25 Years of RV Dreams Fulfilled and Counting
It all started as one man’s dream…a vision on how an RV dealership in Florida should be run…how people should be treated, and where fair value and exceptional customer service is the foundation on which Independence RV is built.
In early 1985, on a small one-acre leased facility on East Colonial Drive in Orlando, Florida, Ronnie Jordan started bringing his vision to life as Independence RV Sales and Service, Inc. It was a humble beginning to be sure, with just six employees and an inventory of ten recreational vehicles. The Parts Department was originally operated out of a free-standing storage shed. The Service Department consisted of an old lean-to off the back of the building. RV sales grew and so did the reputation of Independence RV. There was an immediate need for expanded facilities to house the RV parts inventory and accessories, and the RV Service Department needed a better facility with improved service capability to handle recreational vehicle service requests for coaches such as the Dutch Star.
Independence RV is a Newmar Authorized Factory Service Center where Newmar owners can bring their recreational vehicles for service with the confidence the vehicle will be repaired to specifications meeting or exceeding the factory's recommendation.
In 1989, Independence RV moved to its present location on West Colonial Drive in Winter Garden, Florida. The five-acre facility accommodated the need for more towable RV and motor home parts and accessories. The inventory dramatically increased with pop-up trailers, travel trailers, fifth-wheels, and Class A motorhomes. The current distribution agreement is in place with Newmar Corporation giving Independence RV an impressive stable of new luxury motorhomes like the Newmar Mountain Aire, Newmar Dutch Star, Newmar Ventana and gas coaches like the Newmar Bay Star and Newmar Canyon Star.
The first time RVer and full time RV marketplace continues to demand more expanded capabilities from Independence RV. As a result, Central Florida’s largest luxury motorhome dealer is actively pursuing the development of a state-of-the-art RV dealership. Planning has begun on this new 22-acre site located approximately five miles west of the current Independence RV site. Major expansion of the Sales, Parts and Service Departments is planned.
