Hillsboro Industries recently introduced a new open car/multi-purpose heavy-duty trailer with standard 5,200-pound axles.

The new open-trailer model is available in 20-, 22- and 24-foot lengths.

“The HD, along with our (regular-duty) version, has many industry-leading features that customers want and will appreciate,” the company said.

Hillsboro designs and engineers trailers with unique standard features. This trailer boasts:

  • Tube cross members that give 20 times torsional stiffness vs traditional I-beam construction
  • Hillsboro’s exclusive rear stabilizer jacks in each rear corner  
  • All-aluminum construction with extruded floor and side rub/tie rail
  • Two 6-foot-by-12-inch HD aluminum ramps (rated at 2500 lbs each) with anti-rattle storage and doors
  • Flush sides with rub rail that allow side-loading capabilities
  • Stylish polished embossed front corner caps
  • 48-inch long front A-frame hitch with two 5/16-inch couplers

The HD model is available in 20-foot to 24-foot bed lengths that will feature a 9,990-lb Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, with two 5,200-lb torsion electric brake axles.

The HD and RD versions come with a 10-year structural warranty from a 51-year-old company.

“With 82½ inches between (them), the removable fenders give you a lot of flexibility in hauling and loading,” the company said. “The standard tie rail with flush sides and four swivel tie downs gives you a lot of choices in securing your load.”

The Hillsboro Exclusive Clear View Aero Guard option makes a load visible while driving, allowing for safe hauling of precious cargo using the rear-view mirror. Other options include a front bump stop rail, winch plate, and spare aluminum tire and wheel.

“Innovative features, styling and competitive pricing keep us at the front of the pack,” Hillsboro said.
