153737458489399.pngRV Search Assistant launched with tens of thousands of listings which are represented by CellTuck clients. RV Search Assistant is now inviting all dealers to include their inventory.

Inventory is updated every night.

“We’ve seen so many classified sites come and go but RV Search Assistant is different,” said Angela Cellucci, director of CellTuck. “RV Search Assistant is an extremely powerful tool for both consumers and the listing dealer. Our site is smart and understands where the visitor is located.  Any search -- by type, manufacturer, condition, or brand -- will deliver inventory closes to them giving the prospect an immediate opportunity to recognize their local options.”

Key features:

All inventory searches deliver results by zip code. This insures that the inventory published is closest to the website visitor.

All inventory clicks to directly to the RV dealer website. RV Search Assistant does
not intercept any click throughs.

The site includes floor plans, 360 virtual tours, video, brochures, and specs-based on availability from the manufacturer.

The site includes a floor plan directory for easy reference.  

“Every listing that shows in the browser shows the distance from the visitor along with the RV Dealer information,”  Cellucci said. “Without ever leaving the browser, the visitor can view 360 virtual tours and/or video when available. Once the visitor clicks through onto any unit, the traffic is pushed directly to the dealer. This is extremely important to the listing dealer. We do not intercept any traffic or prospect information.”

Cellucci said the RV Search Assistant is the only consumer site that features such a large combined directory of floor plans, 360 virtual tours, video, and brochures all sorted by manufacturer and brand.

“We started the site with our client inventory,” Cellucci said. “There are tens of thousands of listings already.  We are now inviting no-clients to take advantage of this opportunity too.”
