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

“One of the greatest times in Life is RVing!”

 Sunsets in the east are grand!
Sunsets in the east are grand!

What a great time to be in the RV business, seeing so many RV’s on the road and in the RV Parks!  Now in 7th year with B Young RV, it only gets better.   B Young RV has now move into being in the 10 Ten in the North America in the sales of Tiffin Motorhomes.

The company has expanded with a distribution center in another location.  Inbound RV’s will go there first to get a Preliminary Pre-Delivery Inspection and any minor repairs that are needed from the travel time from the factories.   We also have extra storage at the location that only has only technicians working there.  A very important expansion as we do not have enough space at our main location for all the RV’s we have in inventory.  We also have a full RV Body Repair and Paint facility at the location.  Here at B Young RV, we are the RV Dealer to get all your needs taken care of.

Just after our June Expo show the wife and I hit the road with the intention to traveling into California along Hwy 101, I wanted to do photo ops on Roosevelt Elk.  We headed down I-5 with the first stop being Seven Feathers RV Resort, spending a night and the next morning hitting Mac’s Diner in Shady Cove, Oregon, ordering the best Country Fried Steak, Eggs over medium and hash browns in the state.

Explore the past, Brothers, Oregon Stage Stop open for business. I can remember running out of gas once, crested the hill coming from the east and saw the stage stop sign open and the engine restarted as I was coasting...

Well plans changed and the wife asked me if I wanted to go to eastern Oregon and do some scouting…  It does not take me more than 5 seconds to say are you sure about this and yes was my answer!  So off we head towards the east, with the first stop at Collier State Park, capturing the last spot there.   With not real direction and letting the motorhome take to where ever, we many side trips and even into the Owyhee’s in search of Pronghorns and Mule deer.

Explore the Owyhee area, with a great deal of BLM...

We stayed a couple nights that Crane Crystal Crane Hot Springs RV Park.  The weather turned from warm sunny days to snow and freezing weather.   As we did not have a set course to take, we headed back towards Seven Feathers RV Park, with it being full, though I know the management there; we were out of luck…   Off the cuff, we did find another park after hitting the Oregon Coast at Bandon, Oregon.   Just a note, the Oregon State Parks were full, my suggestion with the Oregon State Parks, is to use Reserve America and get your spot reserved.  We stayed at Bandon by the Sea RV Park, a small RV Park that does have permanent residents and allows weary travelers to stay.  It is very clean park to stay at.  I was very fortunate that Bruce Young, allowed me to take the extended two weeks during the summer… P.S. We did go into California and saw Elk, in a spot that I have seen them every time we go that way. Interesting that we went through the Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park.  Hmm! Big and Dry Camping only.  No one on the west coast beats Oregon State Parks…

A relaxing spot to stop after a long trip. Lots of wildlife abound the area.

Since my last RV Newsletter, B Young RV has added some new product lines to our inventory with Winnebago Travel Trailers (Micro Minnie – Hot small trailer) and Thor Class A motorhomes (Windsport) and Class C motorhomes (Quantum).  The highly styled Dynamax Istata 3 Class B+ has been a top seller with it options and just overall great appearance.

Our lineup of Little Guy teardrop style T@B’s, T@G’s, T@G XL’s and regular Little Guys do not hang around very long.  What a phenomena of who are buying these vintage perspective of the mind…  It is simply amazing how many are sold and the fact we run out at a moment’s notice!

Recently, such as July 7th, we had a visit from Bob Tiffin, the owner of Tiffin Motorhomes.  A man that believes in his company and the family he gains with customers that buy Tiffin.  It is all about service and a long time relationship.   It was very enlightening to have a round table discussion with Bob in the 36UA Bunkhouse Allegro Open Road motorhome, a number of us were able to make a few suggestions.  Bob, pulled out folded over paper and made notes of the comments.  Rest assured when he gets back to Red Bay, Alabama, he will review and make some small changes…   Bob brought up the new Phaeton 44OH on the Powerglide Chassis and how it will be the new change in how RV’s will be built.  The Phaeton 44OH has a flat floor throughout the motorhome.  It is all about how the floor is built and how the walls are set.  Come by B Young RV and learn all about it if you are interested why Tiffin leads the way!

Phaeton 44OH, New concept in the RV Industry.

