Columbia Northwest Inc., the original manufacturer of lightweight camping trailers, has announced the appointment of Little Guy Trailers in San Diego, Calif., as the exclusive retailer for their Aliner brand of hard-sided, A-Frame folding trailers in the San Diego area.
Located at 8170 Ronson Rd Suite O in San Diego, the dealership specializes in hard-to-find, compact, lightweight trailers, according to a news release.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Little Guy Trailers representing our products” Ned Collins, president of Columbia Northwest, stated in a news release. “The professional staff at Little Guy really understands the small trailer buyer. They know how to sell to this growing market, and they are known for taking care of their customers, which is exactly what we want in a retailer.”
According to Mark Hagen, president of Little Guy Trailers, “Aliner is really the right product for today’s fuel economy conscious camper. The typical Aliner weighs in around 1,500 pounds so it can be towed by a wide variety of passenger cars, small size SUVs and mini-vans. Our customers can use the vehicle they already own, instead of buying something that uses more fuel just to go camping. That’s really driving their purchasing decision.”
Aliners, legendary for their easy, 30-second set-up time and unique A-Frame shape, have been manufactured for over 26 years, but the product is experiencing tremendous sales growth as a new wave of eco-friendly, Baby Boomer consumers collide with 21st Century fuel prices. As Hagen from Little Guy Trailers puts it, “In the RV business, being light is not a niche anymore. Light-weight products are the fastest growing part of the business, and we expect Aliner to be a big part of that growth.”
