Lightweight, long-lasting aluminum and Wilson's tested-tough construction results in a trailer able to endure varying extremes and road stresses, while achieving some of the industry's best load capacities.
Corrosion resistant aluminum means less valuable time is used dealing with the rusting issues of steel. You will appreciate the lower costs of ownership a Wilson trailer can deliver.
The aerodynamic pluses of Wilson's smooth, closed end trailer design maximize fuel efficiency and payload while minimizing your cost per load. The fuel savings realized over the longer lifespan of the trailer adds to your bottom line and your value in the trailer.
Wilson's open-design king pin area transfers weight to the side rails. With its strong, flexible and clean designs, cross bracing that would otherwise collect debris, add weight and lead to corrosion becomes unnecessary. Unobstructed access to the nose area allows for much easier cleaning and maintenance, plus there is more clearance for truck frames when maneuvering over raised areas.
Wilson uses a Corsol™ coating throughout the king pin assembly. Components treated with Corsol™ become highly chip resistant and galvanically non-conductive so dissimilar metals can be fastened together. This coating permeates the steel to help resist corrosion from the inside out rather than the outside in. For additional protection between dissimilar metals, Wilson adds a polymer material barrier around the perimeter of the king pin component.
Notice the continuation of the standard full length inside skin on the sidewalls. Wilson provides a much cleaner way to haul!

The smooth one-piece side skin, with corrugations running the full length of the trailer, makes the trailer more streamline – Reducing the drag yields more miles per gallon. The one-piece skin also provides greater strength and flexibility in and out of the field.
Splice sides are available as a popular option.
Larger diameter rivets with larger heads generates greater, more desirable shear strength. Combine this with the uniqueness of Wilson's one-piece inside and outside wall skins and a state-of-the-art maximum side strength is created.
Wilson's deeper rear channel adds strength to the design of the trailer.
Long lasting LED lights are standard for all applications of the tail, turn, and clearance lights on the trailer.
The front and rear trailer ends are both sloped to allow easier access to the trailer interior. There is also more elbowroom for roll tarp opening and closing.
Full length inside skins on the sidewalls eliminates an area for material build-up in the tandem and kingpin areas that would otherwise add unnecessary weight.
Bracing the landing gear to the "C" channel and not to the slope sheet adds obvious strength. Also, bracing from the rear reduces obstacles for truck mud flap brackets to catch on and allows for a greater swing clearance. A better weight balance is also achieved for those with long wheel base tractors.
Side vent ports, positioned between each set of side posts, allow the sides to breathe, extend the life of the side wall, and also serve as a useful inspection source.
Wilson's two-piece hopper is standard with 2 stiffeners per side plus corner bracing for a stronger hopper less prone to bulge and sag which causes rivets to loosen and pop. The stiffeners also serve as handy knock rails for sticky product.
2-speed Rack & Pinion Opener – Available with steel or aluminum doors.
The heavy-duty dump valve box with a tread plate door is sealed to protect gauges and illuminated for night use.
Wilson provides walk rails, grab handles, and full-height access ladders.
Designed with low maintenance in mind, Wilson uses a dependable sealed wiring system backed with the best warranty in the industry. No excess or exposed wiring. It is sealed and protected.
Wilson's larger tandem tubes, identical in size, provide more strength in the suspension area. The tubes are undercoated inside and vented to inhibit corrosion. All metal trailer components are coated with Corsol™ anti-corrosive metal treatment and can be top coated with a liquid paint. For additional protection between dissimilar metals, Wilson adds a polymer material barrier to the connection areas of the assembly.

Wilson provides a variety of optional suspensions designed to make the most of gross weight limitations depending on your locale. Choose from the standard tandem axle or optional spread axle and multi-axle configurations. Steel sub frames are standard but corrosion-resistant aluminum sub frames are a very popular lightweight alternative that, depending on suspension specification saves approximately 300 lb. Air ride is always a sought-after option that improves ride and handling.
In addition to the one-piece sidewall, Wilson offers vertical splice sidewalls on 49" centers for the Pacesetter and Commander models. Talk to your Wilson sales representative to specify on your order.
With a standard hopper clearance of 17", Wilson also offers optional Ag Hoppers with a "true" high ground clearance of 21". Check out the many available hopper options below.
