  • Considering buying a trailer instead of a van? Need opinions

    For those who have a trailer- Which one? Whats the good and the bad? I was looking for a trailer that weights less than 5000lbs loaded.

    I have a trailer and a van and I LOVE the trailer for space. I really like Gryphon because they have an inverter system.

      I have a Gryphon and I love it. fully loaded with water it is 3,550 lbs. It tows so nice half the time I forget it is there lol. Joe Virag the owner of Gryphon is wonderful and has been a great help to me with any questions I have had. The inverters are going to be done by Doug if you want to go that route. I would if I were doing it all over again. It is nice and roomy inside. I have had me and my friend in there grooming without bumping into each other. Joe has a lot of great options available too. Not to mention that he is priced better than anyone out there. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about it.

        We just got back from Carolina Groomfest. I was impressed with their trailers even though we're not mobile. I'm considering adding mobile to our salon business.

          I love my trailer!

          I have a 6 x 12 converted trailer and I love it, very roomy, standard sized tub and grooming table etc. Plenty of space to work, about 3000 lbs with water. I pull it with my Durango. No problems at all towing....

            Does anyone consider the length?

            I am always surprised that people know I am coming but never consider where I will park my van? On Saturdays everyone in the neighborhood is home with trucks parked all up and down the street. My van is long enough to find a spot somewhere near the house. A truckw/trailer would be impossible to find a place to park. Even in AZ we have some driveways that are sloped. I prefer on the street tilted so water collects in drain for hydro-surge. It is just preference, but foire me I would not want TRAILER. Turns, everything a trailer is. I have lots of space inside. Backing up is still a careful procedure. Yes, I do ask that they leave a spot for me. Hubby with is trucks and kids forget.Haha, some say I can park in the carport....hey I am not a munchkin, my van is tall and has A/C on top too.

              I have a gryphon and I love it. It pulls ok, but I've never pulled a tariler before this one. I still get a windy wobble sometimes, but I guess that's a matter of twiddling the steering wheel less. They're great otherwise.
