Utility Trailer Sets the Dry Van Standard at 2007 MATS with the 4000D-X® Thin-Wall Dry Van

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., March 2, 2007- Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company, a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, reefers, flatbeds, and Tautliner® curtainsided trailers, sets the benchmark for standard features with its 4000D-X® thin-wall dry van to be showcased at this year’s Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) March 22-24 in Louisville, Kentucky.

Engineered for strength and productivity, the 4000D-X® patented thin-wall design was engineered to compete squarely in the thin-wall segment by combining an aluminum exterior skin with 80K steel interior panels separated by a core material. The 4000D-X® comes packed with a thorough array of no-cost, standard features that exceed industry standards. Standard features include Snag Free™ recessed squeezed rivets, stainless steel rear door frame, heavy duty king pin assembly, Hendrickson Quik-Draw® pneumatic slider pin-pull system, Stemco® Platinum Performance System™ wheel end, integrated rear threshold assembly, fully sealed floor and wall assemblies, patented 80k flush steel side posts, white steel lining panels, LED lighting and much more.

“The 4000D-X® raises the standard with an extensive array of standard features offered in dry vans that make our thin-wall dry van built to deliver,” said Craig Bennett, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Utility Trailer. “We have a well-established reputation of providing a high number of standard features that improve productivity and reduce maintenance costs and the 4000D-X® reflects our ongoing dedication to providing a solidly engineered product to compete with other forms of thin-wall trailers, such as the plate trailer.”
