Your sig just says Texas. What city are you in.

Have any of you guys used Stagecoach Trailers in Naples http://www.stagecoachtrailers.com/. I have used Rhino (out of business), Elliots in Kyle, and C&M in Enis in the past for custom made trailers.

I'm having a 18' trailer , twin 7K w/brakes, 4' solid sides, super heavy duty split expanded metal ramp, spare tire, and LED lights built. The cost was only about $4460.

Now I just need to put my 16' trailer with 4' sides and 3.5k axles and twin electric brakes on craigslist.

Trailer

Here is a shot of the new trailer and their facility with some trailers being built. The owner is getting a 800K loan to double the size of the place. They ship trailers as far as the Carolina's.

I drove about 750 miles today to get the trailer. It was built and ready to go three days after I sent the payment. The place is in Naples TX.

I know of one local company who just had a bunch of their workers all quit and likely go to another company. One of my buddies told me their north location guy quit and took a bunch of their Sun City business with him a while back.

It's tight out their with labor so it's important not to pay your guys poorly and expect the world from them or one day they may not show up and leave you in a huge bind. This particular company does not pay overtime. All it takes is one angry smart worker to complain to the right labor organization and you can have a big expensive problem.
