Is there anybody with a walking floor that is also using it to haul palletized loads or other loads normally hauled in vans? If so, where are you finding suitable Loads? Thanks for any input.

I do it a little. Mostly with my own loads though. I haul feed out, pallet loads back in.
If anyone has any loads let me know too.

Not all walking floor trailers for the most part are not typically designed to haul freight. Be careful the trailer is spec right you can damage the floor which is extemely expensive to repair.

THAT IS DEFINITELY A MUST. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE WALKING FLOOR IS BUILT HEAVY ENOUGH TO RUN A FORK LIFT ON, OR HAVE THE FLOOR BE ABLE TO WALK THE PALLETS FROM BACK TO FRONT. i USED TO PULL ONE OF THOSE, IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING TRAILER I HAVE EVER PULLED. iF THE FLOOR IS NOT FORKLIFT CAPABLE OR ABLE TO WALK BOTH FORWARD AND BACKWARD YOU WILL NEED A PALLET JACK OR TWO WHEEL CART TO LOAD. DEPENDING ON THE CONFIGURATION OF THE LOAD. YOU CAN ALWAYS LOAD THEM BY HAND TOO IF YOU WANT TO FINGERPRINT EACH BAG TO STACK ON A PALLET. THAT IS A BUNCH OF WORK.
