For those who want to be noticed, Fruehauf offers its Performance Smooth-Sider range for branding and complex liveries.
Step frame, straight frame and sloper frame versions are all available with the sloper offering the biggest load capacity. A variety of rear door configurations and a full range of sheets are also available.
The Smooth Sider range benefits from the new Performance Chassis and 30mm standard plank sides. There is also a heavy duty step frame version with 50mm plank sides and a thicker section.
Thicker crossmembers over the kingpin create a flatter floor, a top rail shaped to avoid loading damage and an extended near sub-frame increasing strength, make the Performance Smooth Sider the only viable alternative to the Performance bathtub.
