Neo Trailers: Customizable and Affordable

NEO Trailers: Customizable and Affordable

We brought NEO Trailers to West Michigan in 2014. 

And we’re so glad we did. 

Thanks to the high quality craftsmanship, varying custom options and competitive pricing, NEO Trailers has become one of the top selling brands at Grandville Trailer. 

This article will highlight SOME of the standard and optional features available to you when you choose NEO. If you’d like to see the complete list of options, you’re going to want to head to NEO’s virtual designer. At the bottom of that page you can select the model you’re interested in and hit “create your worksheet.” The link for the virtual designer is at the bottom of this page.

**Note: NEO Trailers makes fully enclosed, aluminum cargo trailers. If you’re looking for something else like a dump trailer, equipment trailer, open utility trailer, etc; then take a look at our other inventory! 

Otherwise, stick around to see what makes these trailers stand out from all the rest.

Standard Features on NEO Trailers

NEO’s engineer department is continually creating new standard and optional features. By staying ahead of other manufactures and maintaining the same great prices, NEO continues to supply us with trailers that our customers love.

The NAS is a popular choice. Here is a great walk-around video where you can see some of the standard and optional features. Check NEO’s website for a few more videos like this.

No matter what model you select, NEO trailers are always a great value. But right now, we have nothing older than 2020 which means you’re getting all the latest and greatest standard features.

Here are some of the standard features in 2020 that make these trailers so different from other brands:

Aluminum Construction

Aluminum is a really good material for trailers. Even though it’s not as strong as steel, it’s plenty supportive enough for hauling UTV’s, snowmobiles and show cars. (We typically recommend an open, steel trailer for those hauling heavy landscaping and agricultural equipment.)

Aluminum is lightweight, which means you can spend more of your vehicle’s payload capacity on your actual cargo. It also improves on MPG and DOES NOT RUST.

V-Nose or The New Bull Nose

I’ve seen a lot of debate on whether or not a v-nose trailer is actually more fuel efficient than a flat front trailer. Years ago, NEO conducted their own research and found that a v-nose truly ensued better gas mileage by 20%. Now you’ll find that all models come standard with a v-nose.

One exception is the new Bull Nose Auto Trailer. Giving you the best of both worlds, this new design offers more space in the front while maintaining that aerodynamic slant.

24 Inch Stone Guard

A nice touch added to all the trailers, the stone guard will act as a shield to your trailer from all kinds of rocks, salt and debris.

Bonded Screwless Exterior Skin

This is where NEO’s design team really takes it the extra mile on craftsmanship. I’m always blown away when I see how sleek and classy these trailers look compared to other brands.

Dexter Spring/Torsion Axles

NEO has chosen Dexter to supply them with all their axles. Dexter is a fantastic and reputable company that has been creating trailer and recreational vehicle parts for 60 years. The type of axle depends on the model that you choose. However if the trailer you’d like comes standard with a spring axle you can always choose to upgrade to torsion.

NEO Trailers

NXP Stainless Steel Latch (Select Models)

This easy to use latch comes standard on several models. Those models with the basic latch can always be upgraded with the NXP latch. They promise that the latch won’t rust and is hard to break into.

Exterior Grade Plywood Floor

We like it because it’s durable, weather resistant and moisture proof. It won’t rot it’s made to be outside and driven on.

LED Lights

Any and all lighting on your NEO trailer will be LED. Most of the trailer industry has made the switch to LED lighting because it’s more efficient, causes less pollution, and will outlast any other lighting.

Optional Features on NEO Trailers

I’m amazed by how many ways you can choose to customize your trailer. NEO offers a huge variety of add-ons to give you exactly what you need. Take a look at what they have to say and then read on to see some of the most popular options:

Each trailer model has a variety of options available so you can customize your trailer for your specific needs. Due to variations in dimensions and option placement, some options are not available on certain models so it is important to first determine the model you’re interested in and then click the VIEW/PRINT OPTIONS WORKSHEET to see a customized list of what you can choose for your trailer.” -NEO

Cabinets

If nothing else grabs your attention, you’ve got to take a look at NEO’s line of cabinets. Created in house, these cabinets are made from the same aluminum as the trailers and make a world of difference in your towing experience. Having a place to put your tools, helmets, clothing and other necessities means that you can stay organized at your campsite or job site.

