A new advanced aerodynamic side skirt, the USS-120A, is now available from Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. The skirt is U.S. EPA SmartWay certified, and its usage can lead to at least 5 percent fuel savings. Galvanized high tensile steel braces allow the skirt to move both inward and outward. The product is available factory-installed on new Utility trailers or as a retrofit for existing trailers.
