Hi Wana RV
Just wanted to share this, we bought a Passport travel trailer from you a few months back.
It was for lady in the circus in Australia & she wanted it to stand out, she had it done in a hot pink vinyl wrap.
It sure does stand out!
I had researched for several months to find the travel trailer to meet my needs. I needed one light enough to pull with my Jeep Cherokee V6 factory equipped for towing. Once I decided on the Rockwood Mini Lite 1905, I started my search for the dealer that could provide it with all the options I wanted at a fair price. That is when I found Wana RV. I called them and they were able to order my travel trailer with the options I wanted and beat the price of all the other dealers I had checked with. I was actually a little shocked at the price he quoted me. My trailer came in within the time frame I was given. My wife and I are on our first trip in our new Rockwood and traveled from Indiana to New Mexico. It has performed flawlessly. If you are looking for a new RV, I highly recommend Wana RV. Happy Travels.
The people at Wana RV are truly special, thankful we bought there. Touring the Rockwood plant was also memorial. Every person I now show our trailer to gets to hear about that tour.
Again, after years of looking the Rockwood remains the top quality, best value travel trailer on the market. After seeing the quality in the local area, it is no wonder why we love the Rockwood’s. The plant tour made that all make since to us. My neighbor looked over the trailer yesterday and said that Rockwood thought of every detail. We know!
Again, you may use my pictures however you like. Preferably to promote Forest River. All fun to me, and we are so thankful.
We are starting our Alaska journey by camping three miles from home in Titusville, Florida this weekend. To Practice, Plan and Pack (PPP). I worked in Aerospace, we love acronyms! Wonder if we would get better miles per gallon if we used the Yamaha scooter to pull the trailer!!? I washed and waxed the trailer yesterday and it sure shined up nicely. Quality products are- well, quality.
You might not see it but we are taking your entire plant staff with us on our trip. All of your spirit is in our trailer and we are appreciative of that.
I just bought a Zinger Z1 301BH travel trailer from Wana RV Center. It was a great time I had with Mr. Gary and his staff with warm welcome. I love my RV and I took it to the safari desert camping which was a wonderful and awesome day with my new camper trailer. Thanks Wana RV Team for the cooperation.

Just want to let you know how much my wife and I like our Rockwood Mini-Lite that we bought from Wana RV last fall. My wife calls it our little cabin in the woods. It is just the right size for two people to use.We camped in it for 18 nights this year. Thank for servicing it this week.
Terry and Velma Peck
We wanted to send a note to let you and the wonderful staff at Wana RV Center know how happy we are with our new Rockwood Signature unit. Everyone was courteous and professional. We would not hesitate to recommend your business to anyone.

We just bought a camper from Wana RV. Having dealt with 2 other RV dealers in the past, Wana RV is the best! They took care of us in a friendly, professional way and made everything happen fast and easy. I would recommend Wana RV to anyone interested in buying an RV, they're the best! Ray and Kelly Rentfrow
Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with our Rockwood Ultra-Lite and the the service you and your staff have provided before and after the sale. So far we have traveled to Harper's Ferry, WV and just got back from Black Hills, SD.
Mike and Mary VanDenLangenberg
Thank you for the excellent service before and after our purchase of our new Rockwood travel trailer! We love it and happy we traveled from Tennessee to get it.

I have wanted to write you a note for some time now, to share our experiences with your company. Finally, here it is. If you are reading this, your research days are over, provided Wana RV sells the brand you want. It is that simple. It really is.
Last spring we began researching travel trailers at dealerships, RV Shows and on the internet. Floor plan, weight, length, fit and finish, were all important to us. Price was not even a consideration at that point. Once we had settled on a floor plan and brand, I sent an email to the salespeople we had dealt with and of course, Wana RV. I explained what we were looking for, that I recognized that shipping cost was a legitimate expense and that I did not expect a local price to beat an internet price. Obviously there are reasons to buy local.
I heard back from Keaton almost immediately and the others? Not so much. I was actually, both surprised and disappointed with the local dealerships (Phoenix area & Prescott). Enough said.
The price was not even an issue. It was more than fair as presented to us, so for us, it was just a matter of deciding when to order the unit, so that it would be available to us later in the summer for a trip we were planning with friends.
Shipshewana, IN was a bonus. This is a delightful little town. We stayed there a couple nights just to get familiar with the trailer. Later on our trip, we learned our friends wanted to go on a factory tour and visit some of the RV supply businesses in northern IN. We told them we knew just the place to stay, Shipshewana.
In our dealings with Wana RV, we had occasion to work with, and/or talk to, Keaton, JoLisa, Justin, Gary, Brian and Kerry. Without exception they were all a pleasure to do business with, meaning, if you sent an email, you got a response right back. If you called with a question, you got an answer. I want to single out Kerry (Service manager), as he was the one that we probably worked the most with. He initially took us through our trailer and was there for us a day or two later to answer any questions we had. He could not have been more pleasant. Especially on the second visit, while he patiently answered questions that were quite likely covered in our "Owner's Manual". Then while touring Michigan we decided that it might be advantages to get an awning over the slide out, like you often see on more expensive RV's. So on our second visit to the area, we arranged to get one through Kerry. We dropped our trailer off mid-day and Kerry had it back to us first thing the next day. You can't beat that.
Lastly, I should point out that I like to recognize businesses that give me exceptional service and to be honest; I don't have to write many letters. In fact, I just checked and this is only the fourth letter I have written in the last five years.

