Converting Cargo Trailers into TTTs

Georgia built trailers

Postby rose090999 » Mon Nov 21, 2022 2:46 pm

Anybody have an opinion regarding any of the "Georgia built" trailers such as Diamond, Anvil, South Georgia Cargo Trailers, etc.....Looking to buy new and have some upgrades installed before doing a full conversion. Just concerned about quality or defects since the prices seem substantially lower than if I were to buy local.

I purchased a Spartan from Renown Cargo Trailers. I suppose if you want perfection you should plan to spend much more but it’s pretty decent.

If I was buying another I’d go back to them.

Thanks for the reply. Not looking for perfection just a good, solid foundation to start from. I've looked around on the Renown trailers website as well as Plain ol' Trainlers. Not sure what the difference is between all of the different brands, if there even is one. Seems like they are all built in the same factory but with different labels put on before shipping. Did you have any options installed on your Spartan and if so, how was Renown to work with as far as getting the options installed how you wanted them?

I purchased a 6x12 Anvil Trailer in 2021 to build out and I am very happy with the construction. It was well built with the options I selected and they used 1.5 in by 1 inch studs which are very sturdy. Welds were all well done. The only thing I was disappointed with was the wiring for the lights. It is poorly done with quick connect connectors and etc. This is my 3rd trailer and 3rd different brand. They were all the same when it comes to poor wiring for lights. If you are going to build it out, remove the plywood and solder all wire connections as well as ensure grommets were used when wires pass through studs and that grounds are adeqautely secure to the frame with eye connectos and not just wire wrapped around screws. It is easy enough to do before adding insulation if you are going that route.

I live in Florida and picked up from the factory to eliminate the dealer markups. I did save some and it was custom in any case.

The options I added were thicker skin, extended tongue and extra height. I also ordered aluminum wheels. I ordered with only barn doors in the back. No side door or vents of any kind. That way I could use an actual rv door and put it where I wanted. I also put the vent in the bathroom so it would have been in the wrong place if I’d ordered it standard.

Edit. I also bought v nose with the slant on top. I have some storage in there accessed from the inside and my split system Freon tubes are in there and go out the floor to outside unit mounted on tongue.

I think there are just a few actual manufacturers and plenty of dealers. Spartan manufacturers for Renown but they also sell another manufacturer too.

There are 10 factories in Douglas Ga. that manufacture enclosed trailers. one of which is a Christian based outfit.
All the trailers are about the same frame wise and axle wise, and all the people that make them pretty much have been doing it for a long time.
I'm not gonna say mom's and dad's sent their kids to college, but maybe technical school.
I fully believe you can't go wrong going there and picking one up.
