Record Year In 2012 For RV Sales Prompts Need For Additional Camper Service Bay, New RV Sales Offices, And Expansion Of RV Parts And Accessories Store

This renovation and expansion were crucial to meet the needs and demands of our customers.

Myrtle Beach, S.C.'s award-winning Ocean Lakes RV Center just completed major renovations, and has expanded its facility. It now includes an additional RV service bay, new RV sales offices, and more space for its camper supplies, parts and accessories store and Awning Center. Located at 6003 S. Kings Highway, the RV Center sits beside Ocean Lakes Family Campground’s Main Office. It is accessible from Highway 17 Business (King’s Highway) and from inside the campground.

“This renovation and expansion were crucial to meet the needs and demands of our customers,” explains Chris Allen, General Manager of Ocean Lakes RV Center. “We experienced a record year in sales and service during 2012 signaling that the time was right to make this investment in our facility.”

Ocean Lakes RV Center has added a 60 foot by 22 foot camper service bay onto the back of its existing structure. With seven service technicians on the team, the new service bay gives the RV Center the capability of working on larger 5th wheel campers and park trailers. As RVs have grown in size, including height, the older bay made it difficult for technicians to service camper roofs and air-conditioning units. Plus the 1,320 square feet of additional space allow the technicians to work on four units at one time. Ocean Lakes RV Center also travels to other area campgrounds to service RVs at their campsites.

Adding new sales offices became necessary as well. With consumer confidence on the rise and interest rates lower, 2012 was a record year for RV sales at Ocean Lakes RV Center, which specializes in travel trailers and 5th wheel campers. The RV Center added 425 square feet for two sales offices and a pre-sales lobby to provide more privacy while dealing with financial information. In addition to new campers, Ocean Lakes RV Center also sells used campers and those on consignment. Camper inventory prices range from $7,500 - $90,000 making it appealing for many families and retirees.

The expansion allowed Ocean Lakes RV Center to also increase the square footage of its store, which carries a wide range of camping supplies and accessories. With more floor space, it is now able to stock additional accessory lines. In addition, the Ocean Lakes RV Center increased storage space to accommodate more service and store merchandise for future need.
