RV Country Breaks Ground for 8th Dealership

RV Country, formerly Paul Evert’s RV Country, just broke ground on a new sales and service facility in Sparks, Nev., representing the company’s eighth selling location in addition to a stand-alone service facility.

“We just started last Monday so the crew is out there moving dirt now as we build this dealership from the ground up,” said Curt Curtis, president and owner of the chain. “It will have 10 service bays, a parts department and a good-sized sales lot with some indoor sales space as well.”

Curtis noted that the seven-acre site is strategically located next to the Legends Outlet Mall complex in Sparks.

“The new location is directly behind the Scheels sporting goods store which is one of the largest outdoor stores in the world,” he said. “This particular store actually has a Ferris wheel in front and is a real destination place for outdoorsy people.”   

Curtis told that the prime piece of real estate was secured through connections made during the dealership’s RV shows in the area over the past four years.

“It was near where we’ve been holding our shows and we got a good connection with the builder of the 160-acre complex and ended up buying the property and getting it zoned to build an RV dealership,” he said.

Curtis reported the decision to build the new store in Sparks was prompted by the economic vitality of the area.

“We’ve been doing two or three shows a year in the Sparks market and we’ve always done extremely well at these events,” he said. “The growth that’s occurring in the Reno, Sparks area right now, along with the new Tesla battery factory and other major high tech companies is all positive. With this influx of industry growth we think this market will grow exponentially.”    

Curtis said there is also a large towable trailer community in the Sparks area. “We will have a huge selection of trailer and fifth-wheels,” he said, adding that the new outlet will also handle gas and diesel motorhomes.

Currently RV Country’s dealerships are spread across five western states, including Mount Vernon and Fife, Wash.; Coburg, Ore.; Fresno, Calif.; Laughlin, Nev.; Flagstaff and Mesa, Ariz.
