Keep Your RV Trailer Cool This Summer

Pete Gives His Video Testimonial With His Legacy Elite
"When I was approaching my retirement, I was looking for my escape and I was looking all over the internet for a robust last forever trailer. I was finding other fiberglass creators and it was on one of the other forums that they said Hey there is this new guy on the block it's this company called Oliver."
