I blooming love this, I followed a truck the other evening and it’s tail light piqued my interest, I thought “The layout of those led’s look a bit like a crown”.
As I overtook I saw the trailer was manufactured by Krone, which even with my language skills I know is German for Crown, and whose logo is, well, a crown.
I was unashamedly excited that they’d branded their tail lights and searched for any info on them as soon as I pulled over. And sure enough, in 2014 Krone had a manufacturer create a bespoke tail light with the logo both imprinted on the lens cover and formed from the LED’s.
It passes all the requirements for the kinds of things and can be retrofitted to existing trailers.
It’s a really charming piece of branding. A logo in the tail light.
