Roadmaster Factory Rep Randy Ramey Expands Territory to Include OK

Mon Jun 5, 2017

149642205081589.jpgRoadmaster’s factory representative for Texas, Randy Ramey, has expanded his territory to include Oklahoma.

Ramey has a lifetime of experience in the RV industry. His father owned an RV dealership and at age seven, put Randy to work sweeping floors. Over the years, Ramey worked his way up to sales and never looked back.

Ramey has lived in Texas since 1986, when he took a job with Vanguard Industries, manufacturer of Palomino camping trailers.

“I think growing up in RV sales and later representing RV manufacturers gives me a unique perspective,” Ramey says. "I really understand both sides of the fence.”

As to what he brings to Texas and now Oklahoma, it’s “the best product in the industry,” Ramey says. "Customers pay for value and I think Roadmaster brings the most value of any product out there. I also live in my customers’ neck of the woods. I understand the unique challenges within this market.”

“We’re excited to have a representative of Randy’s qualifications on board,” Roadmaster President Jerry Edwards says. "He’s brought a wealth of RV knowledge and relationships to Texas and now to Oklahoma.”

Roadmaster, Inc. manufactures RV aftermarket products including tow bars, braking systems and suspension products. For more information, go to www.roadmasterinc.com or call 800-669-9690.
