Longtime dealer North Trail RV Center has opened a new location in Margate on Florida’s Atlantic Coast and is currently holding a grand opening event that runs through March 8.
“It’s been fantastic,” said Don Sisler, store manager for the new outlet. “We probably had 300 to 350 people through here over the weekend. Sales were very good.”
The dealership sits on 5½ acres, located three miles from I-95, and features a 4,800-square-foot showroom. Sisler reported that RV service is also planned at the location. North Trail, founded in 1986, is headquartered in Fort Myers.
In conjunction with the grand opening, North Trail announced that it will be adding a full line of Fleetwood motorhomes to its product offerings.
“Customer demand for RVs in South Florida is still very strong, even in the current economic landscape,” said owner Albert J. Erp. “Increasing our footprint in the region will allow us to address the unmet demand left open by our competition. In addition, we decided to carry Fleetwood’s full line of motorhomes because they are high value, high quality products that meet all of our customers’ needs before and after the sale.”
Sisler agreed that the timing was right.
“A lot of companies are sitting still or going backward,” he said. “We see it as a time to go forward. We want to let people know the industry is still OK.”
Sisler said the company’s reputation and its commitment to customers were also key in launching the new store.
“We’ve been around for 23 years, and people know we are going to treat them right,” he said. “We still consider everybody who comes through that door as our guests.”
