As the new general manager of Findlay RV at 4530 Boulder Highway, Reuben Figueroa has the golden opportunity to watch people live the lifestyle many dream about.
With three of the top-selling brands in the industries - Winnebago, Fleetwood and Forest River - Findlay RV has more than 30 years in the industry. And Figueroa is enthusiastic about the future of the RV business.
"Even when the gasoline prices were soaring, people still want to have fun and they are not going to be deterred," said Figueroa, a native of Tucson, Ariz., who has lived in Las Vegas since 1994. "This enables the true RVer to go where and when they want to go. It's a home away from home and gets them to places they have never been able to visit. From the beaches to the mountains, this gives them the chance to visit Utah, the beaches or anywhere else. You can bet that everyone with an RV is making plans to have their vacation in cooler climate.
"It's called dry camping and that's when they can go out with no need for landline power or water. The motor homes are all self-sufficient, so once you set up camp, there's no need to go anywhere else."
Owning a motor home can benefit pet enthusiasts.
"Not only can they take their family members, but they can also take their pets when they own a motor home," added Figueroa, who has been with Findlay RV for four years. "In fact, their pets are their family."
Financing rates also are good now, said Figueroa, who formerly served as the dealership's general sales manager.
"Right now, rates are as low as 2.99 percent," Figueroa said. "Also, since a motor home is considered a second home, the interest is tax deductible. Financing is available up to 20 years."
Findlay RV employees have welcomed Figueroa.
"Ruben absolutely deserves the promotion he received," said Rose Maguire, who has been with Findlay RV for 17 years. "He is a team player and makes working here a fun experience."
