Custom Trailer Built-To-Order
Gary Swensen of Yankton, S.Dak., looked all over the country for a mid-size trailer that would fit his needs. However, none of the pre-built trailers he found had exactly what he was looking for so he decided to have one custom built.
  “I wanted a trailer with a rear hitch, steps on the side, tandem axles, brakes, and extra rear lights, with a heavy-duty ramp and rear bumper. Everything in the size I was looking for had a single axle with no brakes. It was my wife who suggested having one built to my specifications.”
  Swensen had worked with Road King of Yankton, S.Dak., before, installing 5th wheel hitches and purchasing parts for his older trailers. “They have a huge workshop with welders, hoists and equipment to professionally build a trailer to exact specifications,” says Swensen.
  His custom trailer is 6-ft. by 12-ft. The fenders on the trailer were built 2 to 3 in. higher than needed so that bigger tires could be put on. With larger tires it can tow up to 5,000 lbs.
  According to Swensen, “It was exactly what I wanted, and only cost me a couple hundred dollars more than the pre-built trailers I found. I also know that if I have any problems, I can go back to Road King with their no-hassle guarantee.”
