Stan was an amazing salesman and Eric in parts and service was attentive and finished ahead of schedule.
I love the Grand Design RV that I got from Dixie RV and the service for the past 2 years has been great.
Myra, my service writer was kind enough to adjust the schedule to have the annual inspection done on my Winnebago Tour when I had an unexpected change in my personal schedule. Arriving 4 hours late for the appointment she was able to get the service tech to jump on my motorhome and as promised the entire inspection was done in an hour which allowed me the time I needed to pick up a customer at the airport as promised.
Thanks for the great service and a job well done.

I contacted Dixie RV almost a month ago about trading our Winnebago Forza in for a Tiffin Phaeton. From the time I made my first contact to delivery our experience with Dixie RV has been top notch. We both were amazed about how easy it was to do business with you. Your sales, service, finance, greeters, and everyone we made contact with were top notch. We felt as though we were your only customer during our brief stay last week and that says a lot about the people you hire and their leadership team. The only thing that I regret is that Dixie RV is not closer to where we live in Sherman, Illinois so that we could bring our Phaeton in for service and really get to know you well.

You carry the top brands and your inventory is good. Your staff is professional and polite, and the grounds and store are very clean and professionally kept. Your financial department works very hard and returns calls. I just purchased a 2017 Tiffin Pheaton 44oh, and Aaron the salesman was great to deal with. Brian in finance was great also. He told me he would make this deal happen and he did.
I was treated with respect and the technical staff was great on their walk around of the coaches. Chad was great with returning calls, and Steven was also great. He showed me how everything works on the coach and answered all my questions. I'd like to thank Aaron, Brian Bowles, Chad, and Steven for all their help.
Thanks for helping me make my dream come true.
Doug from Kansas
Just arrived in Mary Esther last week and my electric steps broke on me. Had to do some research on Youtube for the actual part I needed as the sticker was missing. Needless to say it was more difficult than I thought.
I called and talked with George who did a great job being patient and digging into what I needed. He called me back when he said he would, dug deep and found the part which I just picked up this afternoon! Well worth the drive and the effort and just wanted to say that George was awesome. I told one of your First Impressions folks to tell his manager but thought I’d spend a minute in sending you a note.

We wanted to thank the staff of Dixie RV for helping us find our perfect motorhome--the Tiffin Allegro 36UA. The entire staff, especially our salesperson, Bobby Reach, and finance people, Tim and Jeff, and Mike (our technician) for the professional service they provided in helping us make our decision. We would certainly recommend your dealership to anyone and plan on returning for service and, possibly in the future, a trade up. Bobby was extremely knowledgeable and patient as we went through the process. It's normal to be a little nervous when making a large purchase, but Bobby gave us some excellent tips and a lot of information.
We could not be happier with our new Tiffin and look forward to many great memories in it with our grandchild. The staff was operating under highly stressful conditions but we never felt slighted; everyone went above and beyond to assist us. We wish you a speedy recovery from the flood and a growing business. Thanks again!
Oh...if you have customers who want references, we'll be glad to talk to them. Just a thank you for what you did.
My name is Gene Carter. I live in Tifton Georgia.
Maybe I should direct this letter to the sales manager or someone under you, but I felt I needed to talk to you.
My wife and I are close to retirement and we are trying to purchase a nice coach. The one we want is a 2016 Tiffin 45op. I visited Dixie RV in Hammond La while on vacation to see my daughter who lives in New Orleans a few months back. I meet with a salesman there, and his name is Aaron Green. I know you are a busy man so I'll try and be brief as I can.
Mr. Green has be working with me for about 2 months now trying to get me what I want and what I can afford. He has worked very very hard trying to please me in ever way and close the deal on what I want and he's been very professional and is very educated on these coaches. He has always been available and has returned all my calls and texts and has answers any and all questions I have had from payments to how much it would take to maintain a coach of this caliber.
He has worked hard on two coaches; first a 2016 tiffin 45 OP, and then a 2016 Pheaton 44 OH. I was trading in a 2013 truck with a 2014 fifth wheel. He offered me top dollar on them and gave me a good deal on the coaches. My budget was a little off for these coaches so we've decided to wait and save up a little more money so I can get the Tiffin 45 OP maybe 12 to 24 months from now.
Because of Aaron Green I will be buying one from him when I buy. It's not his fault I didn't purchase one this time around, it was my budget. I just wanted to bring to your attention that he is a great salesman and your Rv lot there is top of the line, very clean and lots of coaches to choose from, great inventory.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and although I didn't buy this time, I promise I will be back to see him and I'll spread the word on what a great place you have there. I hope he gets some kind of recognition for his hard work. Again, it wasn't his fault. He has made me a life long customer. I will be glade to drive 7 hours to deal with him--he's that good.
Thanks again for you time.

We would like to personally thank you for your assistance in solving the issue with our recent camper purchase from Dixie RV in DeFuniak. It is so refreshing to see a business care about their customers and work quickly to resolve the issues. We look forward to many years enjoying our camper and a relationship with Dixie RV.
Hi, I just want to let you know about the excellent customer service we received last week at the Dixie RV in Hammond. We had a stress crack on the side of the RV. We tried to have it fixed at the dealer we purchased from, but for some reason they were not able to fix it. We travel full-time and were passing through Louisiana and decided to try to get it fixed at Dixie. I could not be happier with the service we received!
Before bringing it in, we had a few other issues come up that needed to be fixed and also decided to have the annual maintenance/inspection service completed at the same time. Erin Bernard was wonderful to work with. She kept in contact with me the whole time while it was being serviced and kept me updated on the status. We stayed in a hotel during the week it was in the shop so we were anxious for it to be ready so we could get back on the road. Once it was ready on Friday it was a little too late to travel so Erin said we could stay in one of the sites on your property which we gladly did. It was really nice to be able to stay there for the night rather than find someplace else to stay.
