FULLENKAMP’S FRENCHTOWN TRAILER SALES & SUPPLY CO. Frenchtown Trailer Sales & Supply Co. started as a small business in 1993 at the home of owners, Frank and Karen Fullenkamp. The family-owned business continued to grow which forced the dealership to move down the road from the Fullenkamps’ home in Versailles, Ohio. Today, the dealership has around 200 new and used trailers on their lot. Fullenkamp’s Frenchtown Trailer Sales & Supply Co. sells a full line of trailers and keeps complete line of trailer parts in stock such as running boards, bug shields, bed covers, bed mats and more. The dealership has a full service repair and fabrication department which offers many services including hitch installations, brake controllers, tires, electrical work and specialty services (like painting and sandblasting). Fullenkamp’s Frenchtown Trailer Sales & Supply Co. has been a member of NATDA since 2008. Frank recalls meeting with Andy Ackerman, President of NATDA, at Waymire Distribution in Indianapolis in 2008. “Andy said he was starting a new association for trailer dealers and stated it would be beneficial for me to join. We talked for an hour or so and at the end, I said, ‘sign me up!’ We have been members ever since,” stated Frank. During the conversation they discussed member benefits and how Ackerman planned to help dealerships through NATDA. Frank believes his membership and attendance at the annual NATDA trade show & convention are an asset to his dealership. He is truly grateful for the opportunity to see new products and loves bringing them home to share with his customers.
