RVBusiness Magazine recently named local dealership Byerly RV, Eureka, as one of its 2017 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America.
“Byerly RV has always been about offering the highest quality customer experience in all aspects of the RV experience: sales, service, parts, and rental. This philosophy started with our manufacturing roots, our development into an RV parts resource for customers, and continues with our low pressure/high value sales pitch,” said Byerly RV Owner and President Russ Patton.
“We have consistently been a voice within the industry through our contributions to the RV Learning Center and our long-term relationships with manufactures. And we have always been proud to support and strengthen our local and state RVDAs,” he added.
RVBusiness asked recreation vehicle manufacturers to nominate dealers across the United States and Canada who exemplify best practices and excellence in their field. Nominees were invited to fill out comprehensive applications describing business aspects including customer service and satisfaction, employee training, financial planning, marketing and community involvement.
An independent panel of industry experts convened at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., the unofficial “RV Capital of the World,” to select the RVB Top 50 from nominated dealers who submitted applications.
Program coordinators expanded the judges’ panel this year, bringing perspectives from even more areas of RV-industry business specialization. The extra hands also helped make lighter work of the extensive applications received, according to Sherman Goldenberg, publisher of RVBusiness magazine and founder of the Top 50 program.
“As a whole, our applying dealers not only gave us more data this year, but they also went to great lengths to tell us their stories and let their personalities shine through,” Goldenberg said. “It was a tough job for the judges to narrow it down. Those who made the cut should be very proud of that achievement.”
The 2017 class of RVBusiness Top 50 dealers were honored at a Nov. 8 awards reception in front of an all-industry standing room only audience of over 400 during the 2017 RV Dealers Association (RVDA) International Convention/Expo at Bally’s Las Vegas, presented in cooperation with the RVDA of both the U.S. and Canada.
“It was an honor and a privilege to be recognized among the most reputable names in the RV industry,” Patton said. “The RVDA conference has always been a great source of knowledge and training for our staff. The experience of being celebrated among the elite RV companies on the continent will be something we will cherish for a long time.”
