Utility’s aerodynamic trailer tail

Utility Trailer’s Utility Aerodynamic Tail weighs 25 pounds and is available as a factory-installed standard specification on the company’s dry vans and refrigerated trailers with rear swing doors to help reduce fuel use and aerodynamic drag. The UAT is made of a UV-protected thermoplastic composite and is comprised of two full-height side fairings and one full-width roof fairing. The side fairings are connected to the rear swing doors, and the tail is engineered to deploy automatically when the doors are closed and fold back when they are open. The roof fairing is designed to not interfere with lock rods or rear lighting.
