Howdy folks! We wanted to let you know that RV Sales will be closed for the Fourth of July from July 2-July 6 so we can go camping and celebrate being independent in the greatest country in the world!

Come, shop, and visit! If you’re interested in being a vendor, spaces are FREE but limited in quantity, so call or email us today (505-832-2400 or to reserve your space. We are looking forward to seeing you all!


We usually look forward to writing you Christmas letters with news from Excel, RV Sales, and our families. Unfortunately, today we are writing you with far sadder news.  Bryan Tillet informed us yesterday afternoon that Peterson Industries is closing immediately.  We were heartbroken and surprised to learn of this news because we have had a strong partnership with the Excel family since 1993.   We all knew that the recession in 2008-09 was hard on RV Manufacturers, and we were thrilled when Peterson Industries was able to streamline expenses and weather the storm.   Unfortunately, they got so far behind  that it became impossible to dig back out.  We hope that you will share a few positive thoughts or prayers for the employees who have kept Excel at the top of the charts since 1966.

We realize that you will have many questions and concerns regarding how this will affect you and your RV and we encourage [...]

Peterson Industries, manufacturer of Excel 5th wheels, recently announced that they are partnering with RV Armor, Inc. to be the exclusive manufacturer to offer the RV Armor® “Lifetime” roof on new RVs.

Excel’s President, Bryan Tillett, first met RV Armor President, Lee Thaxton at the PRVCA show in Hershey, PA. in September.  “At first we were reluctant to offer a new roof that promised to be the next “miracle roof” explained Tillett.  “But after meeting Lee and seeing the product being applied first hand, I was convinced RV consumers need a maintenance free roof like this.”

The optional RV Armor® “Lifetime” roof will come with a lifetime warranty, provided by RV Armor, Inc.  If the roof should fail, or a water leak occur, RV Armor will not only warranty it, including material and labor, they will come to the customer’s location to do the work.  What’s more, the warranty follows the VIN # of the coach, not the owner.

The RV Armor® “Lifetime” roof is available now on all new Excel 5th wheels.  For more information on the RV Armor® ”Lifetime” roofsystem, click [...]

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!  We all need some time with our families during the holidays.  We will be Closed Saturday December 20- Monday January 5.  Normal business hours will return on Tuesday January 6. Sorry for any inconvenience and we look forward to seeing you in 2015.

Is your Rig one of the RV’s that were affected by the recall? Find out more and check your locks today.

Jack Yenne, Customer Service Manager at Peterson Industries, encourages everyone to check your cooling/heating, refrigeration and LP systems before heading out for summer camping trips.

Obstructions around the cooling fan on the roof can bring your fun to a halt, so be sure a neighborhood bird family hasn’t nested in the wrong place. Also, check to be sure the cooling fins are not dented or plugged with foreign material. Dents can be combed out if they aren’t severe, and fins can be blown or washed out.

The same principle applies to your refrigerator and furnace. Bird and spider nests in and around the burner tubes keep the system from igniting or burning properly. And don’t forget the water system. Pump filters and faucet strainer screens need to be cleaned regularly.

A little maintenance goes a long way toward keeping you from dealing with problems when you should be enjoying the summer. If you haven’t already [...]

The 2014 spring Excel Club Rally was an amazingly fun time. We got to enjoy great food, spend time with excellent friends, and make new friends who were there with their Excel’s for the first time. From ice cream and pie socials to big meals and bingo, this was an event that will go down in the history books. Thank you all for attending, and we appreciate all of the extra attention that you gave to Ralph as he recovered from his surgery. See you at the next camp out if not sooner.

Ralph and Kathy
