SylvanSport Adds Two Dealers in Virginia and Indiana

Tue Feb 7, 2017

147732590938283.jpgBrevard, North Carolina - Continuing the momentum it established in 2016, SylvanSport hit the road this winter in the critically acclaimed GO. From the East to the Midwest, two new dealers have added the SylvanSport GO to their lines: American Family RV (Chesapeake, Virginia) and Modern Trailer (Anderson, Indiana).

SylvanSport’s driving force for continued expansion of its dealer network is the ability to reach more customers with its GO and GO Easy Adventure Trailers.

“We continue to develop and add to our network of quality dealer-partners throughout the U.S., Canada and on other continents as well. It's these partnerships that make it possible for us to share our great SylvanSport products with more and more people,” Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says.

Since launching its dealer expansion campaign in 2016 to expand its dealer network, SylvanSport’s partnership number has increased by more than 300 percent. This initiative has not only aided in GO and GO-Easy sales, but has helped to build strong relationships with both SylvanSport’s partners and customers.

SylvanSport’s two newest dealers, located in Virginia and Indiana, are exciting additions to the SylvanSport network.
