AmeriGO RV Club, which aims to be ”the ultimate RV club and online community dedicated to RV enthusiasts,” today (Oct. 22) unveiled the company’s exclusive coast-to-coast Certified RV Dealership Program.

According to a press release, AmeriGO’s new RV Dealership Program is being strategically developed to “deliver a powerful brand” backed by specialized marketing initiatives, advanced proprietary online distribution services, e-commerce opportunities and benefits for RVers and AmeriGO’s affiliated RV dealers.

“We are thrilled to present AmeriGO’s Certified Dealership Program as a one-of-a-kind affiliate program whose dealer partners serve the highly-engaged RV enthusiasts,” said Joe McAdams, chairman of AmeriGO RV Club. “At AmeriGO, we are committed to enhancing the overall experience for RVers, adding value and security for the RV enthusiast. As an AmeriGO affiliate, a dealership further distinguishes their dedication and commitment to the RV community.”

Jeff Martin, vice president of dealer relations for AmeriGo RV Club, said, “For AmeriGO Club members, the goal is to establish a coast-to-coast network of certified dealerships that will offer AmeriGO members peace of mind as they ride the open road across North America. These outstanding retailers will also provide amazing deals and quality workmanship every mile of their travels should they need assistance, as well as unparalleled deals and offers on RV services, parts and accessories, and more. For our dealer partners, the Certified RV Dealership Program is being developed to strengthen their businesses with initiatives designed to make new customers aware of their retail stores through a powerful affiliation with the AmeriGO brand.”
