Podcast 163 features Macdonald’s RV

This week’s guest is Karen Macdonald, the current owner of Macdonalds RV in Plainville, Mass., and the granddaughter of the man who founded the dealership.

The dealership is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, which makes it likely the longest continuously running family owned RV dealership in America.

Macdonald describes what the dealership was like when she started working there as a young girl who would be dropped off at the dealership by the school bus every afternoon.

She provides a brief history of the company, but also describes some of the ways customers and products have changed over the last 70 years.

There aren’t many female-owned RV dealerships in America, and the fact that Karen’s location is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year is a testimony not only to her leadership, but to the foundation of service to customers that was instilled by her father and grandfather.
