Awards were presented to top dealers.
Felling Trailers celebrated its 35th year in business with their first annual Dealer Appreciation Days on Sept. 17 and 18, 2009. The two-day event drew together Felling’s dealers from as far away as Alberta, Canada.
The celebration started Thursday, with shop tours during the day showcasing some of Felling’s latest technologies that have been put in service recently, like their Custom Bug-O Side Beam Motion System. A product showcase was displayed, consisting of trailers from Felling’s traditional lines as well as some of Felling’s newest products.
Two of the showcased lines were the Perimeter Frame – Hydraulic Tail (Rigid Neck Semi) and the Air Tilt (Deck-Over). Both of these models were recently released in the summer of 2009. Other trailer lines that were on display included Felling’s Reel and Pipe Coil trailers as well as a Custom Boat Trailer, from Felling’s Custom Trailer Division.
Following the tours, dealers attended a banquet in the evening where awards were presented for 2009.
