American Family RV recently opened on eight acres at 1259 E. Main St. in Salem, Va.
This story by Tiffany Holland originally appeared in the Roanoke Times.
The full-service dealership sells RVs, trailers and parts and also handles repairs and general services. The business started seven years ago in Chesapeake, and the Salem location is the first expansion. It has room for more than 200 RVs on site.
Owner Layne Rowland and general manager Kevin Thomas said Roanoke’s reputation for outdoors enthusiasts and its lack of a lot of RV retailers led them here.
American Family RV has a unique program for members of the military and emergency first responders, offering them a free pop-up trailer for a weekend. The retailer is open every day except Sunday.
