Pete’s RV Center of New England in South Burlington, Vt., opened up its 2011 sales event season with a weekend open house Jan. 14-16 and reports that sales were up 25% over last year’s event.
Even with a major snowstorm hitting the area a couple days prior and another looming, Pete’s RV enjoyed higher attendance than expected for this time of year, according to a news release. Visitors came from throughout northern New England, New York and the province of Quebec.
“We are very pleased with the outcome of our first sales weekend.” said Dave McGinnis, co-owner and treasurer. “It’s great to know that even though it’s cold and snowy outside, there’s a bunch of people already planning for spring camping.”
Along with a steady flow of foot traffic throughout the weekend, the dealership also received many phone calls and e-mails from folks who couldn’t make the event. Units sold were a mix of new and used popups, travel trailers, fifth-wheels and used motorhomes.
As an exclusive Keystone RV Co. dealer, Pete’s RV showcased new 2011 models such as the Sprinter 255RKS, Cougar High Country 296BHS and Montana 3580RL.
