Hopefully someone will start mass producing these for cheap, so trucking companies will be more will to buy them
It makes so much sense, I don't know why it isn't more common!

Theory: Trailers are often not owned by the Owner/Operator, so the trailer owner has no interest in spending money to save the provider.

As for the big trucking companies -- is it too late? Right now money's tight with the fuel price, so how much extra cash is there to retrofit trailers?

It can only save in the "long-run"...
