AMSTERDAM, NY, – RVBusiness Magazine recently released the list of its 2022 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America Awards recipients, including Alpin Haus, which was also selected as one of its five special Blue Ribbon honorees. With its flagship RV dealership located on Route 5S in Amsterdam, NY, Alpin Haus operates a total of six locations in New York and New Jersey featuring a full line of RVs, snowmobiles, skis, boats, pools, and spas.
“We’re thrilled to be selected as one of RVBusiness’ Top 50 RV Dealers in North America and to receive the noteworthy Blue Ribbon designation,” said Alpin Haus President Andy Heck. “Alpin Haus is a family-owned business, and we believe in treating our customers and employees like part of the family. We owe our nearly 60 years of continued growth and success to their support, and we are truly proud to represent our community on the national level with this prestigious award.”
Dealers across the United States and Canada must first qualify to apply through nominations from RV manufacturers who believe they’re outstanding in their field. Then, nominees fill out a comprehensive application covering practices pertaining to consumers, staff, marketing, charitable endeavors and overall business procedures. An independent panel of industry experts next reviews the applications during an intensive closed-door session at the RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum in Elkhart, Ind., known as the “RV Capital of the World.”
“The 12 judges involved in reviewing the applications again this year engaged in lively discussions during two days of heated debate; I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that much interaction throughout the whole process. It was a horse race to the very last,” said Dealer Coordinator Barb Riley. “And the judges clearly had difficulty getting the list down to just 50, so those who advanced even further to receive Blue Ribbon designation among this already-stellar class should be particularly proud.”
Founded in 1964 as a small family-owned ski shop in Amsterdam, NY, Alpin Haus today is one of the Northeast’s leading outdoor recreational retailers. Alpin Haus currently employs more than 200 associates across six locations in the Capital Region, Hudson Valley and northern New Jersey. Since the first store opened nearly six decades ago, Alpin Haus has become the area’s premier destination for recreational vehicles, skis and snowboards, winter gear and accessories, snowmobiles, personal watercrafts, clothing, boats, pools, hot tubs and patio furniture.
The RVB Top 50 Awards honorees were publicly recognized at an all-industry reception held earlier this month during the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association International Convention/Expo at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, thanks to support from program sponsors Airxcel Inc., Dometic, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp., LCI Industries, NTP/STAG, Cummins Inc., Genesis Products, Protective Asset Protection, Northpoint Commercial Finance, Brown & Brown Dealer Services and Wells Fargo CDF.
“We know that this was an extremely competitive process, and it’s an absolute thrill to be recognized by our peers as one of the best in the industry,” said Heck. “We’re inspired by our fellow honorees to strive for greatness in all we do as a business, whether that means stocking the best-quality products, offering top-notch customer service or giving back to the community that has given us so much for so many years.”
