Fridley, MN. – In a ceremony on November 22nd, Jayco® presented their most prestigious dealer honor, The Founders’ Award, to Hilltop Camper and RV®. The Jayco Founders’ Award was established in 2002 and is presented annually.
The award honors a dealership:
- whose ownership and management consistently reflect a dedication to outstanding sales and customer support;
- who, over an extended period of time, has demonstrated a loyalty and commitment to Jayco;
- whose professional operations have brought credit to Jayco and the RV industry; and
- which embodies the spirit of the founders of Jayco.
Ken Walters, President of Jayco commented, “The 2021 recipient, Hilltop Camper and RV, truly exemplifies all of the values that this award stands for. They have been a great partner for over 30 years and we are honored to be able to visit them and present the trophy in-person to their team.”
Hilltop Camper and RV began operations in 1951 when Roy Pearo opened the first location, in Hilltop Minnesota. In the mid-1960s, his sons, Jerry and Dick, joined Roy to continue growing the business. Then as Dick’s family grew, his four sons, Dave, Mike, James and Jeffrey joined the company and took on an ownership role following Jerry’s retirement in 2012. Today the third generation family-owned and operated dealership has expanded to four locations, added additional family members to the team of loyal employees, and is considered an RV industry leader. Throughout the course of 70 years their dedication to exemplary customer satisfaction remains unchanged.
Mike Pearo, Hilltop Camper and RV stated, “We are extremely excited to receive Jayco’s most prestigious award! It is an honor and a pleasure to work with a great company like Jayco and feel that the ethics and family culture of Jayco are a perfect match with our dealership’s foundation. We want to thank Jayco for being a great partner and for presenting us the Founders Award.”
