RVAA Re-classifies Distributor Member Category

The membership of RVAA voted to change its by-laws during 2012 RVAA Executive Conference in Chicago, Illinois. The most significant part of the by-law change was the reclassification of the Distributor Member category in Article III Section 2. RVAA distributor members are now classified in one of three categories: Distributor, Retailing Distributor, and Reseller. These categories provide RVAA members a clearer definition of each distributor member. These changes also clearly define RVAA as a Wholesale Distribution Association.

A brief explanation of each category is as follows:

Distributor Category
Engaged as a warehouse distributor that...

  1. >= 80% of sales at wholesale distribution level come from customers other than those owned by business
  2. Carries diversified lines of products
  3. Has adequate inventory of parts, services, and facilities to serve the needs of the market
  4. Produces printed or online catalog, periodicals, and flyers to market to dealers at wholesale level

Retailing Distributor Category
Engaged as a warehouse distributor that...

  1. >= 50% of sales at wholesale distribution level come from customers other than those owned by business
  2. Carries diversified lines of products
  3. Has adequate inventory of parts, services, and facilities to serve the needs of the market 
  4. Produces printed or online catalog, periodicals, and flyers to market to dealers at wholesale level 

Reseller Category
Engaged as a warehouse distributor or retailer that...

  1. Does not fit definition of Distributor or Retailing Distributor
  2. Sells diversified line of products to end users, retail dealers, stores and service companies representing RV aftermarket industry
  3. RVAA is not accepting new member applications in this category – grandfather clause for existing members
