“We have been looking forward to getting the NeXus RV product on the ground,” Poulsbo RV Chief Operations Officer Will Rogers says. “I was impressed with the vision of Claude and Dave and like the attention to quality when I visited their plant. Our staff is excited about the opportunity and have been anticipating its arrival. We plan on having it represented at each of our five locations.
