Fruehauf Trailers

Not since Jimmy & Tommy passed away

If I remember correctly the Fruehauf was a bit heavier on the scale empty ?
They were well built. New Penn acquired some NEMF trailers. We had trouble getting very high skids in their trailers compared to ours. The back plate above the roll up door came down a few inches lower than ours
Fruehauf had a plant for years in Fort Madison, Ia. When they had Yellow orders that was all they built for a week or so. We hauled all the decals and tires already mounted in there. Was always a busy place. Siemens bought the plant and made big windmill vanes there. Now it is empty.
