RV Show features custom craftsmanship
Marc and Janice Patton loved what they saw at The Daily Sentinel’s annual RV Show Friday morning.
In particular, they were blown away by the 2012 Fuzion 412 which features flat-screened televisions, island kitchen seating and multiple bathrooms. The full-sized comfort trailer is regularly priced at $78,995 but available to show shoppers only at the special price of $63,660.
“It’s expensive but well worth it,” Marc said.
Richard Clark was impressed with the craftsmanship of the newer RVS. “Humphrey carries one that was built by the Amish so you know it’s well-constructed,” he said.
Those RVs are made by a company called KZ RV in Shipshewana, Indiana. That company employs many Amish, said Ken Bunge, general manager of Humphrey RV and Trailer. Unlike other RV manufacturers which typically only offer a one year warranty, that company offers a two-year warranty. “They must be built pretty well or they wouldn’t do that,” Bunge said.
The show has RVs and trailers of all sizes and prices, from $10,000 to more than $80,000, from local retailers including Humphrey RV and Trailer, Bob Scott RVs, Summers Rocky Mountain Motors and RV, Mattas Marine and RV, and Centennnial RV. Other vendors are also available to help with RV needs such as Big Dog Satellite TV and Rhino Linings of Grand Junction. Financing is available on-site with Western Rockies Federal Credit Union.
The show will take place until 6 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Mesa County Fairgrounds, 2785 U.S. Highway 50. Admission is free. More information and dealer websites are available at http://www.gjsentinel.com/rvshow.
