Spartan Trailers

5 posts in this topic

I have a Spartan trailer that was made in 2002. I need a part for it and called the owners of the brand. (Tebben Enterprises in Clara City). The person in the "parts department was ZERO help. I tried to give him the model number. He said "we didn't make that traier" so I would need a picture. I asked him since they owned the brand aren't they bound to manufacture parts? His answer ws "Not if I dont want to". I will never deal with these folks again. Does anybody know a Spartan dealer where I can get a part from?

Tebbin acquired Spartan, so he may be right that they did not "make" that trailer. He very well may not have access to pull up that model number. He should, but if the records were not given, transferred into his parts inventory etc, it may very well be tough to get information on. He offered to help locate the part if you would send him a picture correct? It sounds like he is trying to help and obviously a picture could help him find or perhaps make a part for you if his parts inventory can't look it up based off a model number. And no, there is no obligation to manufacture parts for it. Send the guy a picture, it can't be that hard. You just might get the part you are looking for.

Can you clarify what part you're looking for? It might not be a spartan specific part to start with...

Ah heck, you just just got a hold of a guy who was feeling a little mischievous for many unknown reasons. Don't take it personal. If there dishing out spoiled raspberry's, offer them some honey. Call them back and try again. Make sure you know who you are talking to and if you feel as if you are getting your chain jerked ask for someone else and don't forget the honey.

Good Luck...

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
