About Ricks RV

Ricks RV Chicago

Rick Rizzo, founder and president of Rick's R.V. Center, was born and raised in Joliet, Illinois and graduated from Providence High School. He worked for several years as an apprentice electrician before going to work for his father-in-law in 1979 at Reiter's Trailer Sales and Service on East Washington Street in Joliet.

Rick, by then a veteran of the RV industry, revamped a small building at the corner of Jefferson Street and Interstate 55 and opened Rick's R.V. Center in 1984. Opening as a one-man operation, it wasn't an uncommon sight to see Rick filling LP gas, installing hitches, or talking to customers about truck caps or camping trailers.

It went from being just Rick to 31 full-time people.

"We did it by taking care of customers and by going after repeat sales. That makes all the difference in the world. Now I have three of my (father-in-law) grandsons working here, so we consider it kind of a three-generation family business." - Rick Rizzo


Whatever your RV or truck needs, we probably have it. We offer full service to the units we sell and for those purchased elsewhere.

Full Line of Jayco Brand Products

The business offers customers a full line of RVs from inexpensive popups to 38 foot long trailers complete with microwave ovens, central air, and cable TV. With more than 100 trailers in stock, the customers always have a great selection to choose from. In addition to RVs, Rick's also carries the top names in truck caps, accessories, hitches and much more. Rick's RV carries a full line of Jayco brand products from travel trailers and fifth wheels to popups and truck campers.

The company has received many national awards from Jayco, ranging from Rookie of the Year in 1989 to entrance into Jayco's exclusive Gold Club for excellent sales and customer service. This dedication to customer service has yielded thousands of satisfied customers--many of whom have returned three or more times to purchase new units.

Family is Key Concept at Rick's

You will often be helped by either Rick's father Rich or by Rick's nephews Jeff, Mike or Brian. Because we have a close family relationship we believe in the concept of "good old' family service with a smile." Stop in to see how our service makes us a success!
