BC Distributor Expands into Western Ontario


Marlon Recreational Products, Chilliwack, BC, has expanded its territory with Karavan Trailers from Western Canada into select regions of Western Ontario. Due to the expansion Marlon is now representing Karavan on a national level – from Sault Ste. Marie, ON to Vancouver Island.

Karavan Trailers, Fox Lake, WI, manufacturers a long line of commercial and recreational trailers for original equipment, recreational boats, watercraft, utility, and snowmobiles.

According to Bruce Cameron, president of Marlon Recreational Products, the expansion follows the decision of the company to increase its sales and expand its dealer base in Canada.

“We are expanding our market,” says Cameron. “This is an effort to grow our dealer base [with Karavan Trailers] and expand our sales with Karavan. We have hired two sales representatives, Ian Cummer and Kim Vokey in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Karavan thought it would be best if Marlon looked after the territory into Western Ontario, from Sault Ste. Marie – west.”

In addition to being a distributor for a wide range of trailers (as well as trailer parts and accessories) for utility, recreational boats, personal watercrafts, ATVs and snowmobiles, Marlon is currently an agent for Princecraft Boats, MirroCraft and MotorGuide. Marlon is also the Canadian representative for Caribe, Flexboat, and Kaiyan inflatables, plus a series of pontoon boats including Palm Beach Marine and Weeres Pontoon Boats.
