ATS 1.44: Ownable Drop Deck Trailers

Howdy, truckers! We have some interesting news for those who fancy hauling heavy loads in the American Truck Simulator. In addition to the hidden roads feature mentioned on our blog a couple of weeks ago, in the 1.44 update, you can look forward to a brand new ownable trailer type as well - the drop deck trailer!

What makes this trailer special is the fact that it has a lower center of gravity, and it combines the advantages of flatbed and lowboy, which results in a flat surface and a high weight-bearing capacity. It is perfect for hauling items and materials such as aircraft engines, backhoe loaders, forklifts, hay, lumber, metal coils, mooring buoys, pressure tanks, road rollers, and ventilation shafts. Also, because drop decks are low, we had to design new small tires, rims, nuts, and hubs, specifically for this trailer type.

In addition to having 3 customizable body types (wood floor, aluminum floor, sliding tarp) and 2 different chassis lengths (48ft or 53ft) with a choice of two, three, or four axles, here is a detailed list of everything you will be able to customize:

  • Front walls
  • Wind deflector
  • Warning flags
  • Aluminum boxes
  • Chrome boxes
  • Side markers
  • Rear banners (long load, oversize load, wide load)
  • Rear bumpers
  • Mudflaps

Let us know if you are looking forward to this sturdy, reliable, and practical trailer type coming with the 1.44 update for American Truck Simulator. Once you will head out on the road, make sure to take a screenshot with your new drop deck trailer and share it with us on social media by tagging our official accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).
