The largest of our standard shelter sizes, the S816 is capable of handling large amounts of equipment as a self-supporting tower system.

As the top-of-the line portable antenna mast system , the S816 telescoping tower trailer is our best selling and most capable self-supporting tower system.  This unit is also available in a military version as the S816MIL, and any way you look at it, makes for the ideal and efficient telescoping tower trailer or telecom shelter unit.  It is extremely roomy and built to be an integral part of your complete system.
