Regency RV, will be displaying its new Texas-made Xalta Class B motorhome to dealers and consumers at the Houston RV Show from Feb. 7 to 11 in the Toppers Camping Center RV display.
“This is first time we exhibited our new Xalta series motorhomes to dealers and consumers in the state of Texas,” says Regency RV National Sales Manager, Dymon Farrer. Regency RV manufactures the Xalta in Fort Worth, Texas.
A Texas tradition since 1965, the Houston RV Show is Texas’ largest RV Expo with more than 600 Recreational Vehicles – including motorhomes, travel trailers, tent campers, fifth wheels and van conversions, along with recreational vehicle-related vendors representing campgrounds, resorts, parks and RV supplies.
Farrer says Regency is looking forward to showcasing the Xalta motorhome with its Texas dealer of record at the show, Toppers Camping Center.
“We are putting our best foot forward in our home state and hope to receive feedback on what we are doing well and how we may improve going forward,” he says.
Larry Troutt, general manager of Toppers Camping Center, says that Regency has an aggressive outlook on keeping up with the competition, while maintaining a conservative outlook on pricing.
“Partnering with Regency RV is another step in furthering the full Go RVing experience,” Troutt says. “Having a unit that holds up to the competition with a more reasonable MSRP and to know that ours looks way better, makes us confident we have a very good chance to do real well with Regency products. To be with a Texas manufacturer is a big deal to us and we think it will be a big deal for our customers.”
Regency RV products are not built on a conventional assembly line but rather one at a time, Farrer explains. “Regency RV and Wayne Davis are a select group of highly skilled craftsmen, with a 50-year reputation restoring classic American muscle cars and exotic automobiles for the most discriminating buyers worldwide. The history of the company also includes building thousands of Regency custom conversion vans and trucks.