If you’re not actually in the market for a new trailer just yet, you can order JUST the cabinets and install them in your existing trailer. Click on the link above to browse cabinets and let us know if you’d like or order some!

Spring Assist Ramp Door & ProFlap

The ProFlap was designed by the Engineers at NEO and is a popular option for a ramp door. You can see in the picture that there is no piano hinge on the ramp. This creates a clear, smooth path for loading and unloading. It especially makes a difference when transporting snowmobiles.

Exterior Color and Design

Everything that NEO makes is finished beautifully, but there’s always the option to choose your own color(s) and design. Whether it’s for your business or if you’d just like to match your truck, they’ve got the options to get you the look you want.

Front Ramp Door

A front ramp door in addition to the rear ramp door provides much more versatility and ease of use. If you’re hauling one or more recreational vehicles, you may want to check out this option.

NEO Trailers

Additional Doors

Adding a 14″x14″ fuel door means that you can fill up your sleds inside your trailer when you’re stopped filling up your truck. Or add a 30″x24″ generator door for more adventuring options or work possibilities.

Lights

There are quite a bit of options here for interior and exterior. Loading lights, additional break lights, flood lights and cabinent lighting are all popular options. NEO uses only LED lights which burn efficiently and last a long time.

Electric Add-Ons

Again, NEO offers a lot of really cool custom options here. Add an AC unit and stereo receiver with Bluetooth if you plan to sleep in your trailer overnight for ultimate adventuring.

Interior Wall and Ceiling Options

Give the interior of your trailer a more finished look with aluminum or vinyl siding and some trim. Choose from white, black, green and more.

NEO Trailers

Exterior Features

NEO’s options here are extensive and unique. Some of the most popular features that get chosen are ladder racks, Pro Stabilizer jacks, higher stone guards, awnings and windows.

Interior Features

You can customize your trailer with things like D-rings, kick plate, E Track and even insulation. This is where you can decide on exactly what you need without paying for what you don’t want.

Virtual Designer

At the beginning, I mentioned the new virtual designer on NEO’s website. It’s a great chance to see what your trailer can look like before you even order it. Simply choose the model you’d like, color(s), and design. Then pull up the Trailer Order Worksheet and select the custom options that you want.

I’d encourage you to browse their website too. They have a lot of excellent pictures and videos that can help you in deciding what’s right for you.

As always, please call us at 616-538-2290 or email Sales@grandvilletrailer.net if you have any questions or when you’re ready to place your order. We’re here to help!

Sport Haven Trailers For Snowmobilers

Sport Haven Trailers for Snowmobilers

This has been a weird winter so far. It’s my first winter back in Michigan after eight years of living in other various places. And I’ve got to be honest: this is not the winter I remember!

I’m not complaining though. I didn’t exactly miss the icy roads, the absent sun and cleaning off my car after a 30 minute errand. So I’m in no rush for the inevitable.

I know I’m not alone in this but I also realize that many Michiganders are praying for all the snow so they can bust out the snowmobiles. If you’ve got any snowmobile trips planned, we know just the thing to get you there. We’ve got the best selection of snowmobile trailers in Michigan, but today I’d like to highlight Sport Haven Trailers.

Sport Haven Trailers

Sport Haven Trailers

We’ve been carrying this brand for several years and they keep on improving their product! The 2020 model has a sleek, new look and is extremely popular this year.

Sport Haven Trailers for Snowmobilers

Aluminum Construction

Aluminum is the perfect material for a snowmobile trailer. A 12′ Sport Haven trailer weighs 900lbs while a similar trailer made from steel can weigh 1,500lbs. A lightweight trailer is easier to tow and can lower your gas mileage.

But the best thing about these aluminum trailers is that they wont rust! Through all kinds of Michigan weather, your trailer will keep its clean look and maintain its resale value for later on.

Sport Haven Trailers

New Features

  1. Slide channel tracks for tie downs. You’ll be able to tie down your sled no matter its size.
  2. 3500lb Dexter Torsion Axle
  3. Swivel jack with wheel

The Best Snowmobile Trailers in Michigan

NEO Snowmobile Trailers

Some of you are soaking up the last few weeks of summer and hot afternoons. Some of you are in the middle of back to school shopping and preparations. But it’s already a new season here for us: Pre-ordering snowmobile trailers.

