Ansley RV History

Ansley RV is a family owned and operated RV dealership in Central Pennsylvania. William Ansley Sr. and his partner, Jack Lewis, founded the dealership in 1947 as a used car and truck operation. The business’s location hasn’t changed since 1950, still settled between historic Hollidaysburg, and Altoona. Operating as Ansley & Lewis throughout the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, we cultivated our reputation as a friendly, inviting place to make a purchase.

When Jack Lewis retired in the late 60’s, Bill Ansley Jr. took a more active role in the company. He began purchasing shares of the business while Bill Ansley Sr. enjoyed the RV lifestyle, traveling between Pennsylvania and Florida. As sole owner, Bill Jr. taught Bill III and Marc the RV business, and the importance of excellent customer service.  In the early 90’s, Ansley & Lewis officially became Ansley RV.

Ansley RV continued to stock and sell hundreds of recreational vehicles a year, progressing into a full line dealership. The dealership offers full servicing/parts of all types of RV’s, including; travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, hybrid trailers, Class A, B, and C motorhomes, diesel pushers, and Pop-Up campers. 

Current Ansley RV

Today Bill III and Marc continue to promote the RV lifestyle and embrace the values taught to them by their father and grandfather. The many longtime employees at Ansley RV are the backbone of the family business and the key to the friendly atmosphere you will enjoy when you make your purchase.

Ansley RV is now one of the largest full service dealerships on the East Coast. Our certified service technicians, trained parts and warranty personnel and our friendly, knowledgeable sales staff can assist in every phase of the RV experience. Ansley RV has earned countless service and sales awards from many leading RV manufacturers and suppliers including Newmar, Airstream, Winnebago, Keystone, Forest River, and Grand Design! We strive to stock the latest trends in the industry and the best selection to meet our customers' needs.

At Ansley RV, we take great pride in our reputation for our outstanding customer service and in the longevity of our employees. Our employees are the key to our success in the RV industry. Their dedication creates a family atmosphere and our customers in turn benefit from their years of experience, training and dedication.

Ansley RV rests between the railroad city of Altoona, and the historic borough of Hollidaysburg. While nestled between Pennsylvania’s mountains, the third generation, family owned dealership offers a familiar atmosphere while providing excellent customer service.

Newmar Corporation initially recognized Ansley RV’s potential twelve years ago when presenting the dealership the CSI Award. The Customer Service Index (CSI) Award is presented to dealerships that scored in a predetermined percentile based on customer surveys. Ansley RV continued to deliver excellent customer service, gaining them the CSI Award for the twelfth straight year.

In conjunction with the CSI Award, Ansley RV gained Platinum Servicing Dealer status for the past four years. To qualify, a dealership must meet a stringent list of requirements including; having a CSI of 90% or above, passing tough facility evaluations, having a commitment to training, and employing a certain number of RVIA certified and Master certified technicians.

The Mahlon Miller Service Excellence Award, named after Newmar Corporation's founder, is awarded to two dealerships, one large market and one small market, every year. Like the CSI Award and Platinum Servicing Dealer, the Mahlon Miller Service Excellence Award is based off of the Customer Service Index, but represents the highest customer service percentage in a given market. Newmar Corporation offered the award since 2004; Ansley RV has won it five times, four of which were consecutive.
