California-based Class A motorhome manufacturer Rexhall Industries Inc. has opened a service center in Arizona and reached agreements with three dealerships in that state to sell its units.
Rexhall’s actions were in response to the bankruptcy filing earlier this year by RV Supercenter, a Phoenix area dealership. The RV Supercenter bankruptcy left Rexhall with 80 unsold units.
On Wednesday (Oct. 25), Rexhall reached agreements with three Arizona dealerships: RV Outlet Super Mall of Arizona; Desert Country RV and RV 101.
RV Outlet will represent all Rexhall lines in Bull Head City “and the river markets in Arizona,” according to Bill Rex, president and CEO of Rexhall. RV Outlet also will sell Rexhall units from locations in Laughlin and Las Vegas, Nev.
Desert County will sell RexAir, Anthem and American Clipper units of the Phoenix/Mesa area.
RV 101 will partner with Rexhall’s new subsidiary, Price One RV, to sell and service Rexhall’s Aerbus, RoseAir and Vision units in Mesa, Ariz., beginning Nov. 1. RV 101’s owner will be the general manager of Price One RV, Rex said.
Price One RV will be located on four acres with 20,000 square feet of space under roof. Rex believes the property was purchased at a price “we believe to be under market value.”
So far, RV Outlet, Desert Country and RV 101 have retailed a little more than half of the 80 units Rexhall repurchased as a result of the RV Supercenter bankruptcy. Rex believes the remainder of the repurchased units will be sold before Dec. 31.
