ARVC Announces Club Car Member Benefit
The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) formally announced on Wednesday (Feb. 29) a new member benefit program in partnership with Club Car, considered the leading manufacturer of golf cars and utility vehicles. Club Car, an Ingersoll Rand brand, is highly respected for its innovation, product quality and customer satisfaction, according to a news release.
ARVC members can now receive 25 percent off the manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) for Club Car’s signature 4-passenger golf car, the Precedent i2 Villager 4, as well as 15 percent to 20 percent discounts on 28 other types of electric and gasoline-powered vehicles, both new and factory refurbished, within the Club Car product line.
"This program brings tremendous value to campground operators who need golf cars and utility vehicles for guest service, park maintenance and housekeeping activities," said Paul Bambei, ARVC president and CEO, noting that discounts on a single vehicle can be worth the cost of several years’ of ARVC membership.
“We are honored to have been selected to join the elite portfolio of partners supporting ARVC and confident that our expansive line of high-quality vehicles will create exceptional value for ARVC members,” said Ryan McClellan, manager, Strategic and Government Accounts, Club Car.
Club Car is offering two- and four-year warranties for each vehicle sold through the discount program. Additionally, through the extensive network of local Club Car dealer partners, ARVC members can obtain service and attractive financing terms for both vehicle purchase and lease.
Private park operators can find the closest Club Car dealer by visiting www.arvc.org and clicking the Club Car Member Benefit Announcement, then select the nearest dealer link. ARVC members are required to provide the local dealer with their ARVC ID number along with a copy of their arvc membership certificate. To receive the arvc ID number and your current arvc membership certificate, please contact Derek Dick at 303-681-0401, x 116.
ARVC’s discount program with Club Car is the latest in a series of exclusive member benefit programs that ARVC has negotiated with nationally recognized product and service providers to private park operators.
Last month, ARVC announced an agreement with the Ford Motor Company to provide ARVC members with net purchase price discounts of 15 to 20 percent below the MSRP for almost every car, truck, or van in the Ford product line for 2012.
Other new member benefits include an exclusive discount program with Just In Time Communications, Inc., a national distributor for DIRECTV, to provide satellite television service to ARVC member parks at rates that can save park operators tens of thousands of dollars a year, depending on the size of their park.
ARVC has also secured a preferred provider agreement with Skyline Corp., which now provides ARVC member parks with significant savings on towable travel trailers, as well as park models, which are custom designed for use as rental units. Combined with existing agreements with long time member benefit providers such as Evergreen Insurance, John Deere, Suburban/Ferralgas/Amerigas LP, Sherwin Williams, and many others, a member’s savings can be significant over the course of a year.
