Six Effortless Ways to Ruin Your Utility Trailer

convertotrailer001-1_edited-1

Trailers are fun to buy and most of us have money to buy as many as we want, right? So it doesn’t really matter how well we take care of them. In fact, the quicker they need a replacement, the better. That means that you can just go buy another one. So let me help you out and tell you the 6 most common (and accidental) ways to destroy a trailer.

6 Ways to Wreck A Utility Trailer

1. Overload Your Utility Trailer

This is by far the quickest way to ruin a trailer. Every trailer has a weight capacity and it often gets overlooked. More importantly, your tow vehicle has a limit to be considerate of. Exceeding your vehicle’s weight limits can result in dangerous consequences like tire blowouts, busted suspensions and even brake and transmission failure. For those of you who do want to keep your vehicle and trailer in tact, you can learn how to find your vehicle’s weight ratings here.

Overloading your trailer can be a double whammy. You’ll be back at Grandville Trailer to purchase a trailer and we will send you over to D&L Auto Sales for your new tow vehicle! And while we’re on the subject of overloads, check out our rental trailer video which displays several overloaded vehicles. Enjoy!

2. Don’t Repack Your Bearings

It’s not important anyways, right? Rusty trailer wheel bearings aren’t a big deal. And if they do fail while you’re on the highway, it will just be a fun experience for everyone! There’s lots of nice people that will be happy to pull over and help. Let’s be honest, skipping this little step will definitely help you to achieve that “roadside experience.” But if you would rather be one of those people who don’t break down, you can read 5 Steps to Repacking Your Trailer Bearings. Better yet, bring it in and have us do it for you. Our service guys are the best bearing re-packers in West Michigan!

3. Don’t Check Tire PressureTyre Inflation

Here’s another opportunity to break down on the highway! All you have to do to blowout your tires is make sure they are a bit under-inflated. It also helps if they are worn out and if you drive fast. It’s really just that simple. However I have heard that some people do like to take care of their trailer tires. If that’s you, you can read 10 Tactical Tips for Trailer Tires in Grand Rapids.

4. Load Unevenly

They say to load your cargo evenly throughout your trailer with about 60 percent of the weight in front on the axle. Weight in the front keeps pressure on the hitch, helping the tow vehicle and trailer to stay connected and maneuvering smoothly. So theoretically, for rough and dangerous towing, all you have to do is put a bunch of really heavy stuff in the back. Easy enough.

download5. Ignoring Those Rust Spots

It just adds character, right? To step it up a notch, you can avoid washing your trailer all together, especially in the winter. After driving through the slushy roads, the salt will eat your trailer right up. Not rinsing it off will cause it to corrode faster. It’s really pretty easy to take care of rust spots, but it’s even easier to just leave them alone and let them spread!

6. Drive Recklessly

This is the most obvious way to ruin your trailer. And this is where I’ll stop joking around. Everybody knows that driving fast with a big, heavy trailer attached to your truck is just not good common sense. Yet somehow, it still happens all the time. It baffles my mind when I see a truck and trailer flying by, weaving in and out of lanes. I know we all have important places to be, but putting other’s safety in jeopardy will never be worth any extra time you may make up for on the  highway.


I certainly hope that none of our readers fall under these categories. And if so, I hope you will reconsider and take better care of your trailer and tow vehicle. Taking proper care of your truck and trailer will aid in keeping yourself and others safe on the road.

Besides driving off a cliff or using a sledge hammer, can you think of any other ways to ruin your utility trailer? What did I miss? You can comment on this link on our Facebook Page. Thank you and have a great week!

5 Practical Products Your Trailer Hitch Can’t Measure Up To

5 practical products_edited-1

Hey again. Remember me? I know- it’s been a while! I wish I could say that I’ve been off working hard and marketing up a storm, but that’s
not true. Life has just gotten the best of me lately.

But hey, I’m back and ready to talk business.

Specifically? Your trailer hitch.

Take a deep breath and calm down. I know it’s exciting stuff, but we have a few important topics to go over. Let’s start with this video of Dave. I promise you will want to watch this one till the end. You won’t be sorry.

