I have been working in Richmond IN this year and if any one of you out there know Richmond IN, they know of 2 very large RV dealers there.
Tom Raper RV, A very big dealer….. and Best Buy RV.
Well Best Buy RV is no longer. They had a very large new showroom, 3 acres under one roof, a large parts repair center in Richmond and a very large repair center near Springfield Ohio. They went under about 3 to 4 weeks ago. I thought they just closed up the big show room but the entire place is closed in all locations.
They are now out of business and all TT, MH’s and fiver’s are gone….They where a very large dealership. Where did all those campers go?? Good question.
They even have a special message on there web site for service to there prior customers.
I stopped into Best Buy this summer, actually to look at trailer A frames on different brands, but you end up talking to a salesmen and soon more talk. They considered Richmond to be the RV sales capital of IN. While Tom Raper is still here and the small guy selling campers and modular homes, I do not know if that once proclaimed title is still valid.
I know the dealer I bought our new Sunline from in 2004 up in MI (Ferris RV in Cold Water MI) is no longer and it seems we are loosing both RV manufactures and dealers at an alarming pace this year.
Sign of the time it seems. How many of you good Sunline folks have had the dealer you bought your coach from go under?
