Mark Erdman, company GM, related “This year’s show turned out very well. Many dealers are regulars at our show and they know we offer great deals and so much more. The number of dealers at this year’s show was down a touch due to scheduling issues – but overall sales were up nearly 20%. Overall, right 40 dealers came with about 70 people in the house – not including good rep and factory support plus our staff.”
