Tampa, Fla.-area megadealership Lazydays RV SuperCenter had its best-ever first quarter in sales revenue and number of units delivered, according to Don Wallace, founder and president.
Lazydays’ first quarter sales revenue totaled around $264 million, about $28 million more than the first quarter of 2003, and it delivered 3,063 motorhomes and towable RVs to customers, 293 more than it did in the first three months of last year.
Lazydays, which recorded over $750 million in sales in 2003, has a goal of $1 billion in annual sales, and posting more than $250 million in sales in a single quarter is a big step toward that goal, Wallace said.
Unlike dealers in colder climates, the first three months of the year usually represent the busiest quarter for Florida RV dealers. The summer months tend to the be quietest time of the year for them, the opposite of what dealers in the North experience.