We wanted you all at Wana RV, to know how very pleased we are with our whole experience of dealing with Wana RV in beautiful Shipshewana, Indiana.
After searching the Internet for many weeks, we were able to find the best deal on the Rockwood Signature Ultralite 8289WS Fifth Wheel that we really wanted, at Wana RV.
From our very first enquiry by email, to actually meeting you in person, has been a great experience. All of our questions were answered quickly and courteously. We were a bit apprehensive to be buying a new Fifth wheel, sight unseen over the internet, and you were able to tell us, and show us what we needed to know.
When we arrived at the shop to meet our new fifth wheel, we were glad to see that it was inside your facility, out of the cold, and all set up and ready for us. The Service Dept was very patient and knowledgeable about the various features of our Forest River Rockwood 8289WS and showed us the controls and buttons for slide outs, furnace, air conditioning, fridge, stove, awnings, etc.
We appreciated the professionalism shown to us by the Sales Dept, and also the rest of the staff we met. We not only fell in love with our new unit at first sight, but are also pleased that we could not find fault with the workmanship and quality of our new home.
Once again we would like to thank Wana RV for your exceptional customer service and follow through.

Our new camper that you set us up with followed my Suburban all the way to Daytona Beach, FL. The new camper is doing real good. No problems. Thanks for the fine job of checking it all out. You guys and gals are real good.
It was a pleasure meeting you and doing business with you. Everyone was very nice and helpful.

We are from Canada and the Wana RV Team did everything they said they would do. Getting the trailer across the border was simple. This is a good company to deal with. Brian U'Ren

Just wanted to thank you for ordering the decal we wanted to put on our truck. It is on and looks great!! We really appreciate the friendly and fast service you continually provide. We highly recommend your dealership to everyone we talk with.
Thanks Again, Leroy and Donna Fugate

To Wana RV and perspective buyers,
I want to say thanks for all your help with the purchase and acquisition of our brand new travel trailer. We had the pleasure of dealing with all the people at Wana RV. Your web-site is fantastic and has so many trailers to choose from. We really liked the up-front pricing and the no pressure sales approach. Also your quick (usually the same day) response to our numerous e-mails was greatly appreciated. While deciding which trailer was best for us, We were sent a detailed quote on each model we were interested in, fast as I could ask for them.
Once the decision was made we were able to modify the quote by taking out the options that we didn't need and add in the options that suited us, this saved us even more money combined with the already low price.
To all Canadians,
Making such a large purchase in another country can be a little unnerving, but with Wana RV it was easy as pie.
They have ALL your paper work ready to go for the return border crossing. It only took us approx. 20 min. to go Through customs, that included everything. At the border you will be required to pay the GST (5%) portion of the HST. Once home we registered the trailer online with RIV (riv.ca), paid the fee of $220 which includes your Canadian Certification at Canadian Tire. After the trailer passes it's safety you can then license it at your local license bureau where you will have to pay the provincial (8%) portion of the HST. THAT'S IT!
This is a photo from our last trip, a weeklong stay at Balsam Lake Provincial Park. Our next trip is to Darien Lake.
They have trailers available to rent but we like ours so much were brining it with us. Sometimes we just camp in our own driveway. Camping in an RV is the best money your family will ever spend.

My husband and I purchased a 2011 Crossroads Cruiser from Wana RV. We can't say enough about what a GREAT place it is to do business. We decided to deal with Wana RV because of their pricing and we left there much more impressed with the way they treated us.
Even though they are located 4.5 hours from our home in Wisconsin we felt comfortable enough talking to JoLisa on the phone that we decided to travel to Indiana. JoLisa answered all of our questions open and honestly, and even suggested we stay away from certain upgrades that we may not benefit from, there was no pressure at all.
We finally decided on what we wanted and placed our order. We picked up our new camper May 7th. We were traveling from Wisconsin and our appointment was set for 8:00 a.m. As it turned out we had some issues which caused us to be late for our appointment. We finally arrived at 11:30. At that time they were taking care of another customer. We were hungry so Gary told us to take his Lincoln to get some lunch while they installed hitch equipment on our truck. When we returned we got right in for our walk through with the camper. Their service department men, Kerry and Brian, took their time while explaining everything thoroughly to us. It was overall a very positive experience.
Bob and Rita Gladem
We love our new camper and recommend Wana RV to anybody looking for RV equipment or service.
Want to thank you and your staff for making the purchase of our ECO an easy experience. We were apprehensive about importing it into Canada but you assured us that all the papers were in order and we wouldn't have any problems. You were right, it was a breeze.
We appreciated your help in showing us the ins and outs of the trailer and made us comfortable and confident when we began our long journey home. Would like to point out that Kerry went the extra mile in his instructions and no question seemed to be too small. Your follow up, after the purchase, was important and made it easy for us to winterize the trailer. Thanks very much and good luck in your business.