I was lucky enough to grow up in a house with Dave. His passion for snowmobiling provided many thrill rides in the fresh powder and learning to drive them ourselves. He has taken several long trips through Michigan on his snowmobiles- I’m sure he’d love to tell you about them next time you’re at GT. Being a snowmobile rider himself, he knows a good snowmobile trailer when he sees one. We’re proud to have this option at our store and our customers are so happy with these year after year!

NEO NAS All Sport

Being over 24 feet in length, this snowmobile trailer is able to hold 3 sleds and all your gear. Not to mention all your other toys throughout the rest of the year.

LED lights are a must because they can withstand extreme temperatures, last a REALLY long time, and hey- they’re good for the environment too. The drop leg tongue jack is easy to use and the flush lock curbside door allows a third and easy entrance.NEO Snowmobile Trailer

This snowmobile trailer is incredibly designed and one of the best looking products on the market. And the best part? Like all NEO trailers, it is very affordable.

The Small Utility Trailer That Everyone Wants

Floe Cargo Max Small Utility Trailer

A Top Selling Small Utility Trailer in Michigan

“We are getting a new arrival here today. It’s new and cutting edge. It’s smart, strong and stylish. And it’s about time someone came up with this. It’s the FlOE Cargo Max utility trailer.” 

↑↑ This was written in 2014. Now we’re pleased share that this trailer was everything we hoped for and more! Customers are always pleased with the versatility and durability of this small utility trailer. Here’s a few reasons why they have become so popular.

A Little Aluminum

In the trailer world, when we hear “aluminum” our attention is grabbed. It’s no secret that we love aluminum trailers. So that’s why we are such big fans of Aluma and Neo. Aluminum is a perfect base material for any trailer because it is both lightweight and strong. Being rust free and extremely resistant to climate changes, it’s the best material for outdoor equipment in the Midwest. So when we first heard of this FLOE trailer and all it’s aluminum-ness, of course we wanted to know more.Floe CargoMax small utility trailer with a polymer bed

A Little Polymer

One of the things that makes this trailer stand out; its not JUST aluminum. This small utility trailer has a rugged polymer bed. The UV-resistant material is ideal because it does not rust, rot, or dent. Nor will it ever need a paint job. And have you seen it? It looks awesome! small utility trailer that can support a lot of weight

Unbeatable Design

But seriously, the bed. The engineers of this trailer obviously knew what they were doing. You’ll notice in the picture below that the 8-foot frame is grooved to help hold down your belongings. And here is something extra cool: there are collapsing tie-downs that connect to the aluminum frame! Is anyone else asking “why didn’t I think of that?”  Also, this small utility trailer is also built with a full rubber torsion independent suspension. It is really made to be easily pulled behind any vehicle and by (almost) anyone. specs

This Small Utility Trailer Has Remarkable Strength

Between the lightweight aluminum and polymer bed, the smallest model weighs in at a modest 290lbs. But don’t let that fool you. This trailer is a David with the strength of a Goliath. It has the ability of carrying 1800lbs- that’s over 6 times it’s weight! It will have no problem hauling your ATV’s, snowmobiles, or hunting equipment (and hopefully trophies too!)

Need a bigger payload capacity? Check out our other three models able to carry up to 2,230lbs.
showimagerv (2)

If you’re looking for a small utility trailer that will last for years to come, take a minute to look over the details of this trailer and consider the different sizes. We think you’ll like it just as much as we do!

“Thanks to all of you for selling me the Cargo Max trailer. We live in Wisconsin. Older trailer had issues and we needed something to move 4-wheeler, ice house and family out to go ice fishing. New trailer works great. Light weight, tows great on the ice and off. Back in Wisconsin now and can’t wait to haul wood chips. Thanks again to Cargo Max and Grandville Trailer for great sales and service.” – Sandi

6 Reasons to Consider Aluma Trailers

Why Aluminum Trailers in Michigan are on the Rise

Here at Grandville Trailer, we have been selling Aluma Trailers faster than any others. They never sit on our lot for very long. We love how durable and dependable they are and so do our customers!  If you are unfamiliar with Aluma trailers, this post is for you. Here’s why you should consider an aluminum trailer in Michigan.

