7th Anniversary

Delivering Value 1
As we near the 7th anniversary of Touch of Class Trailers, people often ask me, “David, what is the future vision or plan for your trailer business, as you are quite unique and different from most dealerships?” I quickly respond, “Delivering Value with Integrity and Honesty to each and every customer.”   I want to continue to have happy, excited customers across the US and Canada who understand why we sell great, superior products. That’s what gets me up each morning and why I get excited every time I receive pictures from happy customers like Ken & Jane N. of Indiana and Scott D. of Texas.
TOCT is in the process of revising our website with fantastic new pictures and updated information to be more mobile app friendly and easier to access.  Our goal is to transfer and share the enthusiasm we have for the outstanding MTI Brand and motivate all who are looking to purchase a new trailer, like this new 35′ triple 6000# axle Silver/Black beauty from John S. of Illinois who says “My trailer was so much more than I thought I was buying, towed so true and smooth. Best looking trailer I, my two sons and all my employees have ever seen.”
Those of you who are business owners and managers, ask yourselves this:  What is the difference between a satisfied customer and a loyal customer?  In today’s fast pace world, a satisfied customer has easy access to multiple online reviews, information, specs, videos and testimonials on their mobile device or computer. They can easily be satisfied somewhere else.  Gaining a loyal customer does not happen overnight. It takes hard work, patience and being a good listener. Customer loyalty rises when you as a salesperson are excited in explaining timely product knowledge properly.  If you can transition a satisfied customer into a loyal customer by helping them make the right choices and provide the best value for their investment, they will often come back to you time and time again.
That’s the reason TOCT has a Preferred Customer program of discounts for all repeat customers, veterans and military personnel. It’s been in place for some time but we wanted to highlight and mention to all. Contact us for details. Here’s army Vet Joe M. of TN standing by his customized 29′ Yellow/Black Combo.
Special Announcements:
  1. Because of the tremendous response of new customers purchasing a customized Mid-Deck Combination Trailer (See Mid-Deck Video Here), TOCT will try to have in-stock between 1-3,  Mid-deck Trailers.
    First ones – a 27′ Red/Black and 27′ Silver/Black will be available September 20. Contact us for standard specs
  2. I will be attending the 2017 NATDA Trade Show and Educational seminars in early September.  Looking forward to being part of a special Dealership Performance Training group with Bob Clements, President of Bob Clements International who I worked together with as VP of Business Development for over 5 years during the late 90’s. If you or your people are looking for a great keynote speaker or training needs, please contact him.
  3. The Trailer Industry is so strong in 2017 that it is causing continued shortages of supplies and labor.  Please consider when ordering and in the completion of your new trailer.
Remember…Value….It’s the driving force in creating lifelong, loyal customers.   TOCT is committed to delivering value with integrity and honesty, exceeding our customers’ needs and expectations. Contact us today for that dream trailer you have always wanted to own. Thank you.

Autumn Specials

Fall colors, baseball playoffs and World Series, harvest time and getting ready for winter at the cabin.
Great time of year to be outside on a ATV or motorcycle – and the snowmobiles will soon be traveling along the trails, roads and mountain slopes. The fall trailer order rush is soon upon us so if you wish to secure your trailer in a normal production time-frame, please call us soon

One of the current trends I see lately is more and more customers are selecting a mid-deck Combination Trailer for their needs. Briefly, a mid-deck Combination trailer is the same style and standard specs of a Standard Combination Trailer except we angle the axles 32 degrees which raises the trailer up from the ground 6″ and then we angle the and round off the corners of the wheel wells so that the distance from the floor to the top of the wheel wells is a little over 4″. Great for rough roads or high snow areas because of the increased clearance under the trailer.
Enjoy the training video describing the mid-deck Combo:

I recently attended the NATDA (North American Trailer Dealers Association) annual trade show and educational seminars in Nashville, Tn. Always enjoy this growing show as I look for new and different ideas and options available for the Touch of Class Trailers. One exciting new announcement for the trailer industry regarding axle warranties – and see what new options are available in this brief summary video

Touch of Class has planned well ahead of the fall trailer order rush, so if you are looking for exceptional value, style, long-lasting durability and safety that fits your needs and budget, please contact us today.

Show Time

It’s that time of year – summer Classic Car and Racing events.  Get out and enjoy.  Nothing like putting your best car in a new Combination Trailer from Touch of Class. It’s “SHOW TIME.”

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 12.20.34 PM

I enjoy looking at great classic or new cars, whether a local car show down Main Street, a Regional event like the “Back to the 50’s” weekend in St. Paul, or viewing some hot Ferrari, Lamborghini or Mercedes at a Florida show. Millions of fans each week attend and support NASCAR, Indy Car or drag racing events at venues in Daytona, Texas Motor Speedway, Sebring International Raceway, Gateway Motorsports Park near St. Louis, Bandimore on Thunder Mountain near Denver, Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville and hundreds more.  (I’ve seen all the above).

July Greetings

July 20, 2015

Ah don’t you just love these lazy, hazy, warm days of summer – Camping weekends, fishing trips, family vacations, Friday night car shows and so much more. There’s a rumble building on the horizon in anticipation of perhaps the largest gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts of all time at the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally – AUGUST 3-9.  Many of our TOCT customers are finalizing plans to attend. Wouldn’t you just love traveling with friends and hauling your bikes inside a new Combination trailer to the Black Hills area this year?

By utilizing removable motorcycle chocks, extra D-rings and/or e-track, the quality, versatility, safety and style of the Combination Trailer is a great way to save wear and tear on you and your bikes traveling towards western South Dakota for this special anniversary rally.

TESTIMONIAL
The 29′ White Combination trailer pulled great!  The guys at the factory really stepped up with some last minute details so we could go south for our vacation. I am very happy so far with this trailer.  It has been a pleasure doing business with you.  Thanks David!!
~Greg M. – IA

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:
We are constantly trying to improve and update the TOCT website to make it  more informative and user friendly.

1.    Check out the (3) new training videos posted on the TOCT Website
Interior features, Wheel well dimensions and specs, and Standard front hitch and mid-deck adjustable front hitch. Some great background music. We will be updating the trailer options gallery in the coming weeks.
Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 9.51.31 AM Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 9.50.22 AM Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 9.50.32 AM

2.    TOCT announces it will be marketing a new rear mounted wireless camera that can be mounted above the rear ramp door with an application directly to your cell phone so that you easily view what is behind your trailer when needed.  This is more economical than hard wire connection to an older model mounted camera.  The wireless camera will be a $300 options investment and will be installed at the MTI factory during the production phase.

3.    With so many of our TOCT customers asking for 6″ of extra height in their customized trailer because of higher cab height of their ATV’S, golf carts, etc, we will be building a few standard Combination Trailers in the most popular colors with 6″extra height in the coming weeks.  First ones scheduled for completion around middle of August will be a 29′ Red/Black, 29′ Silver/Black and a solid White 29′ model.

Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 9.52.39 AM
If you’re looking for exceptional value, style, long-lasting durability and safety in your next trailer, contact us today.
