Angry Car Show in Colorado Springs, CO, to close

Hello all! This is Kate from The Car Show in beautiful Colorado Springs!

David and I heard about the discussions going on here and decided we ought to join in and let you all know what’s happening with us!

The Car Show is still open for business. Our decision to close has nothing to do with TrailManor Manufacturing. The factory is still building trailers and will no doubt seek to put another dealer in place after we retire.

As for the two of us, we have decided it is high time we stop working nearly all of our waking hours. We are not making this decision because we’re not doing well. Altho’ the last couple years have been rough for us personally, we’ve made it through and are looking forward to enjoying some time off, for a change. (And to taking some time to camp in our own TrailManor!)

Thank you all so very much for your support these many years. We’ve truly enjoyed our time serving you!

We wish you all the best and “happy camping!”

David & Kate

Hi Dave / Kate,

When is TCS closing? (effective immediately, or some date in the future)?

David and Kate...you have been the rock for all of us TM owners this side of the Pecos and we are sorry to see you go. Thank you so much for your service to all of us. I personally would like to see some photos and hear about all the modifications to your TM...I bet it's super. What model do you have?

So what will become of Will? I really liked him! He was a wealth of information when I needed answers.

Are you going to sell the business or just let it fade into obscurity? Although this is a sad story, I am very happy that you are retiring and will be able to relax and spend some time with your TM. I wish you all the very best of good fortune and NO blowouts EVER!
God Bless You Both and everyone at the Car Show
Tom

I called the Car Show today (was hoping to get a tune up done before they are done). The lady at the desk says their target date is August 1. One of the drivers of this date may be Will apparently. I was informed that Will was really doing this (working there) for his dad, and that his new career (something COMPLETELY different) starts on August 1.

I did try to speak with him, but was told that he was on the far end of the lot (working on a trailer).

Default The Car Show - shot in the dark

I know they went out of business 3 years ago but I have a really tough TrailManor VIN issue related to The Car Show in CO Springs (where we bought our new 3023 TrailManor back in 2001).

---Kate or Dave (I think it was Dave... could have remembered that wrong) - are either of you still on this forum? If so, could you please please post a reply or message me? I swear I wouldn't if this weren't the darnedest of issues..

--- Does anyone know... did the paperwork from The Car Show get transferred to anyone else? Anyone buy them out?

--- If anyone has had Colorado VIN issues with a TM from TCS and feels like chatting with me, please reply so I can contact you.

Right now I have a 3000lb paperweight (at least it's lightweight and can be towed like a feather!).

Thanks in advance for any help,

Marsha

I think a few years ago there was someone on this form that had a vin on the title that was slightly different than the vin on the camper. I think they discovered it when they were selling the camper.

Thank you both for the replies.

tentcamper, I was able to search on the forums for the Vin problem and will now pursue information on that thread. You have an incredible memory!
