is the ultimate car, truck and motorcycle trailer!
Trailer Plans are Revealed for the first time!
By Wally Cass,
Towing Business Owner and Operator. Trailer Designer
If you are looking
to purchase a trailer for towing cars, trucks, and motorcycles then
I have the ultimate trailer plans for you that was designed and built
by myself, many years ago, in 1998 and now I am making the trailer
plans available exclusively for the first time. Read this entire article
to see how the trailer plans will benefit you.
been in the tow truck business for over twenty five years and I
types of equipment. I have never had
a damage claim since starting my independent towing service
in 1995 and I don't think too
many towing operators can actually say that. I can attribute this
damage free record simply by my choice of using this trailer as my
prefered method for towing cars, trucks and motorcycles.
Of course, I must also know how to
up to the vehicle properly.
For those of you who are thinking about starting a tow
truck or towing business or maybe you already own a towing business,
let me explain briefly how this trailer will benefit you and how I
started my tow truck business with minimal cost. I will tell you
why I chose to operate
of trailer and why it is the ultimate trailer for towing cars, trucks
and motorcycles in the light duty class. I have towed medium duty vehicles
with this trailer but it's really designed for the light duty class
under one ton.
I started my tow truck business
with very little investment back in 1995. It may not have been glamorous
starting with a Ford f-150 and a used tilt car trailer but it got me
started in the
tow truck business with very little investment.
Starting my tow truck business in 1995 "Not Glamorous but it worked"
I already owned the
truck and the cost for the used car trailer was minimal. Who wants to take out a
loan for expensive towing equipment? I sure didn't.
The tow trailer only had 3500
lb. axles which also tilted with the bed and this definitely
needed improvement. The rear axle took all the weight. Not
a very good tilt trailer design.
For economical reasons I also decided to tow only in
the light duty class, all cars, motorcycles and pick up trucks up
to one ton (excluding
one tons). The one ton tow trucks are the start of the medium duty class.
I worked for this towing company
for seven years prior to starting my own tow truck business. I
enjoyed driving this Peterbuilt 18 speed in
the heavy duty class which was a real challenge at times.
I drove every kind of tow truck out
there and my years of prior experience told me the hydraulic tilt car trailer was
the only way to start my tow truck business.
I knew the hydraulic tilt car trailers had a
huge advantage over conventional flatbed and wheel lift tow trucks
when it came to damage free towing, due to the low profile loading
angle of a car trailer.
Also being that it was a goose neck,
fifth wheel type setup, I could jack knife
the trailer, getting into spots that conventional flatbed tow trucks
could not get into.
Advantages of towing with
a hydraulic tilt towing trailer:
Low profile loading angle for damage free
Tow exotic cars and low riders.
You don't have to worry about the drive train (such
as the transmission) on the vehicle being towed. "Unlike a conventional
tow truck where you might have to get out the dolly wheels and
place them under the drive axle which is labor intensive."
and unloading a vehicle is extremely fast.
Towing motorcycles is easy and requires no additional
I don't have to go through the truck scales because
I am under 16000 GVW.
I can get into some really tight places as opposed
to a conventional flatbed tow truck.
Insurance is cheaper.
I can disconnect the trailer and still use the truck
for service calls or personal use.
The tow truck is more comfortable to ride in (softer
Cheaper to purchase or to build (I have trailer
After my tow truck business was established and I had
a steady income rolling in, I decided that It was time for newer
towing equipment and frankly,
no one built the type of equipment that I wanted to use for my towing
business and I couldn't find the proper trailer plans, So I decided
to build my own towing trailers. I actually built two of them.
"The New and Improved Towing Trailer"
The objective was to build the trailer
with the lowest possible loading angle and yet have the fender
height remain low enough for all vehicle doors to clear the fenders
when the doors are opened. The outcome was: the trailer bed height is
only 17.5 inches off the ground and only requires the bed to tilt one and half feet
to hit the ground. I couldn't have been happier with the trailers
low profile loading angle and opening the vehicles door when loaded
cleared the trailers fenders easily.
Car door clears fender easily!
The cost to build this trailer was
approximately $10,000 in materials.
I easily justified the use of a credit card to purchase the materials
as this was a income producing purchase and the debt could be paid
back in only a couple of months, therefore the interest was minimal.
I used only the best materials I could
find. I used Torflex 7000 lb dual axles with built in suspension
which did not require additional suspension parts like leaf springs and hangers. Therefore
the maintenance costs were diminished. I also used diamond plate
steel decking which not only looked good but vehicles with a
missing wheel or two would slide off easier. If
you decide to use a trailer with a wood deck the vehicle missing a
wheel will only dig into the wood and will not slide off. Even winching
the vehicle on the trailer with a wood deck could be a problem.
If you are looking for a conventional tow truck at
around $10,000, More than likely it will be junk and a older model. So
I was happy to invest $10,000 in towing equipment that was brand new
the way I wanted it to perform. The trailer has passed the test of
time and has lasted over 13 years and is still working today! The trailer
has paid for itself many times over.
The trailer does not have
to tilt very far. 17 inches to be exact.
The Strobe light was a bit much and later removed. A
red light bar was later added to the truck (as noted below right)
The fenders originally were made
to fold out using hinges, "for those extra wide loads" but were
welded closed after awhile as they were not needed.
If you decide you want to build your own tilt trailer
then I think you will be very pleased with the looks and performance
trailer. Upon inspection for it's first registration, the state
patrol officer told me it was the nicest
towing trailer he had ever seen and he instantly titled the trailer.
The compliments didn't stop there. I receive compliments from almost
everyone that see's it. Getting business

