La Mesa RV Earns ‘San Diego’s Best’ Distinction

August 26, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

                    La Mesa RV Center, one of the nation’s largest multi-location RV dealerships, has been selected “San Diego’s Best RV Sales and Service Company” by readers in a San Diego Union Tribune poll.

According to a news release, this is the second year in a row that the dealership has been named to the honor. La Mesa RV opened for business in 1972 during the height of the oil crisis that led to skyrocketing gas prices, gas shortages and rationing. It wasn’t the best of times to start a company that sold products that required the use of gasoline but Jim Kimbrell, founder and CEO, had a vision and knew that Americans still wanted to get out, travel and explore the country.

The company can trace its roots to a facility in La Mesa, Calif., a suburb of San Diego. Since 1997, the company’s San Diego location has been situated in Kearny Mesa off Highway 52. La Mesa RV continues to grow counting over 1,000 employees in four states.

The San Diego location serves a dual purpose as both a sales and service location, and corporate headquarters. Additionally, the company has stores in Davis, Calif.; Mesa, Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma and Quartzsite, Ariz.; Albuquerque, N.M.; and Sanford, Fort Myers and Port Saint Lucie, Fla.

April 8, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

In a continuing sign of economic recovery, La Mesa RV Center, headquartered in San Diego, is expanding its purchase of used RV inventory for resale at its 11 locations across the country. According to a press release, purchases are being made from individual RVers as well as from other RV dealers across the nation.

“Our sales department has experienced an uptick in business which is now putting strains on our inventory levels,” stated Tim Ralph, La Mesa RV’s wholesale buyer. “Due to this sales growth, we are now searching for trades from other dealers that may have typically been wholesaled or sent to auction since the unit may have not fit the dealer’s typical sales profile.”

Currently, La Mesa RV Center is in the market to purchase clean, 2005 and newer motorhomes and trailers. La Mesa RV said it is “uniquely equipped to handle the purchase transaction in a professional, timely manner.” Once the agreement has been struck to purchase a unit, it is paid for with verified funds and picked up at the owner’s or dealer’s location by a La Mesa RV driver.

Consumers and dealers may contact Ralph directly at (858) 522-8102 or (619) 972-7509 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific), Monday through Friday.
