NIRVC Washington DC

I heard that NIRVC is going to open a new Center in the greater Wash DC area, does anyone have a location and time frame, it would help folks in New England to have a choice as to where we make our purchases of new Coaches??
Thanks

That would really be great. I think I had heard something about a new location, but I had assumed it was Washington state?? ... I am still waiting on the announcement that they are opening a location in south Florida as well.

If I were a betting man, I’d bet this is in the future of both locations. Brett has a great vision for providing service for all of us.

NIRVC Wash. DC

Both of those locations would be perfect and would reaffirm my strong feeling that my next Coach will come from them.

How about a Southern California location not around LA! In all of Southern California, the only dealer I have heard of that owners like is Tom Lindstrom but that is a tough location for many to get to. We have millions and millions of people here and obtaining service is almost impossible. There are many independent shops but many do not work on or know all our complex systems in Newmar coaches.

Having an NIRVC location in the Washington D.C. area and particularly along the route-81 corridor would be amazing. Fingers crossed.

I'm not speaking on behalf of NIRVC, but I believe their facility in Las Vegas was opened because it was as close to southern California as they could get without being in southern California.

S Ca would be great area for NIRV but Holland, with 2 locations and Tom Lindstrom have the area pretty much locked up for Newmar. Holland doesn't have a great service reputation and Lindstrom Doesn't due service unless it is a warranty item on a coach purchased there. Your best bet in S Ca is to use Newserv, Newmars mobile service option.

NIRVC Wash DC

Would welcome NIRVC anywhere in FL. Some healthy competition would benefit us.

That's pretty much what I have heard. Newmar never even gave me the option of their mobile service-I will look into that. I do believe that if they had lemon laws for RV's, many would be bought back. RV owners are some of the kindest most patient customers known to man and love their RV's in spite of the challenges of owning one.

Glad you got a chuckle out of that Clemson. No, I mean it. Owners are willing to drive to Indiana regularly to get their rigs worked on and North Carolina for chassis work and never complain about all the time and fuel to do that. I could drive to Las Vegas in 4 hours but even that is a big inconvenience for me. Once rig is out of warranty-real soon- I will continue to do what I can myself and use local independent shops when I can't. I have a local shop I have used for years without all the drama. I can buy a whole lot of parts for what it would cost to run around the country getting things done. I am kind but not really that patient!

I would love a NIRVC in the DC area, except the traffic can be horrendous. I was thrilled when they opened the one in Nashville because that's only a little over 8 hrs away but DC would be a couple hours closer. I have said our next Newmar would be a FPU because that's only 4 hrs. from us.
