44 • RV PRO • SEPTEMBER 2014 rv-pro.com W hile Elkhart Open House Week remains primarily an event for RV manu- facturers to show off new units, a number of suppliers and at least one distributor also will host events for dealers that include new aftermarket product unveilings, meetings with company reps, plant tours and more. COAST DISTRIBUTION/ HUSKY TOWING PRODUCTS New for 2014, Coast Distribution is allowing select RV suppliers to showcase their wares at its Husky Technical Center at 524 Pine Creek Court in Elkhart during Open House Week. With much of the focus during Open House Week squarely on RV makers, Coast's new endeavor should provide a nice opportunity for RV suppliers to get some exposure, according to Steve Holt, the company's vice president of brand and corporate marketing. "We wanted to let some of our vendors participate with us in Open House Week," he explains. "Because the thing with Open House Week is, if you're Coast, it's fine: We have facilities right there in Elkhart and we can stage an event. But if you're (a supplier), your best hope may be able to camp on with one of your OEM suppliers, and not everyone can do that." So, Coast established what it is calling the Product Showcase, allowing up to six suppliers to set up displays at its Tech- nical Center. As of early August, Carefree of Colorado, Purple Line Trailer Movers, Valterra, RV Products and Winegard had committed to display featured products. Holt says featured Product Showcase suppliers are expected to highlight new products, or those with features that lend themselves to being displayed. In some cases, suppliers will man their own space, while in others they may have a Coast ter- ritory rep do it for them.
