The iRV2 2017 International Rally Team is pleased to announce that Don & Guila Sellers will be joining us in Branson. This will be the 4th time that Don & Guila have supported our rally by providing both a Seminar and Sales opportunities at their booth. Don & Guila will be bringing in a number of RV products such as the Aero Cosmetics Waterless Wash and Wax. I've just started to use the wash and it works really well. I'm sure there's more to learn during Seminar #1 on Monday, 9/18 at 9:00 AM. Thank you Don & Guila.

The iRV2 2017 International Rally Team is pleased to announce that representative Paul Maddox will be joining us in Branson. HWH, located in Moscow, IA, HWH is the preeminent hydraulic RV Company in the industry. Paul will be assisting members with service related issues and will be presenting a seminar on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 2:00PM, concluding at 3:00PM.

"HWH® was founded in 1967 and for the first 17 years of business they designed & manufactured machines and hydraulics for agricultural customers like John Deere and Caterpillar. During those early years in the agriculture industry, HWH® discovered a niche for supplying hydraulic leveling systems to the RV industry (because the RV industry was currently borrowing agricultural equipment to patch their needs). HWH® has since led the RV industry in hydraulic and air leveling technology. They've introduced countless innovative hydraulic slide-out systems to the market and have brought many other innovative hydraulic/air solutions to the RV market ranging from hydraulic step systems to air suspension systems to saddle-rack systems. HWH® is proud to play a part in enriching the RV experience for hundreds of thousands of RVers throughout the world"
