Strehl to combine Rocketail with TrailerBlade and other products to form FleetAero
PHOENIX, Ariz. (November 23, 2020) – Strehl, LLC, a leading manufacturer of aerodynamic components for trailers, is pleased to announce it has purchased the assets of Rocketail, LLC. Commenting on today’s announcement, Richard Senatro, President of Strehl, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome such an outstanding product into our suite of aerodynamic solutions for the trucking industry. Through exhaustive research and determination, the team at Rocketail successfully developed a tail-aero system that finally delivers on the elusive promise of a practical solution for reducing drag at the rear of the trailer. Rocketail will transform the space.”
Strehl will combine its TrailerBlade line with Rocketail and other products in the Strehl pipeline to form FleetAero. As the name implies, FleetAero is comprehensive suite of products designed to optimize aerodynamic performance, thereby reducing fuel costs and lowering carbon emissions. FleetAero products will be offered both as a customized packaged or individual components, according to a fleet’s specific needs and equipment.
“Fleets are much more sophisticated about aerodynamics than they were just five years ago. They want complete, customized solutions that will fit their operations and achieve their goals for both fuel savings and carbon reduction. Consolidating our brands under the FleetAero umbrella reflects our commitment to helping our customers achieve these goals,” added Senatro. “This year has brought tremendous changes. Even more are coming soon.”
Mr. Senatro also noted, “With the addition of Rocketail and the formation of FleetAero, our approach will remain the same: to offer rugged components designed for the real-world, backed up by our products’ performance, with hard data, and outstanding service.”

in Real-World Conditions
Rocketail has been designed for PERFORMANCE, SIMPLICITY & DURABILITY
Rocketail’s wings incorporate a patented “multi-element airfoil,” which can be found in the design of every modern aircraft wing.
Rocketail has been thoroughly tested using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to optimize drag reduction.
STRENGTH & FLEX
Rocketail’s wings are constructed out of super strong, gas-infused polymers for strength and flexibility. In torture tests, the wings bend and flex…but do not break.
Rocketail’s wings weigh a mere 17 lbs each in an industry where every pound matters.
AUTOMATIC COLLISION RESPONSE SYSTEM
Significantly reduces the likelihood of damage from incidental contact.
With few components, Rocketail installs in under an hour minimizing labor costs and trailer down-time.
Rocketail Installation Manual
Rocketail install will take two people with experience about 35 minutes for a dry van and 1 hour and 15 minutes for a reefer. All installations should be performed by an experienced mechanic.
