Meet the Berzowskis Spring 2019: NC & SC

Jim and Robin are back on the road again in search of warmer weather. On this trip, the Berzowskis are heading towards the Keys in their Honda CR-V and towing their GO! Along the way, they are stopping at SylvanSport dealers and giving them a little taste of the GO Life.

We visited ground zero, the birthplace of the GO!!

We got a great tour of the new facilities and factory, hosted by Seyl, Earl, Tom D, and Tom R.  It is so impressive to see the pieces and parts and the manufacturing process. Each component is carefully manufactured so that the end product is absolutely top quality.  On top of that, the company is populated across the board with intelligent, caring people, passionate about the world around them and the great outdoors!!

We got to see the brand new SylvanSports product: Over Easy Camp Kitchen.  As expected, this is a well thought out design, created with high quality materials.  It provides ample storage space and an amazing amount of ‘counterspace’. That might be my favorite aspect, the bamboo work spaces!

Earl shared his excitement about some other new products that SylvanSport will be offering in the future – can’t wait to see them!!

The team looked over our GO, LEO, and declared him roadworthy for the trip to Alaska this summer!

As we continued in a southerly direction, we stopped at Bob Ledford’s Adventure Motorhomes in Greer, SC.  They have an awesome variety of outdoor living options!

Loren (considered the resident GO expert) greeted us.  We talked to her and Josh about the GO and GOzeebo. Jim shared a trick for helping to release the stabilizer jacks.  Josh has new owners picking up both tomorrow, so they set them up in the showroom in preparation. I mentioned that Josh might want to suggest that the new owners travel with work gloves and a knee pad, to improve their set up experience!  Kathy sold the first and the most GOs at Bob Ledford’s; she calls it the Cadillac of tents, and so much more! We met Carl, the sales manager, and Dave, the owner.

Earl stopped by; it seemed it was just to give Dave a hard time, but they probably took care of some business.  After Earl left, Dave shared that Earl is a super GO salesman (although, I think we already guessed that!)

Dave gathered a group of the sales team and had us observe while they set up and broke down a GO a couple times, to be sure that they all know the ins and outs.  After successful completion, they all felt they deserved certificates from GO U.  We agree!!

The team came outside to see a GO in the wild – our LEO – they love him!

We are on our way to Charleston, SC – we’ve heard it is a lovely city!

  1. Yesterday I met Jim and Robin Berzowski in Ocala, Florida at the Gander Outdoors store. They were extremely nice people who answered several questions I had about setup and closeup and miscellaneous others. I would like to run into them again sometime while camping. They have a standing invitation to stop in The Villages, FL anytime they come through Florida.

    1. Hi John, it was great meeting you, also! It’s time to get GOing ☺! Hope to meet you out there on the road!!

  2. Jim & Robin – I noticed the picture of your Go that it seems you have some sort of panels that guards your equipment on the deck. I too have thought about building something along those lines. Does it work? What are the dimension? What kind material are they made out of? More pictures please.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Brian,
      Jim made these new panels, which like the GO, are multi-functional! There are additional pictures in the previous posting (Meet the Berzowskis Spring 2019: Heading Out). They are made of 1/4 in plywood and the legs (because they are also benches) are 2x2s. I don’t recall the exact dimentions, but we measured the GO and made them custom to fit in as panels and for the legs on the benches to be long enough to use extend our the bed area (pictures will be in a future post). Get out and GO!!

  3. We are the Sylvan Go “new owners” mentioned in this message. Thank you, Jim & Robin, for your advice of knee pads and work gloves. This will be helpful as we take “Sylvia” on her maiden voyage to Croft State Park this weekend.
    We would love to follow you on your travels and learn more about your GO experience as we begin our adventures.

    1. Hi Hollie and Owen,
      Congratulations on your new family member, Sylvia!!
      We hope you have years of wonderful travel adventures ahead. Another tip: bring extra blocks to use under the leveling jacks, in case your campsite is muddy or sandy or you wind up on a very uneven campsite.
      For many great ideas and suggestions, contact SylvanSport to join their GO Owners Facebook group – there are so many passionate and innovative GO owners who generously share advice, pictures, and questions 🙂
      Maybe we’ll see you on the GO!

  6. Hi again Jim and Robin. How did you get to Brevard, SC in time before they closed…or maybe it was during the night. From here in Florida it is an 8 hour ride (without a trailer). Did you drive all of 8 hours? If I can keep a schedule like you do, I’ll make all the destinations I want.
    Best regards, John Merli

    1. Hi John,

      The posts are a bit time delayed. This post was from our visits to the SylvanSport factory and Bob Ledford’s on February 22nd, BEFORE we met you in Ocala on March 21st! Keep watching, and you’ll see posts from the rest of our trip!!

      Regards,