I really did enjoy the towing information
that you put together. It was very informative and
I feel it will help me with my future endeavor.
I purchased the course a few weeks
ago and after reading through it and viewing the
videos I must say that it has been most informative.

By the way it is a great course. I
learned a lot about how to secure the car properly
and what kind of trailer to look for.
Thank you for your site as well as your
advise...the phone is beginning to ring! I am now part
of QWEST's network. I have applied and/or contacted all
other motor clubs.
I think the towing information is
I purchased last night, pretty good stuff, I have been researching
towing for the past year and this is by far the most info I have
found, specially on the roadside part of the business which is
what I am aiming for. Anyway thanks Wally
I thought it was fantastic, it's very
easy to use and gave me a lot of knowledge on everything
dealing that I'm starting out and the price was fine
and I gave you guys a little extra. I was hoping
that this would help and it did a lot thank you.
Yes, I would recommend to anyone.
I want to thank you for your website
and the material on it. Too often people are unwilling
to share the processes they went through to become
a success and I am very grateful that you are not
one of those people.
I'm excited about finding this towing
information that you have made available because
I asked a friend, that has his own towing service
if there was anywhere I could get towing training
beforehand and he told me there was no type of training
available, other than hands on working with or for
someone already in business. That bothered me, so
I searched on line to see for myself if it was so.
and came across your site and got excited and shared
this with him. I told him that this could help him
also to build his knowledge on towing. and He was
so surprised and told me thanks for letting him know
about it. so I will be forwarding this site information
Thanks again for all the
info you have taken the time to put together. I have
found it very useful in my business planning. I am
currently trying to startup a roadside assistance
business. I am in Raleigh N.C. Thanks again!!!
Just want to tell you how valuable your information has been to us.
I'm not sure what would have happened to our start up towing business
had I not found your website.
We started "towing" 3 months ago and thanks to your advise
about motor clubs we've barely missed a lick.
Thanks and God Bless!

We all appreciate it!
I had a question from Jim regarding
contracting with the motor clubs while using a trailer:
I have talked to other people about going into
the towing business using a trailer.
They say you wont be able to get motor clubs like AAA to contract
with you is that true?
Let me thank you ahead for your time.
I don’t know about the one particular account “AAA” that
you mentioned as I don’t like their towing rates. So
I never attempted to contract with them. However I have contracted
with all the other major motor clubs since 1995 while using
my trailer and I have had no problems signing on. Maybe some
of the towing providers are getting turned away because of
poor quality trailers? Or may it’s a combination of bad,
old trailers or insurance requirements not met.
These are just some of the motor clubs I contracted

The hydraulic tilt trailer that I built and operated in
my towing business is better than most tow trucks out there.
