Alpin Haus Expands with New RV Sales Facility

GANSEVOORT — On June 14 Alpin Haus celebrated the ending of a multi-year project, which created a brand new sales office and customer lounge at Alpin Haus RV of Saratoga. The expansion adds 3,600-square-feet and cost close to $500,000 according to Alpin Haus President Andy Heck. Expansion follows a 68 percent growth in RV sales since 2014.

“I just think that the traffic pattern on the I-87 corridor... It’s been such a great corridor for camping, for people going up to the Adirondacks. So we get not just locally, but we get a lot of transient people who camp up that way and use us as their store,” Heck said.

The new facility expands upon the 30 Gordon Lane location. It features new service bays, a new parts and accessories store, and a redesigned sales lot designed to create more space for customers to browse the latest recreational vehicles and campers. Alpin Haus also expects to hire 12 new employees as a result of the expansion.

“Over at Saratoga we’ve grown continuously over the years... Just to be able to tie in all the sales, really helps a lot,” Heck said about the expansion.

As much as this expansion is expected to be transformative for Alpin Haus, Heck says it’s always been in the back of his mind to keep upgrading.

“It’s just ongoing, we always look at things incrementally. We’re growing; we just keep trying to figure out what we have to do... That’s how the business got better and we’ve grown,” he said.

“We keep re-investing in our facilities; if we’ve out-grown an area, we looked at different facilities,” he added.

Alpin Haus has been in business for more than 50 years and is one of America’s largest RVdealers.The Saratoga facility sells and services new and used RVs, travel trailers, fifth wheels, and motorhomes. In addition to the Saratoga County sales facility, Alpin Haus operates RV sales locations in Amsterdam and Port Jervis.

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen many families and individuals develop an interest in the RV lifestyle and it’s been our pleasure to help them find the right outdoor recreation vehicle for their needs. Our newly expanded sales facility will better allow us to serve our valued customers,” Heck said.
