40 • RV PRO • August 2020 rv-pro.com RV M A N U FA C T U R E R S D ick Grymonprez is the first to admit park models are not for everyone. Park models remain a niche market within the RV industry for a number of reasons: they require designated places to locate them; they tend to need someone to deliver and set them up; and they generally cost more than the average travel trailer or fifth wheel. "It's a totally different business," Grymonprez says, comparing the RV and park model retailer business. "A typical RV dealer's business is usually so good, they don't want to take the time to sell park models." And while it may not make sense for every RV dealer to retail them, the businesses that do sell them generally do well with them, adds Grymonprez, director of park model sales for Michigan-based Skyline Champion's park model division is a power player in the niche RV category thanks to its focus on model customization and offering residential-style flourishes.
