Great Dane’s Champion dry van trailer product line offers the most diverse spec set available in today’s market. A visit to our competition and despite explaining your operational requirements they will likely offer you same model trailer they offered the previous inquirer because that’s all they have to offer, one product and fingers cross hopefully that one product will work for you. Van trailers can get lumped into one category of “boxes on wheels” by those less discerning. Great Dane however acknowledges that the same van trailer construction does not work for every LTL, truck load, automotive and line haul, heated operation. Great Dane has 3 main Champion dry van models to choose from of which some have further wall liner option configurations giving you great choice in finding the van trailer that’s best for your operation.
