Welcome to Rofran Transport!

Note:  We are currently "retired" and are no longer hauling, but thanks for your interest!

We're a Mom and Pop operation, retired and doing this in order to get out of our rocking chairs and off the porch! The photo above shows us with our 30-foot fifth wheel trailer, which is what we are hauling when we are on our own time.

We are based in Southern Utah and specialize in long- and short-distance hauling of trailers (horse and travel), fifth-wheel RVs, and boats. We drive a 2004 dually GMC pickup as our tow vehicle and we also make use of a 20-ft car-hauler trailer for transporting autos, motorcycles, or other collector vehicles.

And this is our new 26-foot enclosed trailer, to better serve those who want that "special auto" transported.

We will haul within state, or anywhere within the lower 48 States - from New York to California, from Florida to Washington, and anywhere in between. We carry $100,000 of cargo insurance and $1,000,000 of liability insurance, for the protection of our shippers. We deal with one shipper at a time, so great service is our primary goal.

Contact us for a competitive bid. We check e-mail daily, and phone messages daily when we are in town. If you leave a phone message and don't hear back from us within a day, send an e-mail - we are probably out making another shipper's (and soon-to-be new friend's) dream come true!

Thank You for your interest in Rofran Transport!

Robert and Frances

Pace snowmobile trailer – Cedar City, UT to Carter, MT

We picked up this new 26' Pace snowmobile trailer from Jolley's Trailer Sales in Cedar City, UT for delivery to Carter, MT. (If you want a great deal on a trailer check them out 435-867-1990, talk to Danny, he will save you money ... I know: I've bought 3 trailers from him myself.)

The couple we delivered it to were going to use it while moving to Alaska. They had made a deal with the Alaskan owner to deliver the trailer the rest of the way for free, as long as they could transport their belongings in the trailer, a sweet deal for both parties. From what they told me, its hard to find trailers in Alaska, so when people can find someone going up, they try to get them to transport a trailer.

32-ft Montana 5th Wheel

We picked up this 2003 Montana 5th wheel trailer from Swain's Creek, near Cedar Breaks, Utah, and hauled it to Cedar City for overwintering. This client is a repeat customer, as we deliver his trailer in the spring and pick it up in the fall every year so he and his wife can enjoy an easy getaway during the summers. A trailer is an economical alternative to building a cabin and having to winterize it at these higher altitudes.

1961 Impala – Reseda, CA to Commerce, MI

We picked up this 1961 Chevy Impala Convertible in Reseda, CA for delivery to the new owner in Commerce, MI. This is one fine car already, but the new owner is taking it one step further with plans on turning it into a "lowrider" show car. We will add follow up pictures to this web site when he has completed the transformation, so check back later!

Ragnar Events utility trailer

We transported this 44' trailer to Minnesota for a group that puts on
relay foot races, Ragnar Events.

We were involved in this tow for about three weeks, because we were also moving the trailer around at the race venue. It was a lot of fun, but that kind of racing is for much younger people than us. From start to finish, the race course covers 200 miles, all of that over a 24-hour period.

Fifth wheel - Redding, CA to Tacoma, WA

We transported this 38' Alfa Gold fifth wheel from Redding, CA to Tacoma, WA for a couple of full-timers who love to have the freedom to relocate when the urge strikes. Jim & Ann got rid of their own truck when moving their own home didn't feel safe anymore. Though not one of our longest transports, it was an enjoyable experience to deal with this couple and will remain right at the top of our list. We must add, though, it was not the most fun placing the unit in their new site .... a narrow road and short site designed for trailers of yesteryear - a very tight squeeze for a trailer this size.

SeaPro Boat - Suwanee, GA to Bellingham, WA

We picked this 25' Sea Pro boat in Suwanee, GA for a Canadian charter fishing company owner who took delivery in Bellingham, WA. This is the second Sea Pro boat we have hauled for this shipper. If you want to have a great fishing trip and catch the BIG ones check his company out, you won't be sorry.

1956 T-bird - Pasadena CA to Bend OR

We picked up this 1956 Ford Thunderbird, the result of a two-year restoration, in Pasadena, CA. The new owner in Bend, OR is not looking to hide this little beauty away - only bringing it out for shows - he will be driving it on a regular basis. Of course anywhere he stops will quickly turn into a show and tell. This car is a show all by itself. Check the picture of what's under the hood:
