We have some of the highest employee retention numbers in the industry and this benefits you. The staff you meet will be here with a smile whenever you need us, long after the sale.
Service after the Sale
Many Rv and Marine dealers only focus on selling. Bretz RV realizes the care we give after the sale is just as important. Our Service Department has an ever expanding shop and parts inventory to quickly and professionally help you with your needs.

Selection matters when your making a decision for your family's enjoyment. With over 1,000 RV's and 150 boats to choose from, we have the perfect vacation for everyone. We also are able to provide custom orders when necessary. This large inventory gives us volume discounts with the manufacturers allowing us to earn your business when other dealers can not. Simply it means even more savings for you. We enjoy selling all over the country and changing how shoppers buy RV's and boats.
Our goal is to earn your business for life. We use our large volume buying power to provide prices that will surely impress, not just for sales, but also for parts and needed service work.

At Bretz RV & Marine, our business is not only a multi-generational family business, it's also a place where deep friendships have been forged and where customers became family. Our rich history is built on a strong foundation of perseverance, a keen eye for spotting opportunity, and an enduring love of our communities.
Frank Bretz has a rich history in the automotive industry. He started out in automotive parts and worked there for several years. His wife Vi's parents owned a service station and it wasn't long before they started to hint towards retirement. Frank and Vi agreed to take over.
After some years, a customer came along that would change the trajectory of the business forever. The question was simple: why didn't they do travel trailers? For Frank and Vi, that question became the foundation for a flourishing business.
In 1967, they began hiring six trailers they had bought from another dealership. Before long, Frank realized that he could save on costs by approaching the manufacturers directly. The manufacturer he approached agreed, and by 1969, the business was selling travel trailers too.
It wasn't long after they started selling trailers that the traffic route changed and business at the service station took a dip. They decided to move premises to a larger plot with a better flow of traffic. This wouldn't be the business's final move.
Frank's sons became involved in the business. One of his sons spotted the perfect plot of land; the only problem was that it belonged to another business. An RV dealer, to be exact. Frank's son made the owner an offer which surprisingly, he accepted. This was the beginning of something great for the Bretz clan.
While the grandkids are now starting to show interest in the business and taking over from their fathers who are gearing up for retirement, Frank has started to notice a recurring trend in the sales component of the business. It's become about much more than just selling a product to a client. It's about watching families buy something that will bring joy to their lives.
Family is at the heart of every sale we make. While there are plenty of things you buy for your family that you might consider “boring but important,” boats and RVs are there purely for your enjoyment. At Bretz RV & Marine, it's about equipping your family with high-quality items that'll allow you to have the maximum amount of fun while putting the stresses and concerns of everyday life behind you. And should anything ever go wrong with your boat or RV, our team will be on-hand to get you moving again and provide any additional support you might need.
