Thermal Efficiency for Lower Operating Costs

Every aspect of our design helps maximize thermal efficiency and lower your operating costs. From thermal breaks that prevent heat transfer, to our computer-controlled foaming process that ensures void-free sidewall insulation, the ArcticLite® refrigerated van maintains your specified operating temperature with fewer reefer unit hours.

Damage-Resistant to Keep You on the Road

This refrigerated van is designed to withstand your most abusive freight hauls. We’ve put more protection in the areas that need it most. In the interior, our standard high-performance liners provide exceptional resistance to puncture and abrasion. The duct floor system, with a 16,000-lb dynamic load rating, supports heavier payloads and high-cycle loading and unloading.

Lightweight & Fuel-Efficient

The ArcticLite® refrigerated van delivers lightweight performance without sacrificing strength and durability. Built with high-strength, lightweight materials and components, this trailer increases available cargo capacity and provides freight flexibility in backhauls.

Longer Useful Life

No matter what your trade cycle, ArcticLite® refrigerated vans deliver value year after year. Every aspect of this trailer is designed to extend its useful life—from the high-strength floor system and sidewalls to damage-resistant doors and LED light package, our trailers are built to last.

Types of Financing

Our Team will help you determine which type of financing is best for your situation.
We will discuss the pro and cons for each solution so we can make an informed decision.

CAPITAL LEASE: A capital lease is an operating expense, which reduces taxes. It allows you to use the equipment over a set term. At the end of the term, you own the asset for a nominal fee. You may resell it at that point and you can also upgrade equipment at any time during the term.

CONDITIONAL SALES CONTRACT: A Loan helps you finance the total cost of the equipment. You own the equipment and your payments cover interest on the loan and reduce the loans principle. You claim tax deductions for the interest paid and on the annual amortization of the equipment.

OPERATING LEASES: An operating lease is a rental agreement giving you the right to use the equipment without ownership. This is an off balance structure and several options can be offered once you reach end of term.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS: Once we understand your situation, we can develop a custom solution tailored to your needs.


So, you’re shopping for a trailer and you found one that costs $300 dollars less. Sounds like a good deal, right? Not so fast: that decision could cost you $10,000 dollars over the lifecycle of your trailer. In fact, it’s highly likely that within the first year of ownership, you will spend 2 to 3 times more than what you saved on the initial cost of the trailer.

Why? Choosing a lower quality trailer means you’ll be spending more on maintenance and repairs when things go wrong. It also means less time on the road – eating into your profits. Click to see how Wabash trailers are designed to keep you on the road and save you money in the long run.
