Stages & Canopies
A drop down stage is where the side of the trailer is hinged at the bottom and folds open to create an extension of the trailer floor. Stages help to create excitement if you want to engage with customers as they are walking by your specialty trailer at a busy event, for example. They can be used to create a concert-like atmosphere or display large products, kiosks, signage and more.
A double stage is where both sides open up, providing a line of sight through the trailer from side to side. Stages require support poles for the edge of the stage furthest from the trailer when deployed.
Canopies are hinged at the top, so when the side of the trailer opens, it forms a roof. Typical canopies are free standing and are held up with hydraulics and a brace.
