How’s this for some full-tilt trailer handling?


Sometimes, it’s not about how you haul our trailers, but what can do on them that counts.

Case in point: this snazzy custom job we recently delivered for a hush-hush customer. Used to transport metal plates, the trailer features a lever-controlled upender that rotates the plates horizontally while a crane lowers the plates onto the padding. Mounting pads keep the plates three inches off the trailer deck and protect the metal finish.

What if you want to convert to a flat, general-use deck? Voila, a handy storage box underneath the frame houses lifting straps and winch handles used to remove the upender.

Because sometimes you just want to keep a low profile.