Anyway, everything was completed to perfection on the RV while it was there, and we were happy to be back on the road. You restored our faith in RV service centers as we have not had good experiences receiving service until now. Next time we need anything done we will hopefully be close enough to bring it to you. And next time we're in the market for a new RV you can be sure we'll come to you. You have just made a customer for life. Thank you to Dixie and Erin and everyone else that helped to get our RV fixed and back on the road last week!
My wife and I spent over 3 months searching and researching the perfect RV for us. Part of that equation was investigating the dealership. This was our first time purchasing an RV so we were cautious. We are big on customer service and honest feedback. We visited several RV dealerships in the area and we left our contact information with all of them. We had several other dealership criteria that I won't go into now...but our ranking is as follows: 1 - Dixie RV; 2 - Berryland; 3 - It really doesn't matter...the rest were all the same. We were pleased with every facet of the purchasing endeavor with Dixie to informing us about the RVs, negotiating a fair price, working the paper work, allowing us to spend a night on lot, the hitch guy made sure we knew how to hook up the hitch and even came back to ensure we were sure! Everything so far has been outstanding! We bought our first RV from Dixie RV in Hammond, great experience! I highly recommend them! Stan Bacon and Alex (sorry don't remember last name), Chad Picone (finance) were all great to us!!!
Kenneth and Kimberly Gore
I'm sending this email to tell you about the wonderful experience we had at Dixie RV in Defuniak Springs over this past weekend. We purchased a 2016 Big Country 3900FLP.
Your employee Heather Senn was a dream to work with. She made our experience so painless. I believe she was just as excited as we were when the loan was approved. It's a breath of fresh air to have a salesperson who really cares about how our experience is and not just the bottom line. We had been researching this unit for months and she made sure that we got what we wanted. I do consider her as part of our extended family now. Heather has a wonderful personality and she is an amazing asset to your company. I cannot speak more highly of Heather.
Also, I'd like to acknowledge the delivery man Chirs. (I'm not sure of his last name.) He had his work cut out for him getting this big 5th wheel into a very tight spot. He was never impatient with us and got the job completed beautifully. He took the extra time to go over the auto level with us again and made sure everything was perfect before he left. Chris is a wonderful asset to your company as well.
I am part of many RV lifestyle facebook groups and I have been singing praises for Dixie RV, Heather, and Chris. With employees like this we look forward to doing more business with your company in the future.
Terry & Traci Billingsley
We stopped at the Hammond location at 9:00 am on a Saturday morning with an issue with a awning on our coach. It wouldn't close all the way. We had no appointment; however, Larry Hill said no problem and pulled our coach in the shop. Mike Mayeaux adjusted the awning and had us on our way in minutes. By far these two guys were the best I have ever dealt with. This dealership didn't ask where I bought my coach like all others do, they knew we had a problem and took care of it. Outstanding service department!
James and Marillyn Garrett
We bought a 2003 Rialta from Dixie RV in FL. Levi was consistently available to answer questions and provide guidance to us in the purchasing process. We flew to FL and Levi picked us up at the airport-great extra effort on his part. Cody gave us a thorough orientation to the Rialta (this is our first RV). We felt confident driving away that we knew the systems and operations. We took a 5 day road trip up the East Coast to get home--camping the whole way. The Rialta performed flawlessly. The vehicle was exactly as Levi described it. Our experience with Dixie RV was positive. We would recommend them and buy from them again.
Iver and Mary Duedall
On November 21 2015, we purchased a 2016 Vegas (by Thor), 25.2 Class A motor home from Dixie RV DeFuniak Springs, FL. As soon as we stepped into the unit we loved it...We have been RVers for many years; the Vegas 25.2 with all its options and quality workmanship was exactly what we had been looking for; Ms Heather Senn was the sales person who showed us the unit; she was very professional in her approach to us...not pushy but pointing out all the features. She was with us from beginning to end and provided follow up excellent answers to questions we had.
We wish to tell you of our sincere appreciation for a job well done by Heather Senn and also by Stephanie Larabee (business office), and by the store receptionist and by Jason who gave us the final walk through demonstrating all the systems in the Vegas RV.
We have friends in Niceville and we will surely stop by your store in DeFuniak Springs in the future to say hello to Heather and everyone who helped us and to browse your store and lot.
Our thanks to you and Dixie RV!
I picked up my camper from the service department on Saturday, December 5th. I just wanted to report the exceptional service we received from Kaleb...He went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with everything. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Just wanted to report the great service this employee showed to us!
Jim & DJ Douglas
We just wanted to thank you for all your assistance with our recent service visit to Dixie RV. The whole process was new to us and everyone was very understanding with all our questions.
Both Larry Hill and Michael Mayeaux were extremely knowledgeable and very patient with all our questions. Everything on our list was repaired and all the work done was explained in sufficient detail so that we could understand what was done. We are extremely happy with the work done on our coach.
Angela Commander in Customer Service was also extremely helpful and pleasant. Thanks Angela.
Thanks again and we will see y’all again next year. Happy Thanksgiving.
Sherri and Gordon Wilkie
We just purchased a 2016 Thor Challenger from our local dealer, Independence RV, and embarked on our maiden voyage early this morning. Suddenly, while we were driving in the rain, our windshield wipers decided not to work. I called Thor, and they recommended your location to help us. We were so very pleased with the courteous and prompt attention we received from all of your staff. They turned an unpleasant experience into a surprisingly pleasant one. Please express our gratitude to everyone, especially Bob and Joe in the service department. All should receive a commendation or a pay raise at the very least. We will be very motivated to recommend your RV dealership to everyone we meet. Thank you to all!
