Elkhart, Indiana – National RV Supply has hit another major milestone with reaching 1,000 independent dealer accounts since launching in late March 2016. RV dealers across the country have been seeing the value and need for change in the current RV aftermarket wholesale distribution model after recent RV aftermarket consolidations, and National RV Supply has brought pricing levels to the industry that are putting profits back in dealer’s businesses and ensuring that needed RV products are available to consumers at affordable prices.
“The dealers have tested us with orders to ensure that our pricing promise of significant savings holds true and they have responded with more orders,” says John Sirpilla, the chief development officer and president of National RV Supply. “We are keeping our warehouses stocked and making sure we are meeting the demand to keep the dealers focused on taking care of the RVer. We have consistently been adding 50-60 new dealers per week and the comments from P&A Managers seeing the impact to their gross margins on their financial statements validates our mission.”
National RV Supply is continuing to add the aftermarket’s strongest and brightest team members to the company to ensure that each joining dealership gets access to RV professionals with great experience serving them.
