Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co., the industry’s largest manufacturer of refrigerated trailers and a leading manufacturer of dry freight vans, flatbeds and curtainside trailers, has launched its 2014 Legacy Museum Trailer Tour in North America.

Introduced at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky, Utility’s Legacy Museum Trailer consists of four interactive touchscreen monitors and audio equipment for viewing movies, photos and browsing through Utility’s historical timeline.

An eight-seat movie theatre features a 25-minute documentary film chronicling the company’s history. Additionally, other museum elements include World War II memorabilia displaying the original classified movie reel of Utility’s designed M23 ammunition trailer being tested by the U.S. Army.

The museum tour begins in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Utility Trailer Sales of Utah exhibiting at the Utah Trucking Association’s Management Conference and Trucking Expo through Friday. Other locations include events with Utility dealers in Idaho, North Dakota, Canada, Kansas, and also a stop at this year’s Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas.

“We received great feedback from showcasing the museum trailer at MATS, so we wanted to share this truly unique museum experience with our network of dealers, vendors and customers across North America,” said Larry Roland, director of marketing.
