Scott's Recreation was founded in Manchester, Maine by Scott Lanpher in 1994 as a used power sports dealership. In 2006, Scott's Recreation expanded into a brand new 5,000 square foot showroom on Rt. 202 in Manchester, just over the Augusta City line. The expansion came about as a result of Scott looking for a new RV for his family. When he found that he needed to travel a great distance to get a competitive price, he thought there was an opportunity to take on selected lines of RV's and offer great pricing to the local customers.
The idea worked! Customer reception and interest far exceeded expectations. Starting with Trail Sport, Trail Cruiser and R-Wagon by R-Vision (a division of Monaco Coach) and Puma by Palomino (a division of Forest River) Scott's Recreation exceeded the first year's sales goal in the first three months! Scott added the same lines to Houlton Power Sports, his power sports business in Houlton, Maine with equally impressive sales numbers. Soon other RV manufacturers started contacting Scott to add their lines. It was at that time Antigua, Homestead, Pine Mountain and Starcraft folding campers by Starcraft were added. By the end of 2006, Kodiak, Eco and Tundra, all Dutchmen Manufacturing products, and Timberlodge and RPM by Adventure Manufacturing were also added to the product line-up. Already in 2008, we have added Sabre by Palomino along with the Cruiser 5th Wheel and Zinger Travel Trailers by Crossroads to our RV lineup. Most recently, we have added a Power Equipment Division to our company. We are now a full line Snapper & Ferris dealer and can assist you with all of your snow blower, lawnmower, power equipment sales, service and parts needs.
