SylvanSport Adds Two Dealers in Alabama

Mon Oct 24, 2016

147732590938283.jpgBrevard, North Carolina - SylvanSport has added to its growing dealer market by adding two new GO dealerships in Huntsville and Madison, Alabama.

SylvanSport dealers across the country have been enjoying great success this year.

“The GO is an amazing product and SylvanSport has been a great company to work with," Kelly Shanholtzer of Beckley’s RV in Thurmont, Maryland says. "They give their dealers big territories and we really appreciate that. At our showroom, the GO has been a real head turner. Displaying one GO in the up position (Camping Mode) and one down (both Travel Mode and Transport Mode) is the only way to display the product, to get the best ‘bang for the buck.’”

While SylvanSport continues to grow, their dealers have enjoyed the benefits.

“We are now turning our attention to the Midwest and Western part of the U.S.," SylvanSport Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says. "We are also looking forward to opening more Dealers in Canada.”

The SylvanSport GO can now be purchased at these Alabama retailers:

• Madison RV Supercenter - 9311 Madison Blvd in Madison.

The management team at Madison RV Center has developed an exceptional staff that is focused on understanding and meeting RV needs. They have been honored as a "Circle of Excellence" winner by Winnebago Industries, Inc. every year since 1996.

• Southern RV Wholesale - 1707 Jordan Lane in Huntsville.

A division of Madison RV Supercenter.
