The focus for the Swanson family business focused away from camper manufacturing to RV sales in the mid 70's. Within a decade, Hilltop RV became one of  Michigan's largest RV dealers. Through the years, they added boat/motor sales and a complete line of outdoor sporting goods to the retail mix, only to return to their RV roots in the mid-90's. "We decided to get out of every endeavor that wasn't directly related to the RV industry," recalls Steve Swanson.  "We decided to do what we do best, RV sales and service. That decision not only simplified our entire operation, but it allowed us to focus on what we really enjoyed most."

Today, Hilltop RV Superstore sells 17 different brands of motorhomes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, folding trailers, truck campers, and cargo trailers. Hilltop RV also has a RV parts and accessories store at each dealership location, as well as a RV parts and accessories website with over 60,000 products available online at Hilltop RV Parts and Accessories Store.

One of Hilltop RV Superstore's major accomplishments among many other high esteemed awards by RV Manufacturers was being recognized by the National Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association. Each year the RVDA recognizes exemplary regional businessmen who promote a positive image of RV travel, RV dealers, and the industry as a whole. In September 2001, Hilltop RV Superstore was chosen by the RVDA as "Top Quality Dealer of the Year."
Hilltop RV Superstore is in a market of about 30,000 people in Delta County, yet Hilltop RV consistently stays in the top 5 dealers in Michigan and Wisconsin in terms of the number of RV's sold and is highly competitive with the so called "big boys" in the metropolitan areas. There is a reason for that. Hilltop RV Superstore sells RV's all across the country.  Hopefully, you will give Hilltop RV the chance to show you why no other dealer provides better customer service before, during, and after the sale!
Steve and his brother Dan have co-owned and operated the family business since the year 2000. Steve has served as Hilltop's General Manager since his parents retired in 1987. In 2006, a second Hilltop RV Superstore was opened in Ishpeming, Michigan to better serve the heart of the Upper Peninsula. The Ishpeming store was built on the same hometown values and hospitality that began in Escanaba in 1972. Given the dealership's remarkable past, the folks at Hilltop RV will no doubt continue doing what they do best, keeping the "Super" in Hilltop RV Superstore.

About Hilltop RV

Steve Swanson's journey to an RV Superstore did not happen overnight. He began as a part-time employee in 1972 while still attending High School.  That's when his parents, Ken and Theresa Swanson, launched their business as manufacturers of truck campers.

Through the years, the family enterprise included the production of sidelights such as solar heating panels, satellite dishes, and TV antennas. At Hilltop RV, elements of design, manufacturing, sales and service were all learned firsthand, from the inside-out.

Quick note to once again say "Thank You" to you and your staff for the
outstanding customer service we received yesterday! In particular, I would
like to thank Danielle, Erik and unfortunately I didn't get the name of the
tech who installed our 5th wheel hitch, nor the parts department gentleman
who gave us a ride to the mall! Those folks went "out of their way" to make
our day! Please extend to them my sincerest appreciation for their efforts!
It's employees like you and them who make folks like us keep coming back!
... (and spreading the good word about you!)

Thanks again!

Diane and Hilltop Staff,

Wanted to let you know i made it home without any problems with my "New" camper.

Although I had no real plans on buying to the dollar degree I did, your professional guidance through your available inventory and by listening to my needs brought us to a very successful conclusion today, and my wife approved!! So we done good!

I want to thank you all who participated. The great smiles and attitude, from sales, service and parts, you all were great.

From the day I walked in, to the wave off from your great service tech who very professionally spent the time necessary to educate me and to make sure I was good to go.

Thank you! We'll be back, and we're gonna tell everybody why! You all get a high five!

Good morning Steve,

Just a short thank you for providing my wife Cheryl and I with our new 2010 Keystone Cougar as we drove our first 5th wheel home to Kingsford on March 31, 2010.

A special note of thanks for the great job that Cory Walker did answering all of our questions and making us feel like members of your RV family. He always returned our phone calls and replied promptly to our e-mail messages.

Also, please personally thank Dan in service for the excellent commitment in providing all the right answers to our many questions during our orientation before leaving Hilltop RV with our retirement dream 5th wheel.
