Getting Through the Deep Freeze in Winnipeg

Winnipeggers are potentially seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of this harsh winter.

Yes folks, relief may soon be in sight, but we’re not out of the woods just yet. While temperatures are rising over the next couple days to more Winnipeg winter season levels (rather than Mars winter season levels), we’re not clear just yet.

According to, we’re still due for below-normal temperatures in mid-February, which means that Valentine’s Day may be a bit more snuggly.

What that means for your truck is that it’s still going to be going through some rough temperatures overnight, and if you’re at all concerned about the health of your battery, breaks or any other parts, you’re best served to get the work done while there is a break in the weather over the next few days.

So whether your mudflaps snapped or your rails were damaged by the ice barrage, head down to Carlson Truck Outfitters at our new location – 155 Fennell near McGillivray – and talk with our truck accessory experts. We’ll provide you with the best advice for your ride’s needs to finish winter in style.

We’ve moved! Carlson Truck Outfitters at 155 Fennell in Winnipeg

We’ve moved!

Officially as of today, Carlson Truck Outfitters is now at its new location close to the Waverley Auto Mall in Winnipeg.

Our new location is 155 Fennell, right at the corner of Fennell St. and Buffalo Pl., just off McGillivray Blvd. in Winnipeg’s south end.

We’ve been hard at work over the last while getting the new location ready for business, and today our bay is open for polyurea spray-in bedliners, and over the course of the next few weeks we’ll have more information for you on our new digs, but we’ll tell you this for now:

1. Our new facility is substantially bigger than our previous location on Regent Avenue, with more showroom space to house your truck accessory needs.

2. Our new truckbed liner spray-in bay is open for business. We have ensured a smooth transition and we are ready to serve Winnipeg and the surrounding area right away! So don’t hesitate to book an appointment with us right away!

As noted, we will have more to come shortly so stay tuned to the Carlson Truck Outfitters blog for more exciting information.
