Topeka, IN (Vocus) May 29, 2010
Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park RV camping resorts has joined a partnership with CrossRoads to design and build park models specifically for their franchised family campgrounds. “Jellystone Parks are instantly recognized by most families and the brand has been synonymous with the outdoor lifestyle. We are excited to provide purpose-built, rental cabins to their resorts,” said Mark Lucas President of CrossRoads RV.
The LIL’-Cabin found at the Indiana RV camp site features a low maintenance vinyl cedar shake exterior and a tongue & groove pine plank lumber interior. All units will feature both 32” and 19” LCD TV’s, a kitchenette with 14 cubic foot refrigerator and full residential bathroom. The Indiana campground in Lake Monroe, is taking delivery of two cabin models this week.
“One of the major factors in choosing CrossRoads as a partner is their quality and strong financial position. It is because of this strength Midwest Leasing is offering our franchisees a financing package for all LIL’-Cabin rental unit purchases. Current rates are competitive with the market and terms of up to five years are available. We at Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts couldn’t be happier to have CrossRoads’ highly skilled team building the LIL’- Cabin. Their long-standing reputation of uncompromising quality mirrors our reputation for the best quality in the family campground industry. This partnership will allow our large network to benefit from preferred pricing, consistency for customers and an aggressive co-marketing campaign. Our management team has had multiple meetings at the CrossRoads Campus to help develop this product including relaying valuable input from our franchisees. As an extra bonus, we have set in place a co-donating program to help support our adopted charity, Camp Sunshine” said Robert Schutter, President and COO of Leisure Systems Inc., franchisor of Jellystone Park Camp-Resort.
“We’ve developed a complete line-up of floor plans engineered to provide durability and longevity in mind.
