Frank’s RV Newsletter December 2016

2016 A Year to Remember Forever

I would like to wish all our customers a:

Merry Christmas – Happy Hanukkah – Happy Holidays

And of course Happy New Year.  I have the privilege to have my 8 year old granddaughter Addison celebrating Christmas with us for the past 8 years. 

May the New Year be great for all!

Another year has gone by and what an exciting year it has been at B Young RV.   The company still wants to expand into Washington.  Finding build able land has been a problem, it seems all the land that has been looked doesn’t meet code to the environment…   So with the plans to expand, so have the product lines, especially with motorize. 

This is the 33.1 Palazzo Diesel Pusher. Only 34′ long and full body paint!

We now have the Thor Palazzo diesel pusher motorhome (a great deal of standard features) , Thor Quantum Class C

One of the best interiors of any Class C in the market place. Now with a 6 speed transmission!

(Cabinets like a high end diesel pusher) and the Winnebago Navion B+ Sprinter motorhome in our lineup.   As for 5th Wheel products we have the all new Vanleigh RV – Vilano product line.  The company is headed up by Bob Tiffin, Van Tiffin and his son Leigh Tiffin, having many of the great Tiffin features plus the company values that we have known for more than 44 years. 

The Vilano, just think it has multiplex wiring, turn on most everything at one area.

I find it amazing with the growth of the company in just 8 years.   Bruce Young, I find to be a visionary and living the dream allowing his team to prosper and be part of the whole business…  The company is ever growing and improving Customer Service and Community Service.

A on a funny note about improving, for 7 years we have had an area on the south lot, when it rains we have a pond and mud hole when it shrinks up.   Well today 12/22/2016 we no longer have that obstacle on the south lot. 

Improvements on the property, whether outside or inside it is being done. This includes the shops!

I want to thank all the customers of B Young RV, which have bought from me and the dealership.  I also thank the customers that did come in and even if we did not sell to you that you are always welcome at B Young RV. 

As for myself I have gone to a 4 day a week position and still in sales.  I am fortunate that management has allowed this.  Since my last newsletter we have acquired two Top Management Leaders for the Sales Team.  Bill & David are two highly talent men that make it easy for our customers and B Young RV to put a buying experience together.  

I thought I would leave you all with a little video of a Cougar.  This video was take in the summer of 2103, since then more have moved in to this rural area, just outside the city limits of Molalla, Oregon.FR

 RVing is an Adventure in Life

 Well… We’re into autumn, but it seems more like summer around Oregon.   Can you believe the other day while down the Oregon Coast, it was 75 degrees in the last days of September?   With my new work schedule it, we are able to venture further on my days off and even made it down to Bandon, Oregon.   Soon the Cranberry harvest will be going on in the southern Oregon coast.   The Cranberry Festival has already been held in August, as the tourists from around the country have been in Oregon on vacation.  Guess they must have had frozen berries leftover from last year…  

It is a Blue Bird Bus! Never know what type of motorhome you'll see on the open road...

What a year it has been at B Young RV and for the RV Industry as a whole.   We see record months in sales of all kinds of RV’s at B Young RV.   Tiffin Motorhomes have been leading the way as Number 1 in Class A motorhomes. In the Class B+, there has been a great increase in the sales of Prisms’ which are on the Sprinter (Mercedes Benz) chassis.   Of course the Coachmen Freelander and Leprechaun Class C’s have been rolling out the door, as well.  I see that Coachmen are innovating new features within model years.   They are always improving their product lines.

 In the 5th wheel lineup, the flagship for Thor is the Redwood and we are extremely pleased with the Redwood.  The Redwood is full residential – luxury 5th wheel that is designed for fulltime living, with a residential feeling in every aspect.  Grand Design products, both in travel trailers and 5th wheels have been the hot product for 2015 and I can see them leading the category in the future.   I do love my motorhome, but I would own a Reflection or Solitude!

Anytime that I am in Pine Grove, Oregon on Hwy 216 on the way to Maupin, I always stop. Eugene Walters who owns the store has been there more than 30 years. He is one of the locals that is call out to help on fires. Warm Springs Indian Reservation get a great deal of fires. Eugene is always on the ready!

Now that my schedule has changed to a 4 day work week we have been covering a great deal of highway and backroads on my days off.   Always having a camera on the ready on the dash, I have been able to capture some amazing photo of wildlife and birds.   On the bird scene catching Blue Herons or Great Egrets while taking off seems to be my goal.  They are very weary birds, not always allowing the stalk to be close.   I have a couple of new parks that we have stayed at since the Oregon State Parks this summer and going into fall have been full.   The last few weeks on the Oregon coast from Newport, Oregon and down to Bandon, our neighbors from down south have taken over the Oregon State Parks.   The Salmon are running, so the Californians are here in full force to fish for Salmon in the bays and rivers.  I have had customers talk about Sea & Sand at Lincoln Beach, so finally we have stayed there twice.  This is very clean, nice and peaceful park, with the beach in walking distance and super ocean view on the top side.

For those that have watched the Food Channel with Guy Fieri, there are a number of restaurants he has recommended in Oregon.  The one that we just had to find was in Eugene by the name of Papa’s Soul Food Kitchen.   We had to wait for it to open and I made sure I was at the head of the line some 45 minutes before it opened.  The line was long and the food was a 10+ with great helpings and great price.   I could see why they have a strong customer base, the service was far greater than I expected…

Papa's Soul Food Kitchen in Eugene, Oregon. It is worth the trip and maybe the wait... I highly recommend this establishment...

I hope that everyone who has an RV has been enjoying the experiences that I have been enjoying.   The RV, no matter what style, is an avenue to escape the daily grind of life.  You can see so much of our great Nation while using an RV.   For those of you that have yet to experience the pleasure of owning an RV, don’t wait until any longer, you want to enjoy it to the fullest!  If you have children, or even grandchildren, owning an RV would give them their greatest adventure in life to be RVing with YOU!  This I know as my granddaughter, who is 7, asks every week when are we going to the Beach!

This is the fun you can have while RVing. I was in a park that had a lake and got the shot!

 It has been a blast to work for Bruce (the B in the Young) for 6 years selling RV’s to happy customers!  I look forward to the future at B Young RV!

For those that like to venture into the forest, desert, mountains for fishing, rock hounding, hunting or even hiking, you should consider having mapping that will let you know if you can be on the land your on.  Do not rely on paper maps or even a general programmed GPS…

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.  Another thing you are invited to get a FREE Insurance Quote, one way to see if your insurance company is competitive on pricing.  There is an APP for IPADS and SMART PHONES FREE. 

One last item of the Newsletter:   I highly recommend a product called XZILON (Molecular Adhesion). If your RV is in very good condition outside with good decals, paint and could be 6 Months to 2-3 Years, you need to do this for the long haul.  I do have it on my motorhome and you can tell the difference when washing it right off the bat, bugs don’t stick like glue. The product is us by Boeing on their aircraft for a number of reasons, 1) better coefficient, 2) protect the outside of the plane and engines and lastly, much easier to clean.

I would suggest that you contact Juan or Chet at B Young RV @ 503-305-8685!

The place to come and have Fun!
