We bought a consignment from them in July and were so impressed we went back for service in November. We drove back from Dallas which was way out of our way. We liked the sales and the service. Originally they specialized in Foretravel, Newell and Country Coach. I think many of the Foretravel trade-ins go there but a lot of Foretravel owners use them for service.

You must have them confused with someone else. They have NEVER been known for their service....NEVER. They focus on new coach sales plus used/consignments. High volume dealer. The Foretravel thing is only in the past couple years.....they worked an exclusive deal with Foretravel to build a more affordable Foretravel on a Spartan K3GT chassis which would compete with the King Aire. And no...they have never specialized in Newell...you need to head up the road into the NE corner of OK to find the Newell factory/sales.
But they have sold a number of Country Coaches over the years. And Monaco, of course. Before Travel Supreme went under, they were the leading dealer for that coach. Today they move a LOT of Entegras.

To the best of my knowledge they do not sell new coaches at all, nor did they ever build one. The Foretravel factory is one mile down the road. I can only relate what the Foretravel owners also camped in the lot stated during the week that we stayed there in November. Our Monaco was serviced there each year before we bought it on consignment according to my box of records and receipts.

Are you guys confusing MHSRV with Motorhomes of Texas?
Motorhomes of Texas sells mostly High end used motorhomes not new. Especially foretravel. I think the owners were at one time connected with foretravel.
MHSRV is the High volume new dealer.

Might you have them confused with Motorhome Specialists (MHSRV) Texas RV Dealer, Used RVs for sale, motorhome sales, new RVs ?
Motorhome of Texas, http://www.motorhomesoftexas.com I don't believe, specialize in Entegra!
Just sayin!
Happy Travels!

SRH is correct these are two different dealers. Thanks for the links.

Motorhomes of Texas is in Nacogdoches and MHSRV is in Alvarado.

MHSRV is an Entegra, Thor, and Berkshire dealer, among others, and worked with Foretravel to create the Realm. They sell new, used, and consigned coaches. IMO thy are a very high volume dealer with good prices but don't offer after sale maintenance, yet. I'm told service is on the horizon.

Yeah, sorry...I thought he was referring to MHSRV, located in Alvarado. The other outfit is located next to the Foretravel factory.

MH of Texas IS in Nagadoches, why I thought they had a lot of tradeins from foretravel right down the street

MHSRV in alvarado does have a large service shop, but won't work on 'outside' sold coaches...
