The RVDA of Canada is hoping to keep its dealer’s products wired by entering into a new endorsement partnership with Stealth Enterprises, adding Stealth Enterprise’s after-market portable Wi-Fi products to its slate of endorsed products, according to an association press release.
“This Wi-Fi system is the technology of the future and is the way that the industry is going,” says Jean-François Lussier, RVDA of Canada Chairman. “With more millenials entering the RV industry, the need for reliable, cost effective service has become mandatory. Our new partnership with Stealth Enterprises will ensure that our RV Consumers can stay connected while they enjoy their RV experience.”
The Stealth Wi-Fi system is a powerful receiver operating on its own private network, ending net traffic, using Wi-Fi hotspots on a mobile device and expensive data overages, the release states. The system provides an 80 percent stronger signal compared to using a cellular device to get online, and should not slow down with multiple users.
“We are very happy to enter into this Partnership with the RVDA of Canada. It’s become increasingly clear that more and more people place a strong value on the availability of internet access whether for work, play, entertainment or all of the above,” states Bradly Morrison, President & CEO Stealth Enterprises Inc. “Many people make their travel decision based on the availability of the Wi-Fi services and our product has the ability to provide a greater sense of freedom by meeting the current needs of our consumers.”
The Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) of Canada is a national, volunteer federation of provincial and regional RVDA associations which exists to protect and promote the interests and welfare of RV Dealers across Canada in order to enable the industry to maximize its potential.