Interesting thing about RV’s, they all have one thing in common to me, and that is to use to escape from the daily grind and the cluster of life.  So, many like to hunt, fish, hike, explore unknown places and even venture to where just maybe no one has ever stepped foot before, so I am going to give you all a link to onXmaps HUNT.  Just touch the following logo and let your mind take it all in.  The product can be used on mobile devices, Garmin GPS’s (handheld or vehicle).   It is not all about HUNT, but that is where it started, but it is an adventurer into the mountains, desert, beach, and life.

Bwana Bubba’s RV Newsletter – Summer 2014

Missle Bucks

Well summer 2014 is about to start soon and I am ready for the Sun in the N.W.

As I start to write this newsletter, we are down at Seventh Feathers RV Resort south of Roseburg, Oregon and it is raining fairly heavy.   As my granddaughter Addison would say at 6 years old it is raining dogs and cats, plus buckets of water with snails.   Yes snails, when it is warm and we have heavy rains it brings the snails out in groves.

2014 has started out with a bang on RV Sales throughout the country and here at B Young RV the increases from 2013 are tremendous, thanks to all the referrals that we get.   Seems all categories of RV’s are selling at B Young RV and other dealers around the country.  Guess the Baby Boomers want to hit the road and those that are still working with families are finding that spending time in the outdoor environment with the whole family to be an adventurer! It is interesting though how many people are selling their homes and with some of the equity hitting the roads in an RV for a while, then settle in a tax friendly state.   I find it is like being off the Grid a bit and not having to take care of your yard anymore, pay property taxes, plus you can leave at any time to a new playground in your RV.

While down at Seventh Feathers RV Resort (p.s. I don’t gamble) I have had the privilege to play golf a couple of times out at the Myrtle Creek Golf Course.  The first time I only had a couple of old Walter Hagen 6 & 8 irons (probably about 75 years old, given to me by my grandfather in 1967) in the back of the motorhome with a putter.   I was able to borrow a driver with trust that I would return it after play.  What a great time, I have now learned that I need to carry my regular clubs with me at all times.  What amazed me was the amount of Turkeys and Deer running around on the challenging course.   It was before Turkey season started in Oregon and the Toms were out strutting everywhere on the course!

Yes! They stopped play as I had to take a video of the birds working the green:  

LINK:   Tom’s on the Green

The second time down at Seventh Feathers RV Resort I had my clubs and played well in the wind, rain, sun and hail at Myrtle Creek Golf Course.  The course held up great and was a blast to play and being able to work the Par 3’s with more than one ball.  I had the course to myself into the late afternoon!  The Course GM and the Course PGA Pro are really great guys and the atmosphere is very homely and open.   The Marshall was a hoot and warned me I should go up a club on the Elevated Tee box Par 3 13th Hole, as the wind will catch the ball.  Two times I did it my way and put the ball into the sand trap (2’ apart) at the edge of the green, the next shot I took his advice and put it on the green.  “I told you so” Ok!  Enough Golf, go and have fun there though.

You can even get a great hot dog or hamburger at the diner!

Made a trip into California this spring also and found a really nice campground to stay in with friendly staff along the Northern California Coastline at Benbow KOA!  It was great to find that particular campground late into the evening.   Checked out other campgrounds, but felt uncomfortable, seems many of the old campgrounds in the Redwoods have lived on from the old days (60’s and 70’s) with little upkeep.  There is a great deal of remoteness in the area and sometimes I think I had gone back in time to when I was a kid…  Maybe a some paint and trimming of trees would have help change the atmosphere of RV Parks in the Redwoods!

A couple of our Tiffin Customers Russ and Pam will be heading to RED BAY, Alabama to see their Tiffin being built in July after the holidays.   The welcome mat has been put out for them to have a memorable experience!  Russ will be sending me a series of pictures on the build and I can’t wait to see how it is done from the customer’s view.  Russ I think will be assisting in the production… I have a couple of restaurants down in Bandon,that everyone that heads down the way might enjoy to eat.  Always 1st cabin food and I have given you pictures so you can remember the buildings along the wharf in Bandon.

There is plenty of parking and time to enjoy either of the restaurants on the Wharf at Bandon, Oregon

A new addition to B Young RV inventory is the Rubicon, a pull behind Toy Hauler, a great looking Toy Hauler at a great value.   Now is the time to get great deals on all Toy Haulers at B Young RV.  The “B” in the Young has order more inventory and we need to move the 2014’s out!

