Winnipeg Company Gives Vintage Trailers New Life

While the RV industry offers a wide range of modern recreational vehicles, one Winnipeg company is taking a different approach, breathing new life into vintage trailers through RV restoration. ReVolution Trailers, founded in 2019, specializes in restoring camper trailers of all ages, from the 1940s to the modern era.

ReVolution Trailers’ team of five employees works out of their shop on Springfield Road (Manitoba), where they take on the challenge of renovating trailers from various decades.

“We’ve worked on tiny little Bolers 10 feet long, we’re standing in a 46-foot-long travel trailer, we’ve worked on Class A motor coach buses, we’ve worked on boats, we’re building custom trailers so we run the gamut of the RV industry,” said Stu Pynoo, owner of ReVolution Trailers, in an interview with CTV News Winnipeg.

What started as a personal project for Pynoo and his wife has blossomed into a thriving business, attracting customers from across Canada and the United States.

ReVolution Trailers’ unique approach involves meticulous restoration, often salvaging trailers from neglect and disrepair.

“[P]eople are actually calling us up and saying, ‘Listen we’ve got this trailer, we don’t want to throw it in the dump, can we just bring it to you?’ and we gladly accept them all,” Pynoo told CTV News Winnipeg.

The company’s dedication to sustainability is evident in its efforts to recycle and reuse materials whenever possible. Maegan Clerihew, project manager at ReVolution Trailers, estimates they have saved “somewhere in the neighborhood of 350,000 to 400,000 pounds of RVs” from ending up in landfills.

ReVolution Trailers’ work goes beyond simply restoring functionality; they create unique and personalized spaces for their clients. 

Clerihew describes their design process as drawing inspiration from various sources, including home décor trends and the client’s vision. “The biggest compliment we can get is when somebody walks into one of our trailers and says this is nicer than my house,” she said.

With a growing customer base and a passion for preserving the history of RVs, ReVolution Trailers is carving out a unique niche in the industry. Their work demonstrates that vintage trailers can be more than just relics of the past; they can be transformed into stylish and functional spaces for modern-day adventures.
