Buying an RV is not just an ordinary purchase, it’s a way of life, according to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, businessman Doug Ferguson.
His company, Moose Jaw RV, based at 1400 Lakeview Road, only recently opened its doors but already customers are flocking to see what the center has to offer, the Moose Jaw Times-Herald reported.
And there’s certainly plenty for people to see, Ferguson, whose business partner is Keith Farnel, told the Times-Herald.
The business has a year-round indoor studio and will have RVs on display outside in the summer months.
It also offers full-line service, parts and sales as well as rentals, consignments and storage.
“We have a full line of RV, fifth-wheel and tag-alongs. We have approximately 20 units inside right now and inventories arriving daily,” Ferguson said.
“There will also be a nice customer waiting room with television and kids’ toys so they can entertain themselves while mom and dad shop.
“We are not just coming here for a sale. This will be Moose Jaw’s RV store,” Ferguson said. “Moose Jaw had a void here because there was not an RV dealer here.”
Moose Jaw is a city of around 30,000 located 100 miles north of the U.S. border.
Ferguson said RV ownership has increased greatly in the last few years.
“It’s kind of a lifestyle. It’s becoming more and more popular and there’s more and more campsites in our province and we are seeing more and more people move into the province.
“Lots of people are coming with work and they will be buying an RV and staying and working here for the summer in the construction business or oil.
“RV is a lifestyle now and people want good, quality equipment.”
