Armadillo Trailers Blue on White Transpa

Armadillo Trailer Manufacturing is a family-run business.  Brothers, Mike and Jason Jong were born into the business following in the footsteps of their father, Allan. As a family, camping has helped define who they are and as outdoor enthusiasts, they also know the importance of quality time.  


Jason and Mike have always had a love for the classic, rounded small trailers and have been modifying, rebuilding and customizing these beautiful little units for years. Using experience and innovation, the hand crafted armadillo and more recently the BACKPACK trailers have and will inspire memories to fulfill a life of camping dreams.


Our armadillo model trailers are made from the very same production moulds that produced the legendary small trailers.  These moulds have been out of production in Canada for many years but have now been rescued, repaired, altered and improved.


Our BACKPACK model trailers are developed  from never-before-used vintage production moulds. 


Technology, fabrics, appliances and other components have all advanced significantly since these classic trailers were originally manufactured. We are keen to incorporate fresh ideas, concepts, ingenuity, modern techniques and materials. Stay tuned as we evolve!


Armadillo Trailers is located in the North Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada. Jason and Mike originate from the area and are very proud to contribute to the local economy and community. Our team is dedicated to build the best small recreational trailer. We are excited to bring these great classic trailers into the present while working with you on your own interests, style and ideas.


The sky is the limit.
