Rawhide Large Trailers are typically 8 tube to assure not exceeding highway weight limits. Higher capacity trailers are available on requests. If it is not in the fleet we can custom build to meet your needs. When used with CNG we find there is a need for compression and regulation equipment. Rawhide can handle your requirements including turnkey gas management.
