Aliner Launches Two New Breast Cancer Awareness Designs

Tue Aug 30, 2016

147256778892775.jpgAliner has announced two new breast cancer designs for the Scout-Lite and Ranger 10 camping trailers and will donate a portion of all proceeds to breast cancer research. This launch comes just weeks before breast cancer awareness month.

The designs were initially inspired by Aliner's president and chief executive officer Brett Randall's close personal experiences with breast cancer. As the concept was nurtured in-house it became prevalent that breast cancer has touched many of the Aliner team members and their families.

"We are very honored to introduce these two special units. We feel a strong connection to all of those who have been impacted by breast cancer," said Randall. "We are proud of the opportunity to provide our loyal followers a product that may touch them as well."
The team members of Aliner worked for months with multiple concepts and chose these two pink and white designs which they felt represent both Aliner's brand and breast cancer awareness.

The breast cancer awareness camping trailers can now be ordered via a local Aliner dealer.
Columbia Northwest, Inc., d.b.a Aliner, is a producer of folding trailers. Founded in 1984 with a focus on lightweight towable camping trailers, today Aliner is a leader in the pop-up RV marketplace. Aliner is the original manufacturer of the A-frame camper.
