Taking place Sunday evening through Wednesday, the event showcased Jayco’s new models and presented awards to its top-selling dealer partners at the Venetian Convention Center and Expo. What started off with a power outage on Monday morning turned into a positive experience for dealers to connect with the Jayco team.

“If we’re not your best partner, tell me why,” Walters said of the company during its award ceremony. Jayco’s most prestigious recognition, the Founder’s Award, was given to TerryTown RV of Grand Rapids, Michigan, with representatives Connie, Gabrielle and Tom Selvius in attendance.
