    Ya, but they have to be serviced every year or so many hours by an authorized service tech at around 1000.00 and then my understanding is they only last around 5 yrs. My carrier was 6900.00 for a 2007 engine, but that would only be good through 2013 :( and my box was ok but i want a newer box...

    And if that show trailer was 20k less I'd buy it :biggrin_255:

    I hear ya. If it were $20,000 less, Id have bought it site unseen, instead of posting the pic.

    At $57,000, I think they will sitting on that trailer for a long time.

    Anyone know what the price difference is for stainless vs alum? And also what's the up charge for a spread? (assuming all other options were the same)

    IMO the spread is worth it at any price but I didn't know if stainless was that much more. I know with a grain hopper stainless sides was a few thousand more.

    A couple years ago, upgrading to stainless sides on a reefer would run an extra $7,000.

    Wouldnt a 53 be better or at least a 53 spread if you have problems with the steer axle being over weight. and the 53 is lighter
