The RV Dealers Association on Friday sent out a note to members informing them that Larry McClain, past president of the RV Dealers Association, passed away overnight.
McClain was president of RVDA in 1973-74 and got involved in RVDA by attending the first organizational meeting. He served on the initial board of directors.
He was awarded the James B. Summers award in 1993 and his dealership(s) received the coveted Top Quality Dealer of the Year award in 1998.
“Larry McClain was a key leader in the formation of the National RVDA and a driving force in forging unity among RV dealers. Larry was a terrific businessman who leaves an outstanding legacy in the RV business. Larry was a mentor to many up-and-coming RV dealers and a friend to all who crossed his path,” said RVDA President Phil Ingrassia.
RVDA sends condolences to his sons, Nate and Tod, and the entire McClain families.
