National RV Supply Expands Product Offering by 60 Percent

Tue Aug 9, 2016

145348152937193.jpgElkhart, Indiana – Sharp increases in demand have encouraged National RV Supply to expand its product offering by nearly 60 percent since announcing its program for independent dealers earlier this year.

NRVS has added brands and expanded offerings in Towing and Air Conditioning categories, with brands like Curt and Advent, dramatically extending the range of products available from key vendors like Camco, Cequent, Valterra, Thetford/Norcold and from leading vendors of towing, roofing, electronics and sanitation products. National RV Supply also will be incorporating the repair parts programs and web-based lookup tools developed by the recently acquired Lightning RV Supply operations across the country, as part of the expanded National RV Supply offering.

“While our initial thoughts when we launched NRVS were to offer a more limited product range, dealers have convinced us to expand that range dramatically, and we expect the expansion to continue,” National RV Supply President Johnny Sirpilla says.

Additional vendor and product additions will be announced to dealers in the coming months.

“Our goal is to provide the customer with what they need, when they need it, at fantastic prices,” Sirpilla says.
