Last year, 75% of the trailers United Trailers manufactured were built with radial tires. Radial tires are widely considered superior to bias ply tires. Beginning in April 2015, all trailers we manufacture (with the exception of the XLE 4×6) will come standard with Radial Tires.
The Benefits of Radial Tires include:
- Runs cooler
- Longer Tread Life
- Wider Footprint
“This is a significant improvement to the quality and performance of our entry level product line. While a substantial majority of our trailers we manufactured came standard with radial tires, we will now be installing these premium tires on all of our trailers including the entry level product line.” states company president Todd Bontrager.
Beginning in February 2015, all trailers manufactured by United Trailers will come standard with exterior LED Lighting. “LED lighting is growing in popularity because of safety issues” states company president Todd Bontrager. Benefits of LED lighting on your United Trailers includes;
- LED lamps last longer because they withstand road vibration and shock much more effectively than bulbs.
- The life expectancy of an LED is 100,000 hours or six times that of an average incandescent bulb.
- Besides the longevity, LED lamps consume significantly less power than incandescent lights. The amp draw of an LED can be as low as 1/10th that of an incandescent light. The lower amp draw means more power for other critical electrical needs.
- A study by the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute found that LED lamps respond on an average 2/10th of a second faster than standard incandescent lamps. Using test results at 65 mph, LEDs improved reaction time and decreased braking distance by 16 feet.
In January 2015, United Trailers proudly released a new website. “In today’s economy, it is very important to have an accurate representation of your company and its’ product line easily accessible on the internet”, states United Trailers President Todd Bontrager. “We feel we have accomplished this goal with a website that is very descriptive, shows the many features available on our trailers and capable of adjusting to future growth.”
We hope you find this website to be a useful resource in the purchasing of a new trailer. Please do not hesitate to contact United Trailers should you have any questions.
