Premier All Aluminum Flatbed Trailer

The Premier AF-1080 all aluminum flatbed has a base weight of approximately 8,000 lb. on a typical 48 ft. unit and a 23" main beam depth. The trailer features one-piece aluminum flanges and sections without any splices and its load capacity rating is among the highest in the industry.

The Premier all aluminum drop deck is what an all aluminum drop deck should be – A full capacity product able to carry an evenly loaded capacity of 80,000 pounds and a concentrated load of 52,000 pounds in 4 feet of space.

Here are some of the recent refinements we have done to make the Roadbrutes even better than before:

  • New patented side rail and securement design
  • New aluminum floor
  • New aluminum crossbar design
  • Weight savings near 300 lb.
  • Drop deck is a "true" all aluminum trailer
  • Flatbed has a 1-piece main beam front to rear
  • Capacities up to 80,000 lb.

Check out the Premier Advantages and Popular Options to see why Wilson is your best choice for all aluminum flatbed and drop deck trailers.

Main Beams

Like the Roadbrute, the main beams of the Premier are manufactured with a crowned “mirror image of each other. This precision cut camber or “arch” removes the possibility of high or low beams on a Wilson trailer.

Automatic welding of the top and bottom flange to the web section produces an optimum weld penetration. The result is a unified one-piece flange and web design – No Splices and no potential for “section joint” cracking.

Side Rails

Wilson's new patented side rail and securement design is fully supported, top and bottom, with a new TJ style crossbar design that increases the strength of the rail and crossbar connections.

An integrated double "L" winch track allows winches to slide easier and enhances curb appeal of the trailer.

A "Quick Tie" plate receiving rail, located in the outside rail and below floor level, allows wider loads to be secured at multiple locations along the rail and is not susceptible to mud, ice and gunk build-up. The large cutouts in the outside rail easily fit 4" wide winch straps.

 

Wilson also offers two traditional style side rails (C and C+) integrated with the double "L" sliding winch track. (See Side Rail in the Popular Options below)

King Pin Area

Of course the king pin area is made of lightweight, rust-resistant aluminum and is bolted on for easy maintenance.

Aluminum Crossbars

The heavy-duty extruded aluminum crossbars are set on 18" centers and are the same crossbar successfully used in the Roadbrute line. The crossbar is even rugged enough to be used in coil hauling applications.

Aluminum crossbars run the full width of the trailer and are fastened to the main beam using aluminum clips. As an added feature Wilson attaches the clips by using stainless steel fasteners eliminating rusting and the associated issues.

Floor

The floor of the Premier is made of 1-3/8" thick aluminum flooring material with apitong nailer strips, both running the full length of the trailer without any splices. This makes the trailer very stable and successfully reduces side sway.

The floors are fastened to every aluminum crossbar using two 5/16" grade 8 screws. The use of double screws and full-length flooring material gives the Premier great floor capacity and floor life.

Aluminum Components

Landing gear supports and king pin area, the front end and rear end are all made from lightweight aluminum. After all, the Premier IS an all-aluminum trailer.

Wiring

The trailers are standard with a Grote wiring harness featuring the internally grounded Ultra-Blue sealed trailer-wiring system. This system uses stainless steel fasteners and carries a 10-year warranty.

Front End

Rear Ends

Suspensions

Wilson provides a variety of optional suspensions designed to make the most of gross weight limitations depending on your locale

Side Rail

In addition to the standard TJ side rail, Wilson offers a more traditional style (C-style) side rail incorporating the same integrated double "L" sliding winch track. The new C+ style rail includes the "Quick Tie" plate receiving rail into the top of the side rail, which allows securement at any point along the rail.
