Ben Hirsch plus Ed Thor on Podcast 33

Episode 33 of RV Industry News starts with an interview of Ben Hirsch, chief operations officer of Campers Inn, about the RV Dealers Association’s Young Executives Program.

Hirsch, who oversees the day-to-day operations of nine dealerships between Florida and New Hampshire, has been active in developing fast-track training opportunities to help develop younger leaders into well-rounded dealership managers. He talks about how the program was formed and how it is being received by the participants.

Next up, Ed Thor, manager of RV services, and John Annichiarico, vice president of national sales for Vehicle Administrative Services (VAS) talk about their branded emergency roadside assistance programs being offered to dealers, manufacturers and associations.

These are completely customizable programs in that a manufacturer can create one program for a toy hauler line and a completely different product for motorhome owners — all branded under that specific company. VAS is also providing completely customizable ancillary products as well, such as 24/7 call in RV technical assistance, an RV concierge service, tire and wheel protection, and RV maintenance services benefits.
