My new trailer was just delivered. I needed an enclosed trailer to stop the thefts. List on it was $2,449.00. I got it for $1,995.00 (plus tax).

Thanks Steve for showing me how to upload pictured.

Nice one Steve

I think you need to change the date to 2009 unless you want to go back in the past

Steve, Great Looking Trailer. Are you going to do Vinyl lettering.

Did you enter my Drawing for free Vehicle Card Holder?

Good Luck!

Good Luck!
Over the winter I will have vinyl lettering put on it and my 3 trucks. Right now I have magnetic signs that are beginning to weather.

I havn't signed up for the vehicle card holder. I use magnetic business cards. I hand them out because if you just grab one, you get them all. I want one to a customer!

I think you are asking me how long I went without an enclosed trailer.

Since I started last year.

If it's 2008, I am only 60. Every little bit helps!

Steve,

What things were you taking into consideration when you were looking at trailers? Were there certain features you liked or disliked?

What about the size of it? What factors played into that decision?

  • Security
  • Rear door drops down to be loading gate
  • Side door
  • Electric Breaks (even though only 2 of three vehicles are set up for it
  • Pegboard on inside sides
  • Roof vent (gets hot here)
  • Locally manufactured (even though now down from 30 employees to 8 due to economy
  • 5 year warranty
