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!

HilltopRV Superstore and Patti - what a piece of gold way up north.

First, a comment on the website - easy on the eyes, easy to navigate and easy to find what one is shopping for. So many storefronts on the web make it so difficult to find or use their site, but not Hilltop RV. A website, at least for me, needs to capture me quick or I'm off to another site.
The design of the Hilltop RV Superstore is done with the customer in mind - just excellent.

Secondly, if one has to call, it is so rare to find a real person who really cares, who will walk more than the "extra mile" for you, and is sooooo easy and pleasant to work with, and, does what she says she will do. As often experience, the voice on the other end is just that, a voice, and an impersonal one, at that. Not at Hilltop RV, Patti makes you feel like she has known you for years, that you are special, and, man, can she get it done!! Just a short conversation and you know you are dealing with a hard working, caring, honest, and trustworthy individual.

I'll keep coming back for my RV needs, for sure!

This message is for Steve Swanson:

Steve, my husband Gary and I have been watching your commercials on TV-6. Excellent! The "feelings" you portray of making family memories is so true! We have had our disagreements in the past but we love our new camper and it has made exceptional memories for us and our 7 grandchildren this summer. I feel safe. My grandchildren are "city kids" and to expose them to an entire other world like camping has given them a feeling of security and insight into a whole other world out there. Thank you!

You have stood by your word in your commercials of satisfied customers and I am very appreciative of your classy style of being loyal and open to your customers. We even got our repairs done in Ishpeming.

Thanks Steve. Take care to you and your family.

I wanted to let you know what a pleasant service experience we recently had at Hilltop RV. I especially want to thank Service Advisor Jennifer for all of her help. We began experiencing wiring problems with our unit on the way north on Sunday. We camped at the RV Park behind your dealership on Monday. I came over to see if there was a chance to get it looked at sometime Monday. Jennifer was very accommodating and was able to get the unit in and assigned a technician. With the help of Twin City Ford the problem was identified and the problem corrected.

From there we traveled to Duluth and while there experienced hot water heater problems. I phoned Jennifer and asked if we would be able to have Hilltop Service the water heater on our return trip through Ishpeming. Again she did her best and was very accommodating in getting our 5th wheel in and assigned it to service technician Jim. Jim quickly diagnosed the problem and replaced the unit. We were on our way quickly.

Your dealership should feel very lucky to have such accommodating people working for you.
