Benefits of Owning Utility Trailers
Utility Trailer is a brand that is synonymous with quality, durability, and innovation. The company has been an industry leader in manufacturing refrigerated trailers, dry freight vans, flatbeds, and Tautliner curtain-sided trailers for nearly a century.
One of the standout features of Utility trailers is their innovative foam-in-place insulation technology which provides industry-leading thermal efficiency in refrigerated trailers. Additionally, Utility’s 4000D-X Composite dry vans utilize a unique combination of composite materials and high-tensile steel to balance strength and weight savings perfectly.
With Utility trailers, you can also benefit from reduced fuel consumption due to aerodynamic designs and a high resale value due to their exceptional build quality.
Common Signs of Issues with Utility Trailers
Despite the remarkable quality of Utility trailers, they may require maintenance and repairs like all mechanical equipment. Here are some common signs that indicate your trailer needs attention:
- Temperature Fluctuations: If you own a refrigerated trailer and notice temperature inconsistencies, it could be a sign of insulation issues or refrigeration unit malfunctions.
- Structural Damage: Dents, cracks, or any structural damage in the walls, floor, or roof may compromise the integrity and performance of the trailer.
- Wheel and Suspension Problems: Unusual vibrations or noise from the wheels or suspension may indicate worn-out bearings or components.
- Brake Issues: If you experience delayed response or hear squeaking noises while applying brakes, it’s crucial to inspect the brake system.
- Lighting and Electrical Issues: Flickering lights, or malfunctioning electrical systems, could be indicative of wiring problems or issues with connectors and fuses.
