Sweet truck and trailer.

This spring I am looking at a new truck and enclosed trailer. I am thinking of a cologe with a photo of my NH with Rake on a yard, another of pavestone, another with mower on a nice lawn, a putting green, surrounding my logo and phone number.

I am leaning towards black.

The truck will be a GMC 3500 crew cab 4x4, duramax. The trailer a 24footer, with a ramp tail gate and a oversize side door with a field office in the front end of it, Wired for a laptop, frig and air.

Tim

Love your truck and trailer setup! I to am an all black guy, but tend to regret it when July and August shows up!

What brand is your trailer and are those custom rims on there?

Great truck as well!

The trailer is an Interstate 14x7 (wish i got bigger) with no regrets on durability. The wheels on the trailer are Centerline polished aluminum wheels. I wish they were chrome plated but there is not alot available for trailers.

Not much looks sharper than black and chrome (when it's clean)

I'm a white/white guy here. I think the black is the sharpest, but only if it is kept cleaned, polished and dent free. Not real practical when you are running a fleet. I have some green because I liked it, but greens change from year to year so I'm now white on white guy for practicality sake.
Loved the looks of that trailer!

Truck and logo Colors

12 trucks and they are all white with green logos, all the trailers are green and we have a white enclosed trailer with white logos. All of our equipment also have logos on them all. Both bobcats have green logos and even the chipper has are logo.
We have made a huge spalsh in this area and just about everyone you talk to has seen one of our trucks out. We also sponsor a lot of different school events, we paid $285 and got are name logo and phone # on the local high school cheer leaders mega phones and pom-poms. We have seen a huge return on this type of advertising form the parents of the children who's teams we sponsor, little league, girls softball, football team, soccer team.

Back to the logos, my favorite is our bucket truck here is a picture of it. You can never have your logo big enough!!!!!
