Default Tmcp #410 tim kollasch from aluma perfecting car hauling with iowa made aluminum trailers

Alumna Trailers started by Dean Maschoff with the noble quest to pull off something he and his friends desperately needed; a handy little lightweight trailer for a golf cars. Dean already worked in the aluminum fabrication department for a major RV manufacturer and that lightweight metal was his first choice. After he built a few he found out there was a great demand for lightweight trailers to pull behind the new lighter vehicles, especially here in the midwest where trailer rust and rot occurs fairly quickly. He soon moved to a much larger manufacturing facility and started making trailers at full tilt. Six years later he had to double the facility once again just to keep up with the orders.

Today, the Aluma manufacturing plant is six times the size of that original space and produces regular builds down six manufacturing lines. Tim says they are very open to special requests that sometimes create new products. Their 25th anniversary line of trailers features a number of customer requested options including in bed LED lighting, special wheels, and unique badging that keeps this trailers both fun and functional. Their drive-on momentum tilt trailers are amazing to watch and their enclosed trailer features you guessed it and actual aluminum frame as well. Tim addressed the weight savings over conventional trailers in the interview, but the end result is that most people with a half ton truck will be able to safely pull their toy thanks to the weight savings alone. He also stated the resale value of these trailers remains high due to their longevity.
