Grant Cairns, Vice President of Dura-Haul, said, “We are very excited to have Peak Trailer Group become part of the Dura-Haul family representing our construction trailers and agricul-tural trailers for the entire state of Oklahoma and parts of Texas, exclusively for the greater DFW Metroplex and El Paso.” Peak Trailer Group has built an outstanding reputation of selling high-quality products while providing the best in service, so together it’s a great fit.