7814st-utility-trailerAluminum Trailers Don’t Rust

I’m going to  take a second to state the obvious here. Aluma trailers are made from aluminum and aluminum doesn’t rust. Boom. It’s really a pretty miraculous thing for all us Michiganders and mid-west people. The four seasons take a toll on our cars, boats, campers and toys. Having aluminum trailers in Michigan just makes sense.

LED Lights

A lot of trailer owners like to update their trailers by putting LED lights on them. Their energy efficiency and long life makes them very appealing. And because they are mercury free, they have a much smaller environmental impact than traditional light bulbs. LED lights come standard on all Aluma Trailers. We’re glad that Aluma puts such quality into their trailers.

Aluminum Trailers are Light Weight

The average aluminum trailer weighs 25% less than its steel-framed equivalent.  That frees up a considerable amount of your towing capacity so you can use your space on what you’d like. Not to mention that less weight means a higher MPG. If you’re going to buy a trailer, why not purchase one that will be easier on your wallet?

5 Year Warranty

Aluma trailers come with this 5 year warranty. This covers any defects in the material and workmanship of the unit. In those 5 years after purchase, if there is a problem, you can send your aluminum trailer directly to Aluma in Bancroft, Iowa. They will determine if the problem falls under the warranty, in which case, they will repair it free of charge.

Endless Models of Aluminum Trailers

Though their most popular is the open utility aluminum trailer, Aluma makes trailers for everyone. The options are extensive with motorcycle, car and snowmobile trailers, aluminum ATV trailers, car haulers, enclosed trailers and more. When it’s time for you to buy a new trailer, there is no doubt that Aluma can provide what you’re looking for.

Aluma is Widely Trusted and Well Respected

  1. NATM Certified- (National Association of Trailer Manufactures) All trailers are built under the NATM guidelines.
  2. NATDA Members- (North American Trailer Dealers Association) Here is more about them.

“Just got a 8112 utility trailer, it’s a great trailer. Easy to load and light. It pulls awesome. The tie downs are easy to get to, ramp goes down easy and doesn’t squeak at all. This is my 3 Aluma and will continue to to buy more. Thank you Aluma.” -Nate


Head on over to our Aluma page to see what aluminum trailers we have in stock and on order. Keep in mind that we are happy to order your specific model if we don’t have it on the lot!

Want to see another option for enclosed aluminum trailers in Michigan? You’ll love our selection from Neo!

Have a great day and call us with any questions!

3 Reasons You Absolutely NEED This For Winter : It Comes Down To Axle 1, 2 & 3

While visions of backyard BBQ’s, early morning fishin’, hot summer days spent on the lake, giant bonfires, and endless camping weekends dance in our heads, the cold hard truth is…WINTER IS COMING!

Ok, before you get upset that I mentioned that terrible, and most dreaded 6 letter word (for this time of year), I may have just the thing to sweeten this “winter” deal, and trust me, there is such a thing.

The name is NASX Triple, and it’s a beaut.  The NASX Triple Axle Round Top All Sport Trailer is one of Neo’s newest additions, and it’s sure to be a huge hit.

Other than it’s ability to haul just about any and every winter toy you and 10 of your best buds have (and any other toys for that matter), what else does this trailer have to offer you?

  • (3) 3500lbs Dexter Torsion Axles
  • Spring Assist Greaseless Hinge Front & Rear Ramp Door
  • ProFlap™, Ramp Door Flap
  • Side Door Measurements (32″W x 74″H)
  • Front Ramp Door Measurements (61″W x 75.25″H)
  • Rear Ramp Door Measurements (82″W x 79.25″H)
  • 31′ Long, with a 27′ Box Length (for all the fun stuff)
  • Marine Deck Plywood Floor – 3/4″
  • 7′ Interior Height
  • LED Lights
  • Accommodates All Shapes & Sizes
  • 1 Piece Seamless Aluminum Roof
  • Strong But Light Weight Aluminum Body
  • GVRW: 9990lbs.

