October 2020

October, 2020

The past few months have been challenging, yet we hope you are safe, in good health, and been able to enjoy life with your family. Touch of Class (TOCT) continues to experience growth, as many customers have taken delivery of their new Darkhorse Cargo Brand Trailers in 2020 with great reviews (see Below). Because of high demand and tight post-Covid shutdown production schedules, TOCT inventories of In-Stock trailers are extremely low, as once a trailer has completed production, it has usually already been sold. Please pay special attention to the announcements below if considering a new custom or Standard In-Stock trailer in the coming weeks.

A family-owned company, NEO offers a full lineup of great looking models that fits the needs of our customers well. With production schedules, the first TOCT NEO Trailers will be available in April, 2021. More info below.  TOCT wishes to thank   MTI Trailers for the relationships we've had the past 10 years. 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • Current RV and Trailer Industry Production:  Extremely High Demand, Raw Materials & Supply Issues, tight Production Schedules, Low Inventories and manufacturer Price Increases - is the current state of the Trailer and RV Industries. Many trailer companies have production waits as much as 3-5 months, especially aluminum frame.  TOCT In-Stock inventory of Darkhorse Steel Frame Combination Models has been low the past two months, but should improve in late November.  If you are in need of a trailer, please understand the above and contact us soon for details in planning your customized dream trailer.

TOCT is revising and enhancing our Website to reflect the recent trailer Brand changes. (2) New Mid Deck Training Videos, filmed late summer in beautiful locations are now online.

    TESTIMONIALS:

    You're right David, the 27' Combo tows great. Thanks again. Kurt D. - MN

    I have bought 50 trailers for my businesses the last 25 years. My recent trailer needed to be special for a new motorcycling tour company startup. I found the TOCT website and contacted David, who along with the design and production team at Darkhorse provided a final product that will make you and your company look best in class. Simply put, David offers a one on one personalized experience from the first call until your new trailer is in your hands. Thanks again.  Bill E. - Telluride, CO

     

    Just a note to say thanks to David at TOCT and Dennis Smith and all his crews at Darkhorse Trailers. In January, 2020, our Media Company was awarded the contract to build a Sports Television Production Trailer for the University of West Virginia. David and I had been in contact for some time discussing overall look, strength, and unique design with a false floor to safely run cable for multiple workstations. Numerous CAD drawings were finalized and approved for production - then Covid-19 hit and our deadlines dwindled to just over 2 months when the factory was able to resume trailer production. Due to the efficient work from all Darkhorse production crews, we were able to take delivery and finish installing the special broadcast equipment. From the outside, it looks like a standard 34' White Mid Deck + 12" extra height and special doors. But the inside houses $600K of broadcast electronics divided into 3 sections - Audio, Production and Engineering. We were able to deliver the finished project to U of West Virginia on time. Again a big thanks to David and Dennis for a job well done.  Don E. - Shop Manager, LTN Global Productions

    Summary:

    I'm excited to see the enthusiasm for our two new Trailer Brands - Darkhorse Cargo and NEO and for their great work ethic in providing excellent quality workmanship and Value to our custsomers.  We've got more exciting new announcements we will soon share for 2021.  Please be patient as we revise our website and make it easier for you to access information and updated inventory as trailers finish production.  Let's continue to pray for our country's Leadership and for all military, Police and other First Responders - and their families, who put their lives on the line each day for all Americans. TOCT is dedicated in Delivering More Value and the best possible Premium quality Trailers hauling your vehicles or in helping your business succeed.  Please contact us soon by phone, email, text or Facebook Marketing in planning your next dream trailer.  Thanks again and we look forward to working with you.
