Design Your Own Custom Trailer with SOM Trailers
So, you want to upgrade to a custom living quarters trailer, but have no idea what that looks like or how to get started. First, let us say that here at SOM Trailers that we have helped hundreds of customers plan and design their own custom living quarter trailers over the years through our exclusive partnership with Trail Boss Conversions. Our process is a simple one. We start by asking what it is that you envision for your trailer. If you need some ideas, please take a look at the videos embedded here at the bottom of the page. We also have a section to view some different layouts that are available. There are several examples of what previous customers have done to get some thoughts and ideas flowing. Once we discuss your thoughts and ideas, we will begin to iron out the concepts that you are looking for; such as how many sleeping accommodations you will need, how large of a slide you may (or may not) need, and the general amount of floor length that you want to end up with on your trailer.
From there we will begin to quote, draw and design a perfectly acceptable layout for the conversion. Once we have completed the drawings for the living quarters, we will help you select a trailer manufacturer from one of the brands that we currently work with. We are currently partnered with Twister Trailer, 4-Star Trailers, and Bloomer Trailers. Once we present you with the different options available from each manufacturer, and discuss the differences in style and construction between the shell manufacturers, you simply choose one to go with. Then we can move forward with drawing and quoting the shell, and horse/stock area of the trailer. Once the quote process is complete we can book your shell and conversion slot with a small deposit. Depending on how full the current schedule is, the build times typically range from 4-6 months.
Just before your trailer shell is set to complete, Trail Boss will reach out to you directly to discuss the interior design aspect where you will get to select all of the interior colors, cabinet species, and design specifics. Trail Boss has a fantastic design staff that makes this process fun and simple. They will invite you into the design center if you are able, and will cover some of your travel expenses if you do decide to come in and meet them to do the design work. If you are unable to visit their location this process can be done via email. We pride ourselves in taking the extra time it takes to do custom trailers and helping dreams become a reality.
