All Sooner trailers are manufactured in compliance with the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM). Since its inception in 1987, the NATM serves to promote safety and quality in the trailer manufacturing industry.
NATM members who are verified to be in compliance with the NATM guidelines display a red, white and blue decal on their trailers. The compliance program evaluates whether members electing to undergo periodic inspections by NATM trained staff build their trailers in accordance with federal regulations and other industry standards. The Guidelines for Recommended Minimum Manufacturing Practices for Trailers Under 26,000 lbs. GVWR are the basis for the compliance program evaluations.
As a sign of quality assurance, consumers are encouraged to look for the NATM compliance decals when purchasing a trailer.
