CAD Trailer Designs (CAD TD) started as an idea between the founder, Russell Davis and his father ten years ago while down in Fort Myers Florida with a trailer dilemma: “How to store a custom motorcycle and a trailer in limited garage space”. Florida, like many urban and suburban communities, does not allow trailers to be stored outside in residential zoned areas, a familiar situation to most areas throughout the United States. Through many fabricating efforts, Russ achieved a patented trailer that folds 3 times for easy storage. Andrew Cannon and Joe McKeever having been corporate executives for years in the utility trailer industry realized the importance of these innovations. A couple of years later, Russ invited us to join CAD TD and presently are excited in supporting the newly launching operations.
CAD TD’s vision is to produce unique trailer products for people on the go with products that are ‘right sized’ to their lifestyle, both nationally and internationally. Transportation needs have a similar base need of utility, durability and compact storage. CAD TD determines to be this company in various trailer models.
CAD TD will utilize the founder’s triple-patented design to launch a start-up company that is truly “made in America”. The focus is for the start-up company to leverage a great design, create significant accessories and expand the product types through the first 5 years of operation. Our first 2-year strategy is to develop a key supplier of steel frames with an existing manufacturing facility that provides for easy ramp-up and quick product delivery.
The trailer models will be introduced as a standard offering ‘ready to tow’. Main product segments in the NA towing space includes ‘on road’ utilization for expanded cargo space for compact crossover/SUV and Small Pick-up owners with various packaged goods or materials, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, small boats or building supplies to name a few items. A sub-segment that is ever expanding is the NA off road market space including outdoor activities like boating (kayaking, canoeing), camping, fishing, hunting, and family excursions. The products from CAD TD are a perfect fit for these activities and present a ready-made foundation for accessories to support these activities. Long-term plans include accessories to support these activities utilizing the unique CAD TD products!
The initial product line provided will include 9 base trailer models with a standard 4’, 5’ and 6’ wide models that are of the same 9’ length. These models have several features including the ability to fold up into a very small package, able to lower the loading surface (deck) for ease of loading various items like full size touring motorcycles. These models are the foundation of a much larger sub-segment in the North American marketplace such as cargo, recreational and private commercial segments.
The initial $250,000 will be key to complete the DOT registration and certification of the trailer along with establishing the first State’s registration as a manufacturer and Dealer/Distributor so that we may engage the Dealer networks. There is also hard tooling assets for welding, painting and assembly that need to be designed and purchased to support high volume production. The initial marketing campaign will use this seed money to create brand recognition. Through the year, additional investment input from our Nvsted campaign will broaden our needed market penetration.
The first two years of operation will be dedicated to Dealer expansion, brand recognition marketing campaigns, volume ramp up and development of multiple accessories, while the third and fourth year are focused on international expansion and a wholly-owned manufacturing facility. The following few years will demonstrate CAD TD Inc.'s significant business value for a timely divestment of the well-running business. By our projections, an exit after approximately 5 years of operations will return an estimated 10X to 20X for investors, including dividends. We based these projections on models currently used in the trailer industry.
