Jon Ferrando, Chief Executive Officer and President of RVR stated, “We are excited to expand with a major facility investment in the greater Austin, Texas market. The investment in two new facilities at our Buda, TX location will give us almost 50,000 square feet of sales and service capacity including 46 service bays across two separate full-service dealership facilities. This will allow us to provide an extraordinary experience for our customers in sales and service.”
Jon Ferrando added, “The plan provides us a dedicated world-class Airstream facility that will be one of the finest in the country to rival our flagship Airstream of Tampa location. Our team has delivered as the #1 Airstream dealer in the U.S. Central Region for three years in a row. We are also building a new ExploreUSA Supercenter on the campus that will include a wide array of outstanding RV brands.”
“The City of Buda is one of the fastest growing in Texas with 145% population growth from 2010-2020 and the dealership location right on I-35 is outstanding.

We appreciate all the support for our plans from the City of Buda Mayor and City Council, Buda Economic Development Corporation, and Chamber of Commerce,” added Jon Ferrando.
