5 Trailers Unveiled Monday for Mesquite ISD

Mesquite ISD High School Marching Band Trailers on Display

On Monday, August 14, 2017 Clubhouse Trailers delivered their largest single order to date- 5 trailers for the Mesquite Independent School District. These trailers were all outfitted with full paint and graphics, as well as a suite of Clubhouse Features. Each Band’s group of directors had the opportunity to decide what features best fit their bands’ needs.

Three Bands (West Mesquite, Poteet, and North Mesquite) chose full width Hydraulic Ramps for rear entry to the trailer. The other trailers are outfitted with a set of aluminum Roll-Up Ramps.Aluminum Ramps for Mesquite ISD Marching Band Trailer

 

The exterior graphics were designed by a Poteet Alumni, and matches each band’s unique personality. Our partner sandblasts and paints the trailers, and applies a high quality vinyl graphic across the trailer.

While some simply apply a full vehicle wrap– we professionally prep and paint our trailers, and then apply the printed or colored vinyl to the graphics areas.New Painted Semi Trailers awaiting graphics application and interior build-out

Here, we have 3 freshly painted BEAUTIFUL trailers, shuffling around outside our shop as we begin the interior buildout. Our trailers are typically retrofitted inside our shop.

Lighting

Clubhouse Trailers signature 2nd Floor for marching instruments

Our lighting systems consist of 13 Interior lights, illuminating the 1st and 2nd floors, as well as door or door jamb mounted exterior flood lights for late-night loads.

All lighting inside and out is LED, and is powered through a marine-grade deep cycle battery. A Roof-Mounted Solar Panel mounted keeps batteries charged and eliminates the need for a generator.

Inside and Outside lights are all controlled from a switch panel and all lighting systems include a power cabinet. These power cabinets include a fuse panel, solar charge controller, shore power outlet, and for ramp equipped trailers, the hydraulic power unit.

The barn door fence is a great addition to increase safety for members walking and hanging out inside your trailer. The right portion can swing outward to allow loading of instruments by hand, or using our Tubavator™Tuba Lift on North Mesquite High School Semi Trailer with a security gate and fence

Our Tubavator™ is a hydraulic lift that can move Euphoniums or Tubas from the ground to 2nd floor for storage. The barn door gate swings out of the way to allow easy loading and unloading.Tuba Lift on North Mesquite High School Semi Trailer with a security gate and fence

Hydraulic Full Width Ramp

Our 2-piece Hydraulic Ramps are a simple, 1 button deployed and retracted system, and allows incredible flexibility for loading and unloading both floors. The ramp folds up just inside the door, and takes up minimal floor space.

Hydraulic Ramp extendingTrailer ready for loading!

The hydraulic ramp option is made up of the aluminum dual stage ramp as well as the 12 volt hydraulic power unit, its cabinet, a heavy equipment battery and a roof mounted solar panel to keep that system charged. The electrical system for the ramp is independent of the trailer and does not require a generator for power or to be plugged into the tractor. The unit is a sealed closed-loop system and is maintenance free once it is installed.

Fiberglass or Aluminum Ramps

Our aluminum ramps are an alternative lightweight solution to our hydraulic ramps. Each ramp is about 30 pounds, and can be easily stored in a bellybox, or can roll up when flipped upside down.

Fiberglass Ramps are an inexpensive and sturdy solution, and can solve most equipment loading solutions. Generally, five octave marimbas do not fit on the ramp with the difference in front and rear wheel track widths.
