Foam mandrel with foam-in-place insulation


Foam-in-place insulation provides a 360-degree 100% void free foam envelope that ensures that the entire trailer is fully insulated. With no joints to foam later, this process delivers optimum thermal efficiency.

.065" Versitex®-Utility VR2 lining


Utility’s high impact lining on the complete interior and on the exterior underskin below the floor reduces maintenance costs, and wards off damage from forklift impact.

Bendix® TABS-6 advanced with trailer roll stability program


Now a base spec on the 3000R, trailer roll stability technology dramatically improves trailer safety. It combines anti-lock braking (ABS) with a set of trailer sensors that monitor stability and automatically triggers braking intervention when conditions that may lead to trailer rollover are detected.

Utility Barrier Door® design


The bonded foam “sandwich” design reduces weight, optimizes thermal efficiency and seals better than any other design. Hardware is mounted without “thru-holes” into the foam cavity, reducing moisture entry points.

1⅜" heavy-duty extruded aluminum duct floor


The 16,000 lb front axle fork truck capacity floor with full-length hardwood floor fillers, I-beam floor cores and its rear “grid” system deliver optimum performance.

Hendrickson® ULTRAA-K 40K air ride suspension/slider system


The ULTRAA-K 40K includes a heavy-duty slider box and Quik-Draw® air-operated pin pull mechanism that improves trailer ride and lowers tare weight.

Stainless steel rear door frame


Maintenance-free stainless steel rear door frame resists corrosion and increases trailer durability and does not require painting. The shallow design door header also provides maximum rear door opening height for greater loading ease while minimizing load damage.
