Bigger is not always Better with RV Dealers
One of the biggest mistakes RV buyers make (especially first-time buyers and newbies) is assuming that the “awe factor” of the outside of a giant RV Dealership is a sign of the kind of service that dealer provides its customers after the sale. “Not so” says Cannon Combs, RV Industry veteran. In this short interview, you’ll learn why Big and Fancy does not mean Professional and Speedy! We also learn of RV Station’s new Camper Class; open to RVers no matter where they purchased their RV (or if they even own one).
