Tribute to our inventors

Folding retractable axle trailer

Rene is definitely who you would call an inventor-entrepreneur. Being already familiar with the field of intellectual property, he conducted an Internet patent search from over 3,000 patents and, none covered all aspects of is structure. Very meticulous as a person can possibly be, he is currently putting as much time in preparing his demonstration prototype as he would be at the stage of the finished product Contrary to what most people think of inventor's, you don’t get up one morning with a vision of a new kind of trailer. He was already thinking a long time ago to engage in the commercialisation of a new domestic trailer. But to officially launch this adventure, he had to find the ideal model. He spent a lot of time looking at the models already on the market, but none met all his criteria that would allow him to offer the best product. One day driving in is car he noticed a rusty trailer parked behind a private house. He suddenly said this trailer does not belong there, and the rust was reducing considerably its market value. Near the trailer, there was a Bar-BQ, a pan, and underneath a cover. He then said this is it, the ideal would be that the trailer should fold, so all could be stored underneath a similar cover. It is then that the idea came to him to develop his own concept of a foldable domestic trailer. His first action was sleeping over it and to write down his criteria, light weight, robust and esthetics while providing good load capacity and a large volume during its use. And as another criteria to achieve and not the least, compact enough to be stored in the tempo shelter, side by side with the Bar-BQ stove. And as he says himself, these criteria were essential and left room for no compromises. Quite a challenge! He has met them all with flying colors, as you can see for yourself in the pictures below. Must say that the metal structures were no secret for him, he is an expert in training dent who has already won first prize in a competition for the best auto body repairman in automobile. He has left nothing to hazard throughout the development of his trailer. Even the painting was the subject of careful study, another area where René is also expert. He chose a powder paint based on zinc, the best on the market and 5 times harder than paint is normally used in domestic trailers. This is also the reason why, exposed to the weather, trailers rust quickly. He is what you would call inventor-entrepreneur. Being already familiar with the field of intellectual property, he conducted an Internet international patent search from over 3,000 patents and, as expected, none covered all aspects of its structure. As meticulous as a person can possibly be, he is currently putting as much time preparing the demonstration prototype as if he was working on the finished product. Suppliers have been carefully selected and without exceptions, all are established in Quebec. This criteria had also been established from the very beginning and was also essential, although many advised him to do certain manufacturing components in China. By the time you read this attestation, there is a good chance that is domestic folding trailers will already be available on the market. His greatest wish is that his son18 and daughter 19 be actively involved in his business. Rene 38 years old should serve as a mentor for several years. Wish him the best of luck!
