    We ordered a Dorsey 53’ flatbed last week and while talking to our former employer realized that we didn’t add any inflation options to the trailer tires. he said all their trailers (hundreds) have an inflation system and to call our rep to have it added it asap.

    I called my trailer dealer and was the following

    Tiremaax $1568 - auto inflates low trailertires to proper PSI
    Tiremaax pro $1792 - Auto inflates and deflates trailer tires to proper PSI

    I added the pro system, at this point what difference does another $224 make? :confused:

    Sounds like an AA&E trailer.

    Will you be able to fit a container in a conestoga flat? I know we can just barely fit them on step deck conestogas, the curve at the top of the flatbed tarp kit hits the container. Or so I’ve heard.