I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that we are still very satisfied customers. We purchased our Kodiak 23TT from you a little over a year ago and have had no longings for anything different. It has served us well at 8 different locations in four different state. We still show it to anyone who will look and also tell them what a pleasure it was dealing with you and your wife at Wana RV.
We just returned from a 2000 mile trip to 3 locations over a 9 day period. Here is a picture of us whitewater rafting in the Smokey mountains.

Just a quick note from the road to say "Mahalo Nui Loa!!" (that's Thanks Very Much!) for all of your help with the purchase of our new Kokiak travel trailer. Being from Hawaii, we obviously knew VERY little about the whole RV world, and your helpful guidance and suggestions made our decision making much easier. Transacting a major purchase across an ocean and half of a continent was scarry, but you really came through for us, and the whole process was amazingly calm and pain free in the end.
The accessories you advised us to purchase have worked out wonderfully through these first few thousand miles of our mainland adventure, and we have been very pleased with everything. The staff at Wana RV really came through for us, and I towed the rig away from your front door feeling confident and relaxed. Thanks for making this whole experience truly special. It's a wonderful trailer, just as you promised it would be and it suits us very well. Thanks expecially for the continued support and friendship since we left Shipshewana, you've definitely become Ho'Ohana to us, (Like Family). Tim & Wendy Fields-Lardie and Saundra Smith
We really appreciate the way you go above and beyond to treat your customers right. We still think that you offer a great service in the way you work personally with the buyer. We know that you are growing as a dealer and branching out with added members to your sales team, but we like knowing that you are willing and able to communicate directly with us. We appreciate how prompt you are at replying to us through emails, too. We always know that if we need anything, you will reply within the day instead of leaving us waiting for a response. You have definitely earned our highest recommendations with the way you have treated us in our search for the perfect camper.

We are really thrilled with our Zinger; we think this time we finally hit it right! The layout of this unit is ideal for our family - it is just so roomy and that makes a huge difference when you experience less than ideal weather...something that can be counted on in Indiana! We love that we can all be in the camper stretched out watching a movie, playing games and coloring at the table or- as the boys were this morning- racing cars across the floor and still be able to move around without being in one another's way. We even have room for our latest addition to the family- Levi, our Boston Terrior puppy. His cage has a great spot sitting on the floor beside the door to our bedroom- out of the way but still close to where everything is going on. On top of all the great room to move, we are thrilled with all the storage this camper offers. Jeremy has ample room to store all of his necessities in the outside storage area while I have cabinets to spare inside! We could easily bring along everything we need for a week long vacation and still have space to spare; even though Jeremy says I bring along everything that's not nailed down from home. We just couldn't be happier!
Thanks for all you have done and know that we tell everyone about your excellent service. We know that dealers like you are a rare find from stories we hear from our camping friends and family members. Thanks for giving us nothing but good to share! We will come your way when and if our family outgrows the Zinger.
I pray you and your family are doing well. I am sorry that his message has been so long in coming. We have taken two trips in our Kodiak 23TT since picking it up. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. I have had an opportunity to use everything on the camper. Other campers at the campgrounds all want a walkthrough and are very impressed with the space and efficiency. They are double impressed when I tell them about how easy it is to purchase through WANARV. I always have to tell them about how nice your guys were and how efficient Patti was. It was indeed a pleasant experience dealing with you and your company. George, Lisa, Stephanie and Rebecca Moore
I have attached a photo of our fifth-wheel and two of our daughters at the badlands of South Dakota. We had a great trip, went to Yellowstone and many other places. We really enjoyed the Ameri-Camp, had no problems.
It's been nice doing business with you. Guy & Karen Vallengeon
Just a note to say how much we appreciated your helpfulness in the purchase of our 5th wheel RV. It was a pleasure doing business with you. It was a little unnerving purchasing such a large item over the internet, but after communicating with you, by e-mail and phone, we quickly gained confidence and trust.
The trailer was all that we expected and more. Thank you for the extra effort you put into making sure that "all our ducks were in a row" to cross the border into Canada. All went smoothly and we were through in no time. We are looking forward to more transactions in the future.
P.S. Really appreciated all the attention to details. Also loved the town and the atmosphere. Larry & Judy Myhal
"On November 24, 2003, my wife and I took possession of our new 5th wheel from Wana RV Center in Shipshewana IN. It is so nice, that we both feel guilty for indulging in such an extravagance. The finished unit is far better than we expected. On the way home, we would sit and look at the exceptional workmanship displayed in the cabinets, the outstanding design, and the very good craftsmanship throughout. The persons that did the caulking should be commended, they did an exceptional job. Wherever a joint exists, there is a very thin caulk line without any overlap.
Lights are everywhere. Many people asked about the manufacturer while traveling home. We have the unit set up on the side of our home awaiting friends and family to inspect it. Also, we plan to show it off at the annual Qrartzsite AZ RV show in January.
