Back in 1984, the owners of 4 Star knew they had to build a strong trailer for two very important reasons.
First of all, since every trailer was going to be custom built and potentially very different from the next, a strong core design had to be developed. This core, which can still be found in every 4 Star, allows you to build the trailer that fits your specific needs.
The second reason was somewhat simpler: aluminum trailers were still a novelty. People did not want to believe that aluminum was superior to steel. People believed that the lighter weight aluminum trailers would not hold up as well as the traditional steel trailers. Therefore, 4 Star Trailers not only had to be lighter than the bulky steel trailers, but as strong if not stronger. With the obvious maintenance factors heavily in favor of aluminum trailers, 4 Star helped pave the way for not only its own niche in the market, but for the entire trailer industry itself.
