History of MAC Trailer
Thirty years ago, Michael A. Conny began his career as a lone entrepreneur, working out of a one-car garage to fix up damaged trailers. Michael’s small business has come a long way since then. Today, MAC Trailer is the foremost manufacturer of dump, drop-deck, flatbed, transfer, liquid tank, and dry bulk pneumatic tank trailers in North America. MAC Trailer's campuses span almost 600 acres and contain more than 1.5 million square feet of space, allowing it to cater to customers across the globe.
MAC Trailer’s Visionary Technology
Despite its success, MAC Trailer recognizes the need to stay competitive in an ever-changing market. As a company, MAC Trailer is dedicated to designing better products for its customers.

MAC ADVANTAGE X-tender
MAC Trailer's new ADVANTAGE X-tender expands the possibilities for fleet operations. The ADVANTAGE X-tender is available in lengths ranging from 53 to 65 feet and weighs the same as a standard combo with the exact base specifications. It allows fleet owners and operators to take on loads they previously had to decline due to length restrictions.

More cubic yards can be obtained for the same price. Through the careful placement of extrusions, the thickness of the panels' inner walls can be adjusted to achieve the best balance between durability, weight, and other factors.
Value vs. Cost
In today's market, trailers from MAC Trailer are known for their quality and durability. With a heavy-duty design, these trailers can withstand years of use and continue to function at their prime. When you compare the cost of a MAC Trailer with other brands, you'll see that there is no comparison in terms of value.

Specialty and Custom-Built Options

A wide range of materials can be transported using a moving floor transfer trailer, from MSW (municipal solid waste) to wood, steel, agricultural materials, plastics, sand, and scrap.
MAC Trailer tippers are used for long-distance transport where maximum payload, volume, and tare weight are paramount. The absence of unnecessary parts maintains the lightweight construction of the tippers. They have a rear bumper and over-slung gate that work with any tipping platform.
Tandem Axle/Tri-Axle/Multi-Axle Configurations
MAC Trailer's multi-axle transfers are the best option for heavy haulers who must adhere to strict road regulations. MAC Trailer has considered the customer's preferences for axle placement, weight distribution, and compliance with local bridge laws when designing these trailers.
Spread Axle/Sliding Axle/Fixed Axle/Lift Axle Configurations
A spread axle trailer is a type of trailer with axles spaced further apart than usual. This spacing allows for better weight distribution and improved stability, making it ideal for carrying heavy loads. MAC Trailer is one of the leading manufacturers of spread axle trailers in the U.S.
Straight Truck Bodies
MAC Straight Truck Steel is your best bet for applications where the strength of steel is essential but where portability is also paramount. You can choose from various configurations that all maintain the same high level of structural integrity while carrying high payloads. During the dumping cycle, this trailer’s straight steel body helps keep the load centered so that it can be released quickly.
MVP Dump Trailers
The exterior of this trailer has the appearance of being weldless because it is made of structural snap-together panels. A reduction in drag and an increase in payload have been attributed to the MVP or MAC Vertical Panel. Lighting and wiring are protected from the elements and road debris by an extruded 6061 T6 aluminum open-bottom rail.
Liquid Tank Trailers

Short Dump Trailers

Tri-axle Dump Trailers
A dump trailer with three rear axles is called a tri-axle dump trailer. The primary function of a tri-axle trailer is to transport massive loads. As a result of having multiple axles and wheels, the trailer’s center of gravity is spread out more evenly.
Gooseneck Dump Trailers
A gooseneck dump trailer is a trailer attached to a truck using a gooseneck hitch. The stability of a gooseneck dump trailer stands out as its primary benefit. The risk of the trailer swaying is lessened when the trailer's weight is distributed over the rear axle rather than the back frame.
Frame-Type Dump Trailers
There are two different dump trailers available from MAC Trailer: frame-type and frameless. Trailers of the framed variety are long-lasting and reliable. It can carry much weight and is simple to load and unload.
Frameless Dump Trailers
It's simpler to maneuver a frameless dump trailer because of its reduced weight than a framed trailer. Also, a frameless trailer has the added benefits of being low-cost and low-maintenance.
Smooth Side MVP Trailers
The structural snap-together panels used in this trailer's construction allow for a weldless, mirror-like exterior. Fuel efficiency and payload capacity have improved thanks to the aerodynamic MVP, or MAC Vertical Panel, and the narrow width of the core panels.
Sheet and Post Dump Trailers
This trailer has become the standard because it is entirely welded with its reliable sheet and post design. Sheet and post dump trailers have a .175-inch wall thickness and a hollow-designed bottom rail, making them ideal for regular hauls.
39-Foot Dump Trailers

