Lance Camper Mfg. Sees Surge in Sales After Initiation of Plant Tours

Tue Aug 29, 2017

Lancaster, Calif. - After attending a tour of Lance’s high tech manufacturing facility in Lancaster, California, records show that 95 percent of attendees end up purchasing a Lance Ultra-Light Travel Trailer, Truck Camper or Toy Hauler, according to a company press release.

Starting in 1983, Lance now hosts more than 500 participants annually, coming from all over North America as well as internationally.

“At every opportunity, we encourage our customers to ‘Discover The Lance Difference’ for themselves and there is no better way than to take a tour of our facilities where you have an opportunity to meet the folks who design and build our RVs and see first-hand the precision that results in the very high level of quality experienced in a Lance product,” Lance Director of Marketing Bob Rogers says. “It’s the best sales tool we have.

"We wanted to step our game up a bit during this experience for our customers. This year, we have added individual adjustable hearing devices allowing everyone to clearly hear the tour guides information regardless of the level of background noise. All tour participants also receive a nice bag loaded with Lance goodies as a parting gift and reminder of their day with us.”

Lance will also soon be adding to the tour a view of its new 60,000 square-foot CNC and lamination facility - on target to open this fall.

Tours are held on select Wednesdays, with the exception of holidays and staff availability. Those interested can sign up on the website or by phone at 661-949-3322 ext. 227.
