SylvanSport Adds Two Midwest Dealers

Mon Oct 10, 2016

147611673942115.jpgBrevard, North Carolina - SylvanSport is heading west this fall, with two new GO dealers, one in Colorado and one in New Mexico. Midwest adventurers can now take their GOs to the Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains and beyond.

Many Westerners have already taken their GOs along for excursions across the region. After Dan from Tucson, Arizona, bought his GO, he discovered an undying love for adventure, according to a press release.

“I surprised my kids with a random trip to North Carolina and then disappeared into the Colorado Rockies for a couple weeks," Dan says. "Since then it’s been to Alaska, Key West, Michigan, Canada (twice), the Rockies and more.”

The SylvanSport GO can now be purchased at these Colorado and New Mexico retailers:

• Ketelsen Campers of Colorado - 9870 W I-70 Service Road South Wheat Ridge, CO 80033

Ketelsen Campers of Colorado is a full-service Colorado RV Dealer in Denver for new and used travel trailers, fifth wheels, tent trailers, truck campers, toy haulers, pop-ups and folding trailers with thousands of RV Parts and RV Accessories.

• Rocky Mountain RV - 12700 Central SE Albuquerque, NM 87123

Rocky Mountain RV’s family owned and operated RV dealership has been in the Outdoor Family Fun business since 1986.

2016 has been successful for SylvanSport as the company has developed a robust dealer network, totaling more than 50 dealers. If you are interested in becoming a part of the SylvanSport dealer-partner network, contact Earl Hunter at 828-883-4292.
