Mobile Adventure Gear manufacturer forms partnerships with world’s largest banks.
Brevard, NC – JANUARY 26, 2017 – SylvanSport’s worldwide presence grew over 500% from 2015 to 2016. For 2017, the maker of the award-winning GO camper continues its dealer expansion and support through partnerships with Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, Ally, HSBC, Northpoint Capital and Bank of the West. Offering dealer floorplanning through some of the world’s largest banks, SylvanSport can now provide more flexibility for their ever-growing dealer network.
“We’re very pleased about our new relationship with these major financial institutions”, says Tom Dempsey, President of SylvanSport. “It’s a validation of our past performance, and even more so, the prospect of an exciting future.”
Vice President of Sales, Earl Hunter, states “this really takes us to another level in terms of what we can offer our current dealers, as well as, opens up possibilities for new dealers.”
With its outdoor adventure background, SylvanSport brings a young, active consumer persona to the RV industry. According to the Outdoor Industry Association, outdoor recreation provides $650 billion in direct consumer spending each year, providing over 6 million direct jobs in the United States. Within this industry, there has always been a gap between the outdoor adventure enthusiast and the recreational vehicle market. SylvanSport has positioned itself as a leader in bridging this gap by creating a new hybrid market category.
“GO, our flagship product, is the perfect gateway to bring a younger, more active customer into the RV dealership. As this population looks to get off the ground while they camp, but still want to bring all of their toys with them, GO is the ‘first step’ to RV-style camping”, continues Dempsey. “And, with our new partnership with Wells Fargo and other banking partners, we will make our product line accessible to more dealers and introduce an even greater number of outdoor enthusiasts to this segment of the market.”