I guess if you learned anything from the video, you should know that Grandville Trailer has balls… and I suppose there’s a few other things we hope you took away from the video. I would like to take some time to elaborate on some of the parts that Dave just talked about and take note of the different service options that are available as well. As you read through these, you can also browse through the parts on our shelves right from where you’re sitting by taking our virtual tour. This link will bring you right to the aisle of hitches and ball mounts where Dave was standing in the video.

5 Practical Products

1. Trailer HitchSTK_3401

As you saw in the video, we have quite a variety of hitches! We have some for smaller jobs like carrying a bike rack or cargo rack (I have one on my car- it’s fantastic for traveling from Nebraska to Michigan with the kids!) And we have some heavy duty options for serious hauling. All of our hitches are from CURT and Anderson and our service department can install your CURT hitch for you. It is always best to call a few days in advance for the service garage, but we will always try to work you in.

EqualizerWeightDistribution2. Weight Distribution Hitches:

A heavy trailer tends to pull on the rear of the towing vehicle. A weight distribution trailer hitch serves to level out both the trailer and the vehicle by distributing the trailer’s weight throughout the vehicle’s frame. We have three top quality models that will make such a difference in your towing experience! Check out these three trailer hitches here: 17000, 17002 and 17500.

3. Brake Controls:715g4q5mrgL._SY355_

Dave also mentioned our ability to install brake controllers. If you tow a trailer with electric brakes you will need one of these. We have some really great options in our store, including this one from CURT. This brake control is easy to install, all automatic and even has a sensitivity adjustment. Take a look!

STH_33984. Ball Mounts:

Just like the hitches, we have a variety of ball mounts from both Anderson and CURT. Our ball mounts have different sized drops and different weights to accommodate most vehicle/trailer combinations. You will find that these ball mounts are heavy duty and durable, giving you the most for your budget.

5. Anderson Adjustable Ball Mounts

There are a couple of adjustable ball mounts from Anderson that I would like to highlight. These are designed for people who tow more than one trailer and need two or more different sized ball mounts. Instead of pouring your money into a collection of ball mounts, you can get just one to accommodate all your different trailers. We carry this one, which is all aluminum and has a 4″ drop and 4″ rise. We also have a select few of the steel ball mounts that Dave displayed in the video. These adjustable ball mounts are a really good option!

————————————————————————————————-

Grandville Trailer just wouldn’t be the same without our service department. Our guys work so hard and really do the best they can for each individual customer. In fact, here is recent review from a customer:

Was picking my boat up from Muskegon and taking it home to get it ready for the fishing season when a bearing acted up – I called, talked to John, and while they were booked for several days – they got me in, took care of it, and had me back on the road in about an hour – you don’t get customer service like this these days! THANKS GUYS! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Side note- we are so glad that customers take the time to say such nice things about us. It really helps to expand our business. Plus, it’s just nice to hear good things once in a while! If you would like more information on our Service Department, Greg can tell you more in this next video.

Did you find today’s post helpful or entertaining? Please pass it on! Each and every shared post helps our little business to grow! Thank you!

3 Annoying Things About Your Jack That No One Talks About- And How To Fix Them With The Dropleg Insert

“I just love cranking my trailer jack all the way down to unhitch and all the way back up to tow!”

Said no one, ever. JF1005HZ

Let’s be honest. Turning that Jack a hundred times every time you need to hitch or unhitch is not exactly fun. It’s one of the biggest nuisances of towing a trailer. That’s why Redneck Trailer Supplies came up with the perfect product to take the frustration out of the job. It is called the Dropleg Insert and it’s designed to fit inside the inner tube of an A-frame jack.

Here are 3 annoying problems that your jack may be causing that the Dropleg Insert works to alleviate.

1. Wasted Time

There’s no denying it: Cranking the jack can be downright time consuming. And the more you use your trailer, the more time you will see slip away into the thousands of turns of minuscule movements. The Dropleg Insert allows you to quickly set the Jack at the correct height and move on to the things that matter.

2. Back Pain

Did you know that back pain is the leading cause of disability in the United States? Most people experience some form of back pain throughout their adult life. It’s pretty common for me to hear about those dealing with trailers to feel back pain when cranking the jack on a trailer. If cranking the jack isn’t the cause of your pain, it can defiantly be the culprit of that existing pain flaring up again. With the insert, you can avoid an uncomfortable position with uncomfortable movements. It’s much easier on your back and might help you to not feel quite as old they say you are.

