SPACE Trailers Expands Under New Ownership

Red Wing, MN. SPACE Trailers are lightweight, customizable sport trailers. Our SPACE Trailers combine the versatility of a utility trailer with the pack-up-and-go of a small cargo trailer. The tough but lightweight enclosed adventure trailer lets you bring everything you want, not just what you need. SPACE Trailers, made and manufactured in Red Wing, Minnesota, were developed through firsthand experience and research.

“We are proud to call ourselves the new owners of this powerful brand and proud to be partnered with an amazing network of passionate customers,” said Rich Bodensteiner, co-owner of SPACE Trailers. He and business partner Chris Shimek recently purchased the company in 2021. “The two of us grew up in the woods, and on the waters of the upper Midwest. We are passionate outdoorsmen and are excited to expand this brand in an industry we love” said Shimek.

As a team, we believe that spending time outdoors allows us to reconnect and focus on personal growth and self-development. SPACE Trailers is reflective of our everyday lifestyle and values. The company core values were built upon this foundation—positive attitude, individual accountability, action-oriented, continuous improvement and putting our customers first! “With these core values as our foundation, our promise to our customers and partners is this: We are investing in our business and building our team to fuel a powerful new brand, provide passionate customer support and deliver highly engaging content” said Chris Shimek, co-owner. Shimek continued, “We are excited for this new beginning and hope you are too!”

The compact, adventure trailers are perfect for any outdoor enthusiast. All SPACE Trailers are proudly made in the USA and every SPACE Trailer is built to each customer’s specific order. We provide a range of accessory options to choose from to customize your trailer. We take pride in our small production team building each trailer for our excited customers. SPACE Trailers weigh 600 lb. and have a load carrying capacity of 1650 lb. They are extremely lightweight and are easy to move. If short on garage space, they also store vertically.

Our goal is to get our community outside by providing sustainable, high-quality, customizable trailers. We know that life is better lived outside, and we are dedicated to delivering innovative sport trailers to live your adventures, build your community, and experience life outdoors. Whether you’re hauling kayaks, bikes, rooftop tents, hunting gear or the weekend project, our SPACE Trailers are up to the challenge.
