Fraserway RV LP has been awarded the RVDA of British Columbia Dealer of the Year Award.
Fraserway has been operating for 47 years at its location in Abbotsford, British Columbia and has 14 dealerships operating under various DBA names, while also has other business units under the umbrella of Adventurer Group.
"Fraserway is very honored by this award," Owner James Epp says. "Ever since my dad, Erdman, started the company in 1969, he always said, 'Never satisfied until good is better and better is best.' That motto has always helped us strive to do the best work we can, so this award means something very special to us. There are a number of factors that have contributed to our successes over the years, but I want to specifically acknowledge the many Fraserway employees who have worked hard to earn this recognition."
Fraserway has led the initiative to correct the European Driver License issue for rentals operations, is a founding member of the RVRAC and hosts two annual RV dealer shows to promote the RV industry, among other industry contributions, according to the RVDA of British Columbia.
