"OMG! Yes!! Perfect !!!" 

Samantha A GA

"Thank you for making smiles and dreams come true!!"

Tina B FL

"Thank you! I've been in one of your trailers since 2018 with the first one being a 6x8 and now a 6x10.  They're the best for the money especially.  I've only had minimal things needing repair and they were normal for a trailer running every day.  They are easily fixed which is what I love so I can keep working with almost no down time. Your trailers are definitely lil money makers!  Thank you, thank you again!"

Brenda D TX

"Hey There!!! Just touching base with you, wanna let you know so far so great! Trailer is great and we are booked out 3 weeks and growing! Looking forward to adding another trailer sooner rather than later.  Thanks again for everything"!

Scott M AZ

"I own 5 Gryphon Trailers and 1 Gryphon Bus as well as 1 homemade van conversion and 1 WNT.  I can tell you 100% in my experience they are great and a great value.  For the record I hate our homemade conversion.  We bought it already done from another groomer.  The WNT has all the bells and whistles but its overkill to me and expensive to recoup the investment and lots of unnecessary stuff. The Gryphons are fully equipped and very functional.  We have 8 units running weekly."

Ashley M TX

"We bought a 2011 Gryphon 12' grooming trailer for our daughter to start her own business.  First off business is better than we ever thought it would be! In the 6 months she has been running this trailer she almost has the trailer paid off.  I am very pleased with the build and the quality of this trailer.  She has already asked to upgrade and expand to another trailer and a bigger trailer.  If this keeps up we will be adding plenty of more!"

Bill M CO

"This is my first trailer and everything looks great!  I'm very happy with it

 I read all the information and instructions with it.  It was very helpful!"

Sara B IL

"Thank you for helping my dreams come true. I appreciate you."

Tina H ID  

"Hello, wanted to let you know I got my trailer and LOVE it!  You did an amazing job and I especially love the pictured instructions.  I know I ordered at the worst time, but I actually love the white instead of the black.  Thank you so much!  I can't wait to try it out tomorrow with my standard poodle Pixie!"

Lola L OH

"Thank you for the awesome trailer!  I am so happy about everything with it.  My brother, who is a stickler, was very impressed with everything!  The graphics people were super impressed with the trailer as well.  You are really making a splash out here!  Thank you again for everything you did to get us our Grooming Salon"  Anne T CA

"Thank you very much for the information!  Over the Llast 4 years you have always answered my questions and alswyas so quickly.  Thank you for your wonderful customer service!" Kim S NC

"I brag to everyone I meet and converse with about you and your trailers.  I do feel truly blessed with my rig.  Than you for building such a safe space for me to do what I love!" Terra A CA

"I want to thank you for helping me get started in the Mobile way.  I am enjoying getting to know my rig.  I I am enjoying my independence.  I want to thank you for your patience with all my questions and concerns.  Its been a whirlwind in getting everything ready and grooming too.

Gracie G GA

"Nice!! Thank you for all your patience, I know we've talked back and forth for over a year now, I just knew once I saw your trailers I wouldn't settle for anything else!!" Nikki C NV

"We've had other grooming trailers priced higher and not as great of quality as Joe has made for us. It really does take a groomer to make a perfect grooming trailer.  He has a knack for each detail and the inside is laid out perfect for any size pet.  We specialize in cats and the setup is purrfect for what we do. We will buy another from Joe as the business grows. 

Thanks for the professionalism!" Reginald G SC

"Joe was very professional the whole process of buying and making my trailer.  He answered questions whenever I had one.  My trailer came to me beautifully built. 

Thank you Gryphon!" Sunny O AZ

"Joe is Awesome !!!!!!  Best thing I ever did was going to Joe."

Charles B OK

"I recently purchased a trailer from Gryphon Trailers for my mobile business and I absolutely love it! It has everything I need and it is the perfect size for me! They had great customer service and delivered it to me in MN which was very convenient for me. My Customers love it and I would definitely recommend them if you are looking to buy a mobile dog grooming trailer. :)"

Keisha B MN

"I just wanted to thank you again.  Your and your crew did a very good job.  I'm loving my trailer"  Mariana L TX

"Hey, I have my groomer up and running!  Everything is working great." 

Billy H UT 


"I'm really happy to have something to be happy about again.  Thank you!"

Rhonda B MN

"Hi Joe. We wanted to let you know that we still speak often as to how fortunate we were to find you when our old trailer bit the dust.  We continue to be very happy with what you provided us.  We hope and pray that this year will be another great one for you and your business.  Thank you again so very much!"

Bill & Shelley D TX

As with any apparatus in which heat, vapors or gas are created there always exists the potential for fire, hazard or carbon monoxide.  Please verify all machine parts are being handled/used and operated in the manner instructed to decrease any possible hazards that might be created due to user error or negligence. Of the 2000+ conversions we have produced to date, not one has caught fire or burned because of manufacturer defects


Our Trailers

Single axle trailers have a 5,200 lb. rated axle and the trailer with conversion weighs under 3,500 lbs with water and all.