Gary Cavasos, Gulf Breeze, FL
Just purchased a wonderful Grand Design Solitude 5th wheel at the RV Show in Ft Walton Beach. Our thanks to Heather and Ray from Grand Designs for making it a memorable and enjoyable experience. We are so excited about our new RVing experience. Thank you Dixie RV!
Jim & Diane Riney, Crestview, FL
Eric: It was a pleasure meeting you and members of your staff, Bob Lindsey and technician, Wilson.
As you may have heard, we had a horrible experience with warranty service at Windish RV in Longmont, Colorado -- causing us to delay travels to a family wedding and absorb over $1000 out of pocket, as well as serious customer service concerns with Grand Design, the manufacturer of our 2014 Solitude 5th Wheel. ALL of this was due to nothing other than negligence, poor communication, and the worst customer service we have ever experienced.
We are seasoned travellers who make every effort to extend the benefit of doubt, play by the rules and remain flexible. All of these basic concepts were totally destroyed by Windish service department. We were misled -- dare we say what it really was -- lied to. Whether or not it was intentional remains unclear, but had the service representative followed up on what he believed to true, he would have uncovered the problem and taken measures to correct it. This background is provided to say this.
Walking into DixieRV was like 'Coming home to the South' -- the only thing missing was sweet potato pie in the oven : ) Your entire organization reflects an atmosphere of welcoming, professional and friendly customer service.
The service for which we brought our unit in for was exemplary from start to finish. We were given a specific and exact plan for work to be completed. Information was correct. Updates were almost daily. Changes to scheduling was communicated immediately. Work was completed as stated. ALL work was completed as promised -- i.e., no excuses for even the most minor details. Bob Lindsey was this customer's advocate from start to finish. He knows his business and ensured his ducks were in a row before he communicated to us -- no slips, no errors.
When we picked up our unit, we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to meet your RV technician, Wilson. It was evident that the communcation between the Bob and Wilson was clear and concise allowing for a stellar performance by all. They went above and beyond in their inspection of our unit and communicated items that we weren't aware off -- correcting them all. They worked in concert with each other, providing the best completed service to the customer. Thank you! You and your staff are to be commended! You have been instrumental in restoring our confidence in Grand Design and customer service.
Dixie RV not only met, but exceeded all expectations. We plan to schedule our travels to have service completed by Dixie RV. And, you can be sure thaat when we're ready to trade for the Class A, Dixie RV is at the top of our list!
Full time RVers and Work Campers have a unique, deep and wide network. We talk. We share expereinces, both good and bad. Rest assured, Dixie RV is at the top of the GOOD -- and we will share our story -- around the campfire as well as social media.
Well done! Feel free to share this with your staff and/or Grand Design.
Thank you -- and blessings to you and your organization.
PS - A side note, we had requested re-packing of wheel bearings which we knew would be an out-of-pocket expense. Windish RV in CO totally MISSED this opportunity for service income -- Duh! Dixie RV had our unit in the day we brought it in and got started on the job!
Just wanted to let you both know that I just picked up my motorhome ( 2nd body repair in last 3 months) and I could'nt be more pleased. Not only was the work top notch but from my first call to Steven all the way to paying the bill was a smooth and easy ride. Between the email updates and the personal calls from Trace, I was never in the dark. Thanks a million!
Laurie and Michael Hollamon, Sandy, OR
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Tammy Gray and the Service staff at your Hammond, LA location. We are Oregonians on a cross country RV trip in our Palomino Solaire travel trailer. One of the Schwintek slide motors failed when we were in North Carolina and we had been unable to find any dealer or Camping World store that would fit us in for the warranty repair. Today, your service dept fixed the slide and had us on our way within 3 hours. Amazing service, super friendly/helpful staff and the most beautiful, state of the art facility we've ever seen. Wish you had a presence in our home state, Oregon - we'd give you all of our business!!! THANK YOU, again!
Chris and Eric Riffer
As I am sure you know, we did get our new unit. Thank you for seeing our side of the story and deciding as a business to do the right thing for your customer. In the end, we did not feel comfortable with another Avenger so we decided to spend the extra money and get a nicer unit. We love our Lacrosse and plan to take a trip soon.
We wanted to send a note to commend you and your staff, everyone we worked with at Dixie RV was courteous and professional during our entire experience. I stopped at the dealership on a couple of occasions to inquire on any new developments. Eric and Mary always took the time to speak to me and give any updates they had. Mary took interest in our circumstances immediately from the first night we were there returning the Avenger. It really could have turned into an unpleasant ordeal with your dealership, but it did not.
Again thank you for your consideration in this matter. You have a dealership in Defuniak Springs that you can be proud of. I believe we have become lifelong customers.
Russell R. Hilligoss
Just wanted to let you know that I have been very pleased with your staff and service department in Defuniak Springs Florida since purchasing my travel trailer from you. The sales staff and especially your service staff have gone out of their way to make sure that all my concerns and warranty work would be done correctly and in a timely manner. You should be very proud of them.
So often the ones that do their job get any credit, so I wanted to take the time to make sure they get the recognition they deserve.
Missy Myers, Gastonia, NC
I just wanted to bring to your attention what a pleasant salesperson Ben is and has been to us as we made our very first camper/RV investment ever. He has been readily available for my many calls and questions and answered each call with "Hello Missy." You never hear of that anymore. What a wonderful trait to possess. This sets Ben apart from so many.
Although we live in SC, it was meant to be for my husband to stop in LA at your dealership to make this purchase. We have received the utmost hospitality and kindness from Ben. He is most definitely an asset to your company and sales force. Being a business owner, I understand that there is a lot of negative feedback and not enough positive. It's easier to rant than rave. Therefore, I make it a policy of mine to show the appreciation for such.
