GT invented what has become the industry’s expected grooming trailer floor plan arrangement, but nobody has been able to duplicate our quality and engineering, which is why GT offers more workspace than any other trailer of its size (and some larger ones). Nobody matches our quality. Period! Learn why!
– The GT Difference –
⊕ We’re mobile groomers. We’re builders, we’re artists, we’re designers, and we love what we do! We create our own large stainless steel and aluminum pieces, which allows us to use an overall smaller trailer shell and still provide as much workspace as a larger trailer. This is because we can maximize every inch of the mechanical compartment.
⊕ FREE Bath Buddy Bathing System — $449 value!
⊕ The standard GT salon is a “shor-line” design. That means the power needed to operate the trailer is from your customer’s home. You simply plug an extension cord from their home to your trailer. (Generator Package available)
⊕ Exclusive reinforced trailer frame with ¼” thick triple-tubed tongue For safe future modifications.
⊕ 11 lb. propane bottle (enough to last up to a week in the winter, even when the hot water heater is left on continuously)
⊕ One-of-a-kind lockable and easy-to-use GT propane bottle holder
⊕ Smooth “screw-less” exterior walls
⊕ Our salons have upgraded 30-mill aluminum exterior skin, which reduces the wavy look that most trailers have.
⊕ Custom purpose-built 26″ door
⊕ Custom rear-entry mechanical compartment hatch. We don’t use large swing doors!
⊕ Upgraded jack (side-wind instead of top-wind)
⊕ Upgraded torsion suspension
⊕ Upgraded exterior LED lights
⊕ Upgraded interior LED lights
⊕ DOT compliant and CSA (Canadian) compliance on light placement and wiring
⊕ Undercoated floor. GT is the only converter that uses Advantech® for the sub-floor, that undercoats the subfloor, that seals the top of the sub-floor with urethane, and that installs floor drains.
⊕ Stainless steel floor drain makes for easy deep cleaning and helps drain water that inevitably spills out of the tub from larger dogs.
⊕ Floor is completely sealed at the walls; you can even hose the floor out for deep cleaning! It costs us about $1,000 to make sure the floor remains waterproof, but it’s extremely important!
⊕ Two ceiling vents
⊕ Highest quality 9,200 BTU RV air conditioner.
⊕ Insulated walls, ceiling, access panel, and door
⊕ 30-amp marine-style electrical inlet on the curb-side of your salon with an adapter to work with a standard extension cord
⊕ Electric brakes. If your primary vehicle doesn’t have a speed controller, your trailer will simply coast. (Note: Some states require brakes on commercial trailers.)
⊕ High quality AGM battery (Caution: many builders use cheaper batteries that vent hydrogen, are often placed near electrical circuits, and are supposed to be – yet rarely are – vented to the exterior of the trailer.)
⊕ No visible junction boxes
⊕ Dedicated fuses for all 12-volt circuits. It meets the ABYC/USGC requirements for marine applications
⊕ Integrated battery charging system from your primary vehicle
⊕ Rapid recovery auto-ignition propane hot water heater with no pilot light and anode rod to maintain
⊕ Additional proprietary anti-freezing features
⊕ Only 5” behind the bathing center for mechanical components (Most builders require up to four feet, which forces them to use larger trailers, but have the same amount of workspace as a GT.)
⊕ 45-gallon fresh water tank with water-saving Bath Buddy Bathing System and 35-gallon dirty water tank
⊕ Exterior water-fill port
⊕ Exterior dirty-water dump
⊕ Interior water level indicator
⊕ There’s no reason to ever open the mechanical area other than for maintenance or repairs
⊕ Safe electrical design
⊕ Powerful water pump, heavy-duty faucet, and adjustable sprayer
⊕ Thick, fully welded 16-gauge stainless steel bathing center
⊕ Full-height tub backsplash
⊕ Four tub restraint eyelets
⊕ Stainless steel tub rack to keep pets elevated over their bath water
⊕ Integrated clean towel tower
⊕ Integrated dirty towel bin on the right side of the tub
⊕ Integrated large sunken storage bin above the tub that holds a tremendous amount of supplies (sized to perfectly hold standard 1-gallon bottles)
⊕ Integrated “small item” rack on the right side of the tub
⊕ 36″-wide Hydraulic grooming table (brand dependent on availability and current quality of what is available)
⊕ Backsplash behind the table
⊕ Our design allows you to actually see the dog’s profile instead of whatever is through a window, which allows you to provide a better grooming service.
⊕ Wall-mounted restraint system so you don’t need to use the dreaded grooming arm ever again!
⊕ Paper towel holder
⊕ Tool caddy with blade holder
⊕ Five stainless steel storage canisters for clippers and sprays
⊕ Protective padded rubber work shelf to place tools during grooming (No more chipped blades!)
⊕ There is no “set up” when you arrive at your customer’s home because GT’s storage solutions are actually designed for groomers. Most GT owners keep their clippers in the stainless steel canisters just to the right of the table, and their scissors and other essentials are quickly accessible in the canisters and tool caddy.
⊕ The work area is designed so that clipper cords and dryer hoses are never strung in the way of your work
⊕ Shear holder
⊕ Three-tiered bin under the window
⊕ High velocity dryer: K9-1 or K9-2 depending on configuration
⊕ Clipper Vac®-capable design with electrical outlet and floor stops; just let us know what you want! (Clipper Vac® sold through Romani, inc. The “Tote” fits best, but the “Mini” will work)
⊕ Wet/dry vac with wide accordion-style hose that reaches the entire work space
⊕ We purposefully avoid using hinged cabinetry. History has proved that hinged doors in a mobile grooming environment fall apart, impede quick and easy access to supplies, and simply get in the way because of how they require arcs to open.
⊕ “Dry-erase” style, easy-to-clean interior walls and ceiling
⊕ Everything we build for the conversion is made from either stainless steel, aluminum, or powder-coated or urethane-coated steel.
⊕ GT offers a 1-year warranty on all of our work. The shell manufacturer offers a 1-3-year warranty depending on component. Some items used in the conversion of the trailer (such as the air conditioner) have their own warranties and GT is not responsible for those warranties. However, we are happy to assist you in handling any such claim.
You can literally start grooming the day you receive your trailer! All you need to supply are your personal effects like towels, clippers, loops, cord, etc.