Well Spring is almost here and so is daylight saving, about time here in the Pacific N.W. for me.

Oregon JD Rams 03

Getting started we open the New Year with no snow and plenty of RV Sales here at B Young RV.  I know I said no snow, but that has come and gone in February.   In the old days I loved the snow and I loved to head to the hills and play in places like Steen’s Mts. or the BLM east of Madras, Oregon to play in the snow or chase exotics.

Today has been a moving day for the company for the upcoming PORTLAND METRO DEALERS 56th RV SHOW, which starts March 5th and goes through to March 9th.   The company has been able to get in and setup before any other dealer.  Makes life easier for the set-up crew!  Hoorah!

B YOUNG RV will be taking up HALL- A at the EXPO, which was the main HALL at EXPO SHOWS.   I had the privilege to take out a Tiffin Allegro RED 33AA Diesel Pusher today.   I have to say that I am glad I don’t have to arraign some 70+ RV’s in the building.   Today the B in the B YOUNG, Jack Phelps and Jimmy G are doing all the work.  Oh! There are the drivers also, which all sales staff did drive out a Class A Motorhome!

I would like to say that I have had our motorhome out in the winter, but only had one chance in December to do so.  In the meantime I have had it protected at Luxury Vehicle Care in Milwaukie, Oregon.   It is great feeling to know that my RV is stored inside in a secure facility.   I have notice that a great deal of B Young RV’s customers also uses Luxury Vehicle Care to store their RV’s.

Little Guy has come out with another Teardrop called the T @ G, which has nicer features over the regular Teardrop.   I have a rancher that is heading out into the S.W. part of the U.S. and taking his T @ G out and pulling it behind a 2012 Porsche 911 AWD.   I will put pictures of the setup in my next newsletter.

This is the new T @ G with A/C and dual pane windows! Hot Stuff
This is the new T @ G with A/C and dual pane windows! Hot Stuff

Tulips are about to come out, so RV’s are about come out and head to the parks in Oregon and elsewhere in the U.S.A.   I know in December I was surprised how many people were camping on the Oregon Coast.  Yes it was easy to get a spot during the weekend trip, but folks were enjoying the good weather on the coast.

Now if you happen to be in Newport, Oregon, I would suggest eating at the Newport Café, my good friend Michael Blakely tells me it is the place to eat.  I will eat there the next time I am in Newport.  You do have to love their webpage!

At B YOUNG RV, we are lucky as Sales Staff, as I feel and so do my colleagues we have the best RV’s in the marketplace, with the likes of Tiffin RV, Grand Design RV, Prime Time RV, The Redwood, Coachmen, Keystone, Little Guy and many more.  Tough to choose, but we have a floor-plan and a model for everyone.

“And as we say at B YOUNG RV, come shopping today and you can be camping tomorrow”

Looking forward to 2014 an Even Year!

He won't be there for Christmas Dinner!
He won’t be there for Christmas Dinner!

I truly wish everyone that reads this, A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  I do hope that the Holidays are great with the gathering of family and friends.   May the New Year bring prosperity to this great Nation and those that support Her!

2013 Has been a great year for B Young RV and the employees’ of our company that will start it’s 5 year in business.   I have been blessed to work for B Young RV from the first couple of months of being of being open.    It is great to work for a company that truly cares about their employees, for the second year in a row Bruce Young and his business partner Mark Bretz have given to every employee with profit sharing checks at a time of the year that everyone can use it.  It is blessing to all that receive that never expected it!

The November 2013 Metro RV Show was an outstanding show with the selling of every Tiffin Allegro Open Road Motorhome.   I would have to say it was a wild time at the show.   One of my new customers came to the show while heading out of town to Montana.   They just had to see and touch the new Tiffin Open Road 36LA they had heard so much about.   Words as they were leaving “we will be back, we are buying that coach.”  They did come back the following week and buy a Tiffin Allegro Open Road  36LA like we had at the show in Maroon Coral exterior, though they had to do a factory order.   The Tiffin Allegro Bus 45LP, didn’t last long either at the show, as neighbors’ to the north of CONUS came to the show and bought it…   I can only say it was a recorded show for B YOUNG RV!