This trailer was made for fun, practicality and hauling ALL of your toys.  But if this beast has a little more space than you can fill, then it looks like it’s time to get some new sleds.  Ok, but really, Neo certainly offers many other shapes/sizes and colors of trailers that might better fit your needs, and most of them come with a few less axles. 🙂 Check out Grandville Trailer’s selection of Neo Trailers here.

Imagine all of the beautiful pieces of machinery you could haul around in this Neo Trailer…Better yet, tell us about it on our facebook page.  We LOVE hearing the reasons you need a HUGE triple axle trailer, and what you would carry around inside.

5 Irresistible Features on the CJ Heavy Hauler Dump Trailer

Hello everyone! This post is coming to you as we journey from Nebraska to Michigan. It’s always good to visit the homeland and see friends and family. Not to mention swinging by the store to visit and get some new pictures. It’s going to be a quick trip packed with many great memories. I mean, it’s not every day that your brother gets married, right?

I’ll save the wedding talk for another time. Today I really wanted to write about dump trailers. That’s right. I know dump trailers are typically built for messy jobs, but this particular trailer does the job in style. It is filled with many great features and is, might I say, a tad irresistible. Here’s my latest video highlighting the CJ Heavy Hauler: Stock #140004.

As you can see, it’s a pretty serious trailer as far as dump trailers go. There is much more to talk about than what can fit into a short video. This trailer has some features that weren’t even displayed in the video. So I would like to elaborate on 5 aspects of this trailer.

5 Irresistible Features on The CJ Heavy Hauler Dump Trailer

1. Breakaway Kit With Charger

The breakaway kit is great because it gives the trailer an extra measure of safety. It’s battery powered and automatic. In the unfortunate situation of having a trailer break off of the tow vehicle, the breakaway kit will activate a switch that sends power to the trailer’s brakes. This slows down the trailer as soon as possible rather than letting it fly off into the ditch. Because this device runs on battery, it also comes with a charger to keep it going strong.

2. Split Spreader Gate

A gate like this is pretty much necessary for a dump trailer. It opens in two ways. The doors swing open like a typical swing door trailer. The doors also lift up from the bottom to allow dirt or gravel to be spread out in it’s destination.

3. Slide in Ramps

This trailer is designed to serve other purposes as well. The ramps provide the option of hauling work equipment or even toys for when the job is done. The bed is also equipped with 4 D-rings to help tie down anything your hauling.

4. Power Up/ Power Down Hydraulic Pump

This is great because it allows you to stay in control of your trailer as you dump and spread heavy loads. The power down hydraulics keeps the bed moving smoothly until it has returned to its starting point. Another handy feature of this pump is the 20′ control cable. This gives you the freedom to supervise your trailer right next to it or from a distance. You can even manage the trailer from the inside of your truck.

5. Locking Toolbox With Divider

No doubt this will come in handy. You can keep all your extra work gear and tools with your trailer in a big solid steel box with a lock on it. The toolbox stays down while the trailer tips up to dump.


There’s no doubt that this dump trailer was designed for those who are serious about dumping. But if those 5 features weren’t enough, here’s 5 more:

  • Tandem 3″ Cylinders with 2″ Shafts
  • 7k Square Drop Leg  Shaft
  • LED Lights with Sealed Wire Harness
  • On Board 110v Batter Charger
  • Spare Tire Mount

If you are on the hunt for a great dump trailer, I hope this one tops your list of possibilities. We would love to have you stop in and check it out and ask all your questions. The guys are always working towards being helpful and informative without pushing someone to buy a trailer. They would never want you to buy something you don’t need and I think they do a great job! I am a little biased, but our reviews can back me up. If you would like more information on this dump trailer, you can see the full listing here.

But wait, there’s more! 1_34183_1340842_23239048

So maybe our guys won’t be sales-y, but I might be once in a while. It’s just because the more I learn about trailers, the more I appreciate them! Anyways, if this trailer isn’t big enough for you, we have another! It’s pretty much the exact same trailer but a little bigger. This is a 14′ Dump Trailer with just a few upgrades. It’s all about heavy duty and completing big jobs. I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed with either of these CJ Trailers. You can see this 14′ Dump Trailer and all its information here.

Well I think that’s enough talk about dump trailers for today. I’m going to close up shop as were are getting close to our destination. If you see Greg around anytime soon at Grandville Trailer, make sure to give him a big Congratulations! He will be getting hitched tomorrow! (See what I did there?)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and we hope to see you soon!

The Inside Scoop on The 3 “Tiers” of Haulmark Trailers

This past week has been a good week because we are here in Michigan! As much as we love Nebraska, it’s always fun to come “home” to visit family and spend time in this great state. It’s also a special treat to be able to visit Grandville Trailer. This week I got to spend some time there, catch up with some of the team members and see what else is new with the store.
CIMG4600

And despite the dreary day, seeing this makes me so excited! Is anyone else feeling giddy from the anticipation of sunshine and being outside? I could probably write a whole post on how much I love spring, but I will refrain.

While at Grandville Trailer, I also got to interview Dave on a few subjects. This week we wanted to highlight Haulmark Trailers. They are our number one supplier and brand that we sell the most. They are a great company and they produce solid trailers, making them a popular choice. Here is the video of Dave describing Haulmark Trailers.

I know what you’re thinking it. He’s a pretty cool guy. He sure knows his trailers, but he’s not just here to sell them to you. He’s here to help you find what you need. We want you to get the perfect fit, not spend as much money as we can get out of you.

But back to the Haulmark Trailers.

In his interview, Dave mentioned that these trailers are “Good, Better, Best.” Let’s break that down. I’d like to highlight the 3 “Tiers” of Haulmark Trailers.

The 3 Tiers of Haulmark Trailers

Good: Passport Trailersshowimagerv (5)

Haulmark’s line of Passport Trailers are for Entry-Level customers. I couldn’t say this better myself so here is the description of this line of trailers from the Haulmark Website:

“The Haulmark Passport series is specifically engineered for the entry-level
consumer 
with light-duty applications. Safe, easy to tow and packed with value.passport2
Designed for easy towing.” ~Haulmark

Like Dave said, these trailers are good for transporting lighter material. Some customers find that these are the perfect fit for their jobs or hobbies. However, just because they are “entry-level” doesn’t mean that you miss out on the high quality features. These standard V-nosed trailers come with 24 inch stone guard and tubular steel main rails. You will find a wide range of models with various colors and door options.

showimagerv (31)Better: Transport

The next “tier” of trailers is the middle man; the Transport Trailers. They offer the best of both worlds, making them our most popular seller. Once again, here is the description of these trailers from the Haulmark Website:

The Transport series (TST) is Haulmark’s most popular line of trailers.
transport1It’s no wonder since it is loaded with versatility and value. The Transport is the perfect choice
for recreational and light commercial applications. ~Haulmark

Because this line of trailers is heavy duty and still affordable, they tend to sell more often than the others. Their versatility and high quality craftsmanship allows you to get the most out of your dollar.

 Best: Bear Series cub

There’s 4 types of trailers within the Bear Series: Cub, Grizzly Cub, Kodiak and Grizzly. With Cub being the smallest and Grizzly being the largest, there is a wide variety of trailers in this series. These are more heavy duty and designed for someone hauling heavy equipment on a regular basis. These are Haulmark’s top of the line trailers. These are valuable trailers that will last for a long time and give you the security that you need.


There you have it: The 3 tiers of Haulmark Trailers. One of the best things about choosing Haulmark is all the choices that you have. They are located in Bristol, Indiana and they have over 400 trailers in stock. So we can typically get one pretty quickly. If we have a trailer that you are interested in but you would like a different color or door style, we can get it from Haulmark in a week. When a customer wants to special order a trailer, it takes an average of 4 weeks to arrive at Grandville Trailer.

Haulmark has been around for a long time and they are one of the most well known brands of trailers. We know that we are selling a quality trailer whenever a Haulmark Trailer leaves our lot. It’s a brand that we stand by and that we are proud to carry. Here you can see our full listing of in-stock trailers. Don’t forget that we can order any trailer that you see on their website. We hope you will consider purchasing a Haulmark Trailer from us if you find yourself in need of a cargo trailer. And as always, we are happy to answer your questions!

Did you like the video of Dave? Whether you just like the video or think someone could benefit from this post, would you please share this with your friends? Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
