Tom Raper RVs Celebrates 50 Years

For Immediate Release



Tom Raper RVs is celebrating their 50th year in business with a 50 Hour Sale from Wednesday, June 25 through Saturday, June 28th at their Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio and Richmond, Indiana locations.

Customers visiting their showrooms will be treated to free lunch each day along with commemorative gifts, special offers and prize drawing that will highlight the half-century celebration.

In 1964, Tom Raper sold his first camper off of a dirt lot in Richmond, Indiana. Since then, Tom Raper RVs has grown into one of the largest dealerships in the country while selling nearly 100,000 recreational vehicles over the 50 Year History of the business.

In 2002, David Bane bought the dealership from Tom Raper. With Bane at the helm, Tom Raper RVs has added stores in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004 and Columbus, Ohio in 2012 that complement existing 66-acre campus in Richmond, Indiana.

The goal of each of our 200 employees is to meet or exceed our customers' expectations. If for any reason we ever fall short, I ask that you please let us know.

"On behalf of the Tom Raper RV's Family "Thank You" for the past Fifty Years."

I remember when all Tom sold was pickup bed caps, or toppers as some say. He had a very large inventory of them. In spite of a few complainers Tom Raper RV must be doing something right to be in business for 50 years. A lot of RV dealers have come and gone in that period of time.
Congratulations on 50 years of sales and service.
