A new-to-market company has rolled into Ashland, Virginia with a $20 million plan to capture a chunk of the Mid-Atlantic RV market – and it’s lured some former salespeople of a nearby competitor to gain its foothold.
Michigan-based General RV Center is planting its first Virginia RV dealership in Hanover County’s Northlake Industrial Park at 12195 Harley Club Drive in Ashland.
General RV opened the center Monday led by general manager Ed McNamara, who has 40 years of RV sales experience – the last eight at McGeorge Rolling Hills RV, which has a massive lot less than a mile north, according to a story by the Richmond Biz Sense.
