The variety of uses, innovative design and engineering set the GO apart in a sea of towables. In addition to showcasing the capabilities and possibilities of the GO, SylvanSport will also introduce dealers to the “GO Customer”, a new demographic for RV dealerships and the RV industry as a whole, as well as unveil several new camping products.

“2017 has been a really strong year for SylvanSport and our network of dealers across the country,” SylvanSport Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter says. “The growth has been great and we’re coming to Elkhart with our arms open wide, to welcome additional premium dealers to the SylvanSport family.”

SylvanSport will be pulling out all of the stops to provide dealers with the full GO experience at Elkhart. In attendance will be President Tom Dempsey, Vice President of Sales Earl Hunter, Marketing Associate Seyl Park and Production Supervisor Patrick Bailey. From company history and direction, to sales and marketing, to manufacturing and production topics - dealers will be able to learn, not just about the products, but the company behind the products.

“While we have some great new camping products that we are launching at Elkhart, our main focus this year is to provide the complete GO experience for our current and potential dealers,” Vice President of Marketing Kyle Mundt says. “What that means is demonstrating the versatility, quality and design, meeting the company behind the GO and introducing the ‘GO customer’ to the family of dealers that we have representing our brand.”

For the 2017 Elkhart RV Open House, SylvanSport will be located at the northwest corner of County Road 6 and Jeanwood Drive.
