In 1971, we brought camping to the Tri-State. From a small service station on the north side, Basden's American RV Center began. Before long, the service station was too small and the fledgling dealership was moved to Columbia Street in Evansville. For decades, our first "real" location continued to grow. Service bays were added, the parts and accessories store was expanded, but before long, we needed more room to spread out in order to keep our promise of quick service and exceptional customer experience. In the late 1990s, our current location was opened. This location features 18 service bays, with more in the works, 25000 square feet of climate-controlled showroom, an indoor customer orientation area, and acres of paved outdoor display for our customers to browse at their own pace.
Today, our legacy continues as Evansville's premiere RV dealership. Whether you're from Owensboro, Petersburg, or anywhere in between, we are here to ensure your RV experience is the best it can be. Our customers come from Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky just to experience what American RV is all about. Our large selection of travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers, and motorhomes from top manufacturers such as: Keystone Springdale, Cougar, and Montana; Forest River Cherokee, Grey Wolf, and Wolf Pup; Coachmen Catalina, Freedom Express, Apex, and Northern Spirit; and our newest addition, Alliance Paradigm, Delta, and Avenue; are all unlocked and open for you to dream about and browse. Our no-pressure staff are here to help you find the perfect RV for your budget, need, AND wants.
We look forward to welcoming you to the family!
