Pikes Peak Traveland RV Changes Ownership

Performance Brokerage Services

Performance Brokerage Services announced the sale of Pikes Peak Traveland RV in Colorado Springs, Colorado, from the Biles family to Jeff Taylor.

Pikes Peak Traveland RV was established in 1968 and purchased by Randy Biles in 1982. For 40 years, Biles helped transcend the RV industry, the company said, and remained a pillar until his retirement in 2023. In 2019, Biles was inducted into the RV/Motorhome Hall of Fame. He was a chairman of the RV Dealer Association (RVDA), board member for the Mike Molino RV Learning Center and president of the Colorado Recreational Vehicle Association. His son, Tim Biles, grew up in the business with his father for over 30 years. Overseeing the day-to-day operations with his wife, Traci Biles, they continued the company culture with an emphasis on customer relationships and community involvement.

Tim Biles, president of Pikes Peak Traveland RV, said, “We would like to thank Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Service for helping us sell our dealership and for identifying a buyer who is going to carry on my father’s legacy by taking care of the customers and being a staple in the community. Jesse was more than a broker. He genuinely cared about the outcome and treated us like family. Through the sale, Jesse was always available to help with negotiations, moral support and talking me off ledges. Jesse has extensive knowledge in dealership brokerage, and his strength is in buy-sell negotiations. This resulted in a win-win for my family and the new owners. Thank you to Jesse for his hard work in helping our sale be a success. If you are considering a sale of your business, we highly recommend Performance Brokerage Services as they are industry experts, highly professional, and trustworthy.”

Pikes Peak Traveland RV is situated on the corner of U.S. Route 24 (via Platte Avenue) and Wooten Road, located less than 15 minutes away from downtown Colorado Springs. Pikes Peak Traveland RV is a member of the Route 66 RV Network, the largest RV dealer network in North America.

Over the last five years, Performance Brokerage Services has advised on the sale of over 300 dealerships. Jesse Stopnitzky, co-owner and director of the RV division for Performance Brokerage Services, and Bruce Marcia, partner, were the exclusive advisors for this transaction.

Stopnitzky commented, “It was a true honor to have represented Tim and Traci Biles in the sale of their family’s business, as the Biles family are pioneers in the RV industry with a deep history of RV advocacy. We wish Tim and Traci an enjoyable and relaxing retirement. We are also proud to have successfully identified the ideal purchaser in Jeff Taylor, who was a gentleman throughout the entire process and is sure to carry on the 40-year legacy established by Randy Biles. We wish Jeff tremendous success with the acquisition.”

Jeff Taylor, president of Pikes Peak RV and industry veteran with over 30 years of automotive experience, stated, “We had the pleasure of working with Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services on the purchase of our RV dealership in Colorado Springs. We had known of their firm for many years in the automotive industry and as expected, the experience was first-class. Jesse was highly responsive and professional, and assisted with anything we needed. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”

The Biles Family was represented by Steve Mulliken of Mulliken Weiner Berg & Jolivet in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
