RV Retailer has announced that Motor Home Specialist (MHS) was the No. 1 seller of new motorhomes by a single dealership in the United States for the eighth consecutive year in 2020, as reported by Statistical Surveys Inc. (“SSI”). Motor Home Specialist retails new and used motor homes from its flagship 80-acre RV dealership facility located in Alvarado, Texas, in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. MHS was the first dealership purchased by RV Retailer in 2018, and since then RV Retailer has grown to 54 stores in 15 states with recently announced acquisitions.
Jon Ferrando, CEO and president of RV Retailer, said, “We have built a great partnership with Donny O’Banion since acquiring MHS from the O’Banion family in 2018. I am proud of Donny O’Banion and the entire MHS team of dedicated associates in Texas for continuing its run as the No. 1 motorhome dealer in the United States for eight consecutive years. We have continued to invest in the high-quality premium motorhome mix at MHS across a wide range of brands offered by MHS from its best-in-class facility.”
Added Ferrando, “RV Retailer is fully committed to the motorhome business, it is an important segment for us and we have grown our motor home business significantly. In fact, last year our new motorhome unit sales growth rate over 2019 was seven times higher than the U.S. industry growth rate (as reported by SSI).”
“I am thrilled that we were able to continue our reign for the eighth year in a row as the largest new motorhome dealer in the United States. We couldn’t achieve our industry-leading sales without the dedication of all our associates at MHS and the support of our manufacturer partners,” said Donny O’Banion, president of Motor Home Specialist. “I’m proud to be a partner with Jon Ferrando and the RV Retailer team which has provided us the support and resources we need to continue our dominance in the motorhome category. We were pleased to retail over 2,000 new and used units last year.”
