rv-pro.com April 2020 • RV PRO • 39 time in the desert, too. Often, customers choose to accessorize their units with solar panels, lithium batteries, inverters and a wide variety of similar items. Parris RV largely sells towables, although there are a few moto- rhomes sprinkled in. Rockwood is a perennial favorite of Brett Parris ("I absolutely love the brand"), for which the dealership sold 450 units last year. Lance also is a good seller and toy hauler manufacturers are numerous. They include Attitude, Stryker, Highlander, Iconic, Vortex, Sandstorm, Sandsport, Powerlite, all four XLR brands, Cyclone, and Gravity. Stryker is the dealership's No.1-selling travel trailer toy hauler, while Attitude is the best- selling fifth wheel toy hauler. Pop-up trailers, such as tent trailers and A-frames, also have become a niche for the dealership and account for about 200 sold units annually. Parris RV has departmentalized its accounting and all employees – from sales to techs to detailers – are incentivized through commission. "Everyone gets paid off the bottom line of their department and can make more money," Brett Parris says. "No matter what they do, they're all paid on one form of commission. Right down to a detailer – if they want to punch a flag and clean an RV, then they can get a bonus for doing a good job, doing it faster and doing it right. "We're committed to doing a good job and making it profitable. We have a nice facility, we pay well and have a good reputation. We're fortunate to have good people who want to come work for us," he adds. "If you're going to be in this business, why not be with the best? "And any properties that become available? I'll buy. I'll just keep expanding." Service Advisor Danny Tippets assists a customer on the phone. The dealership has seven service advisors to assist customers. R V P R O D U C T S G R O U P ® 365 W.
