Trinity Trailer opens new dealership, service facility in Pasco

PASCO — Trinity Trailer Manufacturing, based in Boise, Idaho, is opening a new sales and service facility in Pasco. The grand opening is scheduled for Friday, April 5.

Trinity Trailer makes semi trailers for commercial agricultural use. Trailers range in size from 36 feet to 53 feet in length. The self-unloading belt trailers can be used for hauling crops such as potatoes, carrots, peas and onions. Each trailer has a belt in the bottom, pulled by chains, that unloads crops from the bottom of the trailer. Belt widths vary in size up to 61 inches wide.

The new facility will be the company’s second dealership and service facility. The company also partners with other dealerships across the United States, with sales reaching into Canada and Mexico.

“The new facility will have sales and service,” said Travis Franklin, a representative for the company. “New trailers will be available. There will be used trailers as well.”

“We have a wide range of customers up there. Service will be done there. It will be easier to drive to that location than to drive to Boise or to find a mechanic. It is easier to have the people who built it fix it.”

Trinity Trailer is a family-owned business that opened in 1975.

“The president’s granddaughter invented the concept and got the trailers where they are today,” said Franklin. “They do some amazing things.”

The new dealership is located at 1907 James St. in Pasco, off of Interstate 182.
