This year marks the 70th anniversary of Hayes RV. Founded in 1947 by Paul and Myrtle Fay Hayes, originally a Gulf service station, has evolved through the years to become a full service RV Dealer serving East Texas and beyond.
Our founders sought other additions to their business through the early years. Some of those included renting utility trailers, selling fishing and hunting equipment and even custom painted and flocked Christmas trees. Interest in the outdoors lead them to begin renting tents, camp stoves, lawn equipment and other things. In the early 1960's they added camping trailers to that mix as a sideline. Soon with the introduction of additional RV products Hayes "sideline" became a major part of their business.
Continuing the family business tradition, son David and his wife Sue purchased the business in 1980 from the retiring founders. Today, the family owned and operated business continues with David, Sue and brother-in-law Andy. We are blessed and gratified to have a team of loyal staff members, some with 20 and 30 years of service.
We believe in more than just selling RV's. To make Hayes RV a truly "one stop" store we employee factory and RV Industry Certified technicians, have one of the largest service facilities in the region, a large parts and accessory store and a business office that provides RV specific lending.
That's a little bit of our story and we hope you know us better now. We would like to know you better and hope to meet you soon.
