Our Service / Repair Department: GT Services is more than just a trailer restoration shop. We try to keep some time and space available in our schedules so those of you Montanans that just need some repair work done can get in! We service and repair both vintage and new Airstream trailers, and all other brands. We offer a personalized service experience for our clients. At GT Services, you are not just a name and number. When you bring us your trailer for a service or repair issue, will be able to speak with owner Glenn or shop foreman Aaron, and know that your problem is in the hands of an expert. We believe in giving our clients the highest level of customer service!
We Are Airstream Axle Specialists: Most Airstream owners know that the best way to get new axles for your vintage or newer model trailer is to have a company like GT Services, who has specified, ordered, and installed Dexter Axles for their client trailers for years, specify, order and install the correct axle(s) for your trailer. Here’s where the difficulty in ordering axles for Airstreams, especially Vintage Airstreams is: vintage Airstream original axles were not made by Dexter. To properly cross old to new, detailed measurements of the original axle must be taken and transferred to the new Dexter axle specification sheet. Dexter axles are not normally supplied with shock absorber mounts either. Some inexperienced shops may tell you that shock absorbers are not necessary on your Airstream. We know better; the shocks provide great benefits to the trailer chassis and shell in the form of a smoother ride. We have the knowledge and experience to order your new axles with the correct shock mounts! Specifying and ordering axles is a routine job for us, but to the average person it can be a disaster if the wrong axle is specified.
GT Services specifies, orders and install Dexter Axles because Dexter is the company that now supplies all new Airstream axles. Each axle is custom made for the client based on the specifications that we give to Dexter.
Frame off Restoration / Modernization: Complete frame off restoration / modernization services are available. On many projects as required, we will remove the trailer shell and recondition the frame. The benefits are many, including a healthier living environment and a great improvement in the trailer smell! This occurs by removal of mold, old insulation, rotten plywood sub flooring and rodent droppings. There are many other benefits to removing the shell from the frame. Often times on older trailers we find frame damage, cracked and broken welds, excessive rust, and rust damaged cross members and outriggers that we would not have otherwise detected. Other benefits include the fact that it is much easier to retrofit gray water tank(s) and install new black water tanks into vintage trailers with the shell and sub flooring removed.
Airstream Holding Tank Retrofits: We do the tough stuff! Airstream and other vintage trailers manufactured prior to 1974 did not have gray water tanks installed. We have the skills and knowledge to properly retrofit your vintage Airstream or for that matter ANY brand of trailer with new gray water or black water tanks.
