I made it home safely at about 2PM. 2700 miles with stopovers in Flagstaff, Amarillo, St Louis, and State College. The RV is a dream to drive and after so many miles I feel like a pro. An unbelievable climbing machine. The creature comforts were over the top for one person. Taking the family RVing in New Hampshire tomorrow!
Dear Vince, Lori & Staff-
We can’t being to express our thanks to all of you, mechanics, customer service, etc. to make our 2008 Suncruiser a dream come true. We are so excited to begin our cross-country trip in our luxurious little home. This has been our second great buying experience with La Mesa and we would not hesitate to refer anyone looking to buy an RV.
Thank you again!
Brigitte & Jay W.
I want to let you know we made it back home safe and sound from our maiden voyage in the new Suncriuser. Had a great Caribbean Cruise as well from the Port of Charleston. We missed the turn on the way to long term parking so we decided to enjoy a Port City "excursion" prior to boarding. We ended up in Old Town on Market Street a wonderfully quaint but narrow 18th century cobblestone pathway with delivery trucks making their rounds and tourists aimlessly jaywalking throughout the city. Wow! Made it through there and back to our parking area without a scratch! It was a miracle. CoCo said it was your great driving lessons…I claimed to be a good student! Either way we have some memories that only now we can laugh at. We also want everyone at La Mesa RV to know that our experience at your dealership was wonderful from beginning to end, sales to service and everything in between. The time spent at your facility was like hanging out with old friends, even our dogs had a good time being spoiled in the cafeteria!
Your customers for life,
John and CoCo
Grateful RV’ers from Calgary, Alberta with a Tiffin 36LA that had a major electrical problem and an awning that wouldn’t stay rolled up in the wind. And Pete Vezeau got us in after a Monday panic call from Las Vegas that we needed help. Your gal on the chat line was excellent and it made for an anticipated stop in Mesa. Arriving late, we were thrilled to find a parking spot for the rig AND a plug-in. We can appreciate that this is the height of the RV season right now yet Pete got us in. Before the day was out not only were these major problems fixed by warranty (our rig is but 8 months old) but also a number of niggling problems AND when we came to pick up our baby, it had been washed and polished “to the nines” at NO CHARGE. You certainly made my wife happy, and I for sure will be a rabid fan of La Mesa RV. Thanks to Pete, technician Dave and the boys in the wash shop.
Linda and I were very impressed with the, courtesy, professionalism and patience that you and the many other La Mesa employees have shown us. The staff at La Mesa is definitely way out in front of the pack!
La Mesa RV,
I just want to say thank you to Brandon, Tom and Amanda for staying on Saturday to help us with the delivery of our RV. Rocky and I really appreciate the extra effort everyone made to make this a smooth transaction for us and our busy schedule.
We will highly recommend your Company to our friends and family. For any future RV needs we will definitely be looking to La Mesa RV. I also would like to give praise to our Sales person David Moreland.
Thank you everyone for great customer service!
It looked pretty busy around La Mesa RV when we left yesterday so we didn’t bother you to thank you properly for the amazing service and help you gave us.
We LOVE our new motorhome! It has the walk around bed and the sofa that we needed and all sorts of other improvements that we did not even know we needed!
Mac and Devin and Dave and everyone made us feel like family and also like we were the most important customer to walk through your doors! It was an amazing experience all around!
We will recommend you all to everyone who asks. Twice we have found La Mesa RV to be the best RV sales operation!
Thank you so much,
Ann and Alan D.
I wanted to let you know of my recent visit to La Mesa RV for service. Even thought I drive 125 miles (each way) I have never given a second thought because Joseph and Scott have become my friends over the years I have been coming in. To see Joseph’s children grow, and to hear Scott’s daughter’s achievements at school are part of the joy of visiting. Last year when we were in Tucson, Scott brought his children to visit us so they could see the 5 foot long iguana he had told them about being in the coach when he serviced it.
Our annual pilgrimage this year once again coincided with the Gem Show (my wife has a jewelry business), and in preparation for our Spring and Summer trips I wanted the coach checked, fluids changed, etc. Stephanie made a reservation quickly, efficiently, and to suit our schedule, and Joseph greeted me like we were long-lost friends. I cannot emphasize how important this attitude is to the annual visitor. Without feeling rushed, Joseph and I spoke for a few minutes about family, coach, needs, pick-up, and I left knowing I was in good hands.
Upon returning, the coach was ready (as promised), Scott came to greet me, brought me up-to-date on what he found (minor), his children, and how good it was to see me. Mr. Hennessy, you cannot buy this kind of goodwill and public relations. What started a few years ago as a visit of curiosity when I saw a new Essex on your lot, Karen speaking and listening to us and suggesting that our problems with the Essex we loved could be solved by bringing it to your service, bringing it in that week and meeting Joseph and Scott, and the rest is history (including a visit from the President and Founder of the company who invented the rear-view camera which no one else could fix).
For those RV owners in the area, for those traveling through, and for (like me) transplants looking for a good service team I can only say: use me and my recommendations for what they’re worth. You have a combination in which you should have great pride, and RV owners/travelers should be made aware of them.
Dear Mr. Walters,
We recently purchased a 2006 Elite Suites 39 foot fifth wheel at La Mesa RV in Tucson. I want to let you know how not only pleased we are with the purchase but, more importantly, how the entire process of the sale, from the time of our first visit to see the trailer through the delivery on the 17th of December, was handled in the most professional yet relaxed manner. Everyone involved was always very helpful and courteous, beginning with Dick Wydenes and Nancy Kish on the sales staff, Dave Adams our service advisor, and lastly the man who delivered the trailer on the morning of the 17th. We very much appreciate the generous allowance of time for inspection of the unit. In that connection I am especially thankful for Dave Adams who was always most helpful in promptly answering all of our questions about the unit and in expeditiously correcting all of the faults found during the inspection.
