This story was printed in the Mid-Atlantic Camper. Its about the start of Pennsauken Trailer Sales and how we became one of the largest and most respected Park Model Distributers in the Delaware Valley. Here the story:
With little more than a box of carpenters tools and a great deal of hope for the future, Jim Swanson and his new bride Olga, left their homeland of England and Wales for a new life in America. The year was 1952. Jim was a resident of Yorkshire, England and Olga resided in Glamorganshire, Wales, prior to their marriage. The young couple boarded the Queen Elizabeth I intent on settling down and raising a family in the states. Pennsauken, NJ is where they first settled and it’s here they have stayed. In 1975 Jim and Olga, with their sons, Jim and John, began yet a new venture. This was the year of the birth of Pennsauken Trailer Sales, which the Swanson family has nurtured into one of the area’s largest dealerships, specializing in Park Model trailers. If this sounds like the all too often heard of success story – well it is. A success story backed by the years of hard work and determination. Pennsauken Trailer Sales specializes in Park Models built by Forest River and Chariot Eagle. The floor plans and sizes come in a wide selection. Something to suite any taste. Some models have as much as 400 sq. ft. of living space; and, yes, these are completely legal in all NJ campgrounds and condo or lease type sites. In fact, Pennsauken Trailer Sales is the area’s leading supplier of Park Models to South Jersey Condo campsites. Pennsauken Trailers Sales is located on Route 70 in Pennsauken, NJ., 1/2 mile east of Route 130. They are your Park Model headquarters, prepared to meet your every need in Park Model camping.
