Top 50 RV Dealers 2015RVBusiness has named its 2016 Top 50 RV Dealers and over 50% of them use IDS’s Astra dealer management software to manage their business. The premiere online and print publication for the RV industry will honor these recipients Wednesday, November 9th, as part of the RV Dealers International Convention/Expo festivities in Las Vegas.

Four IDS customers will also be recognized as “Blue Ribbon” dealership for their excellence in demonstrating best practices in every professional aspect of their business including profitability, employee relations, technician training, charitable giving, and placing a high priority on consumer care. These customers include Affinity RV (Prescott, Ariz.), Fraserway RV (Abbotsford, B.C.), Mount Comfort RV (Greenfield, Ind.) and Princess Craft (Round Rock, Tex.).
