The new dealers are B&B RV in Denver; Bob Ledford’s RV in Greer, S.C.; Parkside RV in Newfoundland, Canada; and Nielson RV in St. George, Utah.

SylvanSport’s Vice President of Sales, Earl Hunter, said: “It’s been exciting to expand our dealer base across North America because we know it means more consumers will have an opportunity to discover our award-winning GO Adventure Camper and get a true immersion into the natural world.”

The expansion is credited in part to the popularity of the GO Adventure Camper.

“The SylvanSport GO is special because it elevates the camping experience for outdoor enthusiasts who still want to get into nature with a tent, but are looking for a more comfortable and enjoyable experience,” said Scott Nielson of Nielson RV.
