Brevard, North Carolina – Spring-boarding off of the unprecedented success of 2016, SylvanSport is bracing for the cold and driving up north, and adding two new dealers in Canada and the Eastern United States.
The two new dealers that have added the SylvanSport Go to their lines are Arrkann Trailer & RV in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta; and Hemlock Hill RV in Southington, Connecticut.
Rick Como, owner of Como RV in Iverness, Florida, says SylvanSport is building relationships quickly in the RV industry, which can account for much of its success.
"Working with the quality GO camping trailer models this year at the Tampa Florida RV SuperShow was a joy, especially when I had Kyle Mundt from the factory at my side, to demonstrate the many features of the unit,” Como says. "Hundreds of show goers stopped and visited at length, they were amazed at the GO's versatility."
SylvanSport continues to work with its existing dealers such as Como, but also keeping an eye on the future expansion. The two new dealers are:
• ArrKan Trailer and RV Centre – 1904 80 Avenue Edmonton, AB.
• ArrKan Trailer and RV Centre- 2620 Barlow Trail Northeast Calgary, AB. ArrKan has been in both Edmonton and Calgary since the business opened in 1976.
• Hemlock Hill RV– 2123 Meriden Waterbury Turnpike Southington, CT. Located just off Exit 28 on Interstate 84, Hemlock Hill RV is family owned and operated.
Following the success of 2016, SylvanSport is expecting an even bigger 2017. With new launches planned, markets to be opened and a new factory breaking ground, SylvanSport continues to look to the future.