The whole process was a pleasant experience and we would not hesitate to recommend La Mesa RV as a great place to buy and RV.
Dear Mr. Kimbrell:
On January 29, 2010 we purchased a 2004 Safari Trek from La Mesa RV while in Quartzsite, Arizona. The Trek is our third RV purchase and it was a wonderful experience for us thanks to the staff at La Mesa RV.
Salesman Rob Brown was most helpful in answering our questions about our new rig. Bob Upton worked with us to obtain the best financial package for us.
Since we had to wait a few days for delivery we had a change to enjoy the free breakfasts and lunches provided by La Mesa RV. The food was good and the “Silver Buckle” staff was always ready with a warm and friendly greeting.
Frank in your service department got us situated on the lot, worked to get the gig ready, and kept us informed as to the progress of our rig. When it came time to move into our new rig, Taylor and Rob made sure everything was safe and to our satisfaction.
All in all your La Mesa RV staff at Quartzsite were outstanding, and made our purchasing experience very positive. They exhibited your company’s slogan “FAMILY” really means just that. As we mentioned, this was our third RV purchase, and the only one where we did not think we were in the hands of a bunch of “Snake Oil Salesmen”. We have never felt it necessary to correspond with management relative to purchasing experiences, but with such great treatment, we felt this is a must.
Again, thank you and La Mesa RV for having the foresight to put such a great team together, one that lives up to your company’s slogan.
Ed and Stephanie L.
Last month I traveled with my wife in our 2033 Winnebago Journey, more than 200 miles to Tucson for an important appointment with a physician. Upon arrival we discovered that our bathroom sink and shower fixtures had apparently frozen and were inoperable.
Your service man, Xavier Carrillo, with the support of his manager, Dave Hennessy, and their scheduler, Stephanie Vasquez, made room in their busy schedule to analyze and repair our RV. My wife was particularly happy I was able to shower that evening.
They did so in a very timely manner, repaired all the fixtures at a reasonable cost, and made sure we did not miss our important appointment.
Thank you for hiring people who have the best interests of their customers in mind when they make decisions about after-sale maintenance.
Having been in business for many years before retiring, I know how important it can be to receive customer feedback concerning one’s employees. Here is some for you from this very satisfied customer.
While camping at Wekiva Falls RV resort the past two weeks I noted that my refrigerator rooftop vent was damaged. Your salesperson Ann Luzzi was there with a couple of units (and she sold one of them). She gave me directions to your location.
Mike in the parts department got me the parts immediately, while very busy with other customers.
I returned the next day with a question concerning installation, and Mike buttonholed Tim Short who was walking by, and who gave me the information I needed. As it turned out, only a knowledgeable tech would know.
Total revenue from me to you, approximately $35.00.
Total value to me: priceless.
I have already had the opportunity to refer another RVer to you, and will do so in the future. Thank you for such courteous and helpful people, even for such a small purchase.
My wife and I just bought a 2012 Sightseer RV at Tucson La Mesa RV and I want to tell you what a great experience it was for us. Our salesmen were Dick Wydness and Gary Larsen and they both did an excellent job. We called Dick while we were in Utah traveling in our 5th wheel. When we arrived 2 months later in Tucson our new Winnebago was waiting for us with all of the options that we ordered. Trading in our truck and 5th wheel and purchasing our new coach was made very easy by everyone at La Mesa RV.
We needed some minor work done and our service advisor, Dick Adams and his mechanics responded quickly. I know that in the future when we are visiting Tucson and need any work done on our coach I will come to La Mesa RV and have it done there.
After this experience I will look for other La Mesa RV dealerships when we are traveling in other states.
Alan and Carina R.
Short note to deeply express our THANKS. Trailer pulls great. Your driver, Jim Grissom is a keeper, you guys need to recognize this guys politeness, professionalism and is a true ambassador for La Mesa RV. Switchover in Blythe was "easy pezee". King size bed is phenomenal, best sleep in over a month. Trailer overall is phenomenal, only regret we did not do the change earlier, the increase in space has a bigger impact than we imagined.
Cannot thank you enough for making this painless and possible.
Randy and Jan
La Mesa RV,
My family just concluded the sale of my beloved Siesta Sprinter RV to your wonderful company. Dan Blackwell handled what I would describe as a seamless smooth deal. Dan was an incredible guy to discuss the sale and proved to be a credit to your organization. My son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter who concluded the deal told me they were treated very well.
Congratulations on your fine and successful company.
So let’s start by saying that this place by far has the best inventory, quality, and price of all the place I have researched. But where they really separate themselves from the competition is their service. I have tried other places like camping world to get work done and La Mesa is hands down faster, friendlier, and always make sure I have not forgot anything from a maintenance point of view.
My experience - I walk into the service department and am immediately acknowledged and greeted by Sarah (adorable little redhead with just a great personality). From there I ask for the backbone of that dept (Tara). I have been working in service for over 30 years and Tara should teach a class on how to greet, handle, and keep customers. She makes us feel like family and just genuinely cares about me and my concerns. My travel trailer go side swiped and needed some repair via the insurance company. I gave everything to Tara and it was handled. I mean how easy she makes my life is incredible. Not only that she reminds me of a few things I should have checked since it’s been a couple of years and sure enough she is on the mark with each item. She calls and follows up with a status each week and informs me of when I should be able to pick up the trailer from the service dept. The service team does an outstanding job (as usual) and I am back in business.
It is this type of service, genuine caring, and friendliness that keeps me going back. While it’s a bit of a drive I keep going back because they just keep taking such great care of me.
So Tara, Sarah, and the entire service dept. I thank you all for everything you do for me every time I visit.
