An Update on our Operations

Featured image for An Update on our Operations

Due to covid-19 concerns we extended our traditional holiday shutdown this year. Our showroom was closed but we were still working, answering calls & emails, and there was a ton of them. There is a huge pent up demand for trailers, people recognize that RVs are the safest family vacation & as a result the industry is booming.

Last week we decided that we would re-open the dealership with strict safety precautions to protect both staff & customers. RV sales are available by appointment only. We are greatly limiting numbers & restricting the number of trailers people can see. We are encouraging people to research our website before they arrive. We are currently not taking people into the campground to see trailers but we will be starting that option as soon as we safely can. Parts & accessories are now available by curb side appointment.

This past weekend there was a virtual RV show, it was very different but it was safe & from what I have heard very well attended from the safety of people’s homes. As I virtually visited dealerships across Ontario it became very obvious that trailer inventory across the province is very low. Leisure Time currently has 17 new trailers on the lot to show, last year at this time we had over 70 new trailers in stock. We currently have 67 trailers on order, they are coming in but slowly. We have some trailers that have been on order since last June. We currently have 2 new Northlander Reflections set up on premium sites available for spring move in. We tried to order additional Northlanders for spring delivery & were told that the earliest we could receive our next shipment would be spring 2022, there is that much pent up demand. Inventories of used trailers around the province is even lower. We started getting calls from other dealers last summer wanting to buy used trailers, saying they had nothing to sell. Good used trailers that are properly priced are selling quickly. Demand for everything in the RV industry is huge & the supply is extremely low. If you are interested in selling please let us know.

If anyone needs to get in touch with us we are available by phone, email or by appointment. We are staying safe, getting ready for another busy camping season. We keep hearing that people can’t wait until we open. We look forward to seeing everyone when it is safe.
