I don't know why they like the stainless steel trailers, but I'm glad they do. :-)

I take it Volvos must be their standard fleet truck?

Nice fleet.  Looks like they do a lot.

Thanks for posting these Paul. I never seem to catch them standing still long enough for good photos when i'm down south. I did spot a Cascadia though in their yard in VA.  :-)

Wilson has always ran a very uniformed and clean fleet. Always enjoyable pictures!

Stainless lasts longer, although it costs and weighs more.  There is a 50+ year old stainless round-nose Fruehauf inthe Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke that still looks almost brand new, save for a few small dings.  Their newer trailers seem to be white painted aluminum.

Wilson likes to hang on to their equipment for a long time.  I have heard that they still have their WCA64T Volvo/Whites running, and I remember that they kept their White 7464TD's running into the mid-80's, and they may still have a few COE's in P&D use.
It's a Mack thing. you wouldn't understand.....

I remember they used to run single axle white/volvo cabover trucks.
