We are a family-owned business specializing in lightweight travel trailers. We carry a wide variety of camper lines which we have selected based on quality and value. Several are four-cylinder friendly while most can be pulled by your average car or truck.
Currently we carry 7 lines of campers, camper and trailer accessories, and specialty camping gear from Byer of Maine, Candle Located in western Pennsylvania just north of the scenic ShenangoLake, we are easily accessed from I-80 (exit 4B). Our dealership is at 3610 N. Hermitage Rd (Rt.18) in Transfer. Our facility is situated on 3 ½ acres with over 4,500 square feet of indoor showroom.
Our large inventory includes “teardrop trailers” (Little Guy & Silver Shadow), “hard-sided folding trailer” (Aliner), “conventional trailers” (Starcraft), “retro-trailers” (Scotty & R-Pods), “traditional pop-ups” (Viking), and “Class C Motorhomes” (Sunseeker by Forest River).
The new breed of small travel trailers offer many choices and options. With this in mind we categorize our campers in three categories:
Ultra-Lights(dry weight under 1000#). These are the lightest of classes and are four cylinder friendly. Even though short on options, these campers do have queen sized beds! Models in this group include Aliner, Little Guy and Viking. Prices range from $5,000-$9000.
Mid-Lights(dry weight under 1600#). With advances in construction and materials you can have it all! This weight range has a full host of features that include: a/c, furnace, microwave, refrigerator, sink & stove. Only one offers a mounted toilet, but all have a place for a portable toilet. Models in this group include Aliner, Scotty, and Viking. Prices range from $9000-$15,000.
Regular-Lights(dry weight around 2500#). Still a friendly weight and size, these include all the features of the mid-lights plus either have a mounted toilet and/or a toilets/shower unit. This weight group also typically includes electric brakes as a standard feature. Models in this group include Aliner, R-Pod,Starcraft, Serro Scotty and Viking. Prices range from $12,000-$20,000.
Also now carried by Kerola’s Camper Store is a line of Class C Motor Homes: Sunseeker by Forest River. These motor homes feature all of luxury of their bigger brothers without the big price tag. These feature a queen sized bed, full bathroom with separate shower, generator and electric awning. Nicely equipped starting at $59,995.
Now, let us tell you a little bit about ourselves. We are lifelong campers. Every summer and lots of weekends my parents packed us up, and headed out for quality family and nature time. From the morning coffee to the evening campfire, we love it all! The family tradition has carried on with my own family, creating many great memories for us and our children. Whether our outings are in tents, small campers, or motor home, my family and I have enjoyed endless adventures, from north to south, sea to mountains, and everywhere in between!
When the opportunity came to create my dream job it was an easy decision - Campers! All the RV dealers I had ever visited carried large campers with perhaps one or two token smaller campers. My vision was to open a small campers dealership focusing on the convenient and fun 8 to 18 foot size. Thanks to the help of many family and friends this passion led to the opening the first “Big Little” store - Kerola Campers. Since our opening, we have had the good fortune to expand our business to include one or two “token” larger trailers, as well as one line of Class C motor homes!
With 7 different lines of campers and a huge camping goods inventory, we offer many unique things all in one place! Unlike the “big box” stores, I wanted to offer superior quality specialty gear that is hard to find. We also carry good quality every day gear in addition to the high quality gear, to create a selection reflecting both vigor and practicality. The brands that we stock include, Byer of Maine, Case, Coleman, Duluth Pack, Gransfors-Bruks, Kelty,Coghlan, Isle of Candles, Candle Lantern, Lodge, MagLite, Paha Que, Snow and Neeley,Stansport, Surefire,Tilley, Winchester, Woodsman’s Pal, and Zippo. The gear we stock is the gear we use!

Let us help you find the right camper so you can create many wonderful adventures and memories for yourself and your family. Come in as a guest, but leave as a friend!
