RV Care Network sale bannerRV Care network of dealers is holding its national sale of RV parts and supplies this week with over 40 dealers across Canada participating. The event will run through May 20 during Canada’s Victoria Day extended weekend.

RV Care said that a selection of popular products are featured at excellent retail prices in all participating locations. In addition each location has their own in-store specials and spring service specials to help customers prepare for the start of the Canadian RV season.

“We’re a national dealer network so it makes sense to offer our customers a national sale,” said Don Sneyd of Ruston RV Center in Burlington, Ontario. “Using our collective volume and working with our partners at Coast and Dometic, we’re pleased to provide our customers with the best prices they’ll see all year on products they need to start the season.”

Parts managers and dealers throughout the network will be utilizing marketing materials provided by RV Care in store while also promoting the event on their websites and sending emails/mail-outs to their customers. “Being part of something bigger truly is better when it means we can provide our customers with the best prices on products they want and need,” said Peter McAuliffe, parts manager at Vellner Leisure Products in Red Deer, Alberta.

In addition to the local advertising by the dealers, all national online advertising done by RV Care has been converted to promote the sale. Website activity has spiked as a result indicating strong interest and the potential for strong sales over the next 10 days.

The RV Care network is the largest network of independent RV dealers with locations across Canada that are committed to helping the traveling customers of all RV Care and Priority RV Network dealerships.

RV ShowAmid warnings of possible lost jobs and declining revenue for cities and counties, Missouri lawmakers are making another run at reinstating local sales tax on vehicle purchases after Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed an attempt last year.

A Senate transportation committee heard testimony Wednesday (Feb. 6) on the Legislature’s most recent proposal that would allow cities and counties to impose a local sales tax on all sales of motor vehicles, trailers, boats and outboard motors but require voters to decide whether to continue levying it.

At issue is a January 2012 decision by the Missouri Supreme Court, which ruled Greene County could not charge a local sales tax on a man who bought a boat, motor and trailer from a dealer in Maryland. The court drew a distinction between sales taxes, which are collected from in-state retailers, and use taxes, which are levied on products used in Missouri but bought either from an out-of-state retailer or from an individual who does not run a business.

Although the state’s use tax could be imposed on the boat and its accessories, the high court ruled Greene County could not tax them because they were not covered by the local sales tax and county voters had not passed a local use tax.

Lawmakers sought to reverse the court ruling last year. Nixon vetoed the legislation and said counties and cities should have a voter-approved use tax if they want to tax vehicles bought from anywhere besides a Missouri dealership. The governor’s administration estimated last year’s measure would have imposed a retroactive tax on about 122,000 transactions.

Organizations representing Missouri vehicle, RV and boat dealers urged lawmakers to approve the local tax legislation.

Dan Sinclair, whose family owns vehicle dealerships in the St. Louis-area, said Illinois dealers have advertised the potential tax savings if Missouri consumers cross the Mississippi River and buy their vehicles out-of-state.
