Compare 

The Viking Carrier offers so many more features and benefits than traditional wheel and axle running gear offers, that it is almost impossible to compare the two, because they are so vastly different.  Below, in the right column are nine of the most obvious problems with traditional running gear.  

The Viking Carrier was not only built to solve all of these problems, but to prevent flats and eliminate known issues that have been reported many times by toters.  Some of these issues include dangerously long braking distances, axle breakage during tighter turns and most of all, tire blowouts.  

There is also the fact that wheels and axles are made of recycled parts, with no way of measuring the milage placed on them.  Each Viking Carrier is serial numbered, and trip-logged in order to assure the highest performance and extraordinary road safety that you will soon begin to proudly call a new standard in transportation.

Wheels and Axles

  • Three 22,500lb. capacity axles. Towing is straight, stable and easy to turn.

 

  • Dual 16 ply steel-belted radial tires with 16/32 tread depth, 40,000mi. tread life.

  • Tires will not blow out under standard hauling conditions and do not fall off.

  • Self-airing system, maintaining 120 PSI, even if punctured. Stress-free for drivers.

  • Heavy load air-brake system. Stops quickly and safely.

  • Carries a registered weight of 65,000 to 68,000 lbs on three dual-wheeled axles.

  • High-end, heavy-duty suspension system, shear strength 650,000 lbs.

  • Homes arrive on time, or ahead of schedule and are in better condition.

  • Ride-height to top of 12.5” I beam is only 32”, giving it a minus 2” height advantage.

  • Multiple 6,000lb. capacity axles. Towing drifts and is unstable, axles break in turns.

  • Single 14 ply bias low-quality trailer tires with poor 6/32 tread depth, 400mi. tread life.

  • Tires constantly blow out (14-24) & may fall off under standard hauling conditions.

  • Tires need constant air-checks, and blow out even without being punctured.

  • Inadequate electrical-brake system. Stopping unsafe.

  • Carries additional weight, only by adding an excessive number of wheels and axles.

  • Low quality, costly, labor-intensive hanger suspension. Shear strength 20,000 lbs.

  • Homes seldom arrive on time, are damaged and incur cost overruns.

  • Traditional running gear ride-height is approx. 2” higher than the Viking Carrier.
