Action Awnings and Upholstery Opens New Location

Fri Aug 19, 2016

Yuma, Arizona – Action Awnings and Upholstery Center in Yuma has announced the opening of a new on-site location for its RV Dash Cover business. The company will open a center in the Arizona Marketplace in Yuma in September.

“This will provide our customers the opportunity to review colors and styles prior to ordering," Owner Daniel Tuller says. "In addition, if RV Dash Covers does not have a current pattern in stock, we will make a pattern for them. It is a great benefit to our RV owners to have a dash cover that is assured to be a perfect fit.”

Dash covers help reduce glare in an RV while driving. The UV rays and light are absorbed by the cover instead of bouncing up and into the driver’s and passenger’s eyes, thus reducing eye strain and providing a better driving experience.

RV Dash Covers was recently highlighted on AmericanRVer, a monthly webcast about RVing, and included how to make your own pattern should the company not have your exact model. The show can be seen at www.americanrver.com. Jim and Peggy Grich are full-time RVers, have been producers and hosts of American RVer for more than eight years, and simply enjoy the RV lifestyle and want to share it with others.

Custom dash covers may be ordered directly from the company website at www.rvdashcovers.com or by phone at 800-393-2169. All products have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
