The Clubhouse Story

Clubhouse Trailer Company officially began in 2010 after the completion of their first trailer, Bulldog One. In 2008, the band director at Edmond Memorial High School asked band dad volunteers Drew Taylor and Jeff Hadley to figure out how to solve her growing program’s transportation challenges. Taylor and Hadley embarked on a 2-year effort to evaluate, design and implement a solution that would consider all the risks around students and the loading, unloading, moving and storing more than $1M in performance equipment. When Bulldog One was finished, it caught the attention of other band programs in Oklahoma and, eventually, other states. Trailer production quickly escalated to full-time, necessitating a 2019 company move to The Clubhouse’s current location on the Edmond/Oklahoma City border. Clubhouse Trailer Company was named the overall Greater OKC Chamber Metro 50 winner for being the fastest growing, privately-held company in central Oklahoma in 2019. Our innovative products can be found in states from coast to coast and border to border, supporting high school and college marching bands, drum corps and more.

The Clubhouse Process

Process is paramount to Clubhouse Trailer Company’s success. From project inception to delivery, The Clubhouse strives for constant improvement, innovation and efficiency throughout our team. This begins during the consultation phase to understand the nuanced needs of the program, staff and community at-large. During the conceptual phase, The Clubhouse team engages with key stakeholders to work within budget, time and process constraints in order to develop a highly-usable and efficient solution to meet the specific needs of the program. Upon finalization of the design, the trailer is sourced as either a new or refurbished project. We work exclusively with a trailer broker who has access to a nationwide inventory of trailers in a variety of configurations. Each trailer is DOT certified with all key systems brought to a high standard regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation according to Volume 5, Chapter III, Subchapter B, Appendix G of the Title 49 Transportation Federal Regulation. 

The same diligence and attention is given to the exterior design of the trailer, as our graphics experts work closely with a program to execute on a shared vision for each community showpiece. A trailer is a billboard for a school, and becomes a key component of community pride and goodwill between the district and the communities served. 

Exterior paint and graphic processes include:

  • Careful and thorough surface prep
  • Powerful single-stage paint applied in a climate-controlled, EPA-regulated paint booth
  • Durable 3M™ vinyl graphics backed by the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty
Wrap

Fabrication, installation and testing of all systems ensures the highest quality and functionality for repeated use. Our production materials include:
