Their South Windsor, CT store led the charge with the sale with a combination of nearly seven hundred Jayco travel trailers and fifth wheels.  An outstanding achievement considering Pete’s RV Center was not ranked in the top ten last year.

“It was difficult walking out of the awards ceremony last year knowing we had just missed the cut for top ten.  That disappointment diminished with this year’s announcement”, reflected co-owner Chad Shepard.  “It was a thrilling moment accepting the award from Jayco’s founding family, the Bontragers.  I did so on behalf of everybody at Pete’s RV who worked so hard to help propel us into the number three ranking.”

Established in 1968, Jayco, Inc., manufactures and markets towable and motorized RVs through its Jayco, Starcraft, Entegra Coach, and Highland Ridge RV divisions.

Pete’s RV Center is an extraordinary recreational vehicle dealer group with three New England locations and a fourth in Schererville, Indiana.  A RV sales and service provider since 1952, Pete’s RV Center carries an extensive inventory of Keystone, Forest River, Airstream, and of course, Jayco-branded campers and motorhomes.
