Based in Northwest Alabama, Econoline Trailers Inc. is known for producing some of the most well-built trailers in the equipment trailer industry. Over the last 40 years their designs, based on strength and durability, have proven to withstand some of the industries toughest customers and conditions. Econoline prides themselves in providing their customers a product that will serve all their trailer needs. Over the years, Econoline has produced a wide variety of trailer models ranging from 5-ton up to 30-ton. These trailers come in many different variations which include: dov etail, tilt, landscape, goose- neck and drop deck trailers. In years past, they have brought you the MultiMax® suspension and Hydra-Eze® ramp and continue to produce them to this day. They also produce favorites like the tandem and dual tandem models, with a multitude of options. Econoline has now entered into another side of the equipment trailer industry by adding its first dump trailer to their already extensive line of trailers. Built with the same quality material as all the equipment trailers, the dump trailer is built to last. This trailer has all of the features you would expect from a top-of-the-line dump trailer. It has a 14,000 pound G.V.W.R., a heavy duty mainframe, a heavy duty scissor hoist with a 5” double acting cylinder, 2”x4” tubing cross members, diamond plate fenders, tarp tie downs, a 12,000 pound jack, electric brakes, a lockable battery box, 6’ stow away/removable ramps, a plug in battery maintainer, a deep cycle battery, a tarp and a three way gate system. Like all Econoline trailers, it comes standard with radial tires, a wiring harness, a breakaway switch and LED lights. At the NATDA show last year, Econoline introduced another new product. The “Trailer Matcher”, designed by one of their very own was created to hopefully make finding trailers a whole lot easier. Econoline wanted to do something that would not only help dealers but help customers make better decisions in what type of trailer they needed to haul their equipment. Therefore, they introduced the Trailer Matcher to the website. The Trailer Matcher allows you to enter the type of equipment you want to haul by make and model number or by weight of the equipment and it matches it with the best options of Econoline trailers to meet your needs. The database contains over 9,000 pieces of equipment and is a great place to start if you are not sure what type of trailer you need to move your equipment. Of course, one of Econoline’s National Dealer Representatives is always available to help you with your trailer needs as well. Econoline promotes its products through a national advertising campaign, as well as offering co-op advertising to qualified dealers. They also provide them with promotional fliers, brochures, banners and product specification materials. Econoline recognizes that their success is based on cont’d on page 30 NATDA Magazine 29
