The article offers information on A.C.T. Research senior partner Kenny Vieth's presentation "U.S. Trailer Demand Review," at the annual Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association Convention, held at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Florida from May 16 to 20, 2007. Based on Vieth's report, trailer demand would experience an explosion if the U.S. Congress raises the gross vehicle weight limit on federal highways from 80,000 pounds to 97,000 pounds.
