“We are very proud to have Poulsbo RV selling our products,” NeXus RV President Dave Middleton says. “The commitment to the retail customers after the sale and their ability to sell product made our decision to have them represent NeXus in the state of Washington an easy one.”

“We made a special trip out to visit Claude and Dave at NeXus to see for ourselves what was going on,” Poulsbo COO Will Rogers says. “Their products look good and they have some things that will fit into our plans as we continue to grow our business.”

Poulsbo has five locations in the Seattle market and has been a motorhome sales leader in the state for a long time, according to Statistical Surveys, Inc.

“As we planned our wish list of dealers to sell our products when we decided to shift our business from factory direct to a dealer network, Poulsbo RV was on top of that list,” NeXus RV CEO Claude Donati says. “I am excited and eager to deliver our products to this team of professionals so we can offer our products to retail customers in Washington.”

“Our business remains strong and we anticipate continued growth,” Poulsbo RV General Manager Scott Twomey says. “We think taking on a brand like NeXus, which has a compelling story behind it, will assist us in achieving that increase in business.”

NeXus RV will begin selling products to dealerships next week and Poulsbo should be receiving its first shipment in a couple of weeks. NeXus builds units under the brand names of Phantom Class C, Viper Class B+, Wraith Super C, Maybach Gas Class A, Ghost Super C and Bentley Diesel Pusher.
