RVT.com Reports 30% Increase in Online RV Sales RVT.com says it has seen online RV sales increase 30 percent in the first five months of 2010 over the same period one year ago and expects this trend to continue throughout the summer, typically peak sales time for RVs.

Sumas, WA (PRWEB) June 7, 2010 — RVT.com, the leading Internet classified ad site for new and used RVs for sale, travel trailers, motor homes and campers, said today that its online marketplace has experienced a 30 percent increase in RV sales since the beginning of 2010, and expects that growth to continue throughout the peak summer RV sales season.

“Since January this year, we’ve seen up to a 30 percent increase in RVs sold over the same period in 2009,” said Shawn Friesen, RVT.com marketing director. “Over 2,400 RVs have been sold through RVT.com in the first five months of 2010, and we expect this trend to continue through the summer months, when we typically experience the most RV sales in June and July.”

Friesen noted that Google Insights for Search also shows a 7 percent search volume increase for RV buyer-related keywords such as “RV for sale,” “used RV,” and “RV sales,” an indication that more RV buyers are searching the Internet for listings.

At RVT.com, buyers can search for RVs by type, year, make, length, location and price range. Sellers have the option to list their RV for a 4-, 8- or 12-week period or until it’s sold (the most popular option). All ads are optimized for search engines and social networks, and include photos, video and unlimited text.

Enhanced listing options are also available. The site provides an online ad generator so posting an ad and photos is simple and streamlined, and the RVT Price Checker searches the entire site’s inventory to provide high, low and average prices by vehicle make and model.

For dealers, RVT.com offers a Dealer Management Interface that allows dealers to easily upload and change multiple ads, track email leads and monitor traffic. Multiple listing accounts are available for a low monthly fee.

RVT.com Joins Forces with GetRV.com New partnership combining RV sales and RV rentals means greater choice and enhanced options for RV travelers, used RV owners and RV dealers.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2008 — Two powerful forces in the RV supply industry, RVT.com (www.rvt.com) and GetRv.com (www.getrv.com) have teamed up to offer travelers more ways to hit the open road.

RVT.com is an online classified site offering new and used RVs, including motor homes, trailers, fifth wheels, camper vans and truck campers. The site’s online RV classifieds exceed 40,000 private and dealer listings, which are viewed by more than 10,000 visitors daily.

With the addition of RV Rentals, powered by GetRV.com, RVT customers who may not be ready to commit to a purchase can rent to decide if the RV life is right for them. They can do specific searches for RVs to rent in their local area — virtually anywhere in the United States and in some Canadian cities, and browse through hundreds of Class As, Class Cs, travel trailers, fifth wheels, and pop-ups to find the perfect vehicle for their needs.

“We are always looking for ways to enhance our customers’ web experience,” says Rodney Friesen, Senior Managing Director of RVT.com. “Providing this capability to them demonstrates that we understand they want more options, and helps us to stand out from our competitors.”

Brian Heath, CEO of GetRV.com says that, “according to customer feedback, over 40% of people who rent RVs are interested in purchasing one.”

When ready to explore the idea of RV ownership, visitors of GetRV.com, which average 5,500 daily in winter and up to 9,500 per day in the summer months, can simply click on RVs for sale to be linked to the search engine powered by RVT.com to search the site’s extensive array of RV buy and sell classifieds. “In addition, RV owners and dealers who have not considered renting list their RVs on our site, which is an excellent way to increase cash flow,” says Heath.

“Joining forces makes perfect sense,” adds Friesen. “Together, RVT.com and GetRV.com can serve our customers at any stage in their RV travel adventure.”
