Dave and Gloria Pierce, owners of Dave's Claremore RV, joined the New & Used RV industry in 1979. They started in a small building on historic Route 66 in Claremore, OK near Tulsa, Oklahoma. They had a vision of what kind of business they wanted to build.
First and foremost was customer approval. They wanted to achieve the highest level of satisfaction possible. They wanted to be known as the company who cares. A friendly atmosphere was important to make clients feel welcome and keep the small-town hospitality. Cleanliness was a necessity. Everything from the restrooms to the parking lot must be kept neat and clean. Professionalism was an integral part of their goal. Last but not least, they wanted to create an environment where employees could achieve personal growth and feel appreciated.
As they worked to achieve their vision, Dave's RV expanded every year. The business outgrew the facility. In order to continue to provide the level of service their customers had come to expect, Dave and Gloria purchased acreage three miles further south on Route 66 with plans to build.
Construction of a high-tech RV facility was completed in March 2001. With nineteen acres to utilize, inventory was increased. Major manufacturers including Forest River, Prime Time, and Thor Motor Coach are represented in hundreds of towable RVs, expandable trailers, class C and class A motorhomes, as well as diesel pusher RVs.
RV service has always been the cornerstone of Dave's Claremore RV. Twenty-two service bays with fourteen-foot high doors can accommodate even the largest RVs. Skilled technicians perform complete repairs on all brands of RVs and appliances.
Seventy-five experienced, qualified personnel are dedicated to customers' long-term satisfaction. Everyone at Dave's RV is detail-oriented, striving to make owning an RV a positive, enjoyable experience.
Dave and Gloria Pierce take personal pride in the reality of their vision. They continue to treat people the way they would like to be treated. They also believe in the RV business. Having raised their children on RV vacations, they know RVing is a wonderful, family-oriented lifestyle. Dave and Gloria are optimistic for the future of RVs, especially since their daughter Stephanie has started taking the reins of the business. The vision remains in their minds as they continue to serve their customers and employees while expanding and improving the dealership each year.
