North Trail RV Center of Ft. Myers and Ft. Lauderdale, FL, has announced plans for its multi-million dollar expansion of their Ft. Myers location in 2013.
As one of the top-selling, luxury, motorhome dealers in the country, North Trail RV Center is positioning itself, and South Florida, as a destination for RV buyers and also premier RV service. As South Florida's largest RV dealer, guests flock here from all over the country to purchase their luxury RVs at North Trail and to have service or warranty work done. While here they stay in luxury RV parks, enjoy the Florida weather and patronize local restaurants, shops and businesses. RVer's have a tremendous impact on the South Florida economy. According to a study by the Family Motor Coach Association of America, the median net-worth of RV owners surveyed was $657,000 with 64% having a net-worth of over $500,000. With 74% of RV owners being retired with median incomes of $84,700, (29% of which have incomes over $100,000), they have time and money to spend at their leisure. Enticing more RVer's to the area, this $15 million dollar expansion at North Trail RV Center will certainly add a huge, positive boost to Southwest Florida's local economy.
Expansion of the 80 plus acre 'footprint' will begin in late 2012. This state-of-the-art facility will include expanded sales and finance departments, service buildings and a parts mega-store that will total over 70,000 square feet, almost 2 acres, of floor space under roof. With areas set aside for rallys and events, this 'destination' dealership will be a one-of-a-kind for this area.

North Trail RV Center is an authorized sales and service center for Freightliner, Spartan, Onan, Newmar, Tiffin Motorhomes, Fleetwood, American Coach, Jayco, Heartland RV, Thor, Winnebago, Keystone RV and Pleasure-Way. "North Trail RV Center is already very unique because RV owners can have all of their sales, finance, service, bodywork, tire, and chassis needs met right here in one place," says owner Alan Erp. "We completed the expansion of our collision, chassis and tire center in 2011. We will be significantly increasing inventory, as well as our staff and we will also be featuring the newest, largest RV parts Mega-Store in Florida."
