The Recreational Dealer Cooperative Association/Priority RV Network announced it has added Crabtree RV Center of Alma, Ark., to its growing list of dealers.
“Crabtree is the top dealer in western Arkansas and will represent our network in the Fort Smith market,” Priority RV Network executive director Corey Ruzicka said. “Bert Adams is third generation and they’ve been in business since 1950. They exemplify the dealer we want as a member partner in the cooperative.”
The network now consists of 61 dealership groups with 103 locations nationwide. In return, the network obtains products such as retail financing, parts and accessories, finance and insurance, and other products in bulk purchases.
Priority RV Network dealers estimate selling more than 50,000 new and used RVs, and generating more than $2 billion dollars in sales in 2015. All dealers are equal partners and have access to the financials showing where each penny is being spent. The dealers run the network.
“Crabtree will help us with another record-breaking year in sales and profits. Bert and his team do a great job serving RV consumers in Arkansas,” Ruzicka said. “They’ve been doing this for an astounding 65 years,” said Michael Peay, president of the Priority RV Network and Holiday World of Houston, Dallas, League City, Las Cruces, and Willis.
