I've been with Rick's RV Center for over 25 years. When I'm not thinking about ways to fire our Internet Sales Manager, I'm busy helping our customers with their camping needs. My free time is spent with my wife, Kim, and kids; Jack, Molly, Brian and Danny. Thank you to all of our customer's that keep my kids fed!

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 growing, I work out all the time with my best friend Tom and my muscles are getting really big! I can even bounce my pecs! I have a beautiful wife, Cathy, and 5 awesome kids; Briana, Ashley, Matthew, Tyler and Charlotte.

I've been the Business Manager at Rick's for 18 years. I bought a travel trailer from Brian and had so much fun I never left! When I'm not getting our customer's great terms, I enjoy spending my time with my family at the campground.

When I'm not busy pulling your motorhomes and travel trailers into our service department, I can be found enjoying my Jayco fifth wheel with my amazing wife Diane and our 3 sons; Stephen, Ryan and Matthew.

I've been helping my customer's camp and relax at Rick's RV Center for 20 years! Thank you to all my repeat customers for the past 2 decades of fun! When I'm not helping people find their perfect camper, I enjoy some idle conversation and spending time in my travel trailer with my daughter, Emily.


Kevin Finefield

Sales Associate


Hi, I’m Kevin Finefield. I’ve been at Ricks RV for 11 years, and in the RV industry for 32. At 60 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, and a daughter, Stefanie, who’s married with our three beautiful grand children.

Paul Froeschle and J. Jay

Internet Sales Manager


I've run the Internet Sales Department at Rick's RV for over 11 years. I really enjoy coming into work every day! The only thing I love more is going home to my beautiful wife Stacey and wonderful kids Ben and Emma.

Joe Farkas

Joe Farkas

Sales Associate


I'm entering my 8th year at Rick's RV Center. I grew up in Joliet, and probably know you, or at least one of your family members. I am fun loving, talkative, and spend 86.5% of my time on social media. You will rarely see me without a phone to my ear. I love spending 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


This is my sixth year as the Truck Accessories Manager at Rick's RV Center. I don't own a truck because they don't make a 10 passenger pick up, but I can accessorize yours! Outside of work, my free time is happily spent with my 8 kids and beautiful fiance Angelica.