We will definitely keep Ben in mind when we decide to trade or sell. We will also refer our friends to your dealership and Ben, when they are in the market. I can't say enough how easy he made this investment process for us. And I say Investment, not purchase, as it is definitely an investment for our family!
William Potts, Kentwood, LA
Roland Marange did a super job. He had a great personality and he made our buying experience a fun one. He listened to what we were looking for and then he showed us the campers that would meet our needs. Roland never tried to pressure us into buying, but instead he made us feel so relaxed.
Larry & Kathi Ridge, Crestview, FL
We just wanted to take a moment to express how pleased we were with the service we received from Stan Harris in your DeFuniak Springs location. This is the 2nd unit we purchased through Stan. He is honest, listens to what we are looking for and always walks us through the entire purchase process. Stephanie in finance did an amazing job and was thorough. As always, the girls at the front are welcoming and helpful.
Please let Stan know how much we are enjoying our motorhome. He is a great guy as well as a great salesman.
Ernest Dalle Molle, Navarre, FL
Our technician, Cody, was good. Knowledgeable and took time with us. In some instances because it was not our first RV we were able to show & get feedback on RV. Our salesperson Jo Steele was good. Though he appeared to be mainly a trailer salesperson, he was not afraid to ask others to get answers to our questions. All in all a good experience by far. The Finance and Insurance manager was thorough – even though later we would disagree on what was said of price of extended service plan. All around a good experience – I would recommend fellow RVers to buy from Dixie.
Mac & Joyce
We came there with an outline of our "DREAM UNIT" not expecting to purchase at all because our requirements were quite stringent. From the first minute we walked in to your store we were treated with respect, sincerity and professionalism from every member of the Team.
We were introduced to Levi, who accepted our challenge and very quickly identified a unit that met our criteria (albeit - at the upper range). He explained the unit was just accepted as a trade and hasn't been reviewed or gone over by Maintenance. He assured us DIXIE RV would not present a unit for sale if it was not of high quality. So, we said "What the heck, let's look at it." Long story short, the unit was in excellent condition, the floor plan was ideal and we decided we wanted to take a test ride. After the test drive and a bit of "back & forth" on the price, Dixie RV gave us an offer we could not turn down. The PRICE WAS RIGHT & the UNIT WAS OUR DREAM!
As with any major purchase, this one had a few glitches. Have no fears, Dixie RV hit home runs at every at bat. (remember all this was prior to any inspection by your Maintenance/Service/Detail Teams).
a) during the test drive I noticed the engine felt sluggish, as if the parking brake was still on - the unit was eventually sent to an outside repair shop for diagnoses and repaired.
b) the entry door step did not work automatically - Levi had a Technician replace the step motor before the test drive.
c) it was noticed the caulking around the roof edges was suspect - fixed
d) one of the window blinds in the slide had a broken tension cord - this could not be repaired before delivery and a new one has been purchased and we agreed to have it sent to us and we would install it.
All of these issues were addressed and when the Maintenance/Service/Detail Teams had the opportunity to perform their duties, the unit was immaculate.
The day of our "Walk Thru", we were greeted at the door by name. Amazing! From the time we arrived for our appointment to the time we drove off with our unit, we waited for nothing. A Dixie RV Associate was at our side taking us to the next step in the process and asking if we needed anything at all. Again, AMAZING! AMAZING!
Please let everyone know how great a job they did getting us into our unit. Levi, Walk Thru, Mary, Finance and all the Associates behind the walls have the Professional Skills and Personal Attributes which make DIXIE RV stand well above all others!DIXIE RV TURNED OUR DREAMS INTO REALITY!!
Thank You Very Much!!
On The Road Again!!
James Henderson, Lampasas, TX
We were very pleased with our experience with Dixie RV. We really appreciated Mark Gorham's honesty and his time with us. He came by the motorhome every morning to make sure everything was being done and wanted to know what was next on our list. We also appreciated the process by which Amanda, Rainey and the Technicians came by every morning to check on how things were being completed. We have already mentioned our great experience with Dixie RV and Mark Gorham and will continue to do so.
John Horil, Jr., Folsom, LA
Everyone was just wonderful to meet and interact with all about your facility. It is representative of what one generally finds in an employee owned business. I am not aware of any part of Dixie's business model but it is clear the place is populated with happy workers that arrives at happy customers. Thanks for your help and support advancing my family into a new travel trailer.
Jim and Elaine West, Defuniak Springs, FL
We recently bought a Keystone fifth wheel from Dixie RV. I had the wonderful pleasure of landing the salesman Levi. From the minute I walked in the door I felt the customer service attitude that this store has. I was greeted by two wonderful young ladies who immediately found me Levi.
I had searched online and found a fifth wheel that I wanted to take a look at. I was a serious buyer and Levi did not know that, but he treated me as such and not just a wanna looker. From the beginning to the end my husband (and grandson) were treated very professionally and when we came to do the closing, the young man (Bryan) was a true professional.
The young man who walked us through the camper was great and gave us so much information until I thought 'Okay already, let me go.' He was very thorough and my husband was glad to have gotten him.
From the Store Manager down to the techs, this store has got it going on. Lots of changes have taken place at this store since I have been there before and this time they have gotten it right.
Enjoyed doing business with Dixie RV.
Bobby Park, Baker, FL
Our Delivery Coordinator Brian did a great job! I had worked with Martin Richardson (Service department) on my first unit bought. He is a caring and outstanding employee and cares about customers. The technician Mr. Cody Cole explained everything and made sure the brakes controller and hitch worked perfectly with our vehicle! Outsanding employee and an asset to Dixie RV. Chad Weiss sold us our first travel trailer and this one is well. Could not ask for a more professional salesman! The Finance managers, Tom and Stephanie, treated us with respect and made the experience satisfying.
