Customer Spotlight: Meet the Nelsons!

We have long since known that our customers are the very best!  It is because of them that we continue to be here in this little town, doing what we do.  We are so excited to share our first customer spotlight today, and we are starting it off with one of our favorite families!  We are sure you will love them- they make it easy!  To top it off, Nicole is an amazing photographer, and we think you will swoon a little bit over her beautiful pictures (and want to head off on an adventure of your own!)  Enjoy!

We are the Nelsons!  Jason, Nicole, Gracie (12), and Hudson (10).  We are a busy family trying our very best to DO IT ALL!  We love our beautiful life and all of the adventures that come with it.  We love more than anything to be in the great outdoors.  We love to fly fish, hike, camp, and hunt.  And if we are not enjoying our time in nature you will find us on a baseball field.  Our trailer has played a HUGE role in making all of these more enjoyable.

Why did  you decide to invest in a trailer?  Is it something you have always done or is it new to your family?

Our decision to get a trailer really came about when we made the decision to make a 200 lb great dane a part of our life.  We wanted Max to be able to go on all of our adventures with us.  We started by renting a trailer from C&R.  We were completely sold on the trailer life our first trip out.  We went home from that trip and bought the same trailer we had rented.  This was the beginning of many, many days and nights in the trailer!

How has it changed the way your family spends time together?

Since that first trip we have taken our trailer for camping, hunting, and baseball trips.  We joke that we spend more nights in the trailer during the summer than we do in our home.  We have made so many wonderful memories!

Our trailer really allows us to do so much more than we could do otherwise.  We love that our trailer is stocked and ready to roll out on a moments notice.  We would never be able to afford hotel rooms for all of the time and places we have gone.  I know that if we did not have it, we would not have all the memories that we do!

Where are your favorite places to take your trailer?

Our biggest trip of the year is going to Island Park in July of each year for almost two full weeks.  We look forward to it all  year long.  Last year we took the trailer to Dylan, Montana and the kids found a new love for mining crystals at Crystal Park.  We have been taking the trailer to baseball tournaments and absolutely love it.  There is just something about pulling your home and your own things along with you.  It has made life so much more convenient than staying in hotels.  In the fall our trailer follows us on hunting adventures.  We love that it allows all of us to be together no matter where we are staying.

Can you share a favorite family memory while using your trailer?

Among our many, many memories, some of our favorites are these: snuggling in together at nights after a long day of playing, card games at the kitchen table, cooking delicious meals together as a family, trailer naps, movies, and (of course!) stringing little white lights from the trailer all around the camp to give our home away from home the perfect touch!  Our little trailer has watched our babies grow.  It has heard laughter and felt lots of love.  It is one of the best decisions we have made for our family.  Many family traditions have evolved because of our trailer.

How was your experience with C&R?

We have been nothing but pleased with our experience through C&R!  They have gone above and beyond to make sure our trailer experience has been amazing.  They have been more than willing to spend lots of time explaining things and educating us on the do’s and don’ts of owning a trailer.  I remember one time in particular that Ronnie took a call from us after hours to help us get our freezer running.  I see our family owning a trailer for a very, very long time and I know we will continue to do business with C&R!

A huge thank you to the Nelson family for letting us have a little peak into your family memory making!  (We couldn’t help but include all of her beautiful photographs and wish we could take her and her camera along with us on all of our family outings!)  Along with her pictures, we loved Nicole’s explanation of the their experiences, “Our little trailer has watched our babies grow.  It has heard laughter and felt lots of love.  It is one of the best decisions we have made for our family..I know that if we did not have it, we would not have all the memories that we do!”


Here’s to making memories!  Are you a happy customer of C&R and would like to share your experience?  We are looking for more families to spotlight and would love to hear your story!  As a thank you to the Nelsons and all of our spotlight families, we will be giving a $50 gift card that can be used toward any parts or services at C&R. 

If you are interested in being spotlighted, email  I can’t wait to meet you!
