Felling Inspires Family to Honor Daughter's Memory with Pink Trailer

Posted on 5/19/2016 by Gwen Brown

Gerald and Darlene Dinger of Britton, SD were on their way to Camping World in Rogers, MN when their path brought them through Sauk Centre, MN. As they drove down County Rd. 28, they saw a “Pink trailer” in the parking lot of a local business. When the Dinger’s took a closer look at the trailer, they saw the trailer was a Felling FT-3 and had a “Bright Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness sticker on it. This sticker struck a chord for the Dingers, as they lost their second oldest daughter Cheryl to Breast Cancer a few years prior. They decided they wanted their own “Pink Trailer” to own and use in honor of her memory. The Dingers took down the contact number for Felling Trailers and a short time later, Gerald made the call. Gerald spoke with a Felling Trailers Sales Consultant and told him how they had lost their daughter and wanted to order a trailer like the one they had saw that day. The Trailer Sales Consultant was able to get the ball rolling on the Breast Cancer trailer for the Dingers and set them up with Albers Sales, a Felling Trailers Authorized Dealer in Oaks, ND, just 40 miles from the Dinger’s home in Britton.
