Little Guy Worldwide and GFM Industries Announce Partnership

Little Guy Worldwide and GFM Industries Announce Strategic Partnership, Combining Two Robust Resources for Recreational Vehicles.

Little Guy and Park Liner

GREEN, OHIO – Little Guy Worldwide, LLC is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with GFM Industries, LLC, a leading recreational manufacturer. This partnership ensures customers are able to receive the highest quality manufacturing standards, outstanding service options, simplified parts ordering and product customization benefits as a result of the companies’ combined 20 years of experience serving this industry.

ParkLiner manufactures lightweight fiberglass travel trailers.

Benefits that Parkliner customers can expect beginning in Spring 2017:

Explore a Parkliner Up Close and In Person
Parkliner products will transition from ‘factory direct only’ sales to purchase options from a national dealer body. Previously, you would only be able to purchase from our factory in Liberty, NC. Now, you will be able to head to an RV dealership within a reasonable distance from your house, to experience the inside of a Parkliner and examine the amenities and options for yourself. While we no longer will sell factory direct to customers, our NC factory tours are still available so we encourage you to come by and hang out with us!

New Financing and Trade-in Options
No more having to bring cash, check or credit card to pay for the full amount upfront. The dealerships will be able to offer you competitive financing options that will fit your monthly budget. Currently have an RV? Talk to your local dealership and see what they can do for a trade-in.

Readily Available Parts and Service
Access to dealers across the country who have been trained on Parkliner construction and components will afford you greater opportunity to obtain local, specialized service and parts should you ever need them. And, should you need to store your camper away for the winter, you can take it to your RV dealer for winterizing service.

Skip the Line
Through a higher production capacity, coupled with the available inventory at RV dealerships nationally, you can “skip the line.” – meaning, no more ordering your fiberglass trailer and waiting six months to pick up your new camper. Your new Parkliner is ready and available whenever you are!

We are very excited to now offer the Parkliner brand through an RV dealer near you. This partnership provides you, the customer, with tremendous new options and benefits.

ParkLiner Introduces Longer 16-Foot Model

ParkLiner Introduces Longer 16-Foot Model: Designed to Give You Peace of Mind!

The new ParkLiner 16 is longer and more luxurious than ever. While the original ParkLiner incorporated many ingenious features into the lightweight fiberglass camper, the new, improved model rivals the best trailers on the market today.

This new generation model features an inner and outer fiberglass shell. We have also added a double layer of insulation between the shells to keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Additionally, the new ParkLiner features an A/C with a beautiful low-profile 11,500 BTU roof model, allowing for more storage inside.

And that’s not all. There’s an outside storage compartment designed to give you ample room to house your essential camping equipment, and the unit’s entry door is taller for more functionality and safety–all while lending to a newer, sleeker look.

One of the new ParkLiner’s most noteworthy features is that the entire structure is 100-percent fiberglass. That’s right! No wood supporting the trailer, including the floor. The only wood used is for the handcrafted maple cabinet doors, ensuring a completely rot-free trailer, peace of mind, and zero maintenance.

The ParkLiner 16 will offer new features, while standardizing some of the classic options that make the ParkLiner great. This unit will be priced starting in the mid-$20,000’s. Head over to to sign up for future mailings once information becomes available.

We will be announcing the dealership locations shortly. Stay tuned!

Press Release: Little Guy to Manufacture Serro Scotty Trailers at New Plant

July 22, 2016

For more information, contact Little Guy Worldwide (877) 5454897


GREEN, OHIO – Little Guy Worldwide, distributor of the most popular models of teardrop camping trailers in the USA, will develop a new line of trailers under the Serro Scotty brand name, the iconic campers that fueled a small-trailer craze in the ’60s and ’70s.

The Serro Scotty brand expands the Little Guy lineup of vintage-style trailers that thousands of camping enthusiasts have purchased from RV dealers around the world.

“Scotty trailers are a big part of the rich camping heritage of America,” said Joe Kicos, owner and president of Little Guy. “We are very excited to add the Scotty trailer brand and history to the Little Guy family.”

Kicos said Scotty brand strengthens the company’s reputation for offering smaller, high quality trailers to customers looking for fun and simpler camping adventures.

“Our customers tell us they want to get back to basics,” Kicos said. “The new Little Guys and Scotty’s do just that. Campers can make lifetime memories in the comfort of these modern trailers.”

With their classic teardrop shape, Little Guy trailers have become the most identifiable and economical teardrops on the market. From 20 units sold in 2002 when Kicos founded the company, to the thousands of trailers providing enjoyment in the USA and other countries today, the growth of Little Guy sales continues.

John Serro founded the Serro Scotty Co. on July 4, 1957, with a vision of manufacturing affordable family campers. The company was headquartered in Irwin, Pennsylvania. A 1997 fire destroyed the Irwin factory, ending the family’s trailer-building business. “I could not have picked a better organization outside of Little Guy Worldwide to bring back the Serro Scotty” said Gary Pirchl, the grandson of John Serro. “They have built such a great community under the Little Guy brand and the Serro Scotty name will make a great addition.”

During that time, dozens of Scotty Clubs made up of fans of the trailer sprang up all along the East Coast. Serro purchased 300 acres in Rockwood, Pennsylvania, east of Irwin, and in 1962 developed Scottyland, a campground
just for Scotty trailers.

Little Guy Worldwide recently announced its expansion strategy into the distribution of high-end campers and trailers at a new 169,000 square foot facility. Little Guy Worldwide has reserved another 200,000 square feet of space for future expansion.
