Why Trailmaster Vanguard

Why Trailmaster and Vanguard?

“Your need is to have a trailer you can depend on. One that is easy to use, treats your boat well and never fails to perform for you.” — Quinn Kreiger, Founder


J.Q Tex, Inc. has over 37 years experience building custom boat trailers. They have the hull patterns for all major boat manufacturers which ensure the trailer fits like a glove. Over 200 independent dealers along with numerous nationally recognized boat builders are certified to sell and service their full line of products.


Only the highest grade materials are incorporated into these rugged trailers. Cheap or inferior components are simply not used. Trailer frames are fully sandblasted to remove all contamination before 2 coats of automotive grade urethane primer and custom matched color topcoat are applied. The custom fit and superior finish are second to none.


All TRAILMASTER and VANGUARD models are fully welded for strength and reliability. Many original 1980’s models are still in service today providing dependable transportation to and from the water.


They were the first manufacturer to offer both “C” channel and box tube construction. They led the industry as the first to install radial tires and disc brakes as standard equipment on their premium trailers. Custom colors and co-coordinated graphics enhance the premium appearance.


TRAILMASTER and VANGUARD trailers are all certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association. This certification assures that they meet or exceed all applicable quality and safety standards established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). They are simply the BEST CHOICE for the money.
