KZ Durango 2500KZ dealers are expecting a very strong sales year, based on the results of this spring’s RV shows.

Show attendance was up and sales were “very pleasantly way up,” says John Gajewski, sales manager of King’s Campers in Wausau, Wis. “We almost doubled our record attendance at our open house, which we’ve had on the same weekend for the last 16 years,” he said. “We got maybe 6,000 people coming through over four days.”

John Petrie, president of Niagara Trailers in St. Davids, Ontario, had similar experiences. “Our first show we had an 87 percent rise in unit sales over last year,” he said. The Sportsmen Classic, Spree Escape and Coyote travel trailers by KZ did very well at his dealership’s three shows, but what surprised him was how well the bigger fifth wheels were received.
