Brevard, North Carolina - The Elkhart RV Open House is one of the key events in the RV industry, where hundreds of dealers from across the country come to see the latest and greatest and start making preparations for the upcoming year. While some of the larger RV manufacturers held a drawing for cars, SylvanSport created a buzz by giving away one of the most innovative and unique items at the show, a GO Easy, the ultimate Mobile Adventure Gear hauler.
Every dealer that signed up with SylvanSport at the show was entered into the drawing for a brand new GO Easy. After all the dust had settled and new relationships formed, the winner was chosen at random. All-Seasons RV, in Akron, Ohio, won the drawing and has joined SylvanSports' growing dealer network.
“For SylvanSport, the giveaway was less of an incentive piece and more of a fun way for us to show our dealers how much we appreciate them and all of the great work that they put into representing our brand and products,” Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says. “It’s all about building a strong SylvanSport network with dealers that have integrity and passion for our customers and products, which is always a win-win for everyone.”
SylvanSport expanded its reach throughout the U.S., as well as Canada, at the Elkhart RV Open House.
