    So I keep seeing lots of can loads coming out of Ball corporation at Goodyear AZ.

    Under trailer requirements it says 101.5" inside width and door opening flush with the walls.

    Exactly which model of trailer is this?

    I run a utility 4000dx with a 101" inside width and the frame around the door opening has a half inch lip.

    Is there a special trailer for these can loads?

    Thank you

    Pretty sure my Great Dane dry box is wider. I think I remember that being a selling point when I bought it. It's a 2015, nothing special, dry van. Only once or twice have I had a load where they asked.

    Is the door frame flush with the walls?

    Na, my door frame is set in, walls are wider. I need to find out about this anyway. A guy who might want to do some shipping with me has this very same question because of odd sized skids. I'll try and figure it out and report back.
     
    Edjahman Thanks this.

    It almost sounds like they want a conestoga for those loads.

    I did those loads at WE with whatever crap trailer I had at the moment. They never questioned me and loaded me. In my experience that place is a clock killer. Always took forever to get loaded.
