22 • RV PRO • January 2021 rv-pro.com dealership carries are Alliance, Coachmen, Cruiser, Forest River and Keystone. "We've had the Keystone Springdale for a few years and they've become our bread and butter," Stanger says, adding that the RVs are built in Oregon, just one state away. "The quality is awesome and our customers love them. It's also what we use for our rental fleet. "We also started carrying Paradigm by Alliance because we really like their business model," he adds. "So far, it's been great and they're an amazing company to work with." Annual revenues for 2020 are tracking to be $6 million, up from $5 million in 2019. When the COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, Stanger says it weighs heavily on his mind as to whether recent newcomers to the RV life will return to their former recreation ways of travel and leisure. "All the people who have jumped onto RVing really enjoy it, however. It's just so much fun," he says. The majority of Xtreme RV 's cus- tomers come from southern Idaho, and the dealership sits a mile away from Snake River Canyon, which lies just to the north (Twin Falls is known as a "gateway to Snake River Canyon"). Trails along the canyon rim lead to the tow- ering Perrine Bridge, which offers pan- oramic views and is a popular launching point for base jumpers. At the town's northern edge, Perrine Coulee Falls tum- bles over a cliff. "There's a lot of activity that goes on in Twin Falls. Base jumpers from across the U.S. and world are always there," Stanger says. As the dealership's RV fleet has grown, with new units selling off lots in record numbers, he says a near-future market might be in used RVs that will be bigger Above: Employee Connie Spence performs checks on a rental unit. The dealership started its rentals business in 2018, catering to hunters, base jumpers and those wanting to explore Yellowstone National Park. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the rental business, prompting Xtreme RV to add units to its fleet. Left: RV Specialist Jon Reynolds (seated at right) finishes up with clients. The dealership has quadrupled its yearly RV sales in the past two years, thanks in part to expanded its sales force.
