rv-pro.com September 2018 • RV PRO • 99 to launch Vermont Country Campers in 1996, sharing the location of the other dealer. "The other guy had a short-term plan, but my dad had a long-term plan to grow it into a family business," Gregoire says. In 1999, the Gregoires bought their current location on U.S. Highway 2, nestled between the Winooski River and a wooded hillside. The dealership has acquired surrounding land so that the property now covers 24 acres. On the site, the dealership has a 6,500-square-foot building and room to park hundreds of campers for sale. About 40 employees work at the dealership. The 10 service technicians use three service bays and an 8,000-square-foot concrete pad. "Our service techs are amazing," Gregoire says. "They will work in sun, rain, or snow. … They will work in any conditions to get our customers back on the road." This advertisement is from the early days of Vermont Country Campers. The dealership began humbly in 1996 with four pop-up campers and has since grown by leaps and bounds over the years, thanks to its focus on carrying in- demand products and its emphasis on service after the sale.
