the pix.

When I built mine I made it tilt rather than rollback..Much simpler

Roll Back Trailer

After the response to my post on the roll back trailer I wonder why we do any of this since most of the time it is cheaper to go out and buy instead of build. I am still looking for some pictures of the actual guts of one of the roll back trailers. I have more time than money and have access to various parts for trailers so it will be better to build than buy.

For Some its not the kill but the thrill of the chase.
The " I did it " factor is something that money can't buy.


I'm not cheap , just broke.

James i have read your question and looked at all the tanks that people sent you what do they think you have a ucklid or a tractor monster truck .I do not know why they even bother answering ,if they know not of what they speak . I have done quite a bit of research and have finally came up with my own ideas ,as i wished for a rollback and a tilt all at the same time, Man am i ever glad i didnt cut my 24 foot house trailer with 4 wheel electric brakes contact me off line at lave@distributel.net and well discuss this further you see i am in the process of pateneing this idea as i wanted a tilt and a rollback for my 59 vette thanks wayner

rollback trailers

Nest time your out and about take a closser look at a 52 foot trailer.Tractor trailer that is as in Transport truck take a look at the trailer ,almost all tractor trailers are rollback trailers. If a driver pulls in to a weight scale and he is told that he is over his legal limit on his traction tires he has two options one is to slide the fifth wheel therby altering which tires gets the extra weight his triler wheels or his steer wheels he can also alter his trailer wheels by sliding the rear boggies either forward or backward thus changing the weights position either to the wagon wheels of the traction wheels Think about this a moment and get to work its really simple not complicated at all and not as much work as doing a complete tilt either althou you will have to tilt the tongue but only about three feet lock and load got it wayner lave@distributel.net ps Ask a trucker he would be glad to show you how it works

Sloan trailer

I bought a used Sloan. I'm taking it all apart to paint with POR15. Let me know if you would still like pictures Of the undercarriage. I will be turning the trailer on it's side to paint the underside.

why do you want a roll back ? i built my race car trailer low and have 6 ft aluminum ramps. the roll back i owned in the 70's was a pia. the more it was used the looser it got. as for the pics people posted they were to reference the tilt. at least they posted pics .

I have one of these Kickload trailers.. works like a charm .. just be sure you dis-engage the trailer brakes after loading , or you will have some toasted trailer brakes,,

There is also A hitch out now that allows you to tilt a standard trailer at the hitch,

Roll Back Trailer Pictures

Yes I would like to see pictures of how the rollers work under the bed if you have them at some time in the future. I may end up building a tilt where the bed tilts with a hdy. cylinder.
