“We wanted to refresh our logo and tag line and use them help tell part of the Challenger story going forward,’’ says Challenger Door President Merlin Yoder. “The logo brings a fresh look, and the revised tag line speaks to the values Challenger Door strives to deliver to everyone.”

Challenger Door’s new tagline is:

“Experience: Putting our experience to work for every customer; so they have a great experience with every Challenger product, every time.

Service: Following through with every customer to ensure a great experience for them from start to finish.

Partnership: Making sure every employee, customer, and vendor knows the value they bring to Challenger Door.”

“We want to do a better job of telling our story,” Yoder says, “and the new logo and tag line are a couple of small but visible ways we’re able to start taking steps toward doing that more consistently within the RV community.”
