  • Midroof single bunks and double bunk high rise cabs

Trailers

Our trailers include: Reitnouer 53′ Aluminum Flatbeds, Reitnouer 53′ Aluminum Stepdecks, 53′ Benson Aluminum Stepdecks, and Fontaine 48’ Steel Combo RGNs. We take pride in our aluminum trailers, just like our drivers take pride in the freight they haul.

Aluminum 53' Reitnouer Flatbeds / Stepdecks

The aluminum trailers have very little maintenance so our drivers can stay out of the shop, and have sliding winches making it more convenient to strap down cargo.

53' Benson Aluminum Stepdecks

Our 53’ Benson aluminum stepdeck trailers are equipped with load levelers to convert trailers for flatbed freight. This means less down time swapping trailers for certain style of loads.

48' Fontaine Removable Goose Necks (RGNs)

The RGNs are mechanical and are some of the lightest in the industry, and can hold up to 45,000lb machines.


Hunt Transportation also utilizes the Bestpass transponder for ease in paying tolls in locations where Bestpass is accepted, and has 24/7 Road Service Support for any flatbed equipment maintenance needs.
