Posted by Steve Whittington Feb 10, 2017

Every year the Flaman Trailer Division gather to enhance our product knowledge and customer processes

We bring our partner suppliers from across North America to train with us on their products, new technology and industry trends. We focus our team on customer service and set our product line up for the spring. It is a once a year boot camp for the trailer division to get focused and this year did not disappoint!

As a result of this meeting we have a new additions to our line up. In the spring expect the following new and exciting products:

  • Hook lift Dump Trailer from Southland Trailers -  A powered lift to service multiple job-sites at once

  • Blackwood Decking from Diamond C  IC  - Non slip rubber decking inserts.  Great deck grip!
  • Quest Car haulers from ATC  IC - These Leading edge trailers will now be stocked at multiple locations 

  • Express Aluminum Enclosed Cargo trailers from High Country  - Lighter but just as strong an industry shift is happening and we are leading the charge now stocking in Saskatchewan

  • Detachable Gooseneck Equipment Haulers from Behnke, B-B Trailers  - Big equipment no problem call us to determine your needs

  • Travalum stock trailers - top quality trailers available at all locations


Prior to getting down to work, we like to get the team primed and focused with some teambuilding. So what do you do in the Canadian Rockies?  We  went Ice Climbing and Dog Sledding  (No salesman or dogs were harmed). After a day in the great Canadian outdoors everyone was recharged to learn for the rest of week.

All in all another successful meeting helping Flaman Trailers reach higher, providing new product offering and more focus on our customers.

Trailering 'Rules of the Road' Updated

Posted by Eric Anderson Jun 08, 2016

There are a wide variety of trailer regulations imposed across Canada - these regulations cover everything from annual inspections, to dimensions, to brake requirements.  Your trailer my conform to your province’s regulations, but what happens when you travel into another province?
You may be completely law-abiding in your province, then travel into the neighboring one and find-out an inspection is required the instant you enter the other jurisdiction.  Or maybe your trailer is fine, but now since  you have attached a trailer to your truck, the truck now requires an inspection.  Or maybe the load this time is heavier than last time, so last time you were OK in the next jurisdiction but this time you are not.
Flaman Trailers has grown to become North America’s largest trailer retailer.  This growth is in part due to, and brings with it a responsibility to be aware of the various provincial regulations regarding trailers.
So, Flaman Trailers VP – Steve Whittington created a “Rules of the Road” presentation to address these issues.   This presentation was first conducted at NATDA (North American Trailer Dealers Association) in 2012 and has been updated to 2016 regulations
“Rules of the Road” is available for free download here
If you have any questions or concerns about trailering, we are happy to help!