3. Blocks of Wood

How many of you have blocks of wood hitching a ride -pun intended- in your truck bed or trailer? You never know what terrain or slope you might have to park your trailer on, especially those of you working in construction or towing a camping RV. Blocks of wood have become a standard towing accessory (there’s a sales idea) until now! The Dropleg insert provides an extra 8 inches of lift so you can ditch those blocks of wood. Use them for something else or burn them in your campfire. There is much less hassle with this new accessory.


The insert is so easy to install and it fits most 2K-5K A-Frame Jacks. We now have these available in our store for just $15.95. Do us a favor- next time you’re cranking that jack, time yourself and see how long it takes! We’re wondering what the average time is. Let us know by commenting on our Facebook.

Don’t forget to share our post so that your friends can see this cool new product too. Thank you!

Getting Smart With: Trimax Shack-Less Steel Padlock

I’ve already told you quite a bit about Trimax Locks. We love their stuff and we recommend their products to our customers.

Here is a lock that that is very popular and commonly used by our customers in the construction business.

Contractors, I’m talking to you. All you electricians, roofers, carpenters, plumbers and handy men. Do you ever leave your trailer and work equipment on the job site? Have you or a buddy ever had your things stolen out of your trailer? Don’t you think it would be worth it to invest $30 into a lock that will protect your belongings? This lock is pretty incredible and allows lots of hard workers to comfortably leave their trailer at the job overnight.

The Trimax Hockey Puck (THPXL)
thpxlThis tough guy is one of the best options out there. It has a wide range of uses as you can find these guarding traditional and RV trailers, sheds and outdoor storage containers.

I spent some time reading reviews of this lock online and these are just a few of the things that satisfied customers had to say:

“First time I’ve ever used these. Wish I had found them sooner. Awesome product. I never worry about my Haulmark trailer getting broken into.”

“Fits good on a Haulmark trailer, heavy and well built. Peace of mind!!!”

“These locks are probably the most heavy duty locks I’ve seen for a trailer. If you lose the keys, I feel sorry for ya. These are not coming off!”

“This is the trailer door lock to purchase. No one will be able to get this lock off. Don’t lose the key.”

“If you want real security and piece of mind you want these locks. You can key them alike or to match other locks!”


There you have it! This lock is well built and tough. Perfect for guarding your Stealth or Haulmark trailer and possessions. Just don’t lose the key!

5 Exciting Things Happening at Grandville Trailer in 2015

Well, 2014 was an awesome year for us here. We gained a lot of new suppliers, products, and customers. We attended several shows and conventions around the country to learn more about our business and work with new people. We have grown our business in several ways and we can’t wait to see what is in store for us this upcoming year.

Even though we don’t know everything that will happen this year, I can tell you one thing for sure. With Dave Tosh as the owner, we will always, ALWAYS be striving for improvement. So of course, we have a few new things to look forward to this year.

5 Improvements for 2015

1. New Dealer Management Software

No doubt this will be a big learning curve for us as we try to figure out how to navigate the new systems (Please be patient with us as we do so!) But what does this mean for you as the customer?

  • Less time in the store as we will finally have a scanner and we can ditch the pen and paper.
  • We will have the ability to keep better track of you, your purchases, and any work done on your trailer.
  • We can easily communicate with you to quickly inform you of the status of your trailer.

2. New Suppliers

We are building our stock of open steel frame trailers with the help of two new suppliers:

  • Griffin Trailer will supply us with heavy duty equipment haulers, dump trailers, and landscape trailers.
  • JRC Trailers manufactures utility trailers and car haulers. They also do fantastic custom trailers.
    thumb

3. HitchGrip

This is a really cool product that will be arriving on our shelves in March. This was designed for those frequently towing campers or trailers. It takes the grease and awkwardness out of maneuvering your hitch.

Let us know if you want one before March!

4. You Guessed it: More Trailers

Throughout 2014 we had a hard time just keeping trailers on the lot. They kept selling before we even got them. A problem that we were happy to have! This year, however, we want to ensure that our customers have the best options readily available. We currently have over 60 trailers in stock and there are more on the way. We have over 80 on order from Aluma, NEO, Haulmark and Stealth. It’s probably safe to say that we have the most trailers for sale in West Michigan.

