Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner.  Farmers and gardeners are busy preparing their ground to plant.  Classic and muscle car enthusiasts are soon loading trailers for their favorite show rallies.  Turkey hunters and trail riders have been busy outdoors on their ATV’s, and motorcycle groups are always planning their next getaway.  It’s an exciting time of year and Touch of Class Trailers desires to keep you informed and updated with important pricing announcements and items of interest and value below.

“After inspecting and picking up my trailer in Indiana I was very pleased with the overall quality. I’ve had the opportunity to haul two vehicles in the trailer and am very impressed with the way it tows down the road empty or loaded.  I’m happy with my purchase and very pleased with the trailer.” Mike S, MN

At the end of January, 2015, TOCT announced that MTI will be having a price increase, but we did not know exactly how much or when the increase was to take effect. At the end of March, TOCT again announced that effective first part of April, expect a price increase of about 5% overall, but final details and MTI computer updates were not yet in place. TOCT honored existing pricing on all in stock inventory and new custom orders until last Friday, April 17th when we received official word of the increase on new custom build orders effective immediately.

Most if not all trailer manufacturers experienced price increases in 2014 and again in 2015. MTI Brand Trailers was proud to announce that they had maintained and kept their prices flat since 2013.  TOCT is proud to remind our customers that even though MTI last increased their prices in 2013, TOCT has held prices steady since 2011.

TOCT is happy to announce that when all is said and done, the base price increase for Steel and Aluminum Frame Combination Trailers will only be from 2 – 2.5% depending upon size. Aluminum prices in general and increased company overhead from healthcare compliance costs contributed to the increase in doing business. Other trailer models from MTI were affected more than 2.5% so TOCT is excited to announce a smaller increase than expected in the Combination models.  One exciting factor contributing to the smaller percentage increase from the original 5% is that on all new custom built Combination trailers, the exterior all LED lighting option upgrade will now become a standard feature.  TOCT AND MTI will continue to provide performance, craftsmanship, safety, service, integrity and value that TOCT customers have come to expect.

***For all existing Combination Trailers in Stock (there are a few remaining), TOCT will hold prices the same until June 15th whereby we will increase as described above.  Please check the TOCT inventory page or call us today for existing inventory still available. Don’t wait too long as they will be going fast.

•    TOCT is announcing new Series 14 Black Aluminum wheel now available which replaces the former Black Lynx star wheels which went up significantly in price, so MTI made decision to go with these new wheels.  All aluminum wheels will go up in price by $20 per set of 4 or $5 per wheel.

•    An extra 6″ height for all Trailer models have gone up $50. Axle Upgrades, Cabinets, Winch and awnings were a few options that experienced a slight increase.  110V electric packages #1 and #2 remain the same price.  Overall, the price increase is not as much as originally thought.
•    April, May and June are extremely busy trailer production months at the MTI factory in Indiana, so please be patient for custom trailers that have multiple options.

We received this Testimonial recently from Eric R. – active military, moving to Alaska on deployment: “Wanted to thank and let you know that everything turned out perfectly with our 29′ Combination trailer. We are very happy and cannot wait to get underway with our move. Thanks for all of your hard work and thank you for honoring us with your military discount. Take care, David. If we ever need another trailer…you’re our guy. We will recommend your company to anyone that asks. Thanks again.”
Eric – Thanks for your kind words.  I am honored by the sacrifice both you and your wife provide all of us each day with your military service. You and so many others like yourselves are truly “American Heroes.”
