Brevard, North Carolina - Continuing SylvanSport’s steady campaign to expand its North American dealer network, the company recently announced the addition of two more premium RV dealers. Two new Midwestern dealers have added the SylvanSport GO to their lines: Airstream of Chicago (Naperville, Illinois) and Byerly RV Center (Eureka, Missouri).
This year, SylvanSport is particularly focused on extending into the western half of the United States. SylvanSport Vice President of Sales, Earl Hunter, is continuing his search for excellent dealers in the Midwest and Western part of the U.S.
“By expanding our network of dealers across the United States, we are getting the GO out to more and more people," Hunter says. "The GO becomes more accessible and easier to witness its quality, unique features and value first hand. It’s all about driving the business.”
