Fifth-wheel hitch supplier PullRite reported that dealers attending the Northern Wholesale and Bell Industries distributor shows last week not only had positive outlooks for 2012, but also purchased product at record-setting levels.
According to a press release, several dealers offered positive reviews on PullRite’s product offerings, including:
• Mick Ferkey, owner of Greeneway RV in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis.: “We’ve proven over the last couple of years that our customers are choosing to buy higher quality American made hitches over cheaper imports. Greeneway sells PullRite’s quality first, rather than offering cheaper hitches that have proven to be disappointing to our customers in the past.”
• Paul and Mark Doughty, owners of North Point RV, Dick’s RV, and Willies RV in Minnesota and Wisconsin: “We really don’t see why we’d sell anyone a manual slider hitch when PullRite offers a higher quality, fully automatic slider hitch at a price that’s so close to those lower quality designs. We know our customers will be happier using the automatic design, and will have fewer frustrations and problems using them.”
• Pat and Mike Noble, owners of Owatonna, Minn.-based based Noble RV: “We’ve seen our sales team enthusiastically selling our customers on the benefits of higher quality features of PullRite, and know that customers who have better products with better experiences are more likely to return to buy again.”
Steve Koehn, national sales manager for Mishawaka, Ind.-based PullRite noted several new products from PullRite were resonating with dealers and consumers, including a new OE Series hitch that fits Ford trucks fitted with the factory prep option and an adapter letting B&W gooseneck hitch owners use PullRite’s SuperGlide hitches for towing fifth-wheels.
