About Gold Rush

gr_dragster1     Gold Rush was founded in 1975 by Bill Schlott, a former drag racer and engineer. The first enclosed trailer was built in Bill's garage in response to the need for a protected trailer for his dragster, "Gold Rush," so named for the obvious reference to speed and quality, but also because Bill had always had an interest in the California Gold Rush.

     Driven by his foresight and with trailer designs and engineering plans in his head, Bill pressed ahead with the production of enclosed aluminum trailers. The business gradually outgrew 2, 3 and 4 bay garages as word of mouth advertising fueled production for an expanding customer base, which eventually included racers of dragsters, motorcycles, and powerboats. As always, the emphasis was on innovation and quality. Gold Rush became a well-known name in the industry.

     Today, Gold Rush occupies 69,000 sq. ft. of design and manufacturing space. Customers are encouraged to visit our Denver, PA facility. Our customers know that they are paying for quality, and our engineer and fabricators work closely with customers to satisfy their individual needs. Our engineering department employs SolidWorks 3D solid modeling and analysis software to create each trailer digitally before it is built in the factory. Customers receive drawings of their trailer layout to review and customize before their trailer is built.

     Gold Rush Inc has a market span of forty-eight states, twelve countries, and three continents.  Gold Rush trailers are known worldwide as the crème de la crème of aluminum trailers. This fact is supported by a resale value that is unmatched by any other trailer in production.

     In addition to manufacturing the Gold Rush Trailer, we are a full service facility, servicing and customizing all makes and models of trailers. We are also a dealer for Show Hauler and Chariot Motor and Toterhomes as well as Featherlite aluminum trailers and Interstate 1 steel frame trailers.
