Despite sales on luxury goods dropping industrywide in recent years, Buddy Gregg RVs and Motor Homes broke ground this month on a series of expansions at its Knoxville, Tenn., dealership.
“We’ve never stopped working to get better at what we do here,” said Matt Cecil, general manager of Buddy Gregg, in a press release. “That’s what this is all about – improvement: not just for Farragut and Knox County who will benefit from the extra tax revenues, but even more so for our loyal customers.”
The release stated that with the expansion Buddy Gregg, founded in 1981, becomes the largest RV dealer in East Tennessee.
The various improvements include “the number and type of RVs we carry. more service bays, detailing and a repair center that can remodel or repair almost any kind of unit,” Cecil said.
Ron Barron, sales manager for the dealer, said, “The current site preparation and expanded parking lot will help create a friendlier customer experience here, and that’s what we’re all about. Now our facility will reflect that.”
“We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Buddy Gregg Motor Homes,” said John Sammut, Newmar vice president of sales and marketing, in a news release. “Buddy Gregg Motor Homes shares Newmar’s vision in terms of quality, value and customer service. They run first-class dealerships and we are happy to have our products at their locations in the Knoxville and Dallas markets.”
Buddy Gregg Motor Homes will have Newmar products at their Lewisville, Texas, and Knoxville, Tenn., locations. In Knoxville, all Newmar motorhome product lines will be represented from the Bay Star gas motorhome to the King Aire diesel bus. The Newmar luxury motorhome line will be at the Lewisville dealership, including Mountain Aire, Essex, and King Aire.
“The management and staff at Buddy Gregg Motor Homes are very excited about becoming a Newmar dealer,” said Brian Griffitt, Buddy Gregg vice president of sales. “In this current market we have found new and promising opportunities to capitalize on available resources to benefit our customers, employees, and business partners. We are offering excellent products from an excellent company, Newmar, who like us, firmly believes in taking care of their customers at any and all levels.”
