Who We Are.
The Freedom Hauler, previously Idaho Tote is a proven reliable product since 2007. Let me give you a little background into the creation of our product and how we arrived at our location today!
The original concept was brought to life by Greg Broemeling and his partner Vern Adams. Greg, after a camping trip, was reflected on his efforts from the weekends trip. Wanting to have the four-wheeler along for the ride, he towed two vehicles pulling the 5th wheel with one and the quad with the other. Why not put a tote to carry the four-wheeler on the back of the 5th wheel? Then only one vehicle is needed. With a background in steel fabrication and his best friend Vern a trailer builder, the Idaho Tote was born. After manufacturing and selling the Idaho Tote for 11 years out of Lewiston Idaho, Greg and Vern decided to retire to the great outdoors, now that they have the perfect traveling companion.
In June of 2018, Tru North Industries purchased the small business and moved it south to Marsing Idaho. With big dreams and a new business, they began formulating a plan to take this product into the 21st century. After setting up shop, they had orders to fill and a steep learning curve to get things done right. Once the season changed things slowed down and gave the Tru North staff time to brainstorm. It was decided that Freedom Hauler would be the name to begin this new adventure.
