This is my first trailer mod for ATS, based on a vastly improved version of my original for 18WoS:PTTM. It is standalone, though it makes use of existing base game cargos where appropriate. It includes a selection of original cargo models by myself as well as some adapted from the base game flatbed trailer.

This mod adds a 1988 Utility 2000R 40' x 96" reefer trailer. It features an animated Thermo King Super II refrigeration unit, advanced coupling, and full use of the trailer paintjob system's current feature set.
When my wheel pack is installed with higher priority, custom wheels are applied to this trailer.
Information about older Canadian semitrailers is scarce on the internet, but if you look through enough 1980’s/90’s Canadian trucking photos, the distinctive SuperVan 90 wordmark is likely to catch your eye more than a few times. As far as I know, these would have been made in the Brampton, ON plant starting in the early 80’s.
This mod adds two variants of a classic Canadian dry van: one with a 2+1 midlift (non-steer) axle configuration and one with a tridem, both 48′ x 102″. Naturally, this mod fully supports advanced coupling and trailer paint jobs and, of course, it is fully stand-alone.
This is a thorough rework of Corby′s Tremcar food grade tanker with a drastically lower poly count, tweaked proportions, and some texture/material work that I′m fairly happy with. It uses the base game milk cargo, supports advanced coupling and has animated landing gear — all that good stuff.
The overall poly count is around 24,000 tri′s and the texture memory footprint is around 2.1MB. It should have similar performance to any of my previous trailers (if not slightly better due to fewer draw calls) — comparable to the Schwarzmüller DLC trailers in ETS2.
This is a fairly standard 4-bolster log trailer made by Sparta Manufacturing out of Tallulah, Louisiana.
Alutrec is a small, but accomplished manufacturer of aluminum semitrailers based out of Laurier-Station, Quebec. They've been operating since 1995 and were acquired by Manac in 2018. This mod focuses on their flatbed model, as an ownable trailer in various axle configurations commonly used in Quebec and Ontario.

The Peerless CTS-42 is a lightweight chip van with an impressive 65,000 lb payload capacity. It is manufactured by KNL Holdings LLC out of Paragould, Arkansas. This mod brings this interesting trailer to life in ATS for ownership, and for the freight market. It has animated landing gear, trailer cable support, and advanced coupling.
Here's a blast from the past: a late-70's Timpte Super Seal. This rather distinctive reefer was a well-regarded lightweight option at the time. There's not a huge amount of information out there about these, besides that the plant, design, and Super Seal trademark were sold to Great Dane in the 80's. What's truly important is that it prominently features a parka-clad seal as part of its branding – probably the boldest appearance of any reefer ever.
