Carrying the momentum from a stellar 2016, SylvanSport launched a significant campaign to make its award-winning line of GO and GO Easy Mobile Adventure Gear trailers even more accessible to its customers.

“The management and staff of Browns RV Superstore is excited to be South Carolina’s exclusive SylvanSport GO dealer,” General Manager Barry Brown says. “The integrity and high quality that the SylvanSport GO represents will meet the demands of today’s customers who want to take their first step into the camper lifestyle, but with a unique alternative to traditional RVs and features that are unmatched in our industry.”

SylvanSport’s two newest dealers are close to home and are exciting additions to the SylvanSport network, according to a press release.

• Bumgarner Camping Center – 2206 Hickory Blvd. SW, Lenoir, NC 28645
A family-owned, full service RV dealer, Bumgarner Camping Center has new and used RV sales inventory featuring travel trailers, fifth wheels and folding campers.

• Browns RV Superstore – 30049 Highway 151, McBee, SC 29101
Browns RV has a huge selection of Motor Homes, Travel Trailers, Fifth Wheels and Toy Haulers. It is located near Columbia, Fayetteville and Myrtle Beach.

“2016 was SylvanSport’s busiest year; our dealer network grew from 0 to over 45 dealers," Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says. "Our track record is strong and we are only looking to add about 20 more dealers in the US and Canada in 2017."

By increasing the number of SylvanSport GO and GO Easy dealers, SylvanSport is determined to make its critically acclaimed lightweight trailers more accessible to customers across the country — and the rest of the world.

After the tremendous success of 2016, SylvanSport is expecting another great year in 2017.
