ASPCA Geared Up and Ready To Go

The Field Investigations and Response Team at ASPCA regularly travel around the nation to help animal victims of disasters. Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the team has been on the road to help animals in need from everything from natural disasters to dog fighting and puppy mills.

When the ASPCA came to Advantage Trailer, Jim Groveau was excited to help. It was a wonderful and rewarding experience for the Advantage Trailer to help out the ASPCA field team in the endeavor to stop animal cruelty.
The Advantage Trailer teamed up with the ASPCA to create a one-of-a-kind trailer that would house the team while on their missions to rescue innocent animals. The 53 foot long trailer is a home on wheels for the team with room to sleep 14 people! The trailer is also equipped with 3 full bathrooms, including showers, washer and dryer, a full kitchen and even an office and communication center. The team can fully and easily handle day to day operations within the trailer with ease. The trailer allows the team to be fully-rested with all of the comforts of home, so they can be geared up and give 110% to the animals they are helping.

Today, the trailer is geared up and in action – traveling all over the country from coast to coast – looking to rescue animals from dire situations.

Advantage Trailer Builds Custom Trailer for the ASPCA Team

Advantage Trailers was excited to help in the aid of animals all over the country.

They worked with the ASPCA team to build a custom trailer.

It was 53’ long and it had full sleeping quarters for up to 15 people, three full bathrooms, full kitchen, and featured a office/communication center.

This is a fully self-contained unit with a custom three room heating and air system by Fujitsu.

Jim Groveau was involved with this project from start to finish. From pre-design to full detailed layout and functionality to support up to 15 people at all times and be ready to go in any situation from Natural disasters to dog fighting and puppy mill raids. Jim Groveau and Advantage Trailers have a real passion in helping ASPCA protect our animals throughout this country.


Advantage Trailer: One-of-a-Kind Creation

The story of Advantage Trailer’s newest creation starts with a 1954 Corvette and a die cast model car and ends with a one-of-a-kind trailer that leaves car lovers speechless.

It all begins on a November day just last year when a customer brought in a mint-condition die cast model car still in the box for his salesperson – admittedly having no true use for the car.  As chance would have it, the model car was nearly identical to the 1954 Corvette that Graff team had just rebuilt for Mr. Hank Graff as a retirement gift.  The team couldn’t help but beg the question, “Can we make this life-size?”  The Advantage Trailer team was excited by the challenge and hit the ground running.

Just a few short months later, an incredible, true-to-life replica of the model car box was complete.  Not only does this car hauling trailer provide a beautiful showcase for a beautiful car, but it also includes showroom-style lighting to accentuate the sleek, distinctive style of the C1 Corvette.  The 28-foot long, 10-foot tall car hauler showcases the car only as a classic beauty should be.  The entire back panel of the trailer features a life-size photograph of the car with a license plate holder in place of the car’s license plate for that of the trailer.  The trailer lights shine through in the exact fashion of the car as well.

The trailer was built first and foremost as display for the Corvette, but the back panel also functions as a loading ramp to place nearly any car in the trailer.  The car hauler will be unveiled at the Back to the Bricks events, where car aficionados will be able to drive their own ride in the trailer for a photo opportunity.

A brilliant idea, prompted simply by coincidence, this brilliant creation is truly unique.  The car hauling trailer can be seen at a variety of Hank Graff promotional events, so you too can see your car featured like a true collector’s item.

Stacker Trailers: More Reliable, More Convenient – Just More

stacker trailersA  stacker trailer stacks.

It stacks cars, motorcycles, golf carts, four-wheelers and just about anything else, as long as the dimensions are right. While they’re the most complex trailers to design and build, stackers are also by far the most convenient and reliable way to haul a load – mainly because you can fit twice as much into a space that’s only slightly bigger than a regular trailer.

Stackers typically have two levels, which makes them somewhat taller than a regular trailer. However, to support this added height, stackers are either made from reinforced aluminum or steel, making them a sturdy, solid addition to any collection of transport vehicles.

At Advantage Trailer, our stacker trailers come fully equipped with hydraulic lift gates that latch every 12 inches – creating a secure foundation for your vehicle (or whatever else, for that matter) to rest on. We can also customize your trailer’s interior: adding an attic, cabinets and other storage space to utilize areas of the trailer that would otherwise be wasted.

If you’re in the market for a quality trailer, call the professionals at Advantage. We’ll provide you with a free, no-obligation consultation and estimate. For a premier custom trailer experience, you can’t go wrong with Advantage!

Advantage Trailer Helps a Houston Business Owner Live Her Dream

Everyone has heard of food trucks, and most of us love the idea because they’re so perfectly convenient. Instead of having to take time out of the busy day to drive to a restaurant, order from the menu, and wait as food is prepared, a food truck arrives at the door of your office precisely when it’s needed most.

Sheri Falk, owner of a Houston small business called Basiques, wondered if she could do the same thing…except with fashion. Knowing that many working women who purchase upscale clothing have little time to shop, Sheri believed she could increase her sales if she brought her store directly to them. Advantage Trailer is proud to have designed Sheri’s fully-equipped, state-of-the-art moving boutique. The trailer is equipped with seating, curtains for trying on clothes, and a camera that can take customers’ measurements with zero hassle.

Sheri and many other small business owners have started to understand the advantages of running a mobile business. Rent prices in major cities are very high, which makes opening a new business challenging for start-ups. A well-equipped commercial trailer not only allows business owners to target specific markets at precise times, it also saves them thousands of dollars on rent and renovation expenses.

Between lower costs and improved sales, fashion and fast food entrepreneurs aren’t the only small business owners who can benefit from a mobile marketing trailer. Advantage Trailer is proud to help visionaries like Sheri live their dreams. Please contact us today with any questions you have, and our specialists will work with you to find the best solution for your business!
