Classic Trailers believes in the ‘no pressure’ approach when it comes to dealing with customers.
“We don’t have an on-site business manager," Classic's Jeff Pinnell says. "We find it a little easier. It’s less pressure. You’re not being ‘put in the box’ – that kind of idea. We feel that people are more comfortable, which is very important to us. We let them take time to look around and find what fits their family’s needs.”
It’s that type of salesmanship that has made Classic Trailers a leader in the RV industry in Manitoba. After recent success in Headingley and seasonally in Grand Beach, the company has made its way to the Wheat City. It opened its doors officially last July with an impressive 10,000 square-foot indoor showroom, which can fit up to eight trailers at one time.
