At Bigfoot Trailers, we are committed to delivering high-quality trailers and components directly from our factory to you. Our promise to our customers is to handcraft the best trailers and parts in the industry at competitive prices. Every piece is carefully selected and meticulously assembled at our factories in Florida and Virginia, ensuring the highest reliability and durability.
At Bigfoot Trailers, we pride ourselves on our commitment to quality and efficiency. Unlike many competitors, we do not rely on outside contractors for parts or components. Instead, we fabricate everything in-house. This not only allows us to streamline our production process but also helps us to maintain cost control, giving us a significant competitive advantage. Furthermore, it enables us to build customized trailers that meet our clients' unique requirements.
Our technicians work as a team throughout the entire process, building the most accurate and highest-quality trailers from start to finish. Then, they are ready for hauling heavy equipment up and down the East Coast and across the country.
The first step in the process of manufacturing parts in-house involves fabricating all the non-standard steel components such as fenders, ramp gussets, hinges, front and rear caps, and others. Our highly trained technicians use state-of-the-art CNC plasma tables to cut sheet metal into desired shapes accurately. The metal is then bent with the help of a break, and a robotic cut saw is used to bundle and miter the steel cuts, resulting in significant efficiency gains.
- Extremely consistent trailer production due to specialized machinery
- Use of only the highest quality components for trailer production.
Frame Building On A Jig
Our chassis are constructed using jigs that securely hold workpieces in place, ensuring precise and efficient assembly of our high-end equipment trailers. Jigs allow our teams to work faster with fewer errors than square-up tables. Dexter axles are then added to the frame during this stage as well. What started out as bare sheet metal is beginning to look more like a trailer.
- Our welders are highly skilled professionals who adhere to strict standards.
- Mike, our owner-operator and shop foreman, oversees weld quality control.
- We exclusively use A36 structural steel manufactured in the USA.
At this stage, we finalize the welding of components that make a Bigfoot Trailer. This includes installing our signature ramps, stake pockets, D rings, fenders, couplers, and jacks. These are components that cannot be installed in the jig.
Acid Wash & Painting
We now have a usable trailer, but we need to take a few more steps to make it compliant with the DOT regulations and have it ready to roll out. The assembly team will apply an acid wash to remove all metal components' oil, mill scale, and rust. This will create a clean paint surface for our Evercoat paint system.
Bigfoot uses a high-quality top coat and primer. The top coat is a two-part urethane that forms a much harder outer shell than a powder coat finish, which can flake off. This coating provides a surface that is scratch and fade-resistant and easier to clean and maintain with superior color retention.
Lights, Decking, and Wiring
In this final stage, we install the decking, brake lights, emergency brake, and wiring harness. The trailer is now DOT-compliant and ready for customers across the United States.
