About Us

About us:

Over 55 years and still loving the trailer business!!


The Family:

2019 was a very blessed and memorable year! Jim had to go through heart surgery in 2018 and he went through a lot of set backs so our 1st priority was to get the family back to good health! We all feel so blessed that Papa Jim has turned around and recovered very strongly and is close to being back to himself. With this great news, life was good, and then we got more exciting news with the engagement of Teri and I's youngest daughter Jami - getting married to a wonderful family man, Alec Reinhardt! So as you can imagine much of the year was spent on planning a beautiful wedding that took place on September 20th. It was an amazing day to say the least!


Jim and Bonnie Simon, along with their children Teri Kusilek and Ryon Simon, have been in the trailer business for over 55 years. It was 1965 when they started selling W-W trailers in Apple Valley, Minnesota. In 1977 they moved their business to Cannon Falls, which is still home. And yes, we still sell W-W trailers today. I am going on 37 years with Arena Trailer Sales and this business is very personal to us all. Being family-owned and operated, we have very strong values when it comes to honesty, making good and fair deals for our customers, and always trying to go the extra mile. Teri and I have three daughters and now three son in-laws, Katie and Luke Cooreman, Kelly and Cory Johnson, and Jami and Alec Reinhardt. We have been blessed with six beautiful grandchildren. Ryon and Rachelle, have three kids Ava, James and Sam. We are truly grateful to have such a loving and close family! Jim and Bonnie adore their grandchildren and great grandchildren and feel very blessed!


The Inventory:

Along with W-W, we represent some of the most premier trailers in the industry, including 4 Star, Cimarron, Lakota, Bison, SMC, Titan, Wilson Livestock Trailers, Delta, Diamond C, and US Cargo, and we always have a great selection of clean pre-owned trailers. We keep a very nice inventory on hand at all times, typically between 200-300 trailers, including 40 to 50 Living quarters to choose from. Whether you are looking to buy an inventory unit or you have a custom trailer in mind we are here to help you through the entire process. We always say: IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN BUILD IT! And we are always looking to get you the best trailer at the best price.

The Customers:

It is without question that next to our team, this is one of the most important parts of our operation! The people we have met in this business are unbelievable. The equine community, ranchers, and farmer groups of people are fantastic.  We strive and work very hard to make our customer service and loyalty the best our industry has to offer. We not only take care of our customers through their purchases, but the after sale is very important to us, and you have our personal guarantee that we will be there if you need any service or just have a question concerning your trailer.  I would like to thank you for choosing Arena Trailer Sales and we look forward to seeing you soon!
