Which Brand of RV Should I Buy?
Welcome back everyone, we’re so glad you’ve chosen to join us here at the Sellers RV blog. We have been based here in the wonderful town of Lloydminster Saskatchewan, and have been since we started trading way back in 1979, 40 short years ago! Over the years we’ve seen a huge difference in the types of RVs and the available amenities, and we’d honestly tell you it’s all been for the better. Today’s RVs are very much like second homes on wheels, and with summer fast approaching, it’s a great time to come check out the selection at Sellers, your Lloydminster RV dealers.
Sellers RV sales Saskatchewan understand that the sheer choice of RVs available today can be overwhelming, so it’s not surprising that some of the questions we hear most often at Sellers RV are “what are the best RV brands?”, “which RV Brand should I buy?”, and “What RV brands do you recommend?”.
Our usual answer to these questions is generally not as straight forward as many would like to hear. Because of the large number of types of RV and trailer available, as well as the extraordinary variety of amenities and fit and finish available, the best brand of RV for you, is the one that provides what it is you think it is you’re going to need in an RV.
One of the most exciting things about the RV industry today is the resurgence in popularity, and something no one could have predicted is the popularity RVing has found with millennials. In years gone by, the majority of the RV enthusiast demographic were retirees, and RV features were designed to suit primarily this group, but thanks to the fact that RV vacations are ‘trending’, amenities in new RVs are being equipped to suit everyone. You’re still going to find classic features like spacious accommodations and functional storage, but today’s RVs are being delivered with state of the art audio visual systems, gourmet kitchens, and more.
This post is going to be aimed at getting you some more information about the RV brands we carry here at Sellers RV. We will go into some detail about the histories of the RV brands we’re authorized to sell new, and we will also give you more information about the fantastic models they make. So, take your time, read the below, and hopefully, our guide to the RVs for sale at Sellers RV will help you figure out which RV brand suits your needs best.
Jayco Trailers – Saskatchewan Jayco Dealers
Jayco Trailers are one of the true pioneer companies in the RV industry. Dating all the way back to 1968, the company was started by a legend in the travel trailer world, Mr. Lloyd ‘Jay’ Bontrager. Bontrager’s ingenious design for a popup trailer, or tent trailer as they are sometimes known, put his company on the map. Jayco RV’s shop in Middlebury Indiana is still run by the Bontrager family, believe it or not! From humble beginnings, Jayco have reached incredible heights, they currently build over 50 thousand units per year, and across their history they’ve exceeded one million recreational vehicle builds – as such, Jayco are well regarded as a highly trusted brand, they sell basically every kind of RV from tiny tear drops, to giant fifth wheels, and anyone looking for an RV should definitely consider them a contender.
