About Us

Importing and restoring vintage aluminium trailers from the United States, to use as catering units and many other business applications is becoming more and more popular. Little wonder, considering their eye catching looks and iconic styling. A well presented example will certainly get you noticed and remembered. The problem is, the supply of usable examples is finite, and rapidly diminishing, meaning the standard of trailer landing in the UK is getting lower and lower, they are costing more and more to restore, suffering from corroded chassis, rotting floors and bodywork which is literally coming apart at the seams. Some of them are of course over 60 years old.

They were also originally built as holiday trailers with lightweight interiors and not designed to carry the sort of heavy equipment used in a modern catering unit.

The solution is REVIVAL TRAILERS®.

Revival Trailers® recapture all the classic styling and presence of the originals, but in a completely new hand built trailer, which takes all the desirable aspects of the original, and blends it with the benefits of the most modern materials and engineering methods. The cost of a new Revival Trailer® will often work out to be less than buying, importing and restoring a vintage example, will be just as stylish and be a brand new and guaranteed product, designed to work hard for your business, not just for two weeks holiday a year!

Revival trailers® can be supplied as a lined shell, including insulation, interior cladding and lighting, or with a choice of catering fit outs, and are available in four sizes, 17, 19, 21, and 24ft. The 17 and 19ft models are single axle, while the 21 and 24ft are double axle.

Revival trailers® are all hand built to order, by a small team of craftsmen who you can rely on to provide you with a unique and high quality product. Please see the following pages for an insight into the design and creation of these modern icons

Don’t just take our word for it……

Yogiyo! Take out Ltd. London

"Working with Revival Trailers has been a great experience and their final product has surpassed our expectations. Richard and the teams attention to detail and passion for creating the best possible product is evident in all the little features and fixes for possible problem areas. Our trailer is not only stunning visual piece but also a great functioning catering unit. We could not really ask any more of the team."

Streat Cuisine. Oxford.

Having decided to take the plunge and spend all our savings (and more) on setting up a street food business and having a stunning retro American style catering pod made for me by Revival Trading Limited. After several months of deliberations and visits to food markets, our funky retro American style food pod, all carefully made and designed in the UK was born.

Ideas Box. London

“Having looked at many options, and there are many out there, we eventually chose Revival to build a trailer for us that would not only be a show stopper with incredible wow factor, but also have the functionality and flexibility for our exacting requirements. Richard from Revival was a real pleasure to work with, accommodating our every need and executing them all to the highest standard. The end result has made us very happy and she turns heads everywhere we go. Not only is she good to look at, she tows like a dream too, you have to look in the mirror to remind yourself it’s there!”
