Add to that Reitnouer's rail overlap reinforcement at the neck area.
This innovative design provides more meat where it's needed most-at the
fifth wheel. The landing gear is tied to four cross members for greater
load distribution and stability, and the suspension features a "box-type"
support mounting for maximum strength. Long "J" shaped mounting brackets
distribute load forces over a much larger area than conventional designs, and
suspensions and fifth wheel plates are powder coated for optimal corrosion protection.
Reitnouer flatbeds have a unique Safety-Tread Deck so that pallets bite in and
drivers don't slip while walking on the deck. And since a trailer's corners take such a pounding,
we use solid extruded corners that are extremely heavy-duty. The rear bumper design exceeds
DOT standards. Its three-piece design is bolted, allowing easy repair or replacement - an
extremely important feature since owners are now required to maintain these bumpers in the
original condition and design to ensure long-term DOT strength requirements.