If I ever need repairs or replacements, I will use Dixie RV for all of my needs during and after the warranty expires.
Thomas D. Dunn
William Everett, Osyka, MS
The staff at Dixie RV were ready to help us in every part of the process of shopping and buying our own RV. I would not hesitate to recommend Dixie RV to anyone in the market for an RV, and will certainly look to Dixie RV for my next purchase.
Louis Gerkin, Amite, LA
Mr. Hilliard is a first-class salesman and a fine person. Ms. Regina was friendly, efficient, very thorough, and a pleasure to work with. We are repeat customers and have no plans to do business elsewhere.
David Wood, Middleburg, FL
Stan Harris was great. He showed me the RVs I would be interested in and did a great job explaining the 5th wheel RV to a first time buyer. They worked hard to get the lowest rate as I was prequalified for 5% and they beat that. Very happy with Dixie RV. Great group of people all the way! I've also been working with Mary on some warranty issues and she has been great. Really good customer service from start to finish!
Scott Shackelford, Maidsonville, LA
Curtis handled and went over everything! Moving from gas to diesel and the differences were explained to us. We know Clay but he was busy. Curtis did a very nice job.
George Crossen, Fort Walton Beach, FL
Everyone we came in contact with treated us so well, even the young man who explained everything about the RV inside and out. Thank you!
Riben Marine Inc., Corpus Christi, TX
This is my second purchase at your dealership. Chad, Jeff, Brett, and Rani took great care of me. Chad and Jeff always go above and beyond. Thanks! Every time I get asked for RV Sales, I send them to you.
John Kendall, Gulf Shores, Alabama
Loved the experience, would recommend Dixie RV to anyone.
Chuck & Linda Johnson, Kingsland, Texas
We are the new owners of a Conquest 295 and thought we would comment on your staff. Our sales rep was Florida's Heather who was most persuasive and did a great job. She arranged for pickup of the unit from your LA facility as we live in Texas and were just visiting in FL. We arrived at the scheduled time and Rainey (sp?) met us and coordinated the staff support in a timely manner. Nick & Adam completed the formalities and we got the glad hand from Jake. Scott gave us a quite thorough cook's tour and answered all our questions.
Dixie RV was new to us, but your customer contact and staff training programs are obviously effective. Everyone we met was friendly, knowledgeable, and most professional.
Stephen Towers, Slidell, Louisiana
Curtis is a fantastic person to know at Dixie. He's helped with any concerns I've had since the purchase. Amazing guy. now if I can just get the service dept. to replace driver's side window. It is frosted and hard to drive in that condition.
The different people and departments I have come across have been pleasant and for the most part, the employees are people friendly and treated me very well. You have an outstanding employee named Rainy...who is just the best person I have ever delt with in my 66 years. Give her a big fat raise!!!!!
I still have to back to get my hitch installed in two weeks and hope all goes well for that ordeal. Trailer had to be delivered by Robert who did a fine job getting it home for me. Thanks to Robert. Besides that the facility is clean and state of the art compared to other facilities we have visited.
Karla & Richard Feigley
I would like to “THANK YOU” for putting Cody on my job. He went above and beyond to take care of us and to get our camper ready for pick-up on Saturday. We appreciated the great service from Cody.
Farrell Collins, Golden Meadow, Louisiana
We are so very happy with you all! You all really came through for us! Thank you!
Elbert Wimberly, Leesville, Louisiana
Everyone we had the opportunity to work with were ready to assist in any way to make the experience enjoyable.
Daniel Miller Sr. Saucier, Mississippi
Receptionists, sales personnel, PDI technician and delivery coordinator helped make our experience with Dixie RV delightful (instead of an ordeal). Very satisfied and happy customer.
Lloyd Dobson, Defuniak Springs, Florida
We plan to keep you as our long term dealer. Thank you, we love the RV.
Charles Lacost III, Denham Springs, Louisiana
Customer service from everyone was amazing. We did not feel like a number. We felt special, like they cared about our needs. We will refer friends to Dixie RV or anyone that may be considering buying an RV. The golf carts were nice to transport us around the large parking lot.
Terry Armond Jr., Slidell, Louisiana
We have been recommending to all friends and family to come to Dixie RV! Thanks for everything! Our experience with ya'll has been very good! Thanks again!
Douglas Daunis, Prairieville, Louisiana
Everyone was on their toes. Answered any and all questions. Made us feel like we were important and our being happy with our experience was important to them.

Dear Dixie RV;
On Aug. 27th,2014, my wife and I stopped at Dixie RV in Florida because we were having brake problems on our camper. It was just after noon and Bob Lindsey said when the men returned from lunch they would look at it. The problem turned out to be quite serious with shorted out wires, plug, and brake controller. The work was completed in a very timely manner by Chris G. and Doug R. and VERY MUCH to our satisfaction. Our dogs ( Ruby and Pearl) were also happy that you left them wait inside with us and for the drink of water.
I had my dealer back home look at my brakes 3 times in two years because they never seemed to work as good as I thought they should have. You told me that you would not let me leave until the brakes worked REALLY good and you were not kidding, for the rest of the journey home the trailer had the BEST brakes ever since I bought the trailer in 2007!!. My only regret is that we don't live closer, so that Dixie RV could do any and all the work we would ever need on any of our trailers. We want to extend our most heartfelt thanks to everyone at Dixie RV and God Bless.
