The electronic version of the September issue of RV News is up on the website.
In this issue, we take you to Nashville, Tennessee for the 2017 Jayco Dealer Homecoming that occurred during the path of totality of the solar eclipse. Jayco unveiled new models, disseminated new ideas and introduced new facilities and new floorplans that are making their way into the new year.
Then, we look at Valterra’s new growth strategies, as the company has acquired eight other companies in recent years to broaden the product offerings and establish itself as even more of a leader in the industry.
The REV Recreation Group has revived some of its former lines that were in hibernation in order to become a comprehensive motorhome manufacturer with innovative product offerings in each motorhome category.
Further along, we analyze RV windows, which have evolved over the years into a crucial, innovative market innovation which offers a plentiful amount of designs, features and options for today’s RVers and we talk with some of the leaders in that category.
Finally, we take you to Texas, where Longhorn RV decided to expand its automobile dealership into an RV dealership. In less than three months, the RV dealership has increased sales and become one of the leaders in the large state of Texas.
