Club Car, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, earned the National Association of Parks and Campground’s (ARVC) supplier of the year award for 2017. The annual award is presented to an industry supplier that exemplifies excellence in product solutions, innovation and customer service and support.

The award was presented at the organization’s 2017 Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo in November.

“We are pleased to be recognized for the contributions we’ve made to the outdoor hospitality industry. By supplying fleets of small four-wheel rental vehicles, and designing innovative leasing and financing options for the unique needs of this market, Club Car creates a new and profitable revenue stream for campgrounds,” says Jeff C. Miller, director of sales, global strategic accounts and custom solutions.

Campgrounds may choose two- or four-passenger Precedent® golf cars, Villager™ street-legal low speed vehicles (LSVs) or two- or four-wheel drive XRT™ utility vehicles, depending on their location and needs. All are manufactured on rustproof aluminum frames to withstand the campground environment. Service agreements are available through local Authorized Club Car Dealers.

An Innovative Business Model

Club Car’s pioneering and flexible leasing option lets RV parks avoid the user dissatisfaction, high maintenance cost, downtime and lack of warranty coverage that often comes with the pre-owned vehicles historically used for campgrounds rentals.

Since leasing requires little or no down payment, campgrounds preserve their capital and start earning profits immediately. Further, leasing payments are generally tax deductible and lower than purchase payments. Club Car also makes additional vehicles available as needed, and offers flexible payment options that allow parks to pay only during the season, when they are earning rental income.
