Premier Flatbed

Premier Drop Deck

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.


King Pin AreaOf course, the king pin area is made of lightweight, rust-resistant aluminum and is bolted in for easy maintenance.
Side RailsWilson’s patented side rail design is fully supported, top and bottom, with our full height TJ style crossbar, which is connected to the side rail in three areas. This design provides unitized strength to the side rails, floors and crossbars, plus increases the side rail’s securement capacities. Shown here is our popular C style side rail. We also offer optional TJ and C+ side rails. See their advantages in the Popular Options section of this website.
Cross StructureThree full depth internal aluminum cross structures are used for beam stabilization on both Roadbrute and Premier 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.
Aluminum CrossbarsThe heavy-duty extruded aluminum crossbars are set on 18” centers and are the same crossbar used in the Roadbrute line. The crossbar is even rugged enough to be used in coil hauling applications.
FloorThe 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 Roadbrute great floor capacity and floor life.
WiringThe trailers are standard with Grote wiring harnesses featuring the internally grounded Ultra-Blue sealed trailer wiring system. This system carries a 7-year warranty.