Dual axle trailers have 7,000 lb. rating and the largest weighs in under 4,500 lbs.


Weight distribution

Our trailers are designed and built to distribute weight from front to back as well as side to side. We do that with the tongue weight in front bearing the generator and water towards the back and then with vertical tanks that distribute half the water to each side and over the axles. That creates the steadiest possible conversion possible


All our units use Dexter Axles which is the largest manufacturer of axles for US built trailers.  Dexter has several manufacturer warranties that come standard on their axles. They range from 1, 3, 5 or 7 years depending on the component and ensures it is free of defects

What is not covered 

User error.  This usually occurs when a trailer goes over or hits a curb rounding a corner or falls into a ditch or pot hole in or on the road.  (of course no one ever does that!) That can cause an axle to bend and that in turn can cause tire wear.  Dexter can initially warranty the axle but when it is returned to them they can tell if it has been caused by user error and then they get  billed for the replacement axle

RV and Trailer Repair Companies

They may try to tell you that the conversion is to blame but in our experience to date they are generally clueless and lazy and not inclined to do the proper or required work as well as being known to overcharge or inflate estimates for most repairs.

Power sources (Generartor &/or Shore Power) need to be powerful enough to do the job.  If you run a roof AC's you probably don't have enough power to run the dryer unless you have 30 amps available. Most Mobile Groomers find it frustrating when they trip their client's circuit breakers when running land line.  If you don't mind grooming in summer with the AC off then roof mount AC's will do.  They are also much more expensive to use and replace and the least  efficient on the market.  That is why we offer Roof AC's as an upgrade but recommend you get a generator powerful enough to run it all if that is your preference.   

Window style units run with Energy Star efficiency (RV roof AC 9200 Watt needs 12+ Amps; But a 6000 watt Living Room size wall style only uses 5.4 amps) leaving plenty of electricity available to run a dryer. 

You should also wonder why they want you using inefficient electric heat.  If you run a Shore Power or an undersized generator you need 14+ Amps to run an electric heater.  So if you don't mind grooming in the winter with the heat off while you use the blow dryer then electric heat only is one way to go. 

Standard in our trailers is the latest RV Catalytic Heaters for heating the grooming space.  Every RV and camper uses safe, efficient catalytic propane heating.  That removes the drain on electricity usage.  There is no recorded event of a propane tank used like this of being unsafe anywhere in America.  

We give you Two 20 lb. bbq size tanks standard.  They work one at a time to safely heat your groom space.  When one is empty the other is ready to go.  Tanks are easily and affordably swapped at every Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart and at many garden centers, hardware stores, lumber yards and many, many gas stations as well.  Propane is readily available and a more efficient source for heat than gasoline powering a generator to provide electricity for inefficient electric heat.  

The trailers are built to distribute all the weight.  From front to back the elongated tongue and generator box with generator ensure plenty of tongue weight and our mechanical room with the water balance it off in the rear. The water is seperated to both sides and over the wheels by using vertical tanks. The trailer's frame and axles are rated for 7000 GVWR and the finished trailer comes in weighing under 4,000 lbs.(6x12)



We don't do any financing ourselves but we are always looking to provide you with some great options to help you find credit.

We also don't lease our units or are associated with any company that does.  

Outside financing is an agreement made by those customers and the financing source they choose to work with. 

According to Entrepreneur Magazine 80% of start ups are funded by the owner with 17% getting some funds from one of the 3F's (family, friends and fools)

Imagine Yourself:

Earning a real living wage and helping your family earn more than the average US family

You can when you become a Mobile Groomer!


Mobile Pet Groomers average $65 per groom*

If you groom 7 Dogs per day over 5 Days per week (an average amount of business) you will gross over $100,000


Buy yourself an income and earn a real living wage

Join the thousands who sought job security by working for themselves in an all cash business.


Don't buy an expensive Van or an over engineered trailer that is so expensive that it drains your business's Cash Flow. 

Would you rather groom 5 dogs per month to make a trailer payment or 36(or more) to pay for a fancy van before you earn $1 for yourself?

Spray or roll on flooring is not recommended due to the natural movement in a trailer shell that will cause bubbling and separation from the Subfloor

Professionals realize that routine maintenance and repair is normal on any equipment. We are here to help  you avoid unnecessary and easily resolvable issues with our mobile salons.  Our trailers are well built and require minimal repairs and maintenance to provide you with years and years of successful use and service.

It isn't possible for the floor of our trilers to rot through.  We have a 25 year warranty on the subfloor of our trailers from the manufacturer. Please contact us at any time if you notice a leaking issue. We are here to help as well as answer questions.  Don't ever let a simple problem turn into a major issue by not addressing a small item when it occurs or when you notice it.

Full 2 year Limited Warranty on all New Trailers!

We offer lifetime warranty on the cabinets from rot

 20 year coverage from United Expressline on the Subfloor
