Benson Trailers is one of more than a dozen premium brands we carry at Star Trailer Sales in Mankato, MN. We still carry some used Benson International semi trailers from the original brand on the used trailer side. However, the company has since been acquired by Wabash National, another huge name in the semi trailer industry. We also carry the Wabash National semi trailers as well. We can accommodate our customers with many trailers, locating the Benson and Wabash trailers that are a perfect fit for the right application.
