RV Dealerships and Interns Make a Strong Partnership

Throughout the years, I have visited many businesses and talked with countless owners and corporate leaders in the RV industry. Unfortunately, I have begun to see a substantial aging in the demographics of staff and management teams and believe the industry is due for a good dose of youthful energy and knowledge. Dealers who attract more youthful employees will find that their energy is contagious, their learning curve is quicker, and they have an almost inherited knowledge of the digital age that many industry veterans still struggle with.

These bright stars need an introduction to the RV industry and the RV industry can do this through internships. RV dealerships like other businesses need to embrace the internship process.  It is cost effective and benefits both the employer and the employee.   In some cases, it’s like a long and extensive interview process as the corporation may eventually hire the intern.

The unlimited, never expiring discount card

Just when I think I have Good Sam Enterprises figured out, they toss out a fastball that leaves me bewildered. That’s how a number of campground owners apparently feel after learning that Good Sam Club recently sent out new membership cards that don’t contain an expiration date.

I’d be tempted to think someone screwed up somewhere in designing the card without an expiration date. But, Lemonis is a shrewd businessman. There has to be some reason behind sending out unexpiring cards.

Dirty tricks or healthy competition?

An RV dealer sent me this photo today and asked me what I thought of the tactic.

Apparently Camping World has erected this billboard less than 100 feet from a competitor’s lot. It’s message is, “We beat this dealers price every time.” 

The same Camping World store hired a mobile billboard to drive back and forth in front of the dealership during an open house event last month. People inside the truck used bullhorns to shout messages at customers walking the dealer’s lots encouraging them to visit the Camping World store.

Sniveling slackers leave me smokin’

I had to laugh yesterday when I read the story about some flat-rate service technicians in Texas and Oklahoma who were suing their RV dealership for overtime pay. 

The Southeast Texas Record reported, “According to the complaint, the defendant would estimate the number of hours they believed it should take the piece work employees to complete a particular job and then would only pay the employees for that amount of time or less. The plaintiffs claim the amount of time paid was arbitrary and had no relationship to the amount charged to the customer.”

Boy, would I like to be on that jury.

Parts Technology: New Options for Easier Physicals

There are a few tricks I have seen over the past 30 years that parts managers have come up with to make the counting process run a little smoother. The most efficient way is to use portable data collectors. A data collector is a barcode scanner with the ability to store what has just been scanned and uses a small keyboard to allow the user to type additional information. In its simplest form, the user scans the barcode and then types the quantity and bin location on the scanner’s keypad.  This process is repeated until all parts have been scanned. Once all the parts have been scanned, the scanner is connected to a computer and the data file is downloaded. This file is then imported into the parts inventory management system which updates the system with current parts quantities.
