What makes a Reitnouer the right trailer for you? If you’ve been in the market for an aluminum flatbed trailer, you’ve certainly heard of Reitnouer. But, what makes Reitnouer the industry leading manufacturer of aluminum trailers?
What makes a Reitnouer special?
In 1982, Bud Reitnouer, founder of Reitnouer, Inc., was convinced that a better aluminum trailer could be manufactured without welding. Bud realized that since aluminum is a heat treated metal, basic metallurgy tells us that welding (re-heating a heat treated metal) structurally weakens the material at the point of attachment. So, Reitnouer aluminum trailers are bolted. With the exception of the rub rail, there’s not a welded aluminum joint anywhere on a Reitnouer. Research and experience shows that when a heat treated aluminum alloy is welded, the intense heat required to weld the joint significantly reduces the aluminum’s tensile strength. As a result, bolting makes Reitnouer flatbed trailers stronger and more durable.
When Reitnouer first introduced its totally bolted aluminum flatbed trailer, it revolutionized the industry. Its innovative two-piece main beam construction and a whole host of breakthrough features, including a tapered beam design to optimize strength and weight and safety tread deck, Reitnouer is the standard against which all other flatbeds are measured. Reitnouer flatbeds have a unique Safety-Tread Deck so that pallets bite in and drivers don’t slip while walking on the deck. Heavy-duty corners and a three-piece bolted rear bumper design that exceeds DOT standards are just two more ways that Reitnouer is ensuring quality.
Over the decades, hauling power and a reputation for improved reliability and reduced maintenance spread, Reitnouer continued to grow the market share of these elite trailers. And as loads grew bigger and bigger, Reitnouer introduced the Big Bubba in 1992- a 100,000 lb. GVW trailer, with at that time, had an unheard of ability to load 60,000 lbs. in a four foot section. As the years rolled on, Reitnouer continued to develop additional models to meet the demands of the transportation and trucking industry, including the MaxMiser, MaxLite and the Bigger Bubba, which are still members of this elite line-up.
For more than 30 years, Reitnouer has a proven reputation of reliability and serviceability, offering the public the absolute top of the line in aluminum flatbed trailers and the best dealer body in the industry.
