East all-aluminum drop deck trailer

Trailers | March 12, 2012

Designed for increased payload versatility and better stability, East Manufacturing has created an all-aluminum drop deck trailer with a low-slung 36-in. deck height. The 36-in. drop deck height gives the trailer a lower center of gravity. This provides the trailer with improved stability.

Because the drop deck is all-aluminum, it provides the ideal balance of strength and weight to allow even greater payload optimization, the company says. It is available in multi-axel configurations, in lengths up to 53 feet.
