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.

Hear what our customers have to say!

Steve,

I would like to thank Patti Britton for her fine service rendered to me while I was buying some truck camper tie down equipment for my ford F-250. There was a problem with the shipping and I was due to leave on a camping trip that had been planned for months. So, Patti sent the items over night and this was an expense to your company above and beyond normal operations. What I'm getting at is that your company really knows the meaning of customer satisfaction and that means a lot to me due to the fact that a lot company's both large and small tend to hide behind these words and don't deliver what they say.

I will always buy from Hilltop RV and will always tell anyone I know about your company and how good I was treated, and that Hilltop delivered no questions asked. This is a great way to do business and I'm very thankful that I know of a place where the customer really gets a great deal. Thanks again, Hilltop RV is the best.

Thank you so very much, and please mention this to Patti.

Dear Mr. Swanson,

I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Hilltop RV in Ishpeming for their excellent service to us while we were traveling through the U.P.

We experienced some plumbing problems in our coach and stopped in Marquette at the Michigan Travel Center to ask where we might find an RV service facility.

We were given Hilltop's number and we called and spoke with Mr. Jim Gresham who told us he would try to fit us into the schedule. Upon arrival and initial discussion, Jim assigned Shawn to see what he could determine. Within minutes, Shawn found the problem and said he could remedy it quickly. He did so, tested the system, found no leaking and buttoned up the piping. Jim Gresham sent us on our way very satisfied.

Unknown to us, a severe storm was approaching the U.P. We stayed at Lake Michigamme for the night only to have our power go out. Thinking it was a problem in our coach, I tried to find and check the various fuses. Finding no problem, we retired for the night. In the morning, we had no furnace. Even with the generator running, we had no heat. I called Jim from the campground and told him we were returning.

Again, within minutes he had Kirk looking for a problem. After the usual inspection and some head scratching, I informed Kirk that I had tried to check the fuse box the previous evening. It didn't take Kirk long to find that I had put one of the fuses back in the wrong slot. We now had a furnace.

Please know that you have a tremendous staff in Ishpeming that we will forever be indebted to for their assistance. The rest of the trip was uneventful and full of great U.P. hospitality.

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.

Lowell and Bobbi Plaugher

I apologize for not sending this note sooner, but wanted to thank you and all the wonderful folks at Hilltop for getting me the camper of my dreams! We just love the Tracer Executive camper you selected for us; it has all the amenities I wanted! Your outstanding customer service and attention to detail is very much appreciated! We certainly have been enjoying it a lot, and the grandchildren love the bunkhouse! Your mail-order service made it easy to order items that we could not find elsewhere, and the friendly courteous service was appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you regarding the "winterization clinic."
You made owning the camper of our dreams so easy!! Thank you once again for everything.

Nancy M.
