The RV Dealers Convention/Expo 2023, scheduled from November 6-10, at Paris Las Vegas, is gearing up to be a pivotal event in the RV industry. This year, the spotlight is on the often-neglected benefits of selling F&I products, with workshops designed to enhance dealership profitability.
Led by Shawn Moran, director of F&I RV training at BBDS, Brown & Brown Insurance, these workshops aim to delve deep into the intricacies of dealership offerings. Moran’s expertise promises to shed light on areas that can significantly impact a dealership’s bottom line.
On November 7, attendees will be treated to “F&I Essential Menu Tool Kit 101”. This session will explore the art of interviewing a customer effectively, the nuances between up-front closing and day-of-delivery closing, and the importance of a well-structured menu to present varied repayment and product options.
Key takeaways from this workshop include mastering product-driven interviewing skills, the importance of menuing every customer every time, and understanding the value of higher protection plan sales for increased profits, according to a press release.
Two days later, on November 9, Moran will delve into the significance of the Roadside Protection Plan. Through engaging mediums like videos and sample scenarios, attendees will understand the myriad benefits of this plan, from 24-hour RV Tech support to unique offerings like mobile tire dispatch without a spare.
This session promises to equip dealers with strategies to retain customers, reduce tech service calls, boost F&I profitability, and differentiate themselves from competitors through enhanced service protection benefits.
