Sometimes referred to as a step deck, this trailer is a composite (or Combination – Combo) structure of high-strength steel and aluminum. The full-width, hollow-core, aluminum flooring is also a structural member. This optimization is the key to the trailer’s low tare weight. The optimization also translates into one of the stiffest flat decks on the market. Even with concentrated loads, the structure does not lose much of its camber.
The smooth underside of the flooring reduces the amount of snow and mud that can accumulate. High point loads on the outer rails are met with ease as the aluminum flooring is 3x stronger than the traditional steel deck construction.
The rear deck height over the wheels is the lowest possible height without having the fenders protrude from the deck. The bottom deck section slopes progressively downwards where it meets the gooseneck to give an impressive loading height of 29 inches in that area.
