This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
Camping is enjoyed by many people. Except for the mosquitoes, and when it rains, and when tents fall down in the middle of the night. But the people in RVs have it all figured out. They get the wonder of the outdoors during the day, and then stretch out in a queen-sized bed at night. What's more, they take a hot shower in the morning. Now that's my kind of camping!
But purchasing an RV is more than that according to Craig Jensen, president of Blaine Jensen & Sons RV in Kaysville. He says it's an opportunity to explore and discover the beautiful country around us -- a conscious decision to spend more time with one's family.
Blaine Jensen specializes in providing the perfect family RV. With the largest dealership of recreation vehicles in the Intermountain West, Blaine Jensen keeps in stock more than 300 RVs parked in a 16-acre lot. And if customers can't find what they're looking for, they can visit the company's Web site to design and order their own custom RV.
I visited with Craig Jensen to learn more about his family's successful business. He credited success to its exceptional service, wide selection and low prices. Blaine Jensen RV is a full-service dealership, offering service, repair, parts and accessories.
The Jensens have been in the RV business for more than a quarter century. Craig's father, Blaine Jensen, started the business as a used car dealership. He began stocking truck slide-ins and traveler trailers after customers began requesting them. Before long that's all he was selling. Besides Craig, Blaine's sons Scott, Robert and Steven, all work for the company, as does his daughter Becky Couser and son-in-law John Parker.
The wonderful thing about owning an RV, says Craig, is that it allows for nearly every kind of vacation imaginable. In the mountains or on the coast, as long as you can drive there with an RV, it's a vacation waiting to happen.
