An Innovative Approach to Hauling

During the 1960’s Aero recognized the need for a tarping solution for flatbed trailers that would protect whatever is being hauled without limiting the room for hauling. This was the inspiration behind the Side Kit. Aero’s Side Kits are the strongest, lightest you can buy, with every component engineered especially for the job it’s intended to do. If you have a load to haul, Aero has a Side Kit to keep the weather out and your load safe.
