THE HISTORY OF SMALL TRAILERS 1935 TO CURRENT TIMES.

WHILE I AM ASSEMBLING THIS ARTICLE THE CHEF IS GOING TO GET STARTED ON COOKING THE EVENING MEAL.

WHEN UTILITY TRAILERS STARTED TO BECOME POPULAR TO TOW BEHIND CARS MOST OF THE TRAILERS EVEN THE FRAME WAS WOOD. TRAILERS HAD LARGE TIRES AS THE WHEEL BEARINGS AVAILABLE WERE SMALL.


SEARS AND ROEBUCK OF CHICAGO, IL. STARTED MARKETING A TRAILER ABOUT 1970.

THAT GAVE SMALL TRAILERS EXPOSURE TO TO PUBLIC AND YOU MIGHT SAY THE LOVE OF THE SMALL TRAILER CONTINUES ON TODAY.


VERSA TRAILER MAKES IT APPEARANCE IN EDITIONS OF POPULAR MAGAZINES WITH A MAN OUT IN THE FIELD AND THE MEN LIKE THE SIZE AND START DREAMING ABOUT IT AS A GEAR TRAILER FOR HUNTING, FISHING, AND CAMPING.


SNOWCO AND OTHERS BUILT TILT BED TRAILERS THAT WERE VERY DANGEROUS. FOR JOHN DEER AND ALLIS CHALMERS. TILT BEDS ARE DANGEROUS


THIS PHOTO WAS IN THE POPULAR SCIENCE 1975 AUGUST ISSUE.

IT DESCRIBED THE TRAILER VERY WELL WITH DETAILS AS TO CARRYING CAPACITY AND PRICE.

THE TIRES WERE LARGE AND IN SOME CASES LARGER THAN THE TIRES ON THE CAR.

THE TRAILERS WERE DRIVING PAST MY OFFICE IN 1965. MY WINDOW VIEWED THE STREET. EVERY TIME I SAW ONE, I SAID TO MYSELF, TO BIG AND BULKY.


IN THE SAME ISSUE WAS THE COLEMAN VERSA TRAILER.

IT WAS MORE STREAMLINED, EASY OPEN COVER, SMALL TIRES THAT ROLLED EASILY DOWN THE ROAD.
THE PICTURE WAS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS AND BOTH HUSBAND AND WIFE WENT OFF TO BUY A VERSA TRAILER.


SNOWCO RESPONDED WITH A MORE MODERN LOOK MINI TRAILER WITH STYLED WHEEL RIMS AND A VARIETY OF PAINT COLORS.

BY THE EARLY 1980'S THE IMPORT TRAILERS WERE STARTING TO APPEAR IN ALL THE DISCOUNT STORES. SALE PRICED AT $129.00 TO $159.00 WE WERE SELLING HUNDREDS OF GOOD QUALITY USA MADE TRAILERS THAT WERE ALL WELDED TRAILERS WITH TRIPLE OVERSIZE BEARINGS AND AT $595.00 WITH NO LID TO COVER THE TRAILERS BODY.  WHEN THE CUSTOMER WOULD SAY WE CAN GO BUY A IMPORT TRAILER FOR $150..00, WE WOULD TELL HIM TO GO OUT BEHIND OUR BUILDING AND PICK OUT ANY ONE THEY WANTED FOR $25.00. WE HAD BEEN RESCUING CUSTOMERS OFF OF INTERSTATE 80 FOR ABOUT 3 YEARS SINCE THE IMPORT TRAILERS HAD STARTED BEING SOLD. WE HAD PEOPLE CALL AND SAY THEY ONLY HAD 35 MILES ON THE TRAILER AND THEY WERE BROKE DOWN. IN MOST CASES IF THE TRAILER WAS LOADED WE WOULD TAKE A NEW TRAILER OF OURS OUT TO THEM ON A LARGER WHAT WE CALLED A SNATCH TRAILER AND THEN THEY WOULD TRANSFER THE LOAD OFF THEIR TRAILER TO OUR NEW TRAILER SO WE COULD THEN USUALLY EASILY LOAD THE BROKEN DOWN TRAILER ON THE SNATCH TRAILER. WHEN THEY WOULD GET TO OUR STORE, THAY WOULD USUALLY COMMENT THE NEW TRAIL OF OURS PULLED EASIER THAN THE IMPORT MODEL.  SOME OF THE DISCOUNT STORES FOR OVER 100 MILES AROUND WOULD CALL US AND IF THE CUSTOMER WAS LOADED AND ON VACATION, THEY WOULD TELL US JUST TO GIVE THE PEOPLE A NEW TRAILER IN EXCHANGE AND SEND THE BILL TO THE STORES OFFICE. THE COMPANY THAT SOLD THEM TO THE STORES DID NOT EVEN WANT THEM BACK.


COLEMAN CALLED US IN THE EARLY 1980'S AND ASKED US TO CARRY THE VERSA TRAILER. WE BOUGHT 3 TO START WITH . THEY WERE 3 TIMES THE PRICE OF THE DISCOUNT STORE LOOK ALIKE AND THE CUSTOMER WOULD NOT PAY THE PRICE. WE JUST COULD NOT SELL THEM. THE CUSTOMER WANTED OUR $595.00 TRAILER. ONE DAY A CUSTOMER CAME IN WITH A VERSA TRAILER WITH BEARINGS READY TO LOCK UP ON THE SPINDLE. I ASKED HIM HOW LONG HE HAD THE TRAILER AND HOW MANY MILES HE HAD ON IT AND IF HE HAD EVER SERVICED THE BEARINGS BEFORE. NEVER SERVICED AND 43,000 WAS FANTASTIC. WE HAD NEVER SERVICED ONE BEFORE AND WHEN I TOLD OUR SALES PEOPLE THEY SOLD THE 3 VERSA TRAILERS THAT AFTERNOON.

I CALLED COLMAN THE NEXT MORNING TO ORDER MORE VERSA TRAILERS AND THEY SAID THEY WERE QUITTING MERCHANDISING THE VERSA TRAILER AS THE DEALERS COULD NO LONGER SELL THEM AGAINST THE IMPORTS AT THE DISCOUNT STORES. I SAID DO YOU WANT TO SELL THE REMAINING INVENTORY AND GIVE ME THE VERSA NAME TO MARKET IN THE FUTURE AND THE DEAL WAS DONE. VERSA TRAILER WAS NOW IN OMAHA, NE. WE HAD THE SECRET OF TELLING THE CUSTOMER THE BETTER FEATURES OF THE VERSA TRAILER AND IT CONTINUES ON TODAY. WE HAVE IMPROVED IT IN EVERY WAY WE KNOW HOW TO AND ADDED NEW FEATURES OF THE TRAILING RUBBER TORSION AXLE, EZ LUBE HUBS, EVEN 1 SIZE LARGER BEARINGS THAN NEEDED EVEN AT INTERSTATE SPEEDS WITH THE SMALLEST 8 INCH TIRES. WE SUPPLY ALL OUR VERSA TRAILS WITH 12 INCH TIRES WITH 5 LUG WHEELS AS STANDARD ON MOST MODELS.


UPON PURCHASING VERSA TRAILER WE DISCONTINUED THE TILT BED FEATURE THAT WAS VERY DANGEROUS.


VERSA TRAILER IS STILL THE MOST COPIED FRAME AND SPRING STYLE IN THE WORLD!


EARLY AD FROM THE 70'S
