About Towmaster


For over 40 years, Towmaster has engineered equipment trailers that are easy to use, safe, and designed to last through years of rigorous use.

We offer America’s best-built trailers, that are trusted by municipalities, construction workers, fleet drivers, and landscapers across the country.

By engineering customizable options, we ensure our customers have the trailer design they need to work safely, efficiently, and for years to come.

Our History

Towmaster started back in the early 1970’s by Harlan Palm, then owner of Palm Industries. Harlan subsequently sold Palm Industries and created Palm Sales, with headquarters at his family farm. Customers he dealt with expressed a need for a quality trailer with a low deck height for moving skid-loaders and approached him to build them – and so the first Towmaster model was created to fill this need.

Over the years, Harlan began developing new lines of trailers as demand continued to grow, and also developed a line of skid loader attachments. In 1994, Towmaster split from Palm Industries and moved to Litchfield, MN into the old Palm Industries manufacturing building, which Harlan still owned at the time. The plant went through a huge makeover to bring in modern manufacturing equipment, allowing the production of the Towmaster trailers at a much larger scale.

Since that move, the Towmaster facility has gone through many changes and additions, including the addition of a 64,000 sq. ft. facility. This new building houses several trailer lines plus 3 paint booths and a finishing area. In 2008, Towmaster expanded its product offering by investing in the manufacturing and assembly of truck bodies and truck equipment.

In 2017, Towmaster was purchased by Monroe Truck Equipment. Our partnership has improved lead times, deepened market penetration, and positioned Towmaster to better serve our customers as a leader in the trailer and truck equipment industries.