Now we’re just hoping that people around here still need trailers. If not, well, that could be embarrassing.

5. Where Are We Going to Put all These Trailers?

In case you didn’t hear, last year we bought a tattoo parlor! Mostly because we thought it would be fun to say that we own a tattoo parlor. But also, that tattoo parlor just happens to be right next door to our dealership. With all this growing we’ve been doing, we were looking for more space to expand our lot. This project is still a ways down the road, though. We are hoping to start the remodel this year!


I hope I don’t sound like a broken record, but I just wanted to say “Thank You” again to all our customers, friends and business partners! Without all the amazing people supporting this little business, we would still be a tattoo-parlor-less dealership with an empty lot! Who want’s that?

5 Tips For Winter Haulin’

I’m sure most of you, if not all of you, have heard about the massive car pile up last week on I-94. Our prayers are going out to the hundreds of people involved as well as the family of the man who’s life was lost.

Winter driving can be scary stuff. I’m one of those people who would much rather stay home and wait a day or two for the roads to clear up before resuming my normal activities. However, that’s not all that practical and not possible for many of you. Despite the snow, we still have responsibilities and places to go. And for those of you hauling trailers around, there is an added threat on the icy roads.

Which brings us to today’s topic:

5 Tips for Winter Haulin’

I have compiled a short list of things to remember when towing your trailer throughout West Michigan’s notorious blizzards.

1.Use the Proper Tires:

Your tires are the only thing on your vehicle that are in contact with the ice, so good tires are a first priority. And if your truck or SUV loses control, your trailer will follow suit. So if you don’t have the means to place winter tires on both your vehicle and trailer, choose your vehicle first. For more information on tires (including the tires that we carry) read Ten Tactical Tips for Trailer Tires in Grand Rapids.

2. Drive Like Your Grandma:

Plan ahead and allow yourself plenty of extra time to arrive to your destination. Travel at a slow and manageable pace. Keep a good distance between yourself and the vehicle ahead of you and give yourself a lot of stopping distance. Keep your turns slow and steady and try to avoid any rapid adjustments.

3. Escape the Jack-knife:

In most slippery situations, if you drive smart and carefully, you should be just fine on the roads. Unfortunately, there are moments when a sudden application of the brakes is necessary. In these moments, you may feel your trailer beginning to slide around. Don’t panic. Ease up on the brakes and steer into the slide to regain control.

4. Use a Brake Control:

We highly, highly recommend making the small investment on a quality brake control. Specifically, the Curt Triflex Brake Control. It’s automatic calibration and sensitivity adjustments make towing so much easier. It decreases your stopping distance which can make a world of difference these next couple months. Seriously guys, you won’t be disappointed if you add this accessory to your vehicle. The extra safety it provides is so worth it. If you’d like to know more, read 4 Key Benefits of The Curt Triflex Brake Control.

5. Rinse Off The Salt:

Okay, so this one doesn’t really have anything to do with safety, but it’s still an important winter maintenance tip! Hopefully you already know that salt can be damaging to your vehicle if it’s left on too long. Whenever the temperatures are somewhere above the arctic grip of death, it’s a good idea to get your vehicle washed or at least rinsed off. The same goes for your trailer. After a trip through the salty, slushy roads, give that baby a good rinse off to keep the salt from corroding it.


 

Well there you have it: our top 5 winter haulin’ tips. We just really want all our friends (and everyone, for that matter) to stay safe on the roads. Please, please be smart out there!

Do you have any tips to add? Please share them with us! You can comment on the link shared on our social media pages or send us an email and we will post it and give you the credit!

The Trimax Keyed Alike Universal Towing Kit

A while back I did a post on 4 Trimax Products That Will Help a Trailer Owner to Sleep at Night. I talked about 4 of our favorite products from Trimax that we carry. Today I would like to tell you about one more: The TCP50 Keyed Alike Universal Towing Kit. If someone close to you owns a trailer, camper, or boat trailer, and you’re still unsure of what you want to give them for Christmas, this product might be worth a look.

