Family-owned RV dealership Dixie RV SuperStores is observing its 35th anniversary. Since opening in 1984, the company has grown to five locations across the Gulf South with more than 350 employees. The company serves more than 10,000 customers annually.
“Our continued success and our ability to grow and revolutionize the RV Industry as it is today, is because of our dedicated and hardworking employees,” Dixie RV Superstores CEO Greg Lala says. “We consider our employees like family and are committed to their retention, development and training to provide exceptional customer care and deliver personalized service.”
Instead of a traditional sales team, the company has instituted a dedicated team of highly educated RV outfitters who practice a listen-first approach in order to offer the most beneficial guidance in finding the best RV for the customer’s individual lifestyle and goals.
“From luxurious motorhomes to adventurous travel trailers and fifth wheels, customers can shop some of the most trusted RV lines in the industry at competitive prices that reflect the finest quality and class,” Dixie President and COO Stephen Guidry says. “We are proud to offer our customers brands like Tiffin, Airstream, Heartland, Jayco, Grand Design, Keystone and many more.”
