Even Chip Foose of Foose Design and star of “Overhaulin” has taken notice. Chip recently saw Jimmy, our founder, at an event and took the time to share his experience with JIMGLO Trailers.

“Jimmy – Thanks for Cool Hauler!”

Pro Design Hot Rods … recently purchased an Enclosed Car Hauler from JIMGLO Trailers to transport our high end show cars.  Their quality and their service are second to none.  JIMGLO Trailers, as a family owned business, has afforded us very warm and personal attention from Jim and Tim Norris.  They have attended to our every detail.  The trailer is custom fitted to our needs and is absolutely “state of the art”.  Every part as well as the workmanship are the highest quality.  We recommend JIMGLO Trailers to those of you who appreciate quality and value.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for reinstilling my confidence in the quality of the American workforce and it’s products. The JIMGLO Enclosed Car Trailer with all the bells and whistles exceeds my expectations. From the thoughtful design to the careful welds to the choice of materials the vehicle is the tops. This rig tows magnificently and the significant weight loss as a result of the composite and aluminum construction is evidenced by the ease of pulling. Living in an area where salt is a major wintertime issue I’m sure the that the composite walls and alloy chassis will serve to keep it looking new for years to come. As an aside, doing business with you and your family was a pleasure. Again thanks for keeping the American dream going.

9407031Ever since I bought my GT, I have found occasional need to transport it in my Haulmark trailer. The pain in the rump has been the fact that you can’t open the doors wide enough to get out of the car once it’s inside. Thus, unless one were to crawl out of the open window (very bad form) one cannot drive into the trailer, but must instead pull it in by the nose ring with a winch.

I was minding my own business at the Barrett-Jackson auction, when I was assaulted by a sudden urge to buy a new trailer…I, of course, have no relation to the company except that I am a customer. Similar to a Trailex, except much beefier. The quality is impeccable. It is all aluminum, with one piece composite walls, floor and roof. GT door easily clears the tires, once the wheel well is removed (spin off two wing nuts and its off).

Pulls like a dream. Not cheap, however…made by a company called JIMGLO. Revered among the super high end hot rod crowd. Very small company with a very loyal following. The workmanship is off the chart. Walls are over an inch thick and super smooth and glossy.

6568334I’ve owned a Jim-Glo tilt-bed auto trailer for years (my good friend owns an older version of the same trailer). I like it tremendously….it’s well made, lightweight, wide enough for a Corvette, you don’t need ramps and it pulls like a dream. I opted for the tall utility box on the front which acts as a protective screen for the car. The trailer isn’t cheap to begin with and I think some of Jim-Glo’s options are extremely over-priced. Fortunately, things like the winch (if you want one) isn’t hard to add yourself. Just order the winch stand from Jim-Glo but get the winch yourself elsewhere (FWIW I’ve never needed the winch). I see all kinds of trailers at the track…..FeatherLite makes a nice single auto trailer but I like the Jim-Glo tilt-bed trailer better! I’m happy with mine.

If you are planning to keep this trailer a long time, you owe it to yourself to consider a JIMGLO Trailer. Check them out at I had a JIMGLO Tilt Bed open trailer for about 5 years and recently purchased an enclosed JIMGLO. Having used several different brands of trailers over the past 30+ years, the JIMGLO’s (IMHO) are the best engineered and built trailers on the market. They tow great, are very easy to load with a low car, look great, and are more aerodynamic than most others. You can even drive your car in and open the driver’s door all the way to get out of the car (try that with some of the other brands of trailers).

BTW, I have no affiliation, just a satisfied customer. Give them a call, you will find they are very down to earth, honest, straight-forward people to deal with.

If you do get an open trailer, it won’t be long before you start looking for an enclosed one. If you go anywhere overnight, you will want the security of the enclosed trailer.

Check out JIMGLO Trailers from Jim Norris in AZ – Rolls Royce of trailers. Available open or closed, with almost half the side of the enclosed which opens up. Removable fenders too. They almost never come up for sale used – what does that tell you?


I agree with Weasel, I’ve got a JIMGLO Trailer, it’s the 4th trailer I’ve owned, and it’ll be the last I’ll ever need. I love the tilt bed! no ramps to fool with, easy to load and unload. Both fenders are removable. I’ve got a winch to pull up the non-ops, and unload anything. I haven’t had anything on it yet that I can’t open the door on (some had to take fender off).  I found mine used, but looked a llooooooonnnnggggg time to find it. You just don’t see many people getting rid of them, and I agree, it’s because they are great.
I didn’t care for the “surge” brakes, I switched over to all electric. Unlike others, I check my tire pressure before any trip, and haven’t blown a tire yet (but will someday). JIMGLO is out of Willcox, AZ.

I have a JIMGLO Trailer 2005, 20′ enclosed. gull wing door on left side with removable fender for easy exit of car, and low to the ground. they are erodynamic electric winch door and door in front for tie downs. Its lined on the insideand has all aluminum diamond plate floor. Very nice trailers. I will be buying another one once I sell the one I have. Need one much taller now because have a cabover p/u to put in it. They are lightwieght and easy tow. If you haven’t seen on go on jimglo’s website. Good luck.

594345I’m very happy with my Jim-Glo auto tilt-bed trailer (made in Willcox, Arizona). I sometimes put a couple 2 x 10’s under the end ‘ramps’ for good measure but they’re not essential (at least for me). They’re not inexpensive trailers but they’re lightweight, well made, functional and they pull well.
