Peterson Industries Inc., manufacturer of the Excel line of high-end fifth-wheel RVs, has established its first dealership in Canada.
According to a press release, Advantage Trailer World in Edmonton, Alberta, took delivery on their first unit in May and has since received several Excel fifth-wheels.
Advantage owner Ted Trowsse noted that Excel’s guarantee against plumbing freezing down to zero degrees was an attractive feature in the Canadian marketplace.
Family-owned Peterson also recently held a reunion for Excel owners at its headquarters in Smith Center, Kan. The gathering drew campers from 24 states, including 434 Excel RVs and 868 people.
Peterson said many of the owners were members of Excel state camping clubs, which hosted several special events during the reunion.
Other activities included: Excel factory tours, walking tour of the town, a craft show, golf, campfire gatherings, along with a display of new 2007 Excel RVs. In addition, a roster of RV seminars were available for attendees.