Dr. John Richard Hoskins, Lt. Col (Ret)
I want to pass on a great big thank you and appreciation to Bob Lindsey, Service Manager, at DIXIE RV, Florida. Wow! This man cares and he lives servant-leadership in his customer service. Every contact I have had with him has been superb, professional, and I leave happy. We purchased a pull trailer last spring and there was a significant problem with the stabilizer put on the trailer.
I realized this from the beginning but I could not get anyone to 'see' what I was seeing. We took a 6000 mile trip across America and the stabilizer soon became a very huge safety issue. Bob realized the problem right away, ensured the problem was fixed, apologized over and over, and ensured that my experience which could have been tragic became great. You need men like him! He probably made you even more money because when it comes time to trade, Dixie RV will be my place of destination. I can trust you because Bob stands by your reputation.
Furthermore, Bob placed your best mechanic on my trailer. He was fantastic...told me what was wrong (the whole hitch had been placed on incorrectly), walked me through how it should properly work, and apologized that we had to experience such poor service previously. Great men, great time. God bless.
Johnny Miller, Needville, TX:
I would recommend Dixie RV to friends. All of the issues and concerns we had were resolved. I appreciate the attention they gave to us to make things go smoothly.
Emmett L. Bounds, Purvis, MS:
The Delivery Coordinator was very professional, and the Technician did a great job and took the time to answer all of my questions. Our salesperson, Clay, was exceptional and went above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased with our new motorhome. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a motorhome. The Finance and Insurance manager provided very prompt service and was great to work with. The overall experience has been great and I would not hesitate to recommend Dixie RV to family and friends.
Stephen, my name is Byron Fontenot. I have been using Dixie RV for service work for the last nine years. For the last six years on a 2008 Newmar 39 foot Country Star that I bought from your company, and before that on a 38 foot Monaco Windsor.
I have been dealing almost exclusively with Jonathan Beasley. Your other service people, CJ, and Trace have been very helpful when I dealt with them. But I must tell you that Jonathan goes the extra mile trying to help his customers.
A case in point, I had a trip planned for Destin on June 11. Three weeks before the trip I had a slide out motor fail. I brought it in for parts order, then back the next week for placement but had to order more parts, then back the next week for complete repairs in time for the trip. Jonathan stayed on top of this for three weeks and got the work finished.
I am a retired dentist. I appreciate that businesses hear a lot of complaints and a few compliments every now and then. I compliment your service department for their work, but especially Jonathan. He is an asset to your business, and is one reason that I will continue to use Dixie RV.
All of the employees we encountered during our time at Dixie RV were very helpful and pleasant. Special thanks to the female salesperson who entertained our grandchildren during our walk-through!
Janice & Robert & Kayleigh & Ty Odor:
To who it may concern,
My name is Janice Odor. My family and I purchased an RV pull trailer. Our experience with Dixie RV and especially with our salesman Greg Leonard was great. He was absolutely a great person to work with. He got our needs met, was very pleasant and personable, and I would recommend any friend or family to come to Greg (Dixie RV) if looking for a camper!
I wanted to send you a note to thank you for your cooperation during our recent purchase of a 2015 Spartan RV. You were reasonable with the insurance company and the deal was comfortable for everyone. In addition, our sales advisor Heather Senn was helpful along the way from our first meeting and several visits to make our decision sound and informed. She insisted on giving us her cell number "just in case." Well, we needed it and she responded to our situation. The Dixie phone bank was down due to a severe weather issue, and it was 82 in our new RV.
We used the Heather "Hot Line" and she handled the problem by contacting the service department and explained that this unit was only several days old and was our home. We received a call within minutes and a tech was scheduled to come the next day and make the problems go away. She went the extra step and followed up on the repair and was always concerned that Dixie was providing all that they promised during the purchase process. You should be proud that all of your staff meetings regarding customer service are being applied and appreciated.
Captain Louis and Sharon Gerkin:
My husband, Louis, and I would like to compliment Ms. Karla Lacara for the outstanding job she does. She just constantly goes over and above what we have come to expect from other RV service personnel and she is always so pleasant to be around, with a quick laugh and such a genial attitude!
We travel frequently and have had many, many dealings with getting service work done all over the United States and she is by far the very best.
Ms. Karla will get the unit in to be worked on as fast as she can and keeps us updated every step of the way. This is so helpful to us and no doubt every customer since it’s impossible to make travel plans if you don’t know when you’ll get your RV back.
If she or her technician notice an unrelated issue from what we brought the unit in for she will contact us to let us know so we can decide what to do. From something as simple as a loose door latch to a compartment light that doesn’t work to a major battery issue they always do a thorough check for us to make sure everything is in tip top shape before returning it. Most places will only fix what you bring it in for and they could be stepping over a frayed, bare, sparking shore cable and wouldn’t mention it.
My husband works overseas so I don’t have a way to pick up the RV after the service work is completed (generally we take it in for service while he’s home) and Ms. Karla will bring the unit back to me. It always arrives in spotless condition, inside and out, with the exterior freshly washed and the inside thoroughly cleaned. And, with the size of our unit, I know that is no small thing!
After delivery Ms Karla consistently follows up with an email to make sure we’ve tried all of the systems and items we had it in for repair for and are satisfied that everything is working.
This unique attention to detail is what makes Ms. Karla so exceptional at her job and what makes us appreciate her so very much.
John and Ginny Aucoin:
I am late in sending this e-mail but as they say you address problems faster than compliments. This is definitely a compliment! We own a Vantage RV made by KeyStone. We live in Abbeville so it was more convenient for us to go to Southern RV in Lafayette to have some warranty work done. This turned into a horror movie and my husband researched to see where we could find a dealer to repair our RV. This is when he talked to Karla (as he calls her Karla with a K) with Dixie. Her answer was "Bring your RV to me, we will fix it." Well after many weeks, which was not Dixie's fault but a problem with the insurance company, we got our RV back. We are so happy with the excellent service and workmanship. Karla has helped us with explaining to the insurance company and getting the warranty work done. We were impressed with your whole operation, but boy are you fortunate to have Karla with a K.
