Setting the standard for long life and low maintenance, East drop deck trailers are one of the lightest and strongest on the market, available in overall lengths up to 53 feet. To keep weight down, East drop deck trailers feature the industry’s only true all-aluminum, one-piece neck – no bolts or steel reinforcement needed. With today’s special load requirements, East offers one of the highest concentrated load ratings and more payload potential than the competition.
BEAST™ (BST DROP)
Offering a structural load rating of 80,000 pounds distributed, it can carry up to 2,500 pounds more payload than a comparable steel drop deck, and up to 1,200 pounds more than a comparable composite.
BEAST™ II (BST II DROP)
Designed with all the features and benefits of the BST, the BST II DROP meets the needs of applications requiring higher load ratings without additional weight. It is rated up to 100,000 pounds distributed with a tandem axle. And, it boasts a 2-inch deeper main beam than the BST DROP.
EXTREME-LOW DECK (XLD)
Designed for increased payload versatility and better stability, the first all-aluminum drop deck trailer with a low-slung 36-inch deck height offers a lower center of gravity. With specialty loads, particularly equipment loads getting taller and taller, the new low-height East drop deck reduces the need for partial dismantling of the load to get it below the 13-feet 6-inch maximum legal height. Available in Beast and Beast II.
STRONGER FLOOR DECKING
Fully-enclosed floor design with full length continuous welds joining floor decking to main-frame beams, provides maximum strength and wind resistance with multi-hollow floor extrusions. Skid resistant, serrated-edge top surface.
REAR PANEL FULLY SEALED
Fully-sealed rear panel is water resistant. Recessed grooves protect conspicuity tape and rubber dock blocks and a heavy-wall bumper provides added protection.
Hollow-core side-rail design, Securelight™, provides a conduit for wiring to be fully enclosed. Standard with LED PC-rated surface-mounted lights.
EXCLUSIVE SECURETIGHT™ CARGO CONTROLS
Side-rail extrusions are designed for adjustable chain tie-downs and a unique winch strap capture system. Interchangeable on either side of the trailer, torque can be applied on both sides to help stabilize loads.
EAST ELITE™ WHEEL-END WARRANTY
Standard wheel-end parts are warranted for 5 years or unlimited mileage. The assembly is filled with synthetic oil, which resists high-temperature breakdown.
Integrated stairway provides a simpler, easier and safer entrance to and exit from the flatbed deck. A locking door enclosure allows for additional lights and license plate mounting while providing rear a more custom appearance.

ALUMINUM TOOL AND SIDE-KIT BOXES
The only truly “heavy duty” aluminum toolboxes on the market built with 3/16-inch aluminum and fully (not stitch) welded for extra strength and durability.
BUILT-IN TRAVELING UNLOADING CRANE

LIGHTWEIGHT FORKLIFT KIT
No waiting on customer’s forklift to unload. Unloads and reloads in minutes. Eliminates aftermarket installation that void trailer warranties.
EASY-ACCESS TARP STORAGE COMPARTMENT
Aluminum built-in tarp storage compartment can be built into the floor of the upper or lower deck. This on-deck access location reduces multiple ups and downs on the trailer (lessening the chance for falls) to tarp the load, or store the tarp and tie-downs, saving time and energy. Available in various depth configurations.
