Paterson “has shown a tremendous ability to grow our dealer network, introduce our proprietary brand of RV parts and accessories called RV Traveler’s Choice, and was equally an integral part in launching our first exclusive branded travel trailer,” Board Chairman Don Sneyd says.

In his new role, Paterson plans to continue to build the network of 74 dealerships, strengthen programs and make new alliances within the industry. The company partners with Priority RV Network in the U.S., which includes another 124 dealers.
