40 • RV PRO • SEPTEMBER 2014 rv-pro.com Elkhart Open House Week TIFFIN MOTORHOMES Tiffin isn't looking to add any new dealers currently. Still, the RV manufacturer will have an exhibit at Elkhart Open House Week this year so it can connect with its existing dealers, make contact with potential future dealer partners, and showcase a few new motorhome floorplans, new interiors, and an exterior redesign of its popular Pha- eton motorhome. "We're not looking for dealers (now), and we're not looking for orders; we're great on both of those fronts," says Jerry Williamson, Tiffin's national sales director. "In fact, we can't build any more than we're building. We're maxed out. … "But we want to talk with everyone we can, including any dealer that we don't know, because we don't know what tomorrow holds," he adds. "And, of course, we want to talk with our dealers, we want to assist our dealers and let them know about our products." e RV maker expects to feature 11 motorhomes this year, up from four the last time it exhibited two years ago. "is year we're going to present ourselves in a bigger way," Williams says. Tiffin's exhibit is located on the south side of Executive Parkway, between Grand Design and Skyline RV, on the Hall of Fame grounds. Hours are expected to run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 16 and Sept. 17 and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 18. SUNSET RV Shipshewana, Ind.-based manufac- turer Sunset RV will once again show- case its retro trailers during Elkhart Open House Week. The RV maker expects to display five or six units from its Sunray and Sun-Lite lines at the southeast corner of County Road 11 and County Road 6, from 8 a.m. until dusk, Sept. 16 through Sept. 18. "We put a little more quality mate- rial in (our units). It costs us more, but it's the way we get dealers to look at us. … And for this price, that's unbeliev- able," says Roger West, Sunset's product manager. For example, the company's Sunray line of towables features a dia- mond-plate rock guard in front, cherry or oak hardwood cabinets inside, and a stainless-steel sink and cooktop. "It's a brand-new, 50-year-old trailer – and they sell like hotcakes," West says. "ey're easy travelers; they don't take that much fuel mileage away." AUGUSTA RV Augusta RV will use its Elkhart Open House Week event to showcase its luxury fifth wheel, the Luxe, in all of its décor choices. e Luxe features a customizable RV interior with a multitude of residential-style features that come standard. e RV's exterior features a six-sided welded aluminum super-structure with true high-gloss gel-coat hung walls and a full-body paint job. Augusta RV's event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Sept. 16-18. e RV maker's display is located at 52700 Independence Court next to the Hall of Fame. Food and drinks will be offered through the day in the company's ARV Luxurious Lounge.