If I haven’t said it before, it is true that everyone can camp year round in Oregon.  RVing is a year round event in Oregon.  Do you remember how the weather was in Portland Metro area of Oregon during Thanksgiving this year?   Well we pulled our motorhome out of storage at Portland Luxury RV & Boat Storage in Milwaukie, Oregon on the Monday before Thanksgiving.  I had told PLRB, that I would not be using it until January!   “Hmm!” Dawn said to me at PLRB!  Head out on Tuesday in the Heavy Fog on I-5.   We took the cutoff to Drain and Reedsport with the fog trying to lift in the coastal mountains, once we hit the turn off to Loon Lake on the Umpqua Highway the blue sky emerged.   From what I understand the fog never lifted in Portland during the time we were gone.   The weather was great and the temperature was around 50-55 degrees on the Oregon Coast.   Fish & Chips at Bedrocks on the wharf at Winchester Bay, Oregon and the cook did disclose where he had harvest the nice Roosevelt Bull that hangs in hangs in the back dining area. . .  Classified!

A new wild edition scheme at B Young RV!

Daylight Savings Is Behind Us!

That feature of life does not mean we can’t go camping in the fall and winter!

The Pacific Northwest is a great place to play in the Fall & Winter!

The Oregon Coast can be very pleasant this time of year & Central Oregon can be a place to go and enjoy Nature & Snow!

First off it is that time of year also for the last major RV Show of the year in Portland, Oregon

with the

Portland Metro Dealers RV Show!

It has been quite a year here at B Young RV and other dealers in the country with record sales.   It just isn’t the baby boomers buying RV’s, as I see a great deal of younger folks buying RV’s.  With growing cost to owning homes, I do find a large number of folks that are selling off their homes and hitting the road for the last Hoorah!   There is so much to see in the United States and in Canada, why not see it all.  Maybe one of them could be the next author of a best seller on Hitting the Pavement or the Back Roads of CONUS!  Freedom of the Open Roads!

For those going to the show, you’ll see many emerging RV Companies moving up the ranks for popularity of their products.   I find it very interesting to see the changes of RV’s and the new technology of building, features and overall companies business practices.

Recently we had training at B YOUNG RV with Prime Time RV a company that we have had since they started manufacturering and B YOUNG RV opening up.  After the training with Mark Kealoa I thanked him for giving me new information that I did not know!  One can always learn something new, if they listen…

All our companies that B Young RV do intensive training on their products that we carry.  A great reason to buy from B Young RV as Sales Consultants have knowledge on the products, plus our REPS from the RV Companies have a long term relationship with the owner of B Young RV.   Those a trust has been establish between management, representatives, service, parts and sales force!

Stop by at the RV Show and see all the new upgrades on the:

Tiffin Class A MotorhomesAllegro Bus, Phaeton, Allegro Red, Allegro Breeze & Allegro Open Road (GAS)

CoachmenLeprechaun & Prism Class C’s and Mirada Class A

5th WheelsSolitude – Bay Hill – Sanibel – Crusader – Redwood – Reflection

5th Wheel Toy HaulersMomentum 355 – Voltage

Travel TrailersTracer – Kodiak – Lacrosse – Hideout – Little Guy and Including the T @ B!

Tip of the Month from Andrew: 

1)  Check your Roof today before the rains come!

2)  Does your motorhome Sway to Fro?  if it does call our Service Department about Roadmaster!

3)  Those that don’t plan to use their RV during the winter months make sure to winterize and put fuel-gas stabilizer in!

KEY WORDS IN RV CONSTRUCTION:

Bonded Slideout Walls & Backwalls!

 This is after he took off from my hidden spot and landed on the other side of the pond!

I would strongly suggest that you buy an Oregon State Park Day Use Permit there are so many advantages to having one when you have an RV in the State Oregon.  I believe that a Two (2) year permit is $50.00!  Even those that just want to launch a boat at a State Park, they will find it to be cost affected!

This month I have put William M.Tugman State Park as the place to go, as it close to Coos Bay on the southern Oregon coast.  This park does get cell phone reception for those folks that feel they need it.  The park has a large lake that you can fish or float around.  There is also a large playground for the kids or grandkids.   A very nice Oregon State Park north of Coos Bay, Oregon!

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. I would suggest that you contact Polly or Jack at B Young RV.Remember if you have an I Phone, I PAD Mini or I PAD, there is a FREE APP for you and at the tap of finger you can find HELP!
