The Olson Story.
You could say that the wheels have been turning since the late 70’s in our family. In 1979, we reinvented the wheel with the original Rollerblade® Inline Skates in our parents’ basement. Since the inception of Rollerblade®, Brennan and I have dreamed about starting another company that would bring the same passion — and also offer a product that would have an equally positive impact.
In addition to experiencing the Rollerblade phenomenon, we were fortunate enough to own a lake home. On weekends, our parents would hook up the trailer to the F150 pickup, load us all up in the back with a mattress, boom box, two dogs and a sack lunch, and head northbound to our Minnesota cabin. Trips north are still a frequent occurrence with our families. Gone are the boom box, mattress and rickety tarp-covered trailer — today its iPods, seat belts and, of course, a SPACE™ Trailer.
LIVE AND LEARN
Our family has always shared a passion for the outdoors. It was during a weekend up north in the spring of 2009, when Brennan and I made a pact to purchase more fuel-efficient cars, knowing that space would be an issue. We agreed that kids, dogs and the gear we needed were not options to leave behind. So around the campfire, SPACE™ Trailers was born.
THE NEW SPACE AGE
Starting out as a lightweight trailer that fuel efficient cars could tow, SPACE™ Trailers has evolved into a class of its own. The “Swiss army knives” of trailers, SPACE can be transformed and customized into whatever you want it to be.
Similar to when my siblings and I mounted wheels on our hockey skates and hit the streets to introduce the public to inline skating — we are now hitting the streets with a “lightweight sport trailer” that we know will also turn some heads.
With big smiles, the wheels are still turning, especially for outdoor and travel fanatics like us.
