Still spry at 90, Utility puts its show on the road

Celebrating its 90th year as a trailer manufacturer, Utility Trailer Mfg Co announces the launch of its 90th Anniversary Show Trailer Road Tour.

City of Industry CA-based Utility’s 3000R refrigerated trailer and its new 4000D-X dry van display full-length, customized graphics to draw attention to the firm’s heritage as the oldest trailer manufacturer in the United States.

Show trailer graphics portray cultural events of 1914, the same year that Utility began building trailers. The sidewalls of the trailers depict Henry Ford’s assembly line on one side and a lifelike portrayal of Babe Ruth on the other.

These trailers will embark on a national road tour through the end of 2004 to visit Utility dealers as well as truck shows. The road tour will include stops at the Utah Trucking Association in Salt Lake City (May 5–8), and the Las Vegas Truck Show (June 10–12).
