A new dealership, The Great Outdoors RV Center, recently opened in Mapleton, Iowa, a village located southeast of Sioux City, Iowa, and north of Omaha, Neb.
The owners are Glenn Marsh and Durene Petersen and they inventory travel trailers and fifth-wheels built by K-Z Inc. of Shipshewana, Ind. Their inventory includes K-Z’s Sportsmen, New Vision, Coyote and Frontier brands.
Marsh and Petersen have studied the RV industry the last two years and attended the industry’s National Trade Show in Louisville twice. They also attended a three-day RV service course in Indiana recently.
During their study of the industry, Marsh and Petersen discovered there are around 1,000 RV campsites within a 45- to 50-mile radius of Mapleton offering many recreational activities.
In addition to sales and service, The Great Outdoors RV also offers RV rentals and a secure storage area.
