Meyer Distributing has about 60 locations throughout the country, which Miller says will help with the timeliness of deliveries. If an RV owner's fridge goes out in California, he or she will want it fixed right away, but it takes five business days to ship a unit to the West Coast, he says. "With Meyer Distributing, if a dealer orders a unit one day, they'll have it the next," he says. "I'm guessing with that time issue, it definitely could be a big hit out on the West Coast." Miller says his company also works with RV Cooling Unit Warehouse, a company in Mississippi that caters more to the do-it-yourselfer. "We sell to him, and he sells to RV owners," he says. Miller says his company sold approx- imately 3,700 new and remanufactured cooling units last year. "We're still selling more remanufactured than new, but over the years, the new ones are getting more popular," he says.
