Fort Worth, Texas — Regency RV, a division of Wayne Davis Auto Group, has announced that it has added RV Land of Kyle, Texas to its roster of dealers selling its luxury type B Motorhomes. The coaches are built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis in Fort Worth, Texas. Dymon Farrer, national sales manager for the company said that Regency is looking for a very select group of dealers to take on, and RV Land was a “perfect fit.”
“We are excited to partner with Regency and offer the class B’s and the soon-to-be B Pluses," RV Land Owner Lance Stewart says. "The fit and finish is just top notch across the board. It is very indicative of the quality that we are accustomed to seeing in some of our other product lines. Customers looking for a quality motorhome will now have another option at a much better price point.”
RV Land, built from the ground up just five years ago, is the first dealership Lance Stewart has owned, after 15 years in the business as General Manager of a large dealership. RV Land is located on 10 acres and offers sales, service, parts and both boat and RV storage.
“When it comes to Regency RV dealers, we were looking for quality-minded stores like RV Land that want to offer variety over volume,” Farrer says. "We don’t want to become the biggest supplier in the Class B and Class B+ markets. Our goal is to become one of the best — one of the most unique — when it comes to quality, fit and finish.”
“We do good business all year just by taking care of customers and treating them the right way,” Stewart says. "We have five-star ratings across the board from everybody, which does quite well for us. None of the other area dealers can say that. On all sites including Google, Yelp and Bing, we get great reviews from the sales and service side – everything.”
Regency RV type B coaches are not built on a conventional assembly line but rather one at a time with most components, like the handcrafted cabinetry and upholstery, crafted in-house by hand.
“Interest in our RVs is quickly growing nationwide,” Farrer says. "We’re proud to add RV Land to our select list of dealers and are excited about selling the Regency Class B motorhome in the Austin area."