Alberta Horner and Wayne Harrel, Milton, FL:
Our Big Sky Montana is 13 years old. When we decide to trade, we assure you it will be with Dixie RV. Why? Most of all their demonstration of honesty with their customers. Thank you!
Hilda and Clyde France, Hammond, LA:
Our salesman, Roland Draughan, treated us like family and we enjoyed doing business with him. We had a lot of laughs and we had fun. Too bad all dealerships aren't like you guys. We are looking forward to having fun with our RV. Thank you.
Christi Herbert, Church Point, LA:
The camper was ready later than expected and had a few issues, but I noticed that everyone over there pulled together and worked as a team to get everything right, even on a Friday afternoon after 5, great job to all who took part, thanks! AJ is a top notch salesman, he made our shopping experience really enjoyable. He is very knowledgable and upfront, Dixie RV ought to be very proud to have an employee who handles his job with such professionalism and pride. He is a great asset to Dixie and should be recognized. Forgive me, I can't remember her name, but she was awesome, she explained everything in detail and made it very easy to decide what we wanted. She is very professional and does a wonderful job of making people feel at home. Great job!
Glenn O., Kinder, LA - 01/10/2014:
We would like to commend Dixie RV of Hammond, LA. We recently purchased an RV and it developed major structural problems. Dixie went to bat on our behalf and got us a new RV. It is great to purchase a product from a dealership that is there before and after the sale. If only all dealers would treat people with honestly and respect as Dixie has treated us. We recommend Dixie RV to the fullest.
Jackie B., Wisconsin Rapids, WI:
We arrived at Dixie RV around 1 pm on a Thursday afternoon for service. Within half an hour our RV was taken in and work was started to diagnosis our problem with a non-working keyless door and a wet carpet. As the problems weren't fixed at closing time, we were able to plug into a power source and spend the evening right in their parking lot. By noon on Friday, our keyless door was operating and the water problem taken care of. We were very pleased with the service we received and would recommend Dixie RV to fellow RV'ers. C.J. at the service counter along with Randy Thomas who actually worked on our RV kept us informed as to their progress and we felt they were very professional and qualified to perform the service we needed.
John and Jennifer Gautney, Holt, FL:
Jason was very knowledgable about our unit and answered all questions in a way that used plain English and was easy to understand. Kevin listened to our requests and did not push us at all into a unit that we didn't want. He was able to hear our wants and showed us units that met or exceeded our expectations. He's very personable! Tom was great! He explained all our financial options in plain language that was easy to understand. We'll recommend Dixie RV to our friends as we show off our unit on various camping trips!!
Everett William Hurlburt, San Antonio, FL:
Thom and Kevin were super with all interactions. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. I forget the young man's name(it may have been Doug) who read the manual twice on how to set up and take down our trail manor. What dedication! Extremely patient with a lady who was not sure what she wanted, Kevin is the person anyone would want for a salesman. He offered suggestions and answered all questions. We arrived early for our first appointment and he interrupted his plan for the day (I am sure) right away to meet us, He also allowed us to take all the time we needed to be sure we made the right choice for us. Thom did an outstanding job of making the paperwork quick and easy. We stated only one time that we had made a 400 mile trip to see the trail manor and had the return trip home to make the day of our first visit. We are very pleased with Thom, his knowledge and customer skills are excellent. We have purchased a number of RVs over the thirty plus years we have been RVing and will recommend your company to any of our friends who look for an RV dealer. All your personnel earned "outstanding."
Harold Campbell, Morgan City, LA:
Jeff is a fine gentleman who is very considerate for the customers' needs and their ability to afford the RV. he was very helpful and patient with me and my wife and was the most well informed salesperson I have ever dealt with. we are extremely pleased with the Allegro 36LA. It was a pleasure dealing with Dixie RV mostly because of JEFF. Thanks!
Walter Judson Eldredge, Baton Rouge, LA:
Scott gave a lot of useful tips in addition to basic instruction. I run out of words to compliment Shane. He recommended trailers that met our interests; did a thorough job of showing them with a lot of good advice. He followed through with getting the equalizer installed and helped us with the purchase of accessories. He came in on his off day, obviously while he was sick, to make sure our pickup went smoothly, We came back after five days with a few minor time to fix. He made himself available immediately and stayed with us until everything was lined up. He left us with the feeling that if we need any thing even years from now, he'll be happy to help us. This process was almost as complex as buying a house, but it went smoothly. We were there on two days and so worked with Regina and then Chris, but they coordinated seamlessly. It would be hard to beat this experience. It was nice that after we decided on our purchase, several of the staff came by Shane's office to welcome us to the "Dixie Family."
Gary and Cindy Hornosky, Bay Saint Louis, MS:
Salesmanship was great, support also outstanding. Wonderful experience! Knowledge of our motorhome was expert and honest, no bullshit. Great experience! He did his job(salesman) with the enthusiasm of a true RV'er, loved working him. Answered many questions I didn't know I needed to ask, but very glad "We " did. Great operation, keep up the Good Work!
William M. Cosgrove, Arnoldsville, GA:
Tom's approach and honesty sold us on Dixie RV. Regina was patient and worked out a good plan for the tranfer of ownership.
Wallace Reed Brown, Laurel Hill, FL:
Got lots of helpful hints and service area was helpful on item needed. Did not try to over sell and knew information even on new models.
Wendall O. Holmes, Franklinton, LA:
We really appreciate everything. We are so excited to have our new camper and we can't wait to go camping. Thanks to everyone!!
