As I write this current RV Newsletter from my office at B Young RV, I thought I would keep it on the light side with no sales pitch!
At the first of January 2012, Bruce Young had decided to be included in the Portland Boat Show; the promoter established a combine show and called it the Portland Boat Show & Rose City RV Show.
It turned out to be a really fun show, with a different atmosphere from the usual RV Show. Tuesday evening from 6-9 there was a buffet for buying customers that had the Special Coin which was a Special Invite. The place was packed, maybe because of the free food, or that the companies that had boats invited everyone they knew. Customers for the most part were there because of the boats. Then the surprise of the amount folks that were highly interested in RV’s and took the time to check them out. Without asking customers would gave sales consultants there name, either an email or phone number to call them at a later date.
It was a lot of fun for both the Sales Staff and the Customers that were at the Show!
The highlight of the show was all the chatter about a group of customers that were at B YOUNG RV at one of the round tables with Wine, Chips, Peanuts, Dip and glasses for 10! That happened to be David, Kathy and their good friends Nick & Jan who came to have a good time and buy a new 2012 Tiffin Allegro Breeze 32’ motorhome. David & Kathy had bought a 2012 Tiffin Allegro Breeze 32’ in 2011 at the Redmond,OR Good Sam Rally. It was great and at the end of the deal, the Sales Manager was saved a small glass of wine! The last drop!
I almost forgot about Walt & Helen, who bought a Tiffin Allegro Bus from during the month of January. Some months back Walt and Helen had decided to give up the road and sold their Neumar Diesel to the dealership and headed to a retirement community out in east county outside of Portland, OR. I got a call somewhere around the end of December I believe from Walt. He told what they had done and now have decided retirement is not for them in a place that tells you when you have to eat and the other people sit in chairs all day. I did know that Walt was a decorated Army Combat Medic and was a Purple Heart recipient. I most likely did not listen to what war he was in, but when he and Helen came in to look at 40′ diesel, I soon learned he was a WWII VET. He was wearing his WWII Combat Hat! His WWII life was most interesting in the fact that he fought in the Battle of the Bulge, a great battle during the winter of 1944 and into 1945. He spent more than 3 weeks behind enemy lines with Germans all around him and his men. They were without adequate food, clothing, shelter and ammo. He survived this battle to come home and marry his grade school sweetheart. It was a privilege to be able to spend time with the both of them before they head out for the open road and spend some time in Arizona. They did put their furniture in storage, so they will have it when they decide to finally be willing to be told when to eat, they have something to sit on!
As you know the rains were fierce in January, snow came to the mountains and then it got warm causing many of the rivers to rise to flood stage. Well the Willamette River & the Clackamas River weren’t left out of that, lucky it didn’t come up to the levels of 1996. There is some humor from the dealership in relationship to our customer’s Ray & Shirley. They called me and asked if they could stay at the dealership over night as they were having some repairs done on their 2012 Tiffin Allegro Breeze, I told them we really didn’t have a good place to stay, but that Clackamette Park on the Willamette River had spots and it was close. “Great he said that will work”, though I made a comment that the river was rising and to say at the inboard spots and they should be OK. The following picture is from the next day after they headed back to Tacoma.
Skipping to business now and letting anyone that has not bought an RV as of yet, don’t wait until you can’t use one. Now is the time as prices are still great on RV’s at B Young RV, but the big deal is the interest rate for those that qualify for loans, the interest rates are at all time lows.
I remember back in 2004 when the rate was very good, but it is even better now. Back in 2004 there were buy down interest rates. Don’t have to do that to get good rates anymore. Make the great deal on an RV and still have a great loan rate. Maybe it is because of election year or the government is still trying to figure it out. The banks are loaning money to qualified buyers. Many institutions have come to the dealership and want us on-board with their bank and credit unions.
I feel that Polly our Finance and Credit Manager can help just about everyone.
Feature Wildlife Picture
This month I have put L.L. STUB STEWART as the place to go, as it close to Portland, Oregon on the way to the Seaside, OR at the Oregon Coast. It is a very large park with more than 20 miles of hiking trails. I have yet to go there, but it now on my list of State Parks to go to this Spring and Summer. It is open year round, great for those that camp year round. You find the park brochure at a click of the mouse.
If you have forgotten, please remember that folks that have bought their RV’s from B Young RV are part of the Priority RV Network, which includes discounts in the Stores and being a priority customer while on the open road at other Priority RV Dealerships.
