Sturdy-Lite Side-Kits are designed to allow the user to set up and break down the trailer enclosure as necessary. Our lightweight yet rigid panels work in conjunction with heavy-duty aluminum posts to create a highly weather-resistant perimeter wall, while the aluminum bows and 18 oz. tarpaulin fabric create the ceiling enclosure. When disassembled, Side-Kits are easily and compactly stored in an Underbody Storage Rack (UBR) or in the region enclosed on three sides by a turnback Bulkhead (sold separately).

Sturdy-Lite Side-Kits are available for most makes and models of flatbed and drop-deck trailers. Custom kits are also available.
