Great Dane will showcase its entire series of Freedom flatbed trailers and an Everest reefer optimized for truckload operations at the 2013 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas, from August 22-24.

Attendees visiting the company’s booth (#16136) will have a chance to speak with Great Dane product experts and see many of the company’s lineup of trailers in person.

Great Dane is highlighting many of the standard and optional features in its flatbed trailer line that make them adaptable to just about any job. Featured in the booth will be

six flatbed trailers, including two all-aluminum Freedom XP models, three all-steel Freedom SEs (including a drop-deck and a 53’ tri-axle model with a rolling tailpipe optimized for oil field use), and a Freedom LT hybrid aluminum/steel flatbed trailer outfitted with Great Dane’s new optional Appearance Package for enhanced visual impact.

Other optional features showcased in this year’s flatbed show models include thicker main beams and extra crossmembers for added strength and durability, bulkheads, a dunnage rack, storage tool boxes and a variety of load securement enhancements. Also featured are a Hendrickson TIREMAXX Pro tire inflation system and a Hendrickson under-beam lift kit with Wabco load-sensing lift control that raises one of the trailer’s axles when not needed to improve maneuverability and reduce tire wear.

Additionally, the booth will also feature one of the company's Everest TL reefers, equipped with Great Dane's patented ThermoGuard lining to significantly reduce

insulation degradation, cooling unit fuel consumption and water vapor intrusion through the liner over the life of the trailer. The Everest TL show trailer is also equipped with a Laydon Composites aerodynamic skirt, a HendricksonTIREMAXX Pro tire inflation system, Bridgestone Ecopia tires, and CorroGuard, Great Dane’s exclusive corrosion-resistant undercoating.
