Kentucky Trailer tours country with prototype moving van

Kentucky Trailer, the country's longest-established custom trailer manufacturer, launched a national tour on Monday with its Concept Trailer. Tagged "Tomorrow's Concepts in Moving...Today", the trailer includes current, limited edition and prototype options.

Spearheading the first of its kind mobile tour to showcase its innovations in the trailer manufacturing industry, Kentucky Trailer designed the Concept Trailer to represent a top-of-the-line model.

"We look at this tour as an investment," said Larry Hartog, President of Kentucky Trailer. "It's an investment in our product, making all the great ideas a reality. But even more, it's an investment in our customers. They can see these great options in-person and in-use in our Concept Trailer."

Many of the Concept Trailer features are the direct result of customer feedback. In crafting unique units for clients over the decades, Kentucky Trailer staff has heard innumerable suggestions for new features. Now finally, the options are a reality in this prototype moving van.

Creating a tour schedule for the Concept Trailer allows Kentucky Trailer to take its innovations to the country's leading moving companies and to collect feedback on the conceptual limited edition options. Kentucky Trailer will visit moving companies such as UniGroup Inc. (United Van Lines LLC, Mayflower Transit LLC), Atlas World Group, Inc. (Atlas Van Lines), Sirva (Allied Van Lines, Inc., Global Van Lines, Inc., north American Van Lines), and American Red Ball World Wide.

A feature unveiled in this Concept Trailer, the sliding loading platform, epitomizes Kentucky Trailer's engineering excellence. The platform's construction of bright-anodized aluminum and stainless steel telescoping tubes is the perfect balance of superior corrosion resistance, strength, long-term durability and sleek good looks.

Safety earned great consideration in the Concept Trailer features, as well. Design and location of the rear door LED light fixtures increase the safety for operators and fellow motorists alike. Also, Kentucky Trailer developed a rugged, integrated electrical contact system that eliminates any exposed wires between the rear frame and the rear door LED lights, reducing future service and safety issues.

The national tour starts Monday at the United and Mayflower show in Arizona. Future stops and dates for the Kentucky Trailer Concept Trailer will be added and announced regularly.