If you are still looking for more Christmas gift ideas, you might benefit from reading the Trimax post mentioned above as well as 5 Useful and Unique Gift Ideas For Men.

But anyways, back to this Towing Kit. Trimax put this kit together for you to get the most security for your trailer.81a-g8utWnL._SL1500_

This towing kit includes 3 different locks:

  • UMAX50– Used for when your trailer, boat or camper are not hooked up to your vehicle. It’s 1/2 turn technology stops it from being false locked and the corrosion resistant finish makes it long lasting and durable.
  • TC1– A coupler lock with an internal O-ring and water tight cap.
  • TS32– Used to lock and secure your vehicle trailer hitch. The hardened steel lock is Trimax’s most popular and trusted product.

How to Load an Inline Snowmobile Trailer

If you have been keeping up with us at all, then you probably know we have a whole stockpile of snowmobile trailers for sale on our lot. We are loving all the trailers we got from NEO and I wanted to share a bit more with you about the inlines that we have. Specifically, how to load them.

But first, here are some of the major advantages of purchasing a 7′ wide trailer vs. a 8.5′ wide trailer.

  • Inline trailers are built more narrow with a lower overall height, resulting in easier towing and less wind resistance.
  • The deck does not sit over the tires so they have a lower loading ramp angle.
  • Because snowmobiles are loaded in a staggering fashion, you are able to carry more sleds in less square footage.

showimagervThe NEO NAS All Sport

When you’re heading up north or out west with the guys for a snowmobile trip, it’s nice to have a trailer that can comfortably fit all your sleds. And having an easy trailer to pull is great for your peace of mind and your wallet. There have been a lot of questions as to how to load these trailers though. A common myth is that sleds are loaded in a diagonal manor. This is not true, and we are here to tell you how it’s properly done. 

1. The Front Spring Assist Ramp Doorshowimagerv (4)

This is the door that you will use to load your snowmobiles. (Notice that super low ramp angle!) This is the curbside of the trailer. Simply bring your sled in and place it all the way in the back on the roadside of the trailer with the front skis touching the back ramp door.

2. Start The Stagger

Sled number two will go in front first as well, but on the curbside of the trailer. The front of its skis should be just touching the back of the first sled’s skis.

3. Fill It Up

Keep going with staggering sleds and switching sides. Depending on the size of your snowmobiles, these trailers can hold 3, 4 or 5 sleds. Here is what a loaded inline trailer will look like.
4place1   4place2

4. Drive Out

One of the best things about these trailers is the “Drive in, Drive out” feature. It makes it so easy to load and unload when you don’t need to back up the snowmobiles. And if you want to make your trailer even more awesome, you can deck yours out in some of our accessories from Caliber. (Accessories that, by the way, will make incredible Christmas gifts for someone who already has a snowmobile trailer.)


Hopefully those pictures clear up any confusion on how to load these trailers. We are stocking NEO inlines and we also have NEO deck-overs available to order. Once again, here is our full listing of snowmobile trailers for sale, including some from Sport Haven too.

Is anyone planning a snowmobile trip before Christmas or in January? Don’t forget to check your tires to avoid problems on the road. Take a moment to read Ten Tactical Tips for Trailer Tires in Grand Rapids.

Why You Are So Important

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and it has a lot of us in a sappy, thankful mood. In the midst of Thanksgiving dinner preparations, Christmas shopping and hunting, I wanted to write a cliche post on what we’re thankful for this year.

It’s been two years now with Dave as the owner of Grandville Trailer and we have seen so much growth in those years. We are so thankful for the incredible team here that we get to work with week after week. And we are so thankful for the amazing customers that we have the privilege of serving. Shop 014

Month after month we are setting new records on our sales. And month after month we are blown away with God’s blessings and provisions! We have had several out-of-state buyers and countless west Michiganders purchasing trailers from us. We have been so blessed by our customers as well as our many new suppliers. Grandville Trailer remains a fun and cheerful place to do business and we can’t wait to see how our business will change and grow in the next two years.

To all of our loyal customers, and supportive friends and family: We are so thankful for you! 

Seriously, Grandville Trailer would not be Grandville Trailer without you. We wouldn’t be seeing this tremendous growth without you. We just wouldn’t. We value each of you and we want you to know that you are important to us. So from all of us here, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
