    The Kranzley Family of Morrow, OH - 2012 Rpod 178 Ohio

    Waiting for Photos

    Lalande Family - Rpod 179 Ontario

    After much research and tire kicking of RV's in my area (Northern Ontario, Canada), and being thoroughly disappointed with being gouged by local RV dealers, I decided to send an e-mail to Couch's RV Nation for a quote on a Forest River R Pod. I promptly received a quote and soon thereafter got a telephone call from Ray Crain. Ray and I discussed all aspects of the purchase, including the information on their website pertaining to importing a vehicle into Canada. Over the course of the next couple weeks after signing the purchase order, I had a number of questions with respect to my purchase. Ray promptly and professionally answered all my questions in a timely manner. Ray even suggested a nearby hotel and mentioned that we'd get preferred rates if we said we were doing business with Couch's RV. This tip was much appreciated, as we enjoyed a nice hotel for a very reasonable rate. When we got to the dealership, we were directed to the service garage, where our camper was waiting for us. Bob Evans, the service technician, demonstrated and explained in detail, every aspect of our new camper, patiently answering the many questions that we had. Bob also helped in setting up the towing and explained how to dial-in the brake controller on my truck for best performance. After the demonstration, we met with Kendra Saylor and completed all the paperwork that we'd need to import the camper into Canada. Kendra was very courteous and professional. She explained all the paperwork and promptly assigned someone to obtain the temporary plate for our camper. Kendra even suggested where we could pick-up a nice lunch while we waited for the temporary plate. She invited us to enjoy our meal in the indoor showroom, which we did. Thanks to the team at Couch's RV Nation, our camper purchase experience was a very enjoyable one. Sincere thanks to Ray, Kendra and Bob for your kind attention and your help in making our camper purchase a reality. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Couch's RV Nation to anyone looking for great RV prices and excellent customer service. Laurier and Lynne Lalande Sudbury, Ontario, Canada
