About Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald Glider Kits is North America’s number one Glider Kit assembler. In 1989, the Fitzgerald family recognized a need in the transportation industry for a quality built Glider, and with already over 10 years experience running a trucking company, they rolled their first Glider Kit out of their one bay garage. The goal was to build a truck that was easy to service, capable of getting better fuel mileage, and extremely reliable.

25 years later, they continue to produce one of the most reliable trucks on the road that can easily be maintained and worked on if needed. Click below to learn more about Fitzgerald Glider Kits.
