Putting a new renew or combo reefer unit on a used trailer gives you the advantages of a new reefer (efficiency, reliability, years of service) but saves the buyer roughly $30,000 off the cost of and all new trailer. The only difference is the reefer box itself. At that savings, it is easily possible to buy 3 Renew Reefer trailers for the price of 2 all new reefers!

Refrigerated trailer boxes only lose about 3% of their insulated value per year, so trailers that are 3-5 years old are still highly efficient.

Either. Most buyers are choosing the 2018 Carrier 7500 or Thermo King C600 unit. The Carrier reefer unit is often $4-6,000 less expensive than the comparable Thermo King unit.
