The beauty of a Chevy Truck or SUV is, in part, their capacity to tow. There are about 1.2 million work, RV, boat or horse trailers sold in the US each year. Chevy believes that now is a good time to work with the trailer industry to help them understand where the industry is going with technology. To that end, Chevrolet is partnering with the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RIVA) and the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) to create better more integrated trailering for owners.
Chevy will work directly with trailer manufacturers to improve trailering safety and create safety standards for the industry. Together they will collaborate to improve communication between trucks and trailers. “We are confident that we can collectively improve not only the towing experience for consumers but also public safety, which is why NATM is excited about working with Chevrolet,” said executive director of NATM Pam Trusdale.
General Motors’ future truck executive chief engineer, Tim Herrick, knows that owners of trucks are oftentimes towing something way more valuable than their truck (well, it depends on how much you really love your truck). “Unequivocally, they tell us that they are looking for a better towing experience. Safer, easier, with more integration between their trailer and their truck.”
Truck and tractor safety are extremely important and Bill Volz’s Westchester is eager to support efforts to improve technology and standards. Trucks today are more than workhorses for construction and farms. They are often huge investments and sometimes luxury vehicles, as well. Keeping everyone and everything safe when towing is critically important.
