Southern RV Acquires 2nd Louisiana Location
Southern RV Supercenter of Bossier City, La., announced today (June 10) that it has acquired Stevens RV Center of Lafayette, La. The acquisition was effective June 1. Both dealerships carry multiple brands of the leading motorhomes, fifth-wheels, travel trailers and popup campers.
Southern RV Supercenter was established in 2000 in Bossier City, Louisiana, and opened a second dealership in Tyler, Texas, in 2007, making it the largest dealer in the tri-state region.
“Our expansion into south Louisiana will strengthen the company’s market penetration in Louisiana and East Texas,” said Southern RV owner Jim Hicks. ”With over 40 years in the RV business, we believe that Stevens RV has the reputation and quality of service and products that creates a good match with the Southern RV organization. We value the RV experience that Stevens RV brings to the table.”
The new Lafayette location is a full-service dealership offering hundreds of new and used RVs for sale. There is also a fully stocked parts department and a 12-bay service facility. It is an authorized warranty repair center for Thor, Forest River, Keystone brands and others. The Lafayette store employs several RVIA/RVDA certified technicians.
RV inventory at the Lafayette location includes Damon, Coachman and Forrester motorhomes; Alpine, Avalanche, Laredo, Fuzion, Jayco, Cardinal and Sandpiper fifth-wheels; and Springdale, Sandpiper, Jayco, Lacrosse and Tracer travel trailers.
The Southern RV Lafayette facility is located two miles north of I-10 on the I-49 frontage road.
