99″ Dry Van Trailer


The 99″ dry van is 99″ from lining to lining and is our lightest model. The 99″ model features a 1.3″ deep 18 gauge steel hat-shaped posts on 24″ centers and a .25″ plywood lining installed horizontally over the posts.

Tried and true, the 99″ dry van is our oldest model and has been around for over 30 years. With posts on 12″ centers, the 99″ dry van is an excellent choice for bulk cargo such as carpets. The 99″ dry van also performs well in service with paper rolls with posts on either 12″ or 16″ centers.

The .25″ plywood lining can also be replaced with fiberglass for customers who don’t want plywood. Fiberglass is generally lighter than plywood, but it is also generally more expensive.
