Oregon-based dealership chain Destinations RV Inc. recently closed its Camarillo, Calif., sales operation and it will exit the towables segment, according to “The Register-Guard” of Eugene, Ore.
Destinations RV decided to return to concentrating on the niche it previously served exclusively: high-end motorhomes, Matt Howard, marketing manager for Destinations RV, told The Register-Guard.
The location in Camarillo, north of Los Angeles, opened on Jan. 3, the same day that the Destinations RV location in Fife, Wash., opened. The store in Fife, which is near Tacoma, remains open.
Destinations RV will continue to operate a service center in Camarillo, but it laid-off its nine sales employees in Camarillo on June 5, according to The Register-Guard.
About half of Destination RV’s inventory is high-end motorhomes which, when new, retail for $100,000 and up, Howard said.
“But for the first five months of (this) year, 86% of our sales were high-line (motorhomes). Our business is there and that’s where we need to focus on,” Howard told the newspaper.
