AMSTERDAM, NY,– Alpin Haus, one of the Northeast’s largest, family-owned, independent RV retailers and a name synonymous with outdoor family recreation, has been named one of the “Top 50 RV Dealers in North America” by RVBusiness magazine.
Representatives from Alpin Haus accepted the “Top 50 Dealer” designation at the 2015 RV Dealers Association (RVDA) International Convention/Expo at Bally’s Las Vegas on November 4. The award marks the third for Alpin Haus from RVBusiness magazine, following recognition as one of the nation’s top 50 RV dealers in 2008 and 2010. Alpin Haus owns RV stores in Amsterdam, Saratoga, and Port Jervis, NY.
“On behalf of the entire team at Alpin Haus, we are thrilled to be recognized as one of the industry’s leading dealers by RVBusiness magazine,” said Andy Heck, president of Alpin Haus. “The RV makes it possible to explore America’s great terrain while still being surrounded by the comforts of home. Alpin Haus is honored to be part of the heritage of the RV and we look forward to continuing to make it possible for Capital Region families to take to the road in their own RV.”
To identify the list, RVBusiness magazine asked recreation vehicle manufacturers to nominate dealers across the United States and Canada who exemplify best practices and excellence in their field. Nominees were invited to fill out comprehensive applications describing business aspects such as customer service and satisfaction, employee training and education, financial planning and property management. An independent panel of veteran industry experts convened for judging the applications at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., the unofficial “RV Capital of the World,” to select the RVB Top 50.
The “Top 50 RV Dealers in North America” program debuted in 2008 and relaunched in 2014 after a three-year hiatus.
“The applications we received this year were, by and large, the most thought-out and thorough that we’ve seen in the five years we’ve done this. And that’s a direct reflection of the quality of the applicants themselves,” stated Sherman Goldenberg, publisher of RVBusiness magazine and founder of the Top 50 program. “More and more top-notch RV dealers have really set their sights on getting this award and are working harder to earn it – this year’s competition was the toughest it’s ever been. Our 2015 winners should be especially proud of their achievement, and we sure are proud to have them.”
