Tulsa, Oklahoma – The Bob Hurley Auto family has announced a major expansion to Bob Hurley RV with the purchase of 17 acres of land south of its current property at 2002 W Skelly Drive.
The new expansion will allow Bob Hurley RV the ability to nearly triple the size of the dealership, making it one of the largest in a multi-state region. Plans for the expansion include added parking for more RV inventory, an RV consignment area and expanding the service area.
The new land acquisition will bring the total property to just more than 30 acres. This will allow room for immediate and future growth, including the construction of a new service and parts facility to meet the growing demand, according to General Manager Kim Siex.
“Bob Hurley RV has experienced unprecedented growth in the industry, mainly due to the quality of our workforce and centralized U.S. location," Siex says. "People from 47 states have purchased RVs from our dealership in the four short years we have been open."
Bob Hurley RV opened in October 2013 and is now the largest RV dealer in Oklahoma. This was the third addition to the Bob Hurley Auto group after Bob Hurley Ford and the GMC-Buick dealerships. Siex is the General Manager and Managing Partner at Bob Hurley RV and has more than 30 years of RV dealer experience.
“In the past 40 years, 2016 was the best year for the national RV industry," Siex says. "Bob Hurley RV has recognized a strong demand in the Midwest and we are determined to be the industry leader in this region. Tulsa is a very ‘RV friendly town, within one day’s drive for a large part of the RV market, making it convenient for people to shop online and travel here to complete their purchase.”
