ARTS RV has concluded another successful year, helping thousands of customers enjoy their travel and camping experiences with recreational vehicles. In honor of the 36 years of operation under the ARTS RV banner, they are celebrating with a tent full of specials and free hot dogs and drinks beginning August 20 through August 23, 2010.
Art Swenson took over a small camping and recreation vehicle repair shop in 1959 called Easy Camping. His success repairing pop-ups and travel trailers led to offering sales and consignment sales of many sizes and types of RV’s, as well as truck caps and accessories. If you have ever been in a campground you’ll appreciate the need for useful, specialized camping products required for outdoor enjoyment.
ARTS RV, as named in 1974, was the first and only non-RV selling service center in the country when it was started. Art still believes in the importance of satisfying campers service needs really well.
Dan Guthrie, who was Art’s service manager, took over directing the business in 1989 and has followed Art’s lead. “We want to go the extra mile to make sure our customers’ experiences are always the best” stated Dan. Under Dan’s management of the sales, rental and service center with its ten employees, an estimated 20,000 people walk through the doors annually. “It can be like vacation central in the summer” explains Dan.
Knowing the service side of the business so well has led to careful selection of the RV’s Dan sells. Water leaks are the bane of a travel trailer. Making sure the manufactures he represents have given high design priority to preventing this potential problem is crucial to Dan. And the weight of the units have been reduced by most suppliers who understand our country’s need to reduce energy usage.