Keith was the Technician who gave us our walk-through. He was very knowlegable about the unit, thorough & systematic in his walk-through! He emphasized the things to do & NOT to DO! Told us about procedures to follow & things that would help protect our investment. He was also very patient with our 1st time owners questions! As a previous salesman in the automotive aftermarket I have known & worked with a lot of Technicians. Many were very knowledgable about the work they did. Few were both knowledgable & able to interact well with the customer. Keith is one of those few!
When we entered Dixie RV on 05-02-2013 we had no intention to buy a motorhome that day! Clay Kruse was our Salesperson. I have dealt with very few Salespersons who were as outstanding & professional as Clay! He was very knowledgeable on his products. Very patient with our many question. He was very thorough in explaining benefits of the Allegro. Did not try to hide drawbacks like gas mileage. We at no time felt like he was pressuring us to buy; in fact I don't think he ever asked us to buy. As an ex-salesperson; Clay treated us as I tried to treat my customers! We really liked that and told him so! We placed a deposit on our unit that afternoon.
Regina Wadsworth was our Finance & Insurance Manager. Regina went far & beyond the "Call of Duty"! She gave us the information we needed contact & start the loan application with the Finance & Insurance company that we thought we wanted to use. She also contact some F & I companies that she had used in the past. Turns out that the companies she contacted gave us better deals than the one we have used for many years. Regina was again an outstanding & professional Business Manager!
We now know why Dixie RV is one of the largest Allegro Dealers in the Nation! We have an Allegro Dealer within 15 minutes of our home. We did not buy from them, because of a lack of inventory & a Sales Manager that pre-judged our pocket book. We bought from Dixie although we live over 300 miles from your store. Enough said! We will recommend Dixie RV to anyone interested in an RV! We will definitely recommend Dixie RV.
Derrel Perron, Mamou, LA:
We are very particular, guess some would say demanding. Overall, we drove away satisfied. We were treated kindly and fairly. Thanks Bartow, Shane,Gary, and Pete! Our salesperson was Shane Roberts, and I wish to commend his performance. He answered all our numerous questions without making us feel like the country bumpkins we are. He went well out of his way to be sure we were satisfied. Shane is a real asset to your company.
Michael Townsley, Golden Meadow, LA:
Chad made sure we were able to get the camper we wanted. My credit isn't the greatest, he worked very hard to get us approved. It took longer than usual to get approved even with a substantial down payment, but it was well worth the wait. I am completely satisfied everyone at Dixie RV treated my wife and myself with great hospitality.
Cortney Bourgeois, Waveland, MS:
We are coming to pick up our brand new camper on Saturday! We are so excited! Your salesmen, receptionist, EVERYONE we spoke to during our visit to your dealership was extremely polite and helpful! We were treated with respect from the start! Greg was a huge help and so funny and personable! Chip was a big help also! We had a great experience with you guys and we know where to come for most (if not all) of our camping needs! Thank you so much! It was truly great doing business there!
Travis O'Rourke, Leesville, LA:
Jeff was excellent, his no pressure sales was the perfect match for us. Had we gotten any pressure we'd have went elsewhere to purchase the RV. His knowledge base having traveled in various RV's with his own kids for the last 20 (almost) years was a perfect match for us also, with us having 2 children already and planning to expand. He took his time showing us the various RV's and was in no hurry. He then worked with us to get an RV that perfectly matched our requests. He continued to help us work out all the bugs on the delivery day. I will highly recommend Jeff to any one I speak to in the market to purchase an RV.
Our sales experience was great and we are very pleased with the RV we purchased. Everyone was eager to help us at every turn and I feel that we made the right choice with Dixie RV.
Ryan and Tonya Boudreaux:
Just wanted to say Thank You Tom for everything you have done for us! We will enjoy our camper for a long time. And we really appreciate the kindness, and business of you and your staff! Everyone treated us with kindness and respect and that did mean a lot to us. Everyone was also very helpful if we need something. Please let the owner know that Ryan and Tonya Boudreaux says that Dixie RV is the Best, Clean, and Respectful place to buy a camper!!!
P.S. Everyone Deserves a Raise!!!
You did a great job Jay! Ryan and I will enjoy our camper for a long time. Will send you pictures after our first trip, it won't be till next month. Ryan went back to work already! But I'm packing up the camper for our 1st trip and the grandson is excited to go. Thank you for the beautiful card, it was really touching! Will be seeing you again soon! You are a great person and one of the best sales person I have ever met. Take care and I’ll pray for you and your family!
I have purchased 3 RVs from Dixie RV in DeFuniak. If I ever purchase another RV which is real probable I will try my best to purchase it from them. Why? The service manager Brian and the head mechanic Chris along with the manager who I can not remember his name at this moment (senior moment) treat me like I am family anytime I go into the store. They have given me their cell phone numbers to call them with questions etc. Just wanted to give them a little praise for a job well done.
Randy Gee, Nocona, TX:
Moe---the walk thru experience with him verses the last place was night and day!! Moe knows his coaches inside and out, good man great value to the company, give him a raise!!! He stayed with us until 7 pm that night. Thanks
Ourville Lavinghouse, Zachary, LA:
Great service. Chris was a first class guy. Showed real interest in my understanding the steps and the way around the travel trailer. Shane was superb and a true gentlemen. He represents the dealership to the highest regard. Seems as if there was a new F and I guy. But he did a wonderful job. Got through the process with no glitches. The Dixie RV sales team provided me with everything they promised. I respect the team that worked with me, from the receptionist when I walked through the door until I drove off the lot. If I ever have to return my product for a service call I would hope the service is as good. The sales team has set a standard for all others to strive for. I would recommend Dixie RV.
