Fanciest trailer in company history built for Missouri owner-operators

| 9/18/2002

Reinke, manufacturer of over-the-road trailer/intermodal chassis equipment, delivered its fanciest drop deck trailer ever built to owner-operators Toney and Donna Bennett of Macks Creek, MO.

The drop-deck combination trailer, painted viper red to match the buyer's elaborate truck, features the company's unique Super Floor design, more than 130 LED lights, 10 toolboxes (five on each side), electric landing gear, power-lift kit, electronic scale, wheel balancers, dual tire pressure equalization system, air ride and much more.

The Bennetts hooked up the new trailer to their truck Sept. 9 at Superior Trailer Sales, the Sunnyvale, TX, dealership that sold the trailer.

The Bennetts have been working with Reinke and Superior Trailer Sales for the past three months to design their trailer, custom-made with features to ease their life on the road and to safely haul the most precious loads.

For the past eight years, the Bennetts have hauled multi-million dollar aircraft engines and parts for Southern Pride. Because they haul such expensive equipment and because they're on the road three months at a time, the trailer's appearance, design and durability must be superior.

The Bennetts' truck includes a bed, shower, bathroom, stove, oven, refrigerator, recliner, surround-sound television and more. Combined with the new trailer, their truck is worth more than $230,000.

Reinke chassis equipment and trailers are known for their lightweight, but strong and durable design with a variety of options. Trailer designs include all-aluminum, combo (aluminum with steel rails), drop-deck combo and other specialty trailers. The chassis options include the lightweight Millennium Tank Chassis and the 40-foot Container Chassis.
