Dave Whalen

Sales Manager

Joining the Rick’s RV family back in 2006 was the best career decision I could have made. It was either that or the glue factory, so in hind sight, it wasn’t that hard of a decision. I’m truly blessed to have found a place like Rick’s RV to provide for my family and grow as a person, father and husband. Speaking of family, I have a beautiful wife, Cathy, and 5 awesome kids; Briana, Ashley, Matthew, Tyler and Charlotte.

Kevin Finefield

Sales Associate

Hi, I’m Kevin Finefield. I’ve been at Ricks RV for over 7 years, and in the RV industry for almost 28. At close to 56 years old, the guys at work think I’m crazy, because I enjoy racing off-road motorcycles, mountain bike riding, and camping at the motorcycle races. I’m married to Ginger, and we have a son, Christian, 20, and a daughter, Stefanie, 33, who’s married with our three beautiful grand children.

Rick doesn't let me talk to people face to face, so I run the Internet Department. I've been here for 7 years and love coming to work every day. The only thing I love more is going home to my wife, Stacey, and kids, Ben and Emma.

I'm entering my 5th year at Rick's RV Center. I grew up in Joliet, and probably know you, or at least one of your family members. I love spending my free time with my wife, Alyssa, and our two beautiful daughters. Come in and pick out a new RV... or just come in for a high five!

Bryan Niedermeyer

Truck Accessories Manager

I'm excited to be starting third year at Rick's RV Center. I don't own a truck because they don't make an 10 passenger pick up, but I can accessorize yours! Outside of work, my free time is happily spent with my 8 kids and beautiful girlfriend Angelica.
