Our trailers aren't just a "product of Canada" but completely assembled at our Canadian factory by proud Canadian employees. The magic all happens here in Goderich, Ontario.


The difference is in the details.  Want to see how our trailers compare?

We have a one-piece roof that is two-way taped to the roof bars and walls. Trim is added to the exterior and screwed with stainless steel screws with rubber gaskets.


With this roofing system the roof does not flutter in the wind, preventing leaks.

Frame & structure


We build our frames with structural supports 16” apart on the roof, walls and floor. This is necessary to ensure that the cargo trailer is resistant, strong and durable. We are concerned about snow load in the winter and make sure to have heavy duty tubing in the roof to withstand the harsh conditions.


Other manufacturers build their frames with 24” o/c which causes the aluminum cladding to bend in between the supports causing a wave effect down the sides and roof of the trailer. With the structural stability of the trailer being compromised the frame itself will be less durable and prone to defects.

We only use ¾” plywood on the floor of our cargo trailers as a standard option. We do not use any particle board, chipboard or Dry-Max.

Safety and durability go hand in hand. We use only grade 70 chain and hook on all of our cargo trailers. We use a stronger and heavier safety chain which ensures your safety while towing.

It is known that when steel and aluminum metals touch there is a galvanic reaction created which causes premature corrosion of both metals. This is why we use two-way tape on our steel frames to keep the aluminum cladding from touching. Where we do use screws in the roof, trim and lights we use only stainless steel screws that do not cause galvanic reaction. Where we use bolts in the man door and barn door we use stainless steel bolts.

We cut the interior plywood 1" short at the top and hide all of our wiring up and out of the way.  The interior trim is place over the wiring to cover it up and give the interior a clean, finished look.

We only use top brand radial tires on our cargo trailers. Radial tires are superior to bias ply tires in many ways. Radial tires feature better fuel economy, less vibration, a softer ride, and extended life due to less heat being generated by the tire.

We only use a trailer rated tire that is specially made for cargo trailers.

safety compliance


Our cargo trailers are manufactured in compliance with the National Association of Trailer Manufacturers (NATM) standards and safety regulations which allows us to be able to export our trailers to the USA. We are also compliant with the standards set out by the Canadian Department of Transportation. 


Be cautious of any cargo trailer manufacturer that does not comply with the above standards.

NATM and CDTC Compliant

ramp door assistance


The ramp door on a cargo trailer can become very heavy and difficult to lift without assistance, as a result this can create a dangerous situation for an individual trying to open and close the ramp door.


We only use a double spring, double wire assist mechanism on our ramp doors as opposed to a very dangerous single spring assist.
