History of P&S Trailer

Airstream interior makeover by the Ruth Boys

P&S Travel Trailer Service has been owned and operated by the Ruth family for over 34 years. The idea of a business to refinishing Airstreams came about when Paul Ruth purchased a 1964 Airstream Overlander that was in need of such a service.  In 1968, Paul and son Steve visited the Airstream Service Center at the factory in Jackson Center, Ohio to inquire if there was any interest in a refinishing business.  The Ruth's received much encouragement from the factory personnel in their new venture and started working part-time on Airstreams from a nearby dealer in Toledo.  This "part-time" business started to grow by word of mouth and by 1970 turned into a full time business for the family.

In 1974, Paul moved to Florida to manage Travelers Rest Airstream Park retiring in 1990. He moved back to Ohio near the family farm. Paul passed away in January 2016.

Steve's son, Kevin joined the business in 1989 and the family expanded the business to include Zip Dee awning installation, metal replacement and collision work.
