Classified ad site RV Trader.com, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has released “Get Best Price” – a new option available for dealer inventory listings.
According to a press release, the feature assists dealers with map pricing and “increases the likelihood RV shoppers and buyers will interact with dealers on the site.”
Dealers can activate this free product in their Inventory Management Tool (IMT) and list a main asking price and a second reduced price on their units. Once completed, only the main asking price will appear online to consumers, along with a “Get Best Price” button.
When a consumer visiting RV Trader.com selects “Get Best Price” for a unit, a form will be displayed for the user to complete. An e-mail will then be generated automatically and sent to the potential buyer with the reduced price.
“Dealers have expressed a great deal of interest in this feature, and we worked diligently with our product development team to ensure it remained a top priority,” said Tim Custer, general manager of RV Trader. “Over 430,000 leads were generated in 2012 on RV Trader.com, and we hope this new feature makes dealers even more successful in 2013. We couldn’t be more excited to launch ‘Get Best Price’ just as the RV shopping and buying season kicks off.”

RV Trader.com, a division of Dominion Enterprises, is reporting over 20 million mobile page views in 2012, representing a 191% increase in tablet page views and 259% increase in mobile page views over the same time the previous year.
The RV classified ads company said that the results “forecast opportunities for audience expansion and will greatly impact the way RV buyers and sellers meet and interact.” RV Trader.com generated over 430,000 e-mail and phone leads in 2012, and averaged nearly 40 million ad views last year.
“One of our top priorities is providing the best experience for RV shoppers and buyers using mobile devices,” said Tim Custer, general manager of RV Trader. “We also want to drive maximum results for our advertisers and dealers. We are investing heavily in the mobile space to ensure long-term success of our content and relationships with our customers.”
RV Trader offers tablet (t.rvtrader.com) and mobile (m.rvtrader.com) site options which, when combined, make up approximately 30% of the total website traffic. The company said that represents a significant spike from the 10% of traffic that was mobile less than one year ago.
The release stated, “The statistics are rapidly beginning to favor mobile device usage over desktop, and the acceleration is only expected to continue. It is projected that more consumers will access the internet from a mobile device than from a computer by the year 2014. Due to this unmistakable influx of mobile users and evident growth potential, RV Trader is also aggressively looking at mobile application opportunities in the smart phone marketplace.”
These various forms of mobile media provide RV Trader consumers with instant accessibility to all available RV listings, dealerships and pricing.

RV Trader, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has launched a tablet-optimized website, according to a press release.
With no application needed, users can experience full-screen photo viewing, searching and refining, as well as pinch-to-zoom options – all within the browser.

RV Trader also reported that the company is in the midst of record mobile growth. From December 2011 to January 2012, mobile pageviews increased 75% on RV Trader.com, and mobile visits increased 77%, pushing mobile to over 1 million pageviews. Approximately 10% of traffic to the RV Trader website is mobile, and of that 10%, 62% of traffic is coming from a tablet device, specifically the iPad.
According to Tim Custer, general manager of RV Trader, “We know this number will only continue to grow as more and more people access the Internet from mobile and tablet devices than ever before. It is critical we continue to learn how customers are accessing classified information on the Internet and offer them solutions to improve their experiences on our sites. The future of browsing is on the tablet, especially for RVers on the go.”

RVT.com, a leading Internet classified ad site for new and used RVs for sale, will hold its 4th annual Harley Giveaway for RV dealers. Participants can enter to win a 2011 Harley-Davidson FXS motorcycle online at RVT.com/Harley or at booth #815 during the RVIA National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., Nov. 29-Dec. 1.
The drawing for the free 2011 Harley will be held at the RVT.com booth at the Kentucky Exposition Center on Dec. 1, the final day of the trade show.
Shawn Friesen, RVT.com director of sales and marketing, said his company gives away a Harley to RV dealers at the national trade show every year “to reinforce what the RVT.com site has to offer dealers and the RV industry – high performance, easy navigation and an outstanding vehicle for attracting attention.”
Friesen said that RVT.com will also unveil its social media marketing program for RV dealers. RVT.com’s Social Engagement Marketing (SEM) program provides RV dealers with complete blog writing service, Facebook Page set-up and management, Twitter account management and Advanced Google Adwords management.
“RV dealers are busy enough trying to move their inventory without having to become proficient at social media, which takes an extraordinary amount of time and specialized knowledge,” said Friesen. “For a flat monthly fee, we can perform all those duties for RV dealers while they reap the rewards that a robust social media marketing campaign can deliver.”
Friesen also announced that RVT.com is now offering free advertising for For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) listings. FSBO RV sellers can also choose a paid listing with visibility upgrades or the site’s most popular option, the Until Sold listing.
