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.

Just a note to express our gratitude to your extremely kind and considerate staff for its amazing hospitality and expertise working on an extremely hot and muggy last Saturday morning. You know, one of those travelers nightmares and managers delights.

Here we were, out-of-towners stranded with a camper that wouldn't open, caught at the mercy of both the elements and possible unscrupulous enterprises. I mean, short of being hit by a semi, how much worse can it get?

As I watched the two men sweating to repair the Palomino on this hot time-and-a-half rate Saturday morning, I could almost predict, see in fact, the monster maws of a huge bill open about to gobble us up. But then, after it was all over, a miracle occurred. A beautiful young woman walked out from behind the counter and presented us a bill for... what?? $51.15?? Fifty-one dollars and fifteen cents for all that?? 'My God, she must be kidding. This has to be a mistake. For all that work??'

But no! The Goddess smiled and said the bill was correct.

To all Gods and Goddesses at Hilltop RV, thank you so much.

We wanted Hilltop to know how much we enjoy working with everyone there starting with yourself, Gary, the technicians (Dave & Nick & Nick's assistant), and the lovely sales ladies who are always cheerful and ready to assist us while working the front lines. Diane Swanson, our RV consultant, is awesome! She is extremely knowledgeable and a true professional. It should also be noted that Diane came in to work early on the day we were scheduled to pick up our 5th wheel trailer, where she provided her undivided assistance to us throughout that entire process. Our whole experience with Hilltop was smooth, seamless, and exceptional!!!

Manager & Service Staff,

We were just beginning a month long RV tour to Canada in mid-July when our propane alarm went off. We will be forever grateful that it happened only an hour from Hilltop RV.

Every single person was helpful, courteous, and capable. You took us without an appointment and spent several hours repairing our rig. Not only that, but the part needed to repair the leak was delivered to our campsite the next day.

This kind of personal skilled and caring services are rare in today's world. Thank you for ensuring that our trip was safe and if ever a referral is needed, we would be more than happy to make it.
