Utility Trailer Manufacturing displayed a “convertible” platform trailer that offers the weather protection of a van. The trailer is a product of the partnership between Utility Trailer and Aero Industries Inc formed last year, under which Aero authorizes Utility to install the Conestoga 2000 tarping system at its manufacturing facilities and ultimately at Utility dealerships. Conestoga is patented in the United States and Canada and is a registered trademark of Aero.
The Conestoga tarping system slides the full length of the trailer, which makes it ideal for loading from both sides, from a loading dock, as well as top loading. The entire tarping system, including its locking devices, is operated from ground level. It is marketed under the name Conestoga By Utility and sold through Utility's North American dealer network.
