The Fraserway RV team celebrated the anniversary on James Epp’s 65th birthday. James was just 15 years old when his father, Erdman, bought the company.
As part of the festivities, Fraserway RV jackets were presented to the entire Fraserway RV staff – 600 in total. The staff gifted an original work of art depicting truck campers from 1969 and 2019, pencil drawn by a local artist.
This past November, Adventurer Group announced a new Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Simms. Under Simms’ leadership, Adventurer Group is charting the course for the next 50 years.
Truck Camper Magazine congratulates Adventurer Group on this incredible anniversary and achievement. And we thought 12 years was amazing.
