May 2017: It’s no secret that life never stops moving forward. No matter how hard we may try, there’s no way to stop your kids, or your family from growing, all you can do is put in the work and hope for the best.
Wade Reeves of Wade’s RV, otherwise known as “Big Wade”, knows this very well. After serving Northeast Oklahoma and the Tulsa area for over 30 years, the business owner and father of three is making room for even more growth thanks to a new sales lot located at 161st and highway 75 in Glenpool.
“This second location has opened up more possibilities for us,” said Big Wade. “We are able to better serve our clients and get our jobs done quicker.”
Customers can expect two different environments of sales and service at each of the Wade’s RV locations. Whether you’re an outdoorsman looking for some service on your camper, or parents getting ready for the family road trip of a lifetime, the team at Wade’s wants to provide you with a facility to accommodate your needs.
“It’s like the best of both worlds for customers,” said Big Wade. “We listened to our customers on what they needed from us, and that has greatly impacted the growth of the stores. This new sales store has more parking ability and space for clients to view more products in a more relaxed environment.”
Thanks to the expansion, Wade’s RV has been able to create more space for indoor storage at the new location with all enclosed, custom services. The business’ services also include RV repair, consignment and parts.
“It’s more than just storage,” said Big Wade, “it’s a service. You can bring your unit in and we can take care of the rest, or if you want us to just park it for you, we can do just that. We like to think of it like a custom-made concierge for your RV.”
The added space also allows for more inventory with selection. Wade’s RV offers a variety of used, pre-owned, and trade-ins as well as new models. Buying is affordable on lines such as Aspen Trail, starting at $98 a month.
“Overall, we try to stay adaptable in this industry,” says Big Wade. “That’s why, as the owner, I try to be hands on in the projects we have going on.”
Big Wade has made the Wade’s RV brand a family business. In fact, all three of his children work for the company. Daughter Amanda Bryant serves in accounting, while his youngest, Maggie Reeves works as an office assistant after school, and Wade R. Reeves, or “Little Wade” is under the mentorship of his father, doing everything from selling RVs to social media management.
“My favorite thing about this job is helping people,” said Little Wade. “I love engaging people with our mission. One of our salesmen likes to think of these RVs like a memory box for customers. I just love to see how the things we do as a company and a family bring smiles and laughs to customers.”
This summer, Wade’s RV will be partnering with Channel 2 on a segment for family road trips, where Little Wade will be shooting on location at resorts such as Shangri Law. Look for them in a special RV with the Wade’s RV and Channel 2 logos every other weekend in June. You can also find Wade’s RV at the Great Outdoor Recreation Show May 20-21 at the Tulsa Expo Center.
