The dealership will carry the newest Regency RV Ultra Brougham, National Traveler and Xalta models at its newest location in Sandy.

“We are thrilled to welcome Funtime RV to the Regency RV brand,” Regency RV Western Sales Manager Larry Meredith said. “Their entire team is on board and committed to carrying our quality product line.”

Tim Kipers is Funtime RV’s general manager and has been in the RV business for more than 35 years.

“Our sales staff is very impressed and can truly feel the quality,” Kipers said. “That gives them the conviction when selling Regency RV products.

“We believe the market is and has been growing for years towards this segment,” he said. “Our customers buy Regency RV products because they are truly different. Choosing more quality products is what they are doing now and have been doing for a long time. Regency sets the benchmark that the discriminating customer is looking for.”

Kipers went on to speak to the team’s impression of the Regency difference.

“The finish is truly exceptional,” he said. “The parts are painted before assembly. The cab colors match the rest of the interior. This is a classy coach.”
