ABOUT VINTAGE TRAILER COMPANY

Vintage Trailer Company (VTC) is a small team with a diverse background: construction, architecture, marketing, real estate. The one thing we have in common? When we see a vintage trailer, we can’t help but envision all the possibilities... 

VTC started when we realized we aren’t the only ones who love vintage trailers. There are tons of people who want to renovate, and most can’t do it themselves. We also saw that there are so few companies willing to do a renovation for under $100K.  Vintage Trailer saw this as a huge opportunity and decided to fill that market gap. We have had a robust pipeline of projects ever since and are hoping to grow our team to meet the growing demand.

Our projects include everything from modernizing vintage trailers with fixture upgrades and reconstruction of cabinetry, re-flooring, electrical/plumbing, and exterior work (i.e. polishing, body work, undercarriage maintenance) to full build-outs and remodels. Our client uses include a fun mix of private recreation, marketing & entertainment, food & beverage, and hospitality. Every project is 100% custom. 

We need someone who is self-motivated, takes pride in their work, and is excited to join a dynamic, rapidly growing company on the ground floor!
