Tune in to see Rifle business featured on Discovery Channel’s ‘Fast ‘N Loud’

Not many Rifle businesses can say the products or services they provide have been featured on a TV show.
On Monday, Sept. 9, Western Slope Trailer Sales & RV Center, 3150 Airport Road, can say they were. The company, or more specifically, a trailer they had built for an episode of Discovery Channel’s top-rated show, “Fast N’ Loud,” will be featured that night at 7 p.m.
In each episode of Fast N’ Loud, according to the show’s website, Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman search the far flung corners of Texas and surrounding states for forgotten and derelict classic cars to buy and restore at their Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas.
Western Slope Trailer Sales & RV Center owner Nate Robinson said he emailed the show’s producers a few times and they agreed to let his company provide a trailer they can use to load and haul the old vehicles they remodel.
“So we had a trailer built by the manufacturer we work with, P.J. Trailers in Sumner, Texas,” Robinson said. “They liked that, since they’re in Texas, too.”
Robinson and his service manager, Gryphon Garlitz, took the trailer to Texas and had their 15 minutes of fame filmed for the show. While the Discovery Channel does not allow those featured in their shows to disclose too many details until that particular show airs, Robinson said his company will be allowed to sell trailers modeled after the one built for the show.
Robinson said the Discovery Channel did allow him to post the day and time of the upcoming show on Facebook, send out email blasts and contact local news media.
“They don’t want any spoilers and were adamant about not talking about the details of the trailer,” Robinson said.
He did share there are some unique parts to the trailer, and that it took some computer-generated images emailed back and forth with the show’s producers to arrive at a design.
“Once we knew what they wanted, it didn’t take long to build,” Robinson said.
He described the trailer as suitable for general hauling purposes, and the show will likely use the trailer in every future episode.
