Alberta’s largest RV dealer purchases one of the longest family-operated dealerships in Saskatoon

Alberta RV dealer Woody’s RV World has bought Lardner’s Trailer Sales based out of Saskatoon according to a press release.

The prominent dealership has expanded to seven locations in three provinces. While the company is in a growth phase, all business expansion is not taken lightly by the company.

“Woody’s RV World is excited to find an existing dealer that matches our commitment to customer service and our tireless dedication to develop employees,” said Darren Paylor, Woody’s RV World president.

Lardner’s Trailer Sales is one of the longest serving, family operated dealerships in Saskatoon. Owner Kelly Lardner has carried on the tradition of her father after being passed down the business in the 90’s. Lardner was cautious in selecting who would carry-on the legacy started by her family.

“What’s exciting about this opportunity is that Woody’s has the same philosophy about customer care as Lardner’s Trailer Sales,” Lardner said.

Woody’s RV World will continue to expand its dealerships in western Canada to serve a growing customer base.
