Rick’s RV Chicago

4.9/5 based on 237 Reviews Write a Review

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.

Warranty Service

Rick’s service department was terrific after purchase in April 2019 (Tech - Darryl) and also during our first return visit for warranty work in November. Diane (service writer) and Pat (Tech) did a thorough and quick turn around once all parts were rece Keep Readingived from manufacturer(s). Diane kept us up to date on where our unit was in the process and what the next steps would be. They completed everything that was requested and were a pleasure to work with.

A couple months went by and with the RV being our 1st we had multiple Keep Readingtrouble shooing and standard operational questions from week 1. All our questions and concerns were addressed and resolve successfully by the service dept. A big shot out and thank you for Diane and the Tech Jeremie for being awesome
