Though you will reap all the benefits of a flatbed trailer, you will find all the modern conveniences with a Conestoga flatbed. When you compare to a dry van trailer, it's exciting to think you will have all the protection of a closed trailer, but none of the limitations when loading or unloading. You will no longer be confined by three walls and a roof.

Open sides allow complete access to the cargo, making odd-sized shipments more accessible. This amazing combo makes for one of the most sought after trailers on the road. The versatility of the Conestoga flatbed is undeniable when compared to the traditional flatbed, or even the dry van trailer.

The move-able tarp system makes the Conestoga a dream, giving you the diversity needed for just about any load.
