The 4000AE delivers the strength and durability of an all-steel trailer and the low weight benefit of an all-aluminum trailer.
Designed with 3" aluminum crossbars, that include nine 4" full-width, tapered aluminum crossbars on 8" centerlines to provide optimized strength at the coil.
Our patented crossmembers system is featured on the 4000AE. A combination of 3" and 4" aluminum crossmembers replace steel to optimize weight without compromising strength or functionality.
Attached to the extruded aluminum floor, the 80,000 psi high strength steel hat-shaped top flange provides additional lateral stability to the trailer.
Three tube-shaped outriggers located on each side of the flatbed are connected to the aluminum crossmembers, providing stability and helping distribute the load to the main beams.
The main beams are shot blasted to bare metal prior to painting and then coated with a two-part primer and two-part urethane top coat on the exterior surfaces. A rust preventative coating is applied to the interior surfaces of the beams for lower maintenance cost.
Every trailer manufactured and sold by Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company is backed by a 5-year warranty policy.Download Warranty Certificate

Using the same patent-pending crossmember system as the 4000AE combo flatbed, the 4000AE Drop Deck consists of a combination of 3" and 4" aluminum crossmembers.
