Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co. is kicking off its Legacy Museum Trailer North American Tour this week in Salt Lake City, Utah. Utility Trailer Sales of Utah is exhibiting the special trailer at the Utah Trucking Assns.’s Management Conference and Trucking Expo, running through May 9. Additional locations in the tour schedule include events with Utility dealers in Idaho, North Dakota, Canada, Kansas, and also a stop at this year’s Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas.
Debuted at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, the Legacy Museum Trailer consists of four interactive touchscreen monitors and audio equipment for viewing movies, photos, and browsing through Utility’s historical timeline. An eight-seat movie theatre features a 25-minute documentary film chronicling the company’s history.
Additionally, other museum elements include World War II memorabilia displaying the original classified movie reel of Utility’s designed M23 Ammunition trailer being tested by the U.S. Army.
“We received great feedback from showcasing the museum trailer at MATS, so we wanted to share this truly unique museum experience with our network of dealers, vendors and customers across North America,” said Larry Roland, director of marketing.
