Default Trailer Parts anyone?

My business has grown substantially in the past couple of years. I've added a retail parts department and would like to offer discounts to members of the site. I've been comparing trailer parts and accessories from both Denniskirk and ebay stores, I was kind of surprised how much I can beat their prices by. Looking for anything trailer related and would like pricing either pm, mail, or call me.

You should make me up a slush gaurd to put on my Triton trailer. How much would you charge for an aluminum one?

Considering it is aluminum diamond plate I think it's already a decent price. Let me look into it and I'll come up with something for you next week.

My tire prices seem to be right inline with other vendors but I'm trying to locate a better supplier. Anything else I'm pretty confident in my pricing.

Diamand plate would be nice but it doesn't have to be diamand plate.

Rich I will have to get ahold of you when I get another enclosed. I'm going to buy one i plan on keeping and doing some stuff to the interior. Speaking of trailers, can you tell me a little more about your new one, either in here or in a PM, I'm looking for a 3 place inline so I don't have to pull such a long trailer, but don't want a deckover trailer.

I still haven't pulled the new inline loaded yet, but I definately didn't like the deckovers. I'll pm you some info on it.

No money brotherman. Just make what you want and I'll put it on here on the left side under "Slednutz quick info". Picture that when you click it it redirects to your site. We get about 25,000 visitors a month in January. Obviously tapers off through the summer.

Unless you want some crazy rotating banner on every page, or on either side of the header (slednutz.com with the 5 pictures), or something heavy duty like that. Then that'd cost you lol.

Absolutely, I started out working on semi-trailers and actually have more parts for them.

Rich you ever thought of picking up an enclosed trailer line to sell? Most places require you to buy so many trailers to start with, but after that it's as you see fit. You may be able to get a group buy together and not have to sit on an inventory of trailers to start out with.

Yes Flatty I intend to start selling trailers this coming summer, 2nd part of my expansion. I intend to carry the Stealth line of trailers which is the trailer I recently purchased, also looking to sell Carry-On Trailers as I do both their warranty work. I have also talked to Nashcar Trailers and Haulmark about carrying their line of trailers as well, I won't make any decisions until I'm ready to go forward though. I don't plan to start selling them until probably June, really depends on how this winter goes.

Damnit, I'm looking at Stealth trailers right now. They look like the best bang for the buck. a 4 place all aluminum down in the cities is cheaper than buying a 4 place steel in ND.

They are a decent trailer Flatty, really can't go wrong. I've toured alot of factories and looked at alot of trailers since there are a buttload of trailer manufactures close to me. They all have the same problems, they build them fast. They have shitty welds, loose screws, leaks.... it's gonna happen. I ended up getting a Stealth partly because I do their warranty work, but they also have better looking welds than some of the all aluminum trailers I see. I got an unfinished interior so I could go over the welds that needed work, and so I could insulate it myself. The title for mine said it was 1798 lbs, that is very lightweight. I won't make you cry and tell you what I paid but I see them for sale all the time for $51-$5500 in a 21-23'.

I'm planning to sell these next year so I would endorse them. As compared to other manufacturers the Stealth line of trailers are pretty damn nice.

The Apache series is $61-7K around here. I don't usually buy "cheap" but I think I'm going to buy an Apache if I go with a new trailer buy some aluminum wheels and not finish the inside. I want the trailer to pull as light as possible. I'm not going to be done much work in the trailer if any. If we're on a trip a sunflower heater will heat it up good enough to work on the sled. I'm waiting to see if we end up buying a new Ford for the farm, if we do I think a 27 ft is in my future. That is big enough for 4-155s which we all ride around here

That is what I ended up with the "Apache" series 21', 16' + 5' V-nose. I answered your pm.
