OWATONNA, Minn. – RVBusiness magazine recently named Noble RV among the 2017 Top 50 RV Dealers in North America along with only four other Minnesota RV dealers.
RVBusiness (RVB) 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 including customer service and satisfaction, employee training, financial planning, marketing and community involvement. An independent panel of industry experts convened at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., the unofficial “RV Capital of the World,” to select the RVB Top 50 from nominated dealers who submitted applications.
In addition to planning the relocation of the Rochester dealership to a newly built Oronoco facility, another major focus for Noble RV this year has been on how to market to the millennial generation by using digital media and new sales and service techniques. “Bringing our employees to the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) convention in Las Vegas in early November was critical to keeping up with the rapidly changing RV industry,” said Mike Noble, president and co-owner. “This achievement would not be possible without the hard work of our team, their dedication to the industry and our loyal customers they serve every day.”
Program coordinators expanded the judges’ panel this year, bringing perspectives from even more areas of RV-industry business specialization. The extra hands also helped make lighter work of the applications received, which were in greater number and detail than any previous year, according to Sherman Goldenberg, publisher of RVBusiness magazine and founder of the Top 50 program. “As a whole, our applying dealers not only gave us more data this year, but they also went to great lengths to tell us their stories and let their personalities shine through. It was a tough job for the judges to narrow it down. Those who made the cut should be very proud of that achievement.”
The 2017 RVBusiness Top 50 Dealer recipients were honored at a Nov. 8 awards reception in front of an all-industry audience of about 400 during the 2017 RV Dealers Association (RVDA) International Convention/Expo at Bally’s Las Vegas. The convention was presented in cooperation with the RVDA’s of both the United States and Canada, and underwritten by the program’s sponsors: Ally Financial Inc., Cummins Power Generation, Airxcel’s Dicor Corp., Dometic Corp., Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp., Lippert Components Inc., NTP-STAG, Protective Asset Protection, Truma and Wells Fargo CDF.