Conestoga trailers are a subset of trailers that have been optimized for safety, adaptability, and weatherproofing. Conestogas have a tarping system that can be retracted along the length of their decks, allowing them to carry up to 44,000 pounds.

For freight brokers, you likely need $1,000,000 of coverage or more. This is also true for auto haulers and for other types of hauled commodities. If you use your MAC trailers to haul certain hazardous materials, the minimum coverage increases to $5,000,000.
Depending on the state, you may not need physical damage coverage for your trailer. However, several states require it, and any trailer with a loan is almost certain to require it. This physical damage coverage will pay out the actual cash value or the trailers stated value if it is a total loss.
Importantly, physical damage does not cover injury expenses or liability. Instead, you typically combine it with other coverage to get full coverage. Physical damage insurance can include collision and comprehension. Collision coverage is relevant when your truck is in an accident, whether it is a single-vehicle accident or involves another vehicle. Comprehensive coverage protects your vehicle when it is not on the road. This includes protection from theft, vandalism, fire, and hail.
If you utilize a trailer you do not own, you also need trailer interchange or Non-owned trailer insurance. This will cover physical damage due to explosions, theft, vandalism, fire, or collisions. You need this coverage whenever you pull a trailer that does not belong to you, even if you have coverage for your own MAC trailer. This coverage will include a limit as well as a deductible; trailer interchange insurance requires that a trailer interchange agreement be in effect with a signed agreement. Non-owned coverage does not require any agreement.
Owner-operators also have specific insurance requirements for their trucking business. This starts with trucking liability insurance. It is usually has a limit of $1,000,000 to cover property damage and bodily injury liability. 90% of the industry maintains a $1,000,000 coverage instead of the minimum of $750,000 for certain trucking companies.
On top of that, owner-operators need motor truck cargo liability insurance, physical damage insurance, and truckers’ general liability insurance. Owner-operators who are leased on to a different motor carrier authority need physical damage, non-trucking liability, trailer interchange, and/or non-owned trailer coverage.
The motor truck cargo insurance typically has a limit of $100,000 and includes some exceptions, like those mentioned above. When choosing coverage for physical damage, consider insuring your MAC trailer up to the amount of its replacement value. General truck liability insurance is usually $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 aggregate for general liability coverage. This is different from primary trucking liability. It provides coverage for property damage and injuries not related to active trucking.
The non-trucking liability coverage provides protection when using your vehicle outside of dispatch. It is important to have this if you lease on with another motor carrier (who provides commercial auto liability while under dispatch) or do not have the primary trucking liability. As mentioned, the trailer interchange insurance is for trailers you do not own.
Non-owned trailer coverage is similar to trailer interchange insurance, but it frequently provides more rounded coverage. The biggest difference is that you do not always need the trailer interchange agreement for non-owned trailer coverage but do need it for trailer interchange insurance.
Specific requirements for fleet insurance are very similar. Fleets must have trucking liability insurance (usually $1,000,000), motor truck cargo liability insurance (usually $100,000), physical damage insurance, and truckers’ general liability insurance (usually $1,000,000/$2,000,000).
Some trucking companies will need high-risk trucking insurance. This may be required for a variety of reasons, including:
- At-fault accidents
- Large shock losses
- High out-of-service scores
- Poor CAB reports
- Poor business credit
- Inexperienced drivers (Less than 2 years)
- Being in a high-risk geographical area
Road Ready Insurance Agency can provide this high-risk insurance, ensuring your fleet meets risk compliance and safety measures.
