About Rick's...

Ricks RV Center

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. Rick states: "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."

So stop in some time and see all Rick's R.V. Center has to offer.

One of the great challenges facing consumers today is finding a company they are comfortable dealing with and can enjoy their shopping experience. That challenge is overcome at Rick's R.V. Center.

Rick's R.V. Center, a family owned and operated business, has been serving the needs of camping enthusiasts since 1984. Rick's is the largest Jayco recreational vehicle dealer in Illinois.

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 ofJayco 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.

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

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!
