ORLANDO, Fla. — East Manufacturing launched its new round-bottom trailer — Horizon — designed for agricultural use as well as aggregate, sand and gravel load.

The aluminum trailer manufacturer unveiled its product during the Technology & Maintenance Council 2022 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.

The Horizon is built with lighter-weight components with a new round-bottom design that gives the trailer a lower center of gravity.

The round-bottom trailer uses premium aluminum alloys for flooring and sidewall material for long life and durability. Its base weight is 9,860 pounds without options, a liner or tarp system. The Horizon trailer is 102 inches wide and available in lengths up to 40 feet. Sidewall heights include 52-, 56- or 60-inch for 43.4-, 46.8- and 51-cubic-yard capacity, respectively.
