image001Buddy G. Gregg, president and founder of Buddy Gregg Motor Homes Inc., died at his home in Texas on Wednesday (Dec. 30).

Gregg and his wife, Carole, opened their first dealership in Little Rock, Ark., in 1984. In 1986 they moved the dealership to one of  its current locations in Knoxville, Tenn. For almost three decades Buddy Gregg Motor Homes sold and serviced RVs to individuals and businesses across North America, according to a statement from the company.

Gregg was considered an innovator and industry leader, and his reputation for quality service before and after the sale made him a hallmark in the recreational vehicle business.

At the height of the RV business Gregg had dealerships in Oregon, Florida, Texas and Tennessee.

As a perennial recipient of the top 10 dealer award from Monaco Coach Corp. and Country Coach Inc., Gregg earned a reputation as a high volume and high quality service dealer. During his career Gregg sold or serviced over 100,000 recreational vehicles.

Gregg is survived by his wife, son Gregory, daughter Marla, son-in-law Brian Griffitt, two grandsons and mother-in-law Dorothy Williams.

    With the passing of Buddy Gregg, we have lost a giant in the RV industry. Throughout most of the last two decades, the locations operated by Buddy were unique in their ability to sell and service million-dollar bus conversion motorhomes from within a dealership environment. Buddy was simply the best at what he did.

    as someone in the rv finance industry for over 12 years, I had a chance to deal with the Buddy Gregg dealerships on a daily basis. Their dealerships were always top notch with top finance personnel. My condolences to the Gregg family on this loss
