“With Michael’s 30-plus years’ experience in the industry, he will be an excellent asset to our current dealers and customers in this region,” says Darin Nelson, (pictured left in photo) head of the Outdoors RV sales team. “Additionally, he will assist in selecting key dealer distribution points in the Southwest, Texas and Oklahoma markets. “Our growth in the Pacific Northwest with our “Mountain Tough” RVs has shown the buyers really like our quality and durability,” Nelson says.

Outdoors RV's brands have been among the top brands customers are trading in their RVs for, Nelson says. With large number of entry level buyers over the past few years, there a strong market for buyers to trade up, he says. He cites Statistical Surveys research indicating Outdoors RV’s strong penetration in the West.

“The market is flooded with entry-level products that gave our wonderful RV public a chance to realize how great family getaways can be with an RV,” Nelson says.
