Thu Feb 23, 2017

147732590938283.jpgBrevard, North Carolina - SylvanSport continues to push boundaries in both design and territory. From Texas to Ontario, two new dealers have added SylvanSport to their lines: Ottawa Camping Trailers (Ottawa, Ontario) and Amazing RVs (Houston, Texas).

“We have always been the traditional RV dealer selling Pop-ups, travel trailers and fifth wheels," Shannon Bumgarner of Bumgarner Camping Center in Lenoir, North Carolina says. "We ran across this fantastic outdoor company right in our own backyard, selling this amazing, innovative camping trailer. Along with its unique design, the GO camper’s quality is unsurpassed. Offering these campers has allowed us to serve a whole new customer base that the traditional RV dealer never knew existed.”

The SylvanSport GO has long been attracting an active and adventurous clientele who seek more from their campers. Its sleek and innovative design makes the outdoors much more accessible for SylvanSport’s customers.