At the same time, Road Ready Insurance Agency will give you tools to reduce or eliminate your high-risk status. These include driver drug test programs, safety courses, driver screening, motor vehicle reports, the national fuel card program, and fleet telematics.
What type of cargo insurance do I need for my MAC trailer?
Cargo insurance is a specific type of liability coverage. It provides coverage for cargo damaged while being transported. You can make a claim for damages to the cargo due to heavy weather or incidents you cannot control, including accidents where you are not at fault.
Before choosing a cargo insurance policy for your MAC trailer, ensure that it meets your requirements, as they have maximum values for the cargo. You must also confirm that the cargo insurance covers the type of cargo your truck will carry. It covers most manufacturer shipments, textiles, and large equipment.
Cargo insurance will not include coins, tobacco, alcohol, or explosives. If you transport any of those items with your MAC trailer, you will need a specialized policy for these high-risk items.
If you carry refrigerated goods, you will also need reefer breakdown insurance. Reefer breakdown insurance covers perishable products, such as dairy, fruits, and vegetables. Reefer breakdown insurance is required if you regularly transport refrigerated goods, as your regular cargo liability insurance will not cover losses caused by the refrigeration unit malfunctioning.
As you look at reefer breakdown insurance, pay attention to exclusions. Some policies exclude meats, pharmaceuticals, and fresh seafood. Some policies also have exclusions for driver negligence or delays. Some even require meticulous maintenance documentation for the refer unit in order for there to be coverage.
Does general liability insurance cover my MAC trailer?
General liability insurance will cover your MAC trailer to some extent. It will typically only have minimal coverage, which is why you need additional trucking liability insurance.
One important distinction is that general liability insurance for your business will cover your trailer in the case of accidents that occur when not on the road. By contrast, trucking liability coverage is there for when your truck is on the road.
Non-trucking liability insurance is an alternative to or supplements your general liability coverage. Like general liability insurance, this policy covers your trucks when they are not actively used for trucking. For example, if you have a fleet with owner-operator leases, the owner-operator needs this coverage.
Non-trucking liability protects you from the costs of bodily injury and property damage when the vehicle is not conducting business operations (under dispatch). It is specifically helpful any time you use your truck and trailer for personal use, but it can also be helpful for any other non-business use.
There are also other types of insurance coverage you can get for your MAC trailer, including long haul trucking coverage, workers’ compensation, non-owned trailer physical damage, occupational accident, umbrella insurance, and fleet insurance, among others.
Owner-operator trucking insurance is another important type of insurance from RRI. This is a specialty of the insurance agency, as it writes more owner-operator insurance policies than other types.
Small fleet insurance is yet another crucial type of insurance, especially for still-growing companies that only have three to ten trucks in their fleet. RRI not only offers this small fleet insurance, but it also offers opportunities to increase your insurance as your fleet grows. It also includes other benefits, such as a free fuel card with savings, claims oversight, critical forms and documentation, and vehicle tracking and telematics devices.
Large fleets receive similar services from Road Ready Insurance Agency, along with a free policy review. RRI works with fleets of varying sizes, from 100 trucks to 2,500 trucks and more. Other trucking insurance you may want for your MAC trailer includes Amazon Relay trucking insurance and tow truck insurance.
Remember that Amazon Relay works with 28-foot trailers, 53-foot dry van trailers, reefer trailers, box trucks, day cab tractors, and sleeper tractors. You will need auto liability insurance ($1,000,000+), motor truck cargo insurance ($100,000+), trailer interchange coverage ($50,000+), commercial general liability insurance ($1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 total), workers’ compensation insurance, and employer liability insurance ($100,000 per occurrence).
