Total Value RV is the new dealer of Foretravel motorcoaches for the entire Great Lakes Region, the fifth dealer to sign since the Nacogdoches, Texas, high-end motorhome builder was acquired by new management about a year ago.
As a Foretravel dealer, Elkhart, Ind.-based Total Value will serve customers in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin and part of Kentucky.
“We are geared to the Class A market,” said John Whalen, sales manager at Total Value, noting the retailer also handles Tiffin and Damon coaches. “We are positioning ourselves to have our best year since we’ve been in business.”
An investment group, headed by Lyle Reed, assumed control of Foretravel from the Fore family last January.
In 2003, the builder sold or closed five company-owned stores in Texas, Washington, California and Tennessee that it had operated for years as part of its core business strategy and instead established a small network of independent dealers.
