About Us

Can-Am is a family business built on a 49-year tradition of value, service and craftsmanship.

Started by Andy Thomson Sr. in 1970, Can-Am RV was built on his vision of an Airstream dealership with a superior service department. With a background as a mechanical troubleshooter for Otis Elevator, Andy was well-equipped to tackle the demands of the RV service and repair business. As an avid Airstreamer, he loved travelling the world in his travel trailer and wanted to share the experience with others.

Can-Am is operated today by sons Andy and Kirk Thomson along with their team of expert technicians, well-versed sales staff, and experienced support staff.

Can-Am's team is bound by a passion for RVs and the RV Lifestyle. Our success is based largely on our desire to share that passion: through service, sales, education and fun.
