Great Dane trailer driving in the desert. Everest

The Great Dane Everest reefer is designed for refrigerated carriers who value safety and efficiency. It is the highest performing, most thermally efficient trailer available, because it is built using the highest quality components and technology available for the greatest return on your investment.

Innovation That’s
Hidden in Plain Sight

Protect your payloads, profits and reputation with the latest liner technology. Our exclusive PunctureGuard and ThermoGuard liners with Microban antimicrobial technology provide unmatched strength, thermal efficiency and protection against bacterial growth, giving you a competitive advantage over invisible enemies.

The Consistency and Strength of Modular Design

When it comes to maintaining the temperature of your reefer, consistency is key. The Everest’s roof and sidewall panels are constructed using an advanced panel-foaming process that ensures consistency and void-free insulation. The panels are then connected using our innovative modular design, which creates a continuous blanket of insulation at all connection points.

The Elimination of
Wood and Worry

When we eliminated wood in our Everest reefers, we removed the risks of moisture absorption, rot and mildew that plague traditional wood construction. Everest reefers are constructed with thermally-efficient composite materials that do not gain water weight over time. And with a base weight of 12,000 pounds, the Everest can maintain an extremely competitive weight.

Microban broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection is standard on all Everest reefers. This patented technology does not wash off or wear away and fights bacteria growth, stains and odors for the entire life of the trailer. DOWNLOAD BROCHURE INNOVATION

Lightweight & Thermally Efficient

On the forefront of cold chain technology, Great Dane has been committed to refrigerated transportation since the 1940s. From pioneering the first reefer trailer to being the first OEM to build antimicrobial protection into its reefer liners, Great Dane sets the standard for temperature-sensitive deliveries.

Lightweight, Wood-Free Construction
With a base weight of 12,000 pounds and the use of composite sills and furring in place of wood in construction, the Everest is extremely weight competitive.

Panel Foaming Process
The industry’s most advanced modular panel foaming process produces a more thermally consistent and superior product.

Sidewall Lining
Standard PunctureGuard and optional ThermoGuard lining both provide extreme puncture resistance and Microban broad-spectrum antimicrobial protection.

Long Life Floor System
Everest reefers feature the strongest floor system in the industry. The standard TTMA-rated 18,000-pound aluminum heavy-duty duct floor is welded to seal out moisture.

Sidewall Protection
Scuffbands provide extra sidewall protection and are available in various heights and materials, including extruded aluminum, HDPE plastic and Great Dane’s fastener-free bonded PunctureGuard scuffband.
