Luxury, motorhome dealer North Trail RV Center in Ft. Myers and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida is a locally owned, family business that is thriving along with Tiffin Motorhomes of Red Bay, Alabama. Both of these all-American companies are family owned, long established, and highly reputable, making their successes that much sweeter. As Tiffin's fastest growing dealer in the nation, North Trail RV Center stocks between 40 to 50 new Tiffin motorhomes at their Ft. Lauderdale location, a full sales and service Tiffin dealership. The Ft. Myers store maintains a considerable Tiffin inventory as well.

Tiffin proudly manufactures the Phaeton motorcoach, which according to RV Business magazine is the top selling, Class A motorhome for the last 2 years in a row. They also publish a quarterly magazine for Tiffin owners that features one of their dealers each issue. North Trail RV Center was the featured dealer for the last issue, Volume 9 Number 2.

Photographed and written by Fred Thomspon, the in-depth article goes beyond fluff and fancy and delves into the history of the Erp family as well as many of North Trail's long-term, key employees and covers their expansion plans for 2013 in Ft. Myers. The main focus of the article though is the core belief of North Trail's owners, Al Erp and his son Alan, that no one is ever treated as a number. North Trail's mission statement, that 'it is their stated policy to treat every visitor to their dealership as an honored guest in their homes...every day, every time without fail, no exceptions', is not just a statement on the wall, it's what makes them different from most other dealers out there.

'Customer' is a dirty word at North Trail and employees are trained to refer to them as 'guests' instead. In fact, according to the Tiffin article, the word 'customer' is banned from their business vocabulary.

North Trail became a Tiffin dealer in May of 2009 and according to Alan Erp, owner and overseer of daily operations, "The Phaeton represents about 40 percent of our orders. So far this year we are selling twice as many Allegro Buses as we sold last year. We have had a good run on the Breeze and the Breeze is definitely the choice when owners want to downsize."

"Tiffin has the right price points for dealers and owners." says Erp, " You don't need 20 floorplans in one brand; that just runs up the overhead. Also, in our experience, pre-owned Tiffin coaches hold their value better than any other brand and they go very fast."
