In the summer of 1971, Bernie Vlahakis was the Houston-based distributor for a national muffler manufacturer. His customer base grew to the point that he needed a trailer to haul all the mufflers he sold.
After an exhaustive search, Bernie purchased a trailer directly from a manufacturer. On each of his customer visits, the clients were more interested in his new trailer than the mufflers they had purchased. Ever the entrepreneur, Bernie sensed a void in a growing market, and – with the simple goal of selling quality trailers and trailer parts to his neighbors at a fair price – Trailer Wheel & Frame was born.
Now, after 50 years in business, Trailer Wheel & Frame is the largest trailer retailer in Texas because our goal is simple – to make Trailer Wheel & Frame the kind of place we would want to shop.
