ArvinMeritor, Inc. has announced a new trailer suspension aimed at vocational trailer users in the U.S. and Canadian markets as well as general trailer use in Mexico.
Dubbed the RideStar RFS30T, it is based on the maker’s RSF suspension technology with added features designed for increased durability to handle heavier loads of up to 30,000 lbs. gross axle weight. It is planned for release in February 2005.
“The RFS30T was expressly engineered for our fleet and owner-operator customers in Mexico and those operating extreme-duty vocational trailers, such as dump vehicles, in the U.S. and Canada,” said Jim Sharkey, ArvinMeritor’s business unit director, Trailer Systems, North America.
