Route 66 RV Network
The ROUTE 66 RV Network began in 2003. For over 25 years, brothers Steve & Dave Francis and long time friend Rob Merrill had crisscrossed in their careers. Each had observed the consolidation of many industries that were once dominated by family owned independent businesses give way to “Big Box” retail chains and most recently internet upstarts. As the owner of Trailside RV Center, Steve saw the clear consumer benefits of buying from a locally owned business, as well as the tangible synergies of connecting those dealers into a cohesive group committed to serving RV consumers as they travel.
