ed another level of distinction: ABC opened an indoor show-
room that can display 25 to 30 motor homes and travel trailers.
;e 25,000-square-foot building allows people to browse in
comfort year round. “In the winter when it’s 10 degrees out,
they can shop for RVs in a climate-controlled environment,”
says General Manager Patrick Nutter. “It makes going in and
out of them a lot more pleasurable.”
In March, the showroom will have a weeklong o;cial grand
opening, replete with prizes, special o;ers, and factory rep-
resentatives. ;e spacious facility is part of the vision ABC’s
owner, John Marquardt, has to enhance the RV business. “He
wanted a sales lot that was viable twelve months out of the
year,” Nutter says.

lines in the business. ;e company carries about 25 di;erent
RV vendors while most of its competitors have three to ten.

NOT YOUR FATHER’S RV
RVs have come a long way over the years, and ABC’s products
re;ect this evolution. Modern units o;er many of the ame-
nities and comforts of home, including Corian countertops,
solid wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, washers and
dryers, electric beds that can be tilted for reading, and even
memory foam mattresses in the master suite. Some also have
heated steering wheels, blue tooth, automatic defoggers, and
sunroofs. “Several units have electric ;replaces,” Nutter says.
“On a chilly night, you can sit inside one of these units and

“If you have not shopped for RVs in the last 10 years, you re-
ally have to come down and see what is being produced now,”
Nutter says. “It’s a whole new world.”
