rv-pro.com May 2017 • RV PRO • 21 F or years, traditional towables – travel trailers and fifth wheels – have been like bread and butter to dealerships throughout the country. Yet toy haulers are figuring into the profit equation more often than not these days. At Best RV Center – one of the nation's biggest towable dealers – they're even outselling fifth wheels. "I always focus on toy haulers," says Naiel Ammari, owner of Turlock, Calif.-based Best RV. "All our brands help us a lot, but the one that's helped the most is the Attitude by Eclipse RV. I've been with them since they started in 2003 and I used to sell them when they were making just one trailer a week." One reason Eclipse is a favorite of Ammari's is the manu- facturer, also based in California, specializes in toy haulers. For another, Eclipse listens to the market and offers units in config- urations popular with his predominantly West Coast customers. Still, Ammari recognizes there are other appealing toy haulers available today; he's been a Keystone Fuzion dealer since the line debuted more than a decade ago, and in 2016, he took on the Dutchmen Voltage to supplement his Pacific Coachworks' Blaze'n and Forest River Sandstorm and Cherokee Wolf Pack toy hauler inventory. It was a successful strategy. PHOTOS BY JOAN LEE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED From humble beginnings, brothers Naiel (left) and Zee Ammari have built Best RV into a formidable dealership.
