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.

In our book Gary is "Tops." When we started, we didn't know what we wanted and had an idea, but so much information to digest. Gary guided us through new and used. What we liked about Gary was he is not pushy. Gary showed us what you had and gave us his opinion on the trailers, then let you make up your mind.

He really knows his stuff. I would recommend him to anyone. We looked at at least twelve different trailer dealers in three states, and maybe 50 or 60 trailers. Gary was the first sales person who we felt comfortable with. Thanks a bunch for all your help Gary.

Dear Michelle,

I wish to thank you and the management team for the quick attention to my recent complaint.

Though I didn't get the bullet splices I wanted installed, I am happy with the way the technician cleaned up the wiring mess and the refund and gift card I received. It is good to know you are concerned with customer satisfaction and your company's reputation.

I have related this to other campers so they will know you stand behind your employees work.

Once again thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Dear Hilltop RV & Cory Walker,

Sandy and I want to let you know that we appreciated the very good service work that was recently completed on our 2015 Flagstaff Trailer. After our summer trip to Yellowknife there was a long list of things that needed care and fixing on our Unit. The work was done well and we are glad to have the trailer back home so we can get it ready for a November outing over Thanksgiving weekend.

This Trailer is surely a dream come true and we want to compliment the entire staff at Hilltop who took care of the recent list of repairs. Your firm has definitely stood behind the product you sold to us in exemplary fashion.

Sincerely,
Rick and Sandy Elder

Dave - Just a note to thank you and Hilltop RV Superstore for the great service and friendliness I received at your facility. This is the second time I have had to use your services. Two years ago I brought my RV in with a slideout problem. You found the problem, repaired it and I was on my way within 2 hours. No waiting. Great!

This year I developed another problem with my current RV - water pump and converter. By the way, both times I came in from Newberry (Pike Lake). I brought the unit in August 6th and it was repaired by the next day. I picked it up on August 8th. Our vacation wasn't ruined!

Both times your repair charge was very fair and honest. Many thanks to you and your crew! I will always recommend Hilltop to anyone I meet in the UP who needs RV work done. You treated me like you had known me for years!

Sincerely, John Schilling, Albion, Michigan
