“We are thrilled to welcome Valley RV Supercenter to the Regency RV brand,” says Larry Meredith, western sales manager for Regency RV. “Their entire team is engaged and excited about carrying our product line.”

Tony Weeldreyer and Ron Claudon are the owners of Valley RV Supercenter, which has been in business since 2009.

“We had a void in our current lineup and didn’t offer a true Class B,” Weeldreyer says. “Our search for impeccable quality, reputation and outstanding service led us to Regency. Our sales team is enthused to carry the Regency brands. The finish is truly exceptional.

“We have quality products at our dealership and the handcrafted and distinctive details in the Regency speak for themselves,” he says. “Regency has been very nice to work with so far. Even though we have just taken them on, we are confident they have a product that is going to show for itself.”
