Couple choose motorhome lifestyle at Findlay RV

Opened in 1961, Findlay RV has made great strides over the years. Motor homes offer endless opportunities for those people who enjoy the nomadic lifestyle.

Chris Calhoon and his wife, Rina, fit the mold of motor home enthusiasts . Chris Calhoon, a former Army colonel who retired in 1993, owns a real estate company in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Calhoons traded in a 1999 Fleetwood Bounder 39Z for a 2019 Fleetwood Pace Arrow that they purchased from Findlay RV.

“The coach has dual air conditioning and the paint holds up really well because it’s not cured and has full-body paint,” said sales consultant Robert Mason. “In addition, it has a diesel with a Cummins engine, so it likewise holds up very well.”

The couple has done business with Findlay Lincoln and was pleased with the excellent customer service and discovered Findlay RV.

“We were ready for an RV anyway, but we forgot about this dealership,” Rina Calhoon said. “We heard about the dealership from one of the sales consultants over at Findlay Lincoln.”

The couple found the RV they wanted on FindlayRV.com.

“We came over here (Findlay RV), and it’s been an incredible experience,” she said.

“We got a great price, thanks to the general manager (Reuben Figueroa),” Rina Calhoon said. “We will probably take this to Alaska. We’re also going to California, Arizona and Utah. Chris is from California, so we’re going there because he has family there. When we travel, all five of our dogs go with us, too.”
