Nexus RV LLC, a factory-direct manufacturer of Class C, Super C and Class B+ motorhomes based in Elkhart, Ind., announced another location for a factory showroom. Nexus RV will have products on display in Fort Worth, Texas, and it plans to keep growing locations in addition to its current remote facilities in Clearwater, Fla., and Temecula, Calif..
“Our strategy to give customers an opportunity to touch and feel our products is working”, said Claude Donati, president and co-founder of the company, which started in 2010. “We have been able to gain many customers through our factory-direct showroom in Temecula, Calif. The customers appreciate the low-pressure, leisurely experience they have when they enter our showroom. Our sales staff remotely guides the customers through the products and answers any product questions.”
Donati said Nexus RV has taken a page out of Tesla Motors Inc.’s approach by offering strategically located showrooms throughout the country.
According to Nexus, they plan to open an additional five showrooms over the next year. “The future locations for those showrooms will be in markets where our customers would support the investment,” explained Dave Middleton, vice president and co-founder.
“We will have our products in Fort Worth by the end of September,“ said Middleton.

Nexus RV LLC has named Dave Middleton as vice president of the new company.
Nexus RV, currently based at Innovation Park on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., will manufacture Class C and B+ motorhomes, according to a news release.
“Dave brings 15 years of experience in the sales and marketing of some of the most unique products in the industry,” said Claude Donati, president. “Dave is one of the best pure sales people in the RV industry; his approach to sales is high energy and will be a major factor in our success.”
Middleton spent most of the last 15 years in various management positions in the motorhome division at Gulf Stream Coach Inc. in nearby Nappanee, Ind.
“We are in the final stages of selecting our facility and expect to have product in the market by the first quarter of 2011,” Middleton stated, ” I am excited to be part of such an exciting venture. During my many years in the business, I have learned a great deal about selling and I understand the needs of the customer. I look forward to building Nexus RV on the foundation that the retail customer is the most important person in the whole process. Everything we do at Nexus will focus on the retail customer’s RV experience.”
