The Company - History of Gas Trailer

The Idea Behind a Gas Trailer

Every good product comes from an amazing idea, which is how Gas Trailer more than two years ago. In the middle of the summer in 2011, a group of aviation buddies came together to talk about their recent flying expedition.

After discussing the events of the day, the conversation led to a discussion about fuel. More specifically, how much fuel was needed for a flight, what were the prices for fuel when it came to flying, and whether or not there was a more efficient way to get fuel for their planes. Everyone basically came to the conclusion that they were tired of paying the high fuel fees at the air field not to mention how the fueling truck company was always late.

They realized that there had to be a better way.

A large, oversize fuel trailer option, which was too big for the needs of the pilots.

The Journey

That group made the decision to look for a portable fueling option, however, even after countless hours of investigating to try and find a portable gas refueling station, they couldn't do it.

The only option they found was an oversize fuel trailer that held enough gas for everyone using the airfield where they commonly flew. Realizing this option wasn't going to work, they brainstormed to solve the fueling problem that they faced. During that brainstorming session, they came up with a fueling idea that would save them time, energy, and money.

The Decision to Create

What was that idea that they came up with? That idea was to So, they made the decision to fabricate a small, lightweight, and effortless to use portable fuel station.

When it was finished, they put the fuel tank trailer to the test and after using it to fuel their Cessna, they discovered they had a product idea that no one else had come up with. How did they make this discovery? The answer was because people kept asking where they could purchase one and after countless questions and inquiries, that group decided to keep building their newly created mobile fuel trailer.

Where Gas Trailer is now

Ultimately, that group decided to turn fabricating mobile fuel trailers into a full blown business venture and found a more suitable fabricating location, instead of an airport hanger, in a section of a business located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was there that the business really took off and for about a year, the section inside this business was big enough, yet in 2012 the business was moved north to Green Bay to streamline business operations along with improving and increasing gas tank trailer model selections.

Now calling the Green Bay area home, Gas Trailer is continuing to grow and is proud to have business partners and distributors both in the United States and the World.

Right now, there are six different models available:

  • Contractor 110 Manual - Holds 110 gallons of fuel and is perfect to use at constructions sites and out of the way job locations.
  • Contractor 110 Deluxe - Just like the Contractor 110 Manual gas trailer, it is a solid fueling option that has one additional feature compared to the manual model. That feature is that it comes with an electric fuel pump, which saves you a lot of time and effort when fueling up vehicles, equipment, or any other machinery.
  • Pro 110 Industrial - The Pro 110 Industrial is a professional grade fueling selection. It can be used in either individual or commercial environments and comes with an aviation grade fuel pump.
  • Pro 110 Industrial FTS - An upgrade from the Pro 11 Industrial fuel tank trailer model featuring a fuel transfer system.
