Inside Grandville Trailer

I just want to take a minute to talk about our store. Dave and Andrea Tosh took ownership of Grandville Trailer in 2012. They have poured a lot into making the store look as good as it does. They have also worked hard on the inventory inside of the store. We really want our business to be a place where our customers can come for everything they need. We want to ensure you the capability of coming to once place for your trailer service, parts and trailers in Grand Rapids. Before I tell you about what we stock, here are some pictures to show you the transformation of the outside of the store. We are really proud of this!

I recently did a post called More Than Trailers as just a basic overview of Grandville Trailer. But now I want to go a little more in-dept into what we actually have in our store. We like to say that we are a trailer owner’s “One stop shop”. We want to save you from the hassle of searching all over town for what you need. That’s why we have worked so hard to keep our store well stocked. We pay attention to what’s new on the market as well as what our customers come looking for. Here is a list of what you will find in our store. Keep in mind that we have even more that what is on that list. But here are just a few of our main items that every trailer owner should be familiar with.

Tires

STY_3415

We have a whole separate room stocked with tires for your trailers. Every 2-3 weeks, Dave (owner) takes a trip to Indiana to our tire supplier. He comes back each time with a load of 50-100 tires. That’s quite a load! Good thing we sell trailers, huh? So keep us in mind when you need new tires on your trailer.

Locks

It’s a small, inexpensive item that just may save you from losing a large possession. We really encourage all trailer owners to take this extra precaution to protect their property. We carry these right in our store, so when you come in for any parts, accessories, or service, please consider grabbing a lock as well.

Ball Mounts

Here is another thing that we like to keep well stocked. A lot of our ball mounts are top quality and made by Curt. These are big sellers here, and for good reason. We have a wide range of models so that you can have the best selection possible. So check with us instead of searching all over town.

 

Tongue Jacks

This is a necessity for every trailer, so you bet your bottom dollar that you can find them in our store. Once again, we have a wide variety to ensure that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

Swift Hitch Portable Camera System

This is one of our newer products that we can’t get enough of. It is super cool, so handy, and you’ll wonder what you ever did without it. We have had  lot of fun playing with ours. It is very durable and user-friendly. I don’t know why someone didn’t think of this sooner! We love it so much, I wrote about it a couple weeks ago. You can see that post here. We have this on display by the counter in the store, so feel free to play around with it next time you’re here.

LED Lights

LED lights are a great way to give your trailer a sensible, modern update. For one thing, they last for a really long time… I mean, it’s really kind of ridiculous how long they last. We’re talking 10-20 years! Thanks to the fact that they are mercury free, they are much better for our Pure Michigan air. They are perfect for trailers because they can withstand extremely cold temperatures and they are resistant to shocks and vibration. Low maintenance, durable, and long lasting. Why wouldn’t you switch to LED?

Well there you have it. Some of our favorites and top sellers. Check out this video for a peek into our store.

We’ve been working hard and we will continue to do so. We’re proud to have the best parts, service and trailers in Grand Rapids. Happy as we are about how our store is looking, we’re not done. We just purchased the tattoo shop next to our lot. We contemplated learning another trade, but decided on sticking with trailers. Instead, we will be tearing down the building and extending our lot so that we can keep a bigger stock! Stay tuned as we move forward. We’re pretty excited about this! But for now, we’re just enjoying telling everyone that we bought a tattoo parlor!

At Grandville Trailer, we’re pullin’ for ya!

5 Curt Products Every Trailer Owner Needs to Know About

At Grandville Trailer, we love Curt products. We believe they are top of the line and made to last. Because Curt is confident in them as well, most products come with a pretty great warranty. We carry a lot of their brand right in our store. Here are a few of our favorite, in stock, Curt products.

5th wheel hitch

STA_3385

When you walk into our trailer supply store and look to your right, you will see this bad boy on display. This is the Curt 5th Wheel Hitch; model Q20. When talking about 5th wheel hitches, it’s pretty much the best of the best. It has a 20,000lb maximum towing weight and 5,000lbs maximum pin weight. It’s built strong and solid and will give you a smooth, quiet towing experience. It’s spherical axel bearing allows a full 360 degree head movement and the Carbide Black Powder Coat finish gives it extra durability. But what really makes this hitch stand out is the full 10 year warranty that comes with it. So if you’re in need of a 5th wheel hitch, save yourself some time and headache and come see us at GT. We’ll hook you up with this Curt hitch. Check out this video if you want to know more about it.

T-Connector Wiring Kits

The best thing about these kits is how easy they are to install. Make sure you have the right model for your vehicle and you won’t have to do any cutting, splicing or soldering. These kits are also cool because they come with a dust cover and a 1 year warranty. Oh, and did I mention that they’re made in the USA?

Brake Controls

It’s pretty clear to us that Curt likes to offer products that will create a smooth, easy towing experience. Their brake controls do just that, especially the new Triflex brake control. It’s triple-axis motion sensing allows for a smooth, controlled, precise stop. Like other Curt products, the Triflex is so easy to use and it comes ready with all the mounting hardware. It also had a limited lifetime warranty! See what Curt has to say about their new product in this video.

Hitches and Ball Mounts

STJ_3400

We like to keep Curt hitches and ball mounts on our shelves because we believe they are top of the line. After the hitches are welded, they go through several different stages to get them smooth and strong. They are finished with a liquid A-coat and a powder coat finish before setting in the oven. Curt also makes a wide variety of ball mounts so that you can get the perfect fit. We carry many models in our trailer supply store but if you ever need something different, we are happy to order it for you.

Here is a great video by Curt on how to select your trailer hitch.

And here is their video on how to choose your ball mount and trailer ball.
