Beyond delivering superior thermal performance, our Everest reefers feature the strongest floor system in the industry. Building on this strength, we’ll look at how matching the right floor types and scuffbands will enhance your trailer’s performance. Plus, we’ve added antimicrobial protection to our roof and wall liners to give you an edge on clean.
Trailer brakes are a vital safety feature but choosing the braking system that’s best for your operation can be a tough choice. Understanding the need for proper balance between tractor and trailer systems can help make the decision easier. We’ll also discuss how air disc brakes compare to drum brakes, and the improved safety and efficiency that air disc brakes can provide.
Our Sahara truck body is loaded with numerous design options, including translucent roof sheets, lighting options, floor options and more. Read about how the Big Ten Network customized a Sahara truck body to be the official equipment truck for its “BTN Tailgate” program, which aired live from college campuses this past fall.
