At this year’s CV Show, Montracon celebrates 40yrs in the trailer industry by taking its largest ever stand (Hall 3, 3A63).

One of three vehicles making a show debut is a twin lifting deck reefer that has been developed to accommodate more pallets than previous Montracon models. It carries 44 split 18 on the upper deck, 18 on the lower and 8 over the swan neck.  This trailer is also displayed fitted with the Axscend Trailermaster – in addition to a reversing safety aid, it provides continuous monitoring of the trailer’s performance with a view to optimising utilisation.

The reefer is joined by two other debut makers, a curtainsider rigid chassis and a more versatile machinery/plant carrier. The curtainsider body is displayed mounted on a 26tonne DAF chassis and is one of an order for 91 Montracon bodies, a mix of boxvans, curtainsiders and refrigerated supplied to Commercial Vehicle finance provider and leasing specialist Asset Alliance . Asset Alliance has also placed a follow up order for a further 24, a mix of curtainsiders and refrigerated. The CV Show rigid has a 9m body and is of all bolted galvanised steel construction and built to meet EN12642-XL load security standard.

Completing the stand is a 13.6m curtainsider trailer that adds a further splash of colour, being finished in the company’s 40th anniversary livery.
