Wilkins Recreational Vehicles Inc. recently held a grand opening for a new “destination dealership” in Bath, N.Y., located on 15 acres off Interstate 86.
The third generation, family-owned dealership relocated operations from a 9,000-square-foot facility in nearby Hornell into the new 15,000-square-foot sales and service center. Wilkins had been operating in the Hornell area since 1936.
The $5 million project includes a 14,000-square-foot climate controlled showroom, 20 indoor service bays, 3,000-square-foot parts and accessory store, 1,000-square-foot employee training facility, a spacious customer lounge and eight full hookup campsites for service customers.
“This project has been a long time dream of the Wilkins family,” said owner Brian Wilkins. “We’ve been in the business for 70 years, taken over by my parents in the 60’s and I purchased it a couple years ago,”
Wilkins said the dealership will be adding on to its staff for the upcoming spring selling season.
