    • (2) Non-Powered Roof Vents
    • 48" Side Door with Cambar Lock
    • 54" Extended Triple-Tube Tongue
    • Extra Floor Studs on 16" Centers
    • Rear Ramp Door with Spring Assist
    • (2) 12V Dome Lights with (1) Wall Switch
    • Aluminum Tread Plate Stoneguard
    • Surface-Mount E-Track (1 Row on Both Sidewalls)
    • Shelf Across Front of Trailer (24" Deep with 3" Lip)

    Option 2:
