Carstairs Rv Centre
Fifth Wheels, rv parts, Rv Dealer
In 1989 I had an inclination to start a new business and this is where my venture begins.
My first venture was on October 20th, 1989 with $13 000.00 dollars I started Airdrie Auto and RV Sales Ltd. a little used car lot with 2 employees and myself. I rented 1/2 acre of land and within 6 months I purchased the land out right and I still own the 1/2 acre lot behind Tim Horton's in Airdrie. I sold used cars up until December 1997.
In December 1997 I received my first brand new RV on my lot. I started selling Dutchman, Springdale and Signature. On Dec 06, 1997 the 1st six Springdale's arrived and on Dec 27, 1997 I sold the first two. It was an exciting time for me. I had a vision and was determined to be successful.
In 2001 I bought land in Balzac, AB. I built a building and moved my dealership and I was in business in Balzac for 3 years. On the 1/2 acre lot behind Tim Horton's I started Airdrie Boats.
Then in 2004 I sold the land in Balzac and moved to Carstairs, AB. I rented a 15,000 sq ft building & 3 1/2 acres of land and then in the fall of 2004 I purchased the land and building.
I opened Carstairs RV Centre (A Division of Airdrie Auto & RV Sales Ltd) and my business flourished.
Over the years, Carstairs RV has grown in its current location, as we now offer a large showroom, Parts & Service Centers and a Finance Department.
In 2007 Carstairs RV Centre was named #1 Dealer in Canada for Springdale & Sprinter and for the last 5 years in a row was named #1 Dealer in Canada for Montana.
We picked up Fuzion which are the #1 selling toy-haulers, Flagstaff by Forrest River. We also picked up the Bullet line which is being accepted by the public very well.
Currently we have, in my opinion, the best line up we have ever had including 2012 Class A and Class C motor homes by Thor Motor Coach Company as well as some of the most innovative units in the industry like the Keystone Vantage.
In 2012 we have 13 employees, including myself (President) and my son Jeff as the General Manager.
My venture has turned into a journey in which we are currently on. Things have gone very well for us since we started our first business and have been in business for a total of 21 years. I have always made it our motto that we try and look after our customers to the best of our ability.
Our Future looks towards my son Jeff (General Manager) who is aspiring to buy into the company. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers past and future. We truly appreciate your business, and we're grateful for the trust you've placed in us. We hope to have the pleasure of doing business with you for many years to come.
