SylvanSport Adds Three New Dealers in Arkansas and Kansas

Mon Dec 5, 2016

145934691468837.jpgBrevard, North Carolina - Manifest destiny may not be over; SylvanSport continues to move westward as more dealers in the region are adding the SylvanSport GO to their inventory. Two new dealer partners, one in Arkansas and one in Kansas have made the GO even more accessible for Midwestern Americans.

With the industry leading innovation and durability of the GO, it’s no wonder it is increasingly making its way westward.

“The people at Sylvansport have been amazing to work with," Dan Golden of All Seasons RV in Statesboro, Ohio says. "The GO really speaks for itself; customers that are looking for something like this are just amazed at how well built and easy it is to set up. We have also talked with a few customers who already own one and all they talk about is the durability of the product.”

Especially with the coming winter, durability is one of the GO’s most popular qualities in the Midwest.

“I have personally driven over 75,000 miles this year, meeting with a select group of RV Dealers, demoing the GO and sharing the good news, regarding the award winning GO camper," SylvanSport Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says. "We now have over 45 quality Dealer-Partners who are committed to serving the small camper customer. We are growing rapidly, we are excited and we are extremely grateful to welcome new Dealers to our network.”

The SylvanSport GO can now be purchased at these Arkansas and Kansas retailers:

• Crain RV - 9801 Interstate 30 in Little Rock, Arkansas and Crain Automotive & RV, 1003 N Museum Road in Conway, Arkansas.

With two locations, Crain RV has one of the largest selections of new and used RVs in Arkansas.

• Flint Hills RV - 1523 Ledgerwood Drive in Andover, Kansas.

Flint Hills RV is located on Highway 54 in Andover, Kansas. It features a wide selection of Recreational Vehicles including new and used motorhomes, folding campers, travel trailers and fifth wheels.

2016 may be winding down, but SylvanSport is still revving up. If you are interested in becoming a part of the SylvanSport dealer network, contact Hunter at 828-883-4292.
