Brevard, North Carolina - SylvanSport continues to expand its growing dealer network this year, with an international focus, particularly in Canada. Two new Canadian dealers have added the SylvanSport GO to their lines: Granby Caravane of Granby, Quebec and Revy RV of Duncan, British Columbia.
SylvanSport’s Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter recognizes the importance of expanding an international market.
“We have worked hard to find and open the best dealers in Canada," Hunter says. "With six dealers from British Columbia to Ontario, we’re now turning our attention to the Midwest and Western part of the U.S."
"As soon as we received our first shipment of GOs, we set them up in our showroom and even our parts department," Granby Caravane Owner Steve Chainey says. "People can really see and appreciate the versatility and quality of the design and build of the GO. We look forward to great success with SylvanSport.”
