46 • RV PRO • August 2020 rv-pro.com "If I see a model that sells really well, I try to promote that floorplan at all of our plants, but they don't all build it exactly alike," Grymonprez says. "If you like what the plant in Mansfield, Texas, offers, you better buy from there, because if I try to build it in Florida, because of material differences, it may not come in looking exactly the same it does from Mansfield." He was recently talking to a campground owner in Tennessee who wanted five park models that will eventually ship from Texas because the owner preferred the way that plant built them. "Some of the plants ship a long way because customers just like what that plant offers and they want to buy from us. We have the advantage over some companies because I usually have a plant that's closer to them than another manufacturer would have," Grymonprez says. Not surprisingly, not every plant offers everything offered by Skyline Champion, according to Grymonprez, but every plant offers some unique things that customers don't normally see in a park model. Grymonprez even recalls people whose property could have contained either a manufactured home or a park model choosing the latter, despite having less than 400 square feet of living space and being almost twice as expensive "because it's so unique and cool-looking." Grymonprez, Kamin and Read are pictured on the deck of one of many park models Athens Park sells. The company is able to customize models to customer needs and wants.
