“We’re very excited and pleased to announce the addition of 5 RV Care members to our national network so far this year, bringing our total membership number to 75 locations across the country,” said Derek Paterson, VP of Sales and Marketing." The recent departure of Lardners Trailer Sales in Saskatoon, from our group, opened the door for not only a strong replacement, but equally the opportunity to increase our footprint in Saskatchewan.” Joining the RV Care Network in the province are 4 family-run dealerships with long-standing tenure in each of their respective communities. Minard’s Leisure World, in Weyburn, joined earlier in the year - in July, Kehoe RV in Saskatoon, Sunridge RV in Radisson and Frank Dunn RV Sales in Prince Albert were added. That moves the total presence in Saskatchewan to 4 dealerships.

In May of this year, Runners RV in Cranbrook, BC, was welcomed into the network as well. RV Care’s dealership presence in the Canadian market-place is very apparent. Of equal note was their introduction, in 2018, of their proprietary and exclusive brand of RV Care Approved, lite weight travel trailers called Northern Spirit, now offering 8 floor plans. 32 of the network’s members are recognized as Authorized Northern Spirit dealers. Paterson continued, “Minard’s Leisure World and Runners RV, shortly after becoming members, were added to our Northern Spirit group and we were equally pleased to welcome and authorize Get-A-Way RV in Abbotsford, BC as our 32nd authorized Northern Spirit dealer. Our plan for Saskatchewan, is to have 2, possibly 3, authorized dealers in the province so with one confirmed (Minard’s) and the addition of our new RV Care members, the opportunity to attain our objectives is within range. It all bodes really well for assisting more customers in 2020, with a strong RV Care and Northern Spirit market presence.”

The RV Care Network has been a part of the Canadian RV landscape since 1999. 75 Dealer locations, 32 as Authorized Northern Spirit dealers, all committed to servicing each other’s traveling customers in moments of unexpected servicing needs. This provides a powerful market position for consumers considering where to buy their next RV.
